If The Orville proves a brilliant parody, and Discovery fails spectacularly, this might well be the death knell for episodic Star Trek. MacFarlane reveres Trek, and will likely skewer it incisively out of love. Could be hilarious, appalling ... or both.

A point we've perhaps not considered hitherto: Most millennials, even those who are otherwise intelligent, like Abrams' films, and think they're cooler than traditional Trek. If Discovery garners, and, for the most part, holds that audience, there'll be little to no subsequent chance for the kind of series we'd all like to see.

I'll watch the first episode. I'll not subscribe and will thus be forced to engage in shadiness to see subsequent installments ... but I'll not even bother with that if the initial offering instills me with little or no hope.

I have a feeling this is gonna suck.
Johnny Depp is a brilliant actor, but he’s not even in Gene Wilder’s league as Willy Wonka.

I think the universe just exploded because I just agreed with Joe.

it seems like discovery is not in the prime universe but a THIRD universe (also co-owned by bad robot)

if it is then i don't plan to watch anything beyond the first episode on TV

Evidently your intelligence recently increased by a factor of two.

Must be my anti-depressants working.
