SDCC 2016: Star Trek Discovery – Unpopped Review

The next, and possibly the last bit of news I’ll mention out of Comic-Con International: San Diego (SDCC) came from Paramount and CBS. So without further adieu… I’ll leave you to it.

Star Trek: Discovery

This is the new teaser trailer for Star Trek: Discover that was released at SDCC. There were only two other pieces of information released during the event that I could find:

– A Director has been hired for the pilot episode. With Star Trek: Discovery coming out in January of next year, it was only a matter of time until directors started to be hired for the series.

Discovery will take place in the prime timeline set by the original series. The Star Trek movies established by J. J. Abrams introduced an alternate time line that followed beside the original series, but weren’t bound by that timeline. This alternate reality has since been dubbed the “Kelvin” timeline. Well Paramount has officially stated that Discovery will not share that alternate timeline but will instead be part of the same timeline of The Original Series, Next Generation, Voyager, Deep Space Nine, and Enterprise.

– I don’t believe they have announced what century Discovery will take place in, but seeing how Enterprise took place before the original series and was panned by critics and fans, I’d assume that it will take place at least after then.

I am currently not a subscriber of CBS All Access, and do not plan to be one for a single show. But if I hear good buzz surrounding the show, I could see myself doing a free trial, binge watching all the episodes, and the canceling just to get my Star Trek needs satisfied.

Sometimes a film, no matter how much love is involved, fails to meet expectations. That’s where I jump in and break down “The Good,” “The Ehh” and “The Ugh-ly.” My purpose is to try to determine how the film succeeded and how it could have been better. I believe that this process can elevate the film industry and make the film going experience better for all.
