Discovering Star Trek

CBS’s recent attempt at bringing Star Trek back to the small screen has been frustrating.  Lots of starts and stops, a good bit of odd, slightly negative press.  The fact that the show will move to the network’s app is odd, but I suppose that has worked for The Good Fight (which, of course, didn’t have to have a sci-fi budget).  The first trailer for the show dropped recently.  It’s not bad.  Lots of obvious tropes, of course, but that’s to be expected.  Prequel/earlier-in-the-timeline stories are often tricky, but there should be enough space to make this one work.  The question, of course, is will it be as compelling as such a show needs to be to draw and keep and audience.

Star Trek: Discovery premieres this fall on CBS before moving to CBS All Access.
