Yeah, The Orville is way better than STD. Hopefully CBS doesn't ruin the new Picard tv show they are working on with the same things they ruined Discovery with (new Klingon design, new ship interior design language, too much action, etc.)

Ahhh, by STD you mean Star Trek Discovery? Finally got it due to that comparison.

What a bad acronym for the show though. Makes it look like you're talking about sexually transmitted diseases

Yeah, I have no clue what CBS was thinking when they chose that title, they know that the fans shorten all of the series titles, they should have realized that STD would be the acronym for Discovery, especially since they knew they were making changes that would be controversial to the Trek fanbase. 

TOS- The Original Series

TNG- The Next Generation

DS9- Deep Space Nine

VOY- Voyager

ENT- Enterprise

STD- Discovery

Following the same rules used for Voyager and Enterprise abbreviations, Discovery should have been shortened to DIS by the fanbase, but Trekkies hated the series so much they purposefully shortened it to STD instead.
