PROS:
- POC women as THE main characters, hell fuckin yes
- a bunch of weird-ass aliens we haven't seen yet, including "We Only Live To Know Exactly When We Die" Guy aka possibly the most goth species ever
- JESUS I FORGOT TELEVISION SHOWS CAN LOOK LIKE MOVIES NOW
- it really seems like they tried to make it its own stylistic thing rather than hitch it to the new movies, or the 90s series, or the 60s series, which: hey, that's daring and good

CONS:
- "TEN YEARS BEFORE KIRK" just means we're gonna get a bunch of weird allusions to the original series in here that will likely fall flat considering how HILARIOUSLY HIGHER the production value in this is
- also, did we REALLY need to retry Enterprise. Really.
- Klingon faces look like horseshoe crab underbellies now I guess
- oh. right. CBS Access. i forgot. they could've just put "COMING SOON TO TORRENT SITES EVERYWHERE" and it'd have the same effect

@irisjaycomics i'm actually diggin the new klingons! I always felt like there was a lot of wasted potential in klingon designs and i'm into seeing a series push it a bit v😗v

Iris Jay @irisjaycomics

@qwilman this is fair! I guess I really gotta see them in action...

@irisjaycomics i'm really hoping to see some crazier alien designs, plus i hope they're not too afraid to do a handful of their own shit. a big part of why star wars is really exciting all of a sudden is because for the first time in my life i don't know what's going to happen in star wars! i'm interesting in that happening to trek

@irisjaycomics though i have to admit i'm pretty broken hearted over the fact that we'll probably never see the old trek universe again outside of like ST:O :/

@irisjaycomics oh also the uniforms are kind of a big bummer. I really miss the color.

@qwilman no YEAH, that really surprised me. you'd figure they would go for that!
