    If that's what klingons look like then that is absolutely not what klingons look like.

    I've not even seen Star Trek and I know they don't look like Klingons.

    They look more like something from Species than Klingons.

    Yeah, hopefully this is all just bad rumors with no substance, but I'm not hopeful. I'm hoping those are the new aliens that Michelle Yeoh is supposed to be part of, and that's just a trolling comment. Still,

    Trying to bridge different timelines? Trying to make it the most high-tech looking Star Trek to date? Axing Fuller? This is sounding like a big Star Wars ep. 1-2-3 style mess.

    Looks fantastic - I will definitely watch this! Will bridge the gap for Stranger Things 2 for sure.

    ALso, Michelle Yeoh just does not age. She looks fantastic.

    I think star trek in the older sense of a lot of talking and what not will be of the past. That's not a bad thing though. A lot of the stuff was because graphically they couldn't so any cool sci-fi stuff. You only got really neat sci-fi stuff in the movie versions due to budgets. But now the tech is here for tv too. It shows in this trailer.

    I like the slow talking and stuff. But going from painted green ladies and yorkies in a suit to zero gravity floating with a laser field? It works.

    This also looks like there is more of an overarching storyline. Not just a monster/alien of the week. Type thing. Which is why I enjoy BSG so much over ST.

    Also also. MUDD! He's in there! Winder what they'll have him doing.

    I'm probably in the minority about it, but I don't want it to be too action packed. I know show trailers try to ramp up the action to get attention, so I'm waiting to see what it's actually like.

    DS9 is my second favorite series because of how they had better character development than TNS, and I appreciated the action, but putting DS9 on a contested border and basically at war for season after season started to give me battle fatigue. I appreciated the episodes that focused on weird space phenomena and personal interactions more because of that.

    I'm fine with the idea of a larger, over-arching story over the traditional episodic format. That could be a nice change.

    The Klingons still look really dumb. They looked dumb in the reboot movies, and they look dumb now. Considering how it looks like they're playing a pretty important role in the show, that sucks. Plus, I'd prefer the show follow the canon of the TV series vs. the reboot movies.

    I'm definitely going to check it out, but I'm more wait-and-see than truly excited right now.

    I am happy that Michelle Yeoh looks like a Star Fleet Captain. She still seems like a good choice.

    Ehh. To be fair. The only reason the klingons looked the way they had before was due to constrains in tech to make them look different and more alien like. IN my rewatch of all the series, I have had the complaint that every alien race LOOKS human. While I was okay with TNG version of klingons more so with their nifty ridges, I'm not completely against the redesign for the previous mentioned reason.
