Star Trek: Discovery - Season Two Premiere | First-Look Trailer

 

Well I for one is very glad to see the classic uniforms returned, and of course the Enterprise. I can say from after watching the entire season one and I'm being honest here, it's a very good show that stays true to the canon material. Now I know the Klingons look weird and I myself ain't happy with their new look, but since TOS they've always been changing. Besides the Klingons, in my opinion, everything else is on point with the prime timeline.

Just in case the first embed link is region locked. This one might work.

After further observations I've noticed that mysterious humanoid at 0:17 to 0:20. The race who, in the Star Trek MMO game, controlled the Bluegill parasites of TNG "Conspiracy," the Elachi of Enterprise "Silent Enemy," and the Solanae of TNG "Schisms." That humanoid is the one and only Iconians. The Iconians are a huge deal. If anyone haven't played the Star Trek MMO you should. It's free 2 play, and it's also prime timeline.

The Iconians:

 

Iconians?

As a long time Trekkie seeing anything related to Discovery pains me, shows just how far out of touch with the old fanbase CBS is. It's sad that The Orville, a spoof of classic Star Trek, is more Star Trek than STD is. Just look at the music choice for this trailer, fans skewered Star Trek Enterprise for having a vocal opening theme, and CBS goes and puts a rock song in this trailer, not to mention half the trailer is action sequences *facepalm*. I just hope that at least one of the 4 other Star Trek projects that CBS is rumored to be working on is actually designed for old school Trekkies. One of the projects supposedly has involvement from Patrick Stewart, so fingers crossed they don't ruin it.

On a side note though, Anson Mount looks like a totally different person in this than I'm used to. I know him from Hell on Wheels, so seeing him without the beard and hearing him without the accent is jarring.

Since I'm not a Star Trek fan, I can watch and enjoy these new shows and movies for what they are, without comparing them to the original ones, and for me Discovery was an ok show worth watching if you like the theme.

And this trailer makes me want to see what the second season has to offer.

Me too, but I'm saying this as a Star Trek fan since I started watching TNG way back when I was 7yrs old lol. What makes me so interested in this series is that it shows you the mysterious parts of Star Trek that we know little to nothing about, like for example Section 13, The Mirror Universe, and now what looks to be the Iconians.



Can't wait for the Redlettermedia video on it!



Should probably not reveal who is on the ship in the thread title, there are those who don't watch trailers before watching a show and this information wasn't given away in the finale.

Also that ship is not the Enterprise A as you say in the post, that is the Enterprise NCC - 1701 , the A version wont be for around 30 more years after Kirk and Co set this ship to self destruct in the Search for Spock.



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

Oh I always thought the first one was A.



Looks like more action fluff to me. I did finish watching season 1 after first giving up on it. Such nonsense. It wasn't canon at all yet that didn't matter that much, it was just toe cringing bad at points. The Orville however is also toe cringing, yet in a good way.

Both and anything else pales in comparison to The expanse, which was cancelled of course for being too good. Amazon prime has picked it up yet who knows how that will go. I'll buy and rewatch the first 3 seasons on blu-ray, great stuff. It did what Mr Robot could not, get better and even better in season 2 and 3.
