    YAY! It was very good, though some of it was a little iffy. A solid 9/10

    Much closer to traditional trek in terms of format, ambience as well as mood. Give it a shot if that is your thing.

    One thing I definitely appreciate about Strange New Worlds is all the new people it's bringing to the forums.

    Massive Yay! It's interesting, feels like Star Trek, and the cast is fantastic.

    Pacing much much better than Discovery and Picard. Love that they are going with a more episodic formula. The premiere episode was not great but not awful either. I have been vocal about some continuity issues with some aesthetics, characters etc. but getting past that....pretty sure I'm gonna enjoy it more than the other two shows. Despite some issues i have the with the reworked 1701. Its is FABULOUS rework and still maintains the iconic silhouette.

    Oh and the opening is really good and we FINALLY get the return of the TOS Font and an almost full reworked TOS theme song...:D

    I'm a sticker for continuity. As I mentioned i had a few issues with it. At this point though the prodcuers of these shows dont seem to care as much as previous runners. Everyone is gonna vary on what they will tolerate that's changed.

    Cautiously optimistic so far....

    A pretty much unanimous Yay? Is that a first for Star Trek?! Sure as heck feels like it. It is off to a great start and I’m looking forward to the next episode.

    The consensus is astonishing. But then, after all these decades so is the show.

    We did not have this for TNG. I remember being startled about three weeks after it premiered when an acquaintance at a barbecue started raving about how great it was - he was a casual fan, and the first person I'd encountered who didn't have some objection to it. And it went on that way, for years...

    Some unnecessary retcons and a very sloppy costume department, but likeable characters and an optimistic vision of the future. I'm cautiously optimistic.

    It is confidently Trek and unashamed of being somewhat of a Disco spinoff. If Stacey Abrams is the US politician who made a cameo that represented Discovery, Eric Adams (Mayor of NYC, often parodied on Saturday Night Live) would be the US politician who would embody Strange New Worlds (same/similar ideas to generations past but with all the swagger)

    No, not really. The premiere was very good.

    I’m uncomfortable with all this positivity and agreement. You folks are freaking me out.

    It's better than the rest of the CBS Trek and shows good promise.

    I absolutely LOVE SNW. I suspected it was going to become my favorite Trek series of all time, and now I'm almost sure it will. And I've only seen the first episode!
