    So a 2020 premiere is looking more and more likely! That'll be three Star Trek shows airing in the same year!
    None of which are (legally) watchable unless you pay for CBS's streaming service.

    Thanks for feedback. It seems only the US and Canada have the trailer from their respective streaming service. CBS all-access is available in a few other countries now.

    This is the first time I've never been able to find other versions of a CBS trailer on youtube. I don't know why CBS would care.

    CBS/Paramount has always had a tendency to panic regarding their various intellectual properties....including the IP's involved in the Trek-verse....as their recent heavy-handedness with Trek-verse fan films and fan series demonstrates :/

    I agree with you in general, but in specifically the case of fan films, I can't blame CBS for what happened... I blame the Axanar folks. :-(

    IMO Axanar is at least 100x better than anything being produced by CBS/Paramount but yeah it did seem more like a production that Alec Peters would've been better off pitching to CBS/Paramount

    Just watched ep. 1.

    No spoilers, I loved it to bits. It appeals to my juvenile sense of humour.

    Long before you and I were born, others beat these benches with their empty cups,
    To the night and its stars, to the here and now with who we are.

    Another sunrise with my sad captains, with who I choose to lose my mind,
    And if it's all we only pass this way but once, what a perfect waste of time.

    heard A lot of bad things about this, and wondered if i should bother watching it, then i remembered the cave man show, i don't remember the name of the show, it was a SHORT lived tv series based on the geiko cave man, i heard how bad it was so i didn't bother trying to watch it then one night i got bored so i decided to give it a try and , rurns out it wasn't too bad, at least not as bad as i thought it would be, today i would give it a 5 it was just ok, didn't hate it, didn't love it, it was just ...eh...ok.., and that is what can be said about this show there are a few smiles to it and a couple of huh's , any way see for your self. this is the premier episode of the show.

    No, it's not available in my region.

    I have to turn on my VPN but that'll have to wait for later... If it works then I'll let you know.

    As I understand it, this show is about the misadventures of a bunch of entry level Starfleet cadets.

    What is the big deal about a bunch of cadets? I mean, they just don't make that big a difference unless they're asleep at the switch when phasers need to fire or some such.

    They're Ensigns so they're academy graduates but otherwise yes that is the point of the show.
    Please do me a huge favour and help me be with the love of my life.

    I was looking for trailers on CTV, but discovered the pilot is free (Canada).

    Having now seen episode two, I can definitely say it's the kind of show you need to watch two or three times to catch all the nods and winks to Star Trek's history.

    Long before you and I were born, others beat these benches with their empty cups,
    To the night and its stars, to the here and now with who we are.

    Another sunrise with my sad captains, with who I choose to lose my mind,
    And if it's all we only pass this way but once, what a perfect waste of time.

    I find it funny that the violent borderline psychotic security chief is a Bajoran. That seems so different than the Bajorans we saw in the past

    I loved the expression of "Oh no, not this guy again." on the face of the Starfleet officer at the embassy when Mariner and Boimler dumped the drunk and insensible Ko'rin on their doorstep.

    I'm really, really enjoying this show so far. It feels like comfort food. It's a familiar aesthetic, and while irreverent, stops short of being a parody. And underneath the hyperactive humor is genuine, classically-Trek heart and affirmation. This show will absolutely keep me satiated during the wait for Disco season 3. Very very satisfied Trekkie here.

    I see AliExpress has Lower Decks style uniforms for sale. Shame they're not in my size.
