Wish I knew. Would have love to have seen episode twoAnyone here participate in the Premiere Watch Party on Wednesday?
After the episode and various interviews,
They surprised folks with Episode Two.
Gotta Say that going its own way was the BEST move DISCOVERY could have made
Now it can practically create its own canon.
MAAAAAANNN...Wish I knew. Would have love to have seen episode two
Sorry You have to wait until next Thursday.
During the chat afterwards, I made a comment about how Alex Kurtzman has saved STAR TREK and made it relevant again. Can you believe that Dude actually responded? He thanked Me and was very appreciative.
Everyone from the series was in that chat. Including Anson Mount.
Other than "MISSION IMPOSSIBLE",dude-
most real Trekkies have Kurtzman on the slushy hit list (check their message boards)
Paramount CEO has the entire production on the chopping block (shitty ratings + other financial problems)
So Discovery team are especially appreciative of all positive feed back
Other than "MISSION IMPOSSIBLE",
PARAMOUNT isn't about to give up on "STAR TREK".
It's another cash cow Franchise with a generational (and a newly growing) fan-base
They're going to wait it out.
CBS' streaming service is still new.
And a rating system for streaming services haven't been completely substantial.
That's been the controversy especially with NETFLIX and DISNEY+
Yeah. Some older ST fans are whining.
I'm on quite a few of those boards, forums, etc.
I've been a fan since the late 60s.
And my (late) Grandfather took me to conventions during the 70s
He wasn't a fan. But He knew I was.
But overall, the newer shows are winning older fans over.
And gaining newer fans.
The news involving "STRANGE NEW WORLDS" has definitely excited fans.
And "LOWER DECKS" has been a fuckin' revelation.
Especially since I initially HATED the idea.
Kurtzman, Fuller, Osunsanmi, Paradise, McMahan, and others are doing a phenomenal job.
And people are becoming more appreciative of it.
It's a GREAT time to be a STAR TREK Fan nowadays.
