From the Twitch Live Stage at New York Comic Con 2017, IMDb LIVE host Kevin Smith talks to Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada about the development of the Marvel franchise, his history at Comic Con and more.
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.
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.
The design of the USS Discovery bears a strong resemblance to the original concept design (by Ralph McQuarrie) of the refitted Enterprise for the canceled 1970s film Star Trek: Planet of the Titans. When that film was canceled, the design was also considered for the canceled television series "Star Trek: Phase II". See more »
Although Michael Burnham is often referred to as a mutineer, the crew of the USS Shenzhou didn't knowingly disobey the captain's orders, nor were they imprisoned for being mutineers, so there was no mutiny as such. Michael was simply, individually, insubordinate to her superior officer. 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 envisioned.
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
