|The internet, as you know, is a global communications network used primary|
to look at porn, trash other people's worldview and to discuss Star Trek.
|Spoiler alert: Turns out Discovery is|
actually a cooking show staring Neelix.
|Sometimes our nit-picking is ridiculous,|
and sometimes Benedict Cumberbatch is
grossly miscast as Khan...freaking Khan.
|Maybe it's a high-tech, super-strong|
alloy that just looks like particle

Speaking of design choices, holy shit do the Klingons look different. When I first saw the new look, the part of my brain responsible for head-canon immediately switched on. Maybe they're a different kind of Klingon, or mutant Klingons or space orcs but no, it's made clear fairly early on that this is what Klingons look like now. Deal.
|Ball's in your court cosplayers.|
|"Get a medic over here!|
He's lost a lot of Pepto..."
|Pictured: future people, doing|
space things. What can I say?
I guess I'm just a word smith.
|He's sort of Spock with a little|
Arnold J. Rimmer thrown in.
Oh, and did I mention that this was a Star Trek show featuring a strong female lead? Two in fact? Who interact with one another and talk about things other than a man? I'm not an expert here, but I think this show might pass the Bechtel test, something Star Trek hasn't always been the best at.
|Full disclosure, while there was a radiation decontamination scene, but it was a |
million times less awkward and weirdly sexual than the ones on Enterprise.
|Hey, great job everybody, but seriously,|
12 years between Star Trek shows?
That was just...unacceptable.
*Fun fact: There are official abbreviations for the various Stars Trek. TOS for The Original Series, TNG for The Next Generation. Discovery's official abbreviation is DIS, which, yeah, I'm glad they clarified that too, because by all rights it should be STD.
