    NEW TRAILER IS UP. A MINDBLOWING 2MIN AND 24SEC'S OF FOOTAGE :D



    Lieutenant Saru (science officer on board the USS Discovery, a new alien species):

    "My people were biologically detereminded for one purpose alone. To sense the coming of death...........And I sense it coming now!"

    Thís quote will define the 'feel' from the 6th spin-off TV Series, "STAR TREK: DISCOVERY". I am thrilled to see it this September on Netflix. Moreover, season 1 will have not 13 but 15 episodes! :-O

    By jolly, I like it already! Here you have more screencaps. For a TV Series it looks incredibly 'cinematic':

    One observation is that Discovery looks more like Kelvin Timeline Trek, it's got the JJ look notably the Klingons. Though the visuals looked fantastic

    For me the storyline needs to be Prime TimelineTrek and than you get me very happy. I think Lt. Saru's remark is to me more telling than the aesthetics. And his character alone could make "Star Trek: Discovery" more gritty and more serious than previous Trek-shows. He could become the 'Odo' of "Discovery".

    BTW, I loveee the uniform designs. They have the darkblue colors of the "Enterprise"-uniforms but in essence have this wonderful tailor/slim fit appearance, like the uniforms in "The Next Generation".

    It looks so good it almost has me considering paying for CBS All Access... buuuttt I refuse to pay for a BS streaming service that I'll only use for one show.

    Thankfully it's on Netflix in the UK, I'll be able to stream it on 4K which is a added bonus.

    I don't think they have shown us the USS Discovery yet.

    It's quite easy to install a VPN IP-Hide Programm, so you can watch European Netflix :)

    No, I think it's the USS Shenziou, led by Captain Georgiou (Michelle Yeoh). "Discovery" will certainly be a more darker, grittier Trek-spin-off. I mean, if Lt. Saru says this in the trailer. And I love it!:

    Ahhh ok, I understand now. The Netflix trailer is slightly more flashier, whereas the larger CBS All Access trailer (2min 23sec) has more of a cinematic score attached to it, including a more Trek-like tune at the end.

    Still holding out for DS9 on HD though I don't think it will happen, I have Netflix which has all seven seasons of DS9 in SD.

    Don't wait for it please, as it is confirmed that CBS/Paramount won't release "Voyager" and "DS9" on BluRay. Watch it ASAP on Netflix. “STAR TREK: DEEP SPACE NINE” is the smartest Trek-spin-off so far. Whereas "TNG" and "VOY" all have a more standalone episode approach, "DS9" is the one with an ongoing narrative/storyline throughout 7 seasons. It engages in exploration and political conflicts in a way that later "Battlestar Galactica" and "The Expanse" did/do and what "Star Trek: Discovery" will most likely do as well.

    If you start with it, the first two seasons are perhaps a bit....hard to sit through (the same with "TNG" by the way). So I advise you to follow this episode guide I created:
     
    SEASON 1: Start with the series-opener “Emissary, Parts I & II”, which has an important guest role of Captain Jean-Luc Picard. The historical background story of Commander Sisko is the Borg attack at Wolf 359.
    SEASON 1: Skip the rest of the season and start watching the last three episodes, which in essence is the season-finale; “Duet / In The Hands Of The Profets
    SEASON 6 of "Star Trek: The Next Generation": I know, it's a bit of a detour, but only watch the two-parter "Birthright Parts I & II". A very nice cross-over episode that gets you in the DS9-mood.
    SEASON 2: Continue with the three-parter, season-opener “The Homecoming / The Circle / The Siege”, which is a great 130 mins that takes an in-depth look at First Officer's Kira Nerys' people, the Bajorans. Frank Langella has a wonderful role in this 'TV-Movie'.
    SEASON 2: Also watch the mid-season two-parter "The Maquis, Parts I & II", which touches the motivations of various terrorist cells in today's geopolitical world.
    SEASON 2: The season-finale is in essence a three-parter as well, the three episodes “The Collaborator / Tribunal / The Jem’Hadar”. You'll be on the edge of your seat when First Contact is made with The Jem'Hadar in the Gamma Quadrant.
    SEASON 3: After this you basically start watching all episodes. Beginning with season 3 opener "The Search, Parts I & II".
    ● Then keep watching everything until the SEASON 7 finale "What You Leave Behind, Parts I & II". You will love it :-)!!

    Obviously, if you like you can watch all seasons, including the full seasons 1 and 2. But that's up to you :-).

    Ooowh, and to make the transition between "The Next Generation" and "Deep Space Nine" a bit smoother, here are some great cross-over scenes from "The Emissary Parts I & II" :-):

    I watched all the DS9 episodes when they were first aired, I had all the episodes on VHS also so watched the episodes numerous times, my next rewatch will be a full marathon. I live in hope Paramount will change there minds.

    I know I sound like a complete Ignoramus here as I stopped following the tv series after the end of DS9 and I have only watched the subsequent movies when I had nothing else to do so forgive my question but how is this series in relation to the new movies continuity?

    It takes place in the original timeline.

    "the the series will take place in the Prime (William Shatner) timeline as opposed to the Kelvin (Chris Pine) timeline to avoid conflict with future movies."

    It's unlikely, the series just isn't for me unfortunately. The trailer I saw didn't look too bad, though.
