    Anybody notice that on ads the CBS eye is turning into the Starfleet symbol? I wonder what its all about?

    I noticed it while watching football this weekend. At first, I thought maybe I had missed a quick commercial for Picard or something...but then I saw it again.

    I kind of like it.

    Yeah, I saw it in almost every promo for a CBS show all weekend.

    gotta figure it’s promoting Disco S3 and Picard.

    Yes, I saw a brief flash of a solid red Starfleet symbol (or maybe it was a black one on a red background ?), yesterday while watching Survivor. I assume it was a feeble attempt at subliminal advertising to get viewers to sign up for CBS All Access.

    Deffo like what they did with subliminal advertising in movie theaters decades ago.

    Or because "Picard", a shiny new series, is nigh on release.

    Definitely an evil plot. The KGB is most likely involved. You should call your local law enforcement agency. Make haste.

    Given that there are two things people watch on CBS All Access, Star Trek and The Good Fight, this should not be surprising.

    Pure advertising gimmick.

    So yeah...what else was it supposed to be?

    "Pure philanthropic benevolence" for the enjoyment of the audience, with no other assigned motive?

    It is a good sign that CBS is viewing Star Trek as a major profit source now.

    I’m a bit mentally chuckling at the idea of a Picard promo poster next to a NCIS New Orleans promo featuring Pride giving Picard a side eye, at CBS headquarters
