Was hoping Axanar would actually get made. Since it may have actually avoided some of that overdose by being a war movie.

But the IP owners don't seem to want it getting done. :x



Axanar is dead in the water b/c CBS understands it treats its source material with more reverence and it looks better than what they are offering.

No lie and no hyperbole.

Not the first time CBS has killed a promising new born from this lineage. They have a long history of slitting the throat of any pretender that might upstage them or threaten their complete control of the IP.

I watched it last night.
It was certainly different than prior Star Trek tv shows and movies.
I think that I will need to watch it again (I DVR'd it) before I can really comment.

Didn't they have to make a lot of stuff different due to some IP ownership being split? Not owning the rights to all of it?

Fucking IP shit nowadays.. :roll:

I'm not exactly sure about the specifics of that BUT I do remember reading somewhere that in the ever occurring shuffle of corporations, Paramount (who I think holds the rights of the Star Trek franchise) had somewhere along the line been acquired by (I think) whoever is (or was) the owner of CBS. CBS is doing the tv series. Paramount and CBS got split off from each other. CBS had interest in doing a TV series...part of the corporate split gave CBS limited rights to do a tv series BUT there was a time limit on them being able to do so. So Discovery was them coming out just under the deadline expired.
I could be wrong about this or on some of the details but this was my recollection.

From watching last night's episode, it appears that the shows makers have certainly taken alot of liberties with the canon that exists from prior Star Trek tv and movie products.

The Klingons certainly look quite a bit different.....but then so did the Klingons in Star Trek Next Generation from those in the original series.

Questions have been asked before about that (without much of an explanation):



:lol:

And the ship interiors (Both Klingon and Federation) look nothing like you have ever seen in any of the prior shows and movies, which is pretty remarkable when considering that this Discovery series (supposedly) takes place shortly after the Jonathon Archer "Enterprise" and about 10 years before Kirk's Enterprise in the original series.

It is an excellent show, just ignore the slightly odd 15% like the engineer/doc gay couple or whatever strikes you as SJWism.
The Klingons are really bad-ass, as in killing fed crewman to eat them. Captain Lorca is a psycho, miracle chick an outcast, episode 5 has Joe Plumber telling the Captain how and why Star Fleet is full of shit and he would not shed a tear :D

CBS is like an aging pimp with its Star Trek hooker.
