    I don't see a significant difference in Rok-Tahk's behavior before and after the translation reveal. She seemed fairly aggressive to me when incensed both before and after, and if you add the frustration of being assumed to be a scary monster just based on her appearance and be unable to dispel that notion due to the language barrier, you can explain any discrepancy you perceive. She didn't exactly shy away from the fight with the robots or Gwyn. In fact, she took swings at her opponents.

    I thought the pilot was simply wonderful.

    The opening titles were gorgeous and I really love the design of the USS Protostar.

    Watched it. Enjoyed it. Looking forward to where it's going to go.

    The animation is quite impressive.

    I like the tone.

    Some cybernetic creatures have programming that gives them a gender. Look at that C3PO clone in "The Phantom Menace"... looked like him, but female programming.

    I'm actually a bit sorry that I knew Rok-tak was a little girl beforehand. Otherwise, I'd have gotten a major jaw dropper when the translator kicked in.

    My theory about all these familiar AQ races deep in the DQ - offspring of liberated Borg drones. They assimilate people from all over the AQ and reassign them to different locations where they’re needed. Something happened to the parents and the kids were abducted as “The Unwanted”.

    Curious about Zero. IIRC, the Medusans of TOS’ time were supposed to be masters of navigation. Why, then, does Zero not know how to pilot a starship? Has deep space navigation become a lost art to them? Or has Zero been separated from its “collective” early on in its development, never having learned such skills?

    Medusans are Chekov, not Sulu.

    Navigation does not mean flying and maybe not everyone is taught said skills.

    OK, posting before reading thread, so forgive me.

    1. Visually gorgeous.

    2. Very Clone Wars/Star Wars-ish in look and vibe in parts. Especially the bad guys. Diviner in a Vader-ish cylinder. Reds & black colors. Bad guy droids. Hooded figures. Mining chase/escape thing very JJ new Star Wars. Diviner looks a tad pike Snape.

    But I did not mind at all, just an observation.

    3. The big thing is not so much that it is targeted at kids, but at kids who know nothing about Star Trek. At all. Gonna need some exposition. To be expected.

    4. Liked the fact that the chatacters were mostly honest with each other. Dal told Gwyn he had nada to do with Fugitive Zero but would help her to get out. She in turn told him the timeline and consequences if he didn't come through. He also told the others he was working for her (after Zero busted him).

    5. Any info/guesses on Gwyn's species? Have they been mentioned before.

    6. Kind of silly with big falls not hurting anyone. But OK. Kids show.

    7. Saw some Ready Room. How the ship got there and what the Diviner is doing (and why) look to be the arcs.

    I enjoyed the premiere more than I thought I would. I really dig the animation style and the design of the Protostar. I didn't read any spoilers, so I didn't know Rok-tak was a girl or that the show starts in the Delta Quadrant. I loved the little cameos from species, such as the Kazon and the Morn (can't think of the race right off) working at the mine.

    The "pew pew pew" button line cracked me up :lol:

    Also, I don't know if Dal's race has been speculated here yet, but did anyone else get a Talaxian vibe? He's got the mohawk and spots and ears, just doesn't have the whiskers.

    No matter where you go, there you are.
    Give it a 9. Surprisingly good; animated Trek is killing it these days.
    I like that while it's clearly a kid's show, it's the good kind: a kid's show that doesn't treat its audience like simpletons and that still has something to offer adults. The main cast are all vivid characters who are fun to spend time with: Gwyn and Zero are going to be favorites for me, but I enjoyed everyone. Amazing visuals, a deft and tasteful approach to some pretty dark subject matter, and a genuinely menacing robot antagonist who actually reminded me of General Grievous (but done much better for my money). The Protostar looks amazing, it was consistently fast-paced and exciting, and it was genuinely cool to see the Hologram Janeway reveal at the end. The semi-comedic Watcher droids looked cool but were a little 'meh' in their execution for me -- and by golly, they had better rescue that adorable little Caitian kid! -- but otherwise, I can't find any fault with it.

    Well, alien biology is probably sturdier than humans' and also different gravity on this planet.

    So, uh yeah... That was really good.

    A- form me.

    It borrows heavily from Star Wars, obviously. Even still, the art design feels so much fresher and creatively inspired than it has been. And the character design is bangers -- both for the heroes and baddies.

    The only reason I didn't give it a higher score is because I thought the editing wasn't quite up to snuff. There were a few really poorly done cuts that had some serious cohesion issues.

    Also, it didn't hurt to have a composer who actually knows what he's doing.

    My only issue was the General Grievous Character was him growing a Beam Cannon from his arms.
    Like seriously, where was he hiding all that extra mass?

    Is he linked to a local replicator somewhere nearby for all the extra parts to form the canon around his arm?

    That's the only explanation that makes sense given his Android/Cyborg body.

    Thanks: I'll check it out.

    No matter how good a navigator you are, you have to know how to steer the specific vessel you're in. Even if I had a preternatural sense of direction (I do not), I couldn't pilot an F14 without learning how.

    My fingers are crossed...
