A police detective in the asteroid belt, the first officer of an interplanetary ice freighter and an earth-bound United Nations executive slowly discover a vast conspiracy that threatens the Earth's rebellious colony on the asteroid belt.
A century before Captain Kirk's five-year mission, Jonathan Archer captains the United Earth ship Enterprise during the early years of Starfleet, leading up to the Earth-Romulan War and the formation of the Federation.
This series takes place in the prime universe, not the alternate universe, also known as the 'Kelvin Timeline.' See more »
When you presume that the legacy Star Trek time-line applies to this series:
The insignia on the uniforms in this series are known as the "delta" emblems classic to the USS Enterprise crew in the Prime time-line. In canon, that insignia was devoted ONLY to those serving on the Enterprise until it became the fleet wide insignia after Kirk's historic five year mission. The Original Series Court Martial shows non-Enterprise crew wearing the Delta emblem. It was not until The Motion Picture, a decade later, that the emblem was 'retconned' into represented all of Starfleet - but it is false to say that it was canonical to only the USS Enterprise, when that was never a formal decision.
However, This time-line was reset at the day of Kirks Birth due to Director and Writer J.J. Abrams addition to the Romulan Mining Vessel. This new time-line exists within the 10 years prior to Kirk's command of the NCC-1701 U.S.S. Enterprise. While this new time-line seems to be irrelevant to the Insignia, it cannot be discounted that this new Timeline Change may have affected the back story this Insignia. Especially when you consider the new time-line, Kirk was also most Court Martial and kicked out of StarFleet for cheating on the Kobayashi Maru test. In the legacy time-line, Kirk was award and recognized for his original thinking. The new Timeline was not as kind to Kirk for this cheat. See more »
Horror. War. Racism. Desecration of the Corpse of Gene Roddenberry. (Also: cheap CGI, dull story, lame acting)
The positive reviews must be paid by CBS.... :(
The show is horror.
The topic of the show is the epic battle between good and evil. This is
corporate-military brainwashing, financed with big Hollywood dollars.
This is not a bright future for humankind like Gene Roddenberry
The show also has quite some racist slurs, Klingons are "by nature" the
evil aggressor. Far from the great Klingon stories in TOS/TNG (like
"Errand of Mercy", TOS S1 E26). Some scenes ("we have to shoot first")
are - from an ethical standpoint of view - unworthy and on the
intellectual level of goons and bruisers ("i get my self esteem from
showing that I am the boss")).
The plot of the first two episodes is so shallow, it could be told in
10 minutes. There is no arc of suspense, no plot twist, no allegory or
morality of the story.
The CGI looks rubbish (in 2017??). It looks like early 2000ies, with
added motion blur and lens flare. Those explosions... like 1999. And
the real sets (like the bridge) look cheap, seriously.
The characters are flat and unmotivated, their intentions are not
derived from the plot, but from artificially introduced "flashbacks".
but what was to be expected... the intro features only 6 names of
actors, but 20, yes 20 (!), names of producers, executive producers,
consulting producers, assistant cocaine producers,
..... a commercial piece of crap, stomping on the body of trek
