Twitter Had Strong Feelings About the Star Trek: Discovery Premiere

1/6Romulus

The first scenes of Star Trek: Discovery were jaw-dropping, not just for the cinematic production, but the two women of color filling up the screen.

It should be noted that while Discovery may not had reached the pinnacles of its predecessors, the television landscape has changed dramatically in recent years. There are so many streaming services, after all, and it's an uphill battle to make us want to subscribe to yet another.

Darren Franich of Entertainment Weekly said the first two episodes of the show were a little slow, but he praised stars Sonequa Martin-Green and Michelle Yeoh.

In order to watch anything beyond last night's series premiere, Americans have to subscribe to CBS All Access, the network's attempt to create a streaming service that stands alongside services like Netflix, Hulu, HBO Now, ad infinitum. Episode 2 will drop on All Access immediately following the conclusion of Episode 1 at 9:35 pm. But those were movies, self-contained narratives that began and ended in a single sitting - and as much as the people behind Star Trek: Discovery insist that they've made a 15-hour movie, that's not the case. If you live in the US, you can watch the series on CBS All Access. "On some level, Discovery knows both of those things, and that's why it's a show I'm eager to keep watching".

Spock's signature knockout move from The Original Series makes a reappearance via Vulcan-raised Burnham, who uses the nerve pinch to knock out her superior officer (though not for very long - perhaps its ineffectiveness due to the well-known difficulty of non-Vulcans mastering the technique).

And yet, that sequence - shot in Jordan - looks awesome, as does everything else in the show, be it the ships, costumes, sets, props, visual effects or even the new spin on an opening credits sequence.

Star Trek: Discovery's main title sequence puts its best Vulcan salute forward.

When is the next episode of Star Trek: Discovery released on Netflix? Discovery's opening episode, meanwhile, sees the Shenzou investigate a damaged Federation array only to come across a hidden Klingon vessel - though the end results there were slightly more violent... In that specific sense, then, Star Trek: Discovery is now a failure, though that might certainly change.

So far there's been as much discussion about Star Trek: Discovery's distribution model as there has been about Star Trek: Discovery.

"From the original series to The Next Generation, Enterprise and everything in between, Star Trek has managed to alter itself with every new iteration, bringing a sense of undiscovered wonderment alongside a fresh-faced crew".
