Star Trek Discovery (2017)


#1645

I don’t really know where to put this - sounds a little sketchy but more Michelle Yeoh can’t be a bad thing?


Picard show confirmed
#1646

Are there enough studios out there to make all these spinoffs? Disney seems able to do this with Star Wars and Marvel, but CBS could end up like DC: i.e. with a bunch of flops.


#1647

Just need to keep getting Netflix to pay for International rights and they will have plenty of cash.


#1648

But DC had cash too…


#1649

I noticed this was available to purchase on itunes now, at $34.99 for the season. Which is cool, since I don’t need to sign up for the CBS streaming service.


#1650

The season isn’t that long, and CBS All Access is $5.99/month … just saying.


#1651

When does season 2 start?


#1652

January 17.


#1653

I liked the second Short Trek. But wow, it certainly sets up an interesting future for the USS Discovery.


#1654

I am so pissed at Netflix they did not license Short Treks for us international fans. I am missing a bunch of story that seems to link the seasons :-/


#1655

Do I need to be a subscriber to view the Short Treks?

Also, who is your favorite character? I think my only favorite “young” character is Tilly.

I got an email from CBS All Access. They’re offering a free month, use the promo code WINTER by 12/26/18.

I’m thinking that sounds like a good idea. I’ll catch up on the Short Treks that are out, and keep going with the Original Series rewatch that we’re doing.


#1657

Thanks for the tip!

I watched the Harry Mudd Short Trek tonight. Very nice. They know how to tell a complete story in 16 minutes. I’ll try to watch the other 3 Short Treks tomorrow night, in anticipation of the new season coming on Thursday.

Unfortunately, I think my free month will run out right before the 2nd episode of the season airs next week.


#1659

I watched the other three Short Treks tonight. God, these are so good! I wouldn’t mind a season of just Short Treks. Who needs a 44 minute show when they can write these excellent 15 minute stories and make them so good?

Season 2 premieres tomorrow. I’m pretty pumped now after watching all these excellent Short Treks.


#1660

I’m considering not watching the new season. I liked the first season plot, but I was not impressed by a lot of the performances. The ship is too blue inside, too.


#1661

I would >:(

(They’re not available in the UK)


#1662

Merry Christmas, non-American people!


#1663

Oh nice, will have to have a look later.


#1664

The Short Treks are great, recommended. I liked them more than the season 2 premiere.
