That's the same link I posted above. I'm pretty sure ST fans WILL find it more than interesting!

Hey, so CBS is working on a new Star Trek series! Let's play armchair producer... What would you like to see in a new Star Trek series? Who would be a good new captain? Would you like to see a new Enterprise or and entirely new ship? Time frame?

I think they should either put the new show in the future after the previous shows, especially if they're going to get a brand new Enterprise... Or if they're using a brand new ship (not the Enterprise) they could possibly set it during the time of the Next Generation or maybe even the original series... It could be interesting.

I also think something they could do that hasn't been done before would be to make the new series about a Medical Cruiser... Kinda like a half military drama with the bridge crew and officers and half a medical drama with all the doctors and medical personnel...

What are all your thoughts?

YES, that would be cool! I saw Star Trek Beyond and I loved the new alien girl.

I'm conflicted on the new show (mainly because producers have stated they're going to be all-inclusive which means there are no holds-barred on what is or isn't a family).

That said, it should be a new ship (and will be, if the title Star Trek: Discovery is any indicator). So far we have not seen a captain cast, so I would like another woman. Every captain except 1 has been a man, and women are just too relegated to supporting roles in these series. I have CBS All Access, so I'll more than likely tune in, but they will lose some of my interest/respect if they follow the Abrams timeline. I do NOT like that timeline but am okay with it outside of the timeline of the other shows/films (because I considered it an alternate universe only).

According to the Wikipedia page, ST D will actually focus on the First Officer

The cast list as shown on Wikipedia:

Sonequa Martin-Green as Lt Commander Rainsford
Doug Jones as Lt. Saru, science officer
Anthony Rapp as Stamets, a science officer

Recurring characters:

Michelle Yeoh as Captain Georgiou of the USS Shenzhou
Three Klingons:
Shazad Latif as Kol, the Klingon Commanding officer
Chris Obi as T'Kuvma, a Klingon leader
Mary Chieffo as L'Rell: Battle Deck Commander of the Klingon ship.

The show will take place in the TV show universe and about a decade before TOS.

Recently announced: Jason Isaacs will play Discovery's Captain Lorca in the show, which has been pushed back until the late summer or early fall. Jason Isaacs, to remind everyone here, played Lucius Malfoy in the Harry Potter movies.

Thoughts?

I'm on the fence about the show, tbh. I had a hard enough time getting into Enterprise, I'm not sure I'll even like Discovery.

I missed most of the first episode last night due to the football game ending late, which messed up the scheduling for CBS.

One thing I did see was the use of a hologram communications device. Did they have those in TOS? They need to really understand the technology of the era they are writing for, not necessarily what looks cool.

I don't think they did, but I could be wrong. The Klingons also don't look to be correct for the time period, but then they were definitely not correct during the Enterprise era.

I won't be watching the series (for various reasons, plus that's $8/month I don't need to be spending).
