Star Trek: Discovery

Has anyone seen the first two episodes yet? I will not give spoilers. I'm only asking if anyone has seen it yet.

I have seen it. And I must say it is nice to have Star Trek on TV again. Kinda odd that it's on Fox, but whatever. A pity whatever it was CBS is doing with that other thing turned out like it did.

Well, since I'm not a Trekkie anymore, I wonder what fans of the Fox show will be called.

I've seen both episodes and I'm surprised to find myself saying it, but the writers here could have written this better than that pile of shit. I apologize for my language.

We expected it to be like the Star Trek of our parents' and grandparents' eras and it just resembled how stupid the world is now. I thought it inspired me to write some Trek last night but after watching the episodes again... I was severely disheartened.

I've rather watch The Orville.

Wrighters?

Ville-ains?

Orvilleans?
