Star Trek Discovery Reviews

Post by LadySekhmet » Sun Sep 24, 2017 9:09 pm

Hi,

I thought I would start a new thread for the reviews, if only in an attempt to avoid *spoilers* for folks. I hope that is okay?

Here is one of the first I came across tonight after the airing of the show on the East Coast. I suspect it will be the only episode I'll get to see for a while since I will not be subscribing to the CBS streaming (sorry, Jason - it all comes down to the all-mighty $).

As a non-ST fan, but one who is very familiar with the ST universe (thanks, Dad and college friends), I enjoyed it! :yip I'll probably watch it, once it hits Netflix. I bet Jason will be awesome. My only complaint was that Jason was not in it tonight. And the opening credits were brilliant! And the female role-models are FABULOUS! Well done, ST Discovery crew!

Here's more! So far they all seem to like it.

It's a good start. All favorable reviews.

I had trouble downloading the trailer; maybe you won't.

Some kin of big ad kept popping up that I could not remove and the ad made the page freeze. It worked today.
