    Sums up my feelings on DSC in general.

    It's mine, too! There's no reason to judge the series based on the couple trailers.

    And to be perfectly clear, just in general, but I'm reserving judgement regarding whether or not DSC is "Prime" based upon watching the episodes. If it doesn't fit, for whatever reason, then it's a new time line. I'm not a purist in that way, but I will completely respect the production team's statements about the timeline, then judge it for myself when I see the completed product.

    It may even be an entirely new timeline altogether. The precedent has already been set in the Abramsverse, so why not?

    I, too, will reserve judgment until I get a few eps under the belt. From what I've seen, it looks quite promising and interesting. If the plot, writing and characterization wind up being as good as the production values (wonky transporter room wall appliance notwithstanding), this could be a damn fine show.

    To me, I tend not to get that bogged down with timelines and all. To me, I want good stories and good characters. If they get the history right and divergences from that history have a good reason, I'm fine.

    Also, Mirror Universe.

    Exactly this.

    No, I was referring to Rahul's post, not yours.

    And your renders are fantastic. Unfortunately, I don't really think ship designs are at the top of the list of what the producers of DSC are worried about.

    What I love is that the design of Discovery, as well as some other things in the series, are taken from Trek proposals that never happened. We get to see them in action and brought to life! To me, that's exciting to see!

    Oh boy, those look FANTASTIC! They really, really look like models.

    I have a feeling the CGI of Discovery won't improve much, though. They would certainly be capable to make better shots of, say, the Shenzhou. But it seems they prefer to do more vfx-shots instead of few good ones. So while a simple shot of a spaceship or energy field might look not as good as it could, there will be vfx in almost every scene. Just a guess though.

    Yeah. In two(!) 2-3 minute trailers we've got almost 2 seconds of the main ship for the series! Hooray! From an angle that pretty much hides the whole ship...
    They're hiding it. Because of how it looks.

    The warp effect is nice, though!

    There is no evidence of this.
