OK. Get ready for a bit of a rant regarding Star Trek: Discovery

I think the way CBS is airing this new version is ridiculous ... in the U.S. anyway. Some of that was brought up in an article I wrote about it previously:

https://www.groovypost.com/howto/stream-star-trek-series-star-trek-discovery/

Anyway, it's a dirty trick by CBS to show the first episode on broadcast TV for free. Then make you subscribe to CBS All Access to keep watching it. 

A subscription is $5.99/month and it includes commercials. $9.99/month for commercial free.

I don't care about anything else from CBS, just Trek. That is a helluva lot to pay for one show. Luckily I got my first week free, then a 20% discount on the first month, and then when I went to stop my subscription they gave me one month free. After that though, I am not paying for it. I can wait until it's available on Amazon or wherever. 

As far as the show content is concerned...I am mixed. The obvious look of the Klingons is irritating. Yes, I know the look of Klingons has changed a lot from TOS, motion pictures, to TNG et al. But, in Enterprise they look how we're used to. It's irritating but not a deal killer.

I miss "boring Trek" as each episode seems to be trying to do WAY too much and show tons of effects. Yeah, it looks great, but I miss the mellow, cerebral format of the previous versions. Even when Enterprise came out, it upped the action ante and I wasn't a fan at first. 

It's a decent show, but I don't like it to the point where I NEED to get it week after week... let alone pay $6/month for one show.

I have four weeks left on the free sub right now, so, of course, will keep watching it. That's all I have, for now, I am too tired to think of anything else.

      I have been a fan of Trek for years...all of them TOS, TNG, DS9, Voyager, and yes, even Enterprise. What I'm not a fan of is the new JJ movies. However, I will keep an open mind for the upcoming CBS trek series:
      http://www.startrek.com/article/new-star-trek-series-premieres-january-2017
      Anyway, I cycle through all of the Star Trek Series' throughout the year on Netflix. I have them playing in the background while I am writing articles and what not.
      Anyway, I'm curious how many of our gP readers and members of this forum are also Star Trek fans. Hop on in and let us know your thoughts.
