A police detective in the asteroid belt, the first officer of an interplanetary ice freighter and an earth-bound United Nations executive slowly discover a vast conspiracy that threatens the Earth's rebellious colony on the asteroid belt.
A century before Captain Kirk's five-year mission, Jonathan Archer captains the United Earth ship Enterprise during the early years of Starfleet, leading up to the Earth-Romulan War and the formation of the Federation.
When you presume that the legacy Star Trek time-line applies to this series:
The insignia on the uniforms in this series are known as the "delta" emblems classic to the USS Enterprise crew in the Prime time-line. In canon, that insignia was devoted ONLY to those serving on the Enterprise until it became the fleet wide insignia after Kirk's historic five year mission. The Original Series Court Martial shows non-Enterprise crew wearing the Delta emblem. It was not until The Motion Picture, a decade later, that the emblem was 'retconned' into represented all of Starfleet - but it is false to say that it was canonical to only the USS Enterprise, when that was never a formal decision.
However, This time-line was reset at the day of Kirks Birth due to Director and Writer J.J. Abrams addition to the Romulan Mining Vessel. This new time-line exists within the 10 years prior to Kirk's command of the NCC-1701 U.S.S. Enterprise. While this new time-line seems to be irrelevant to the Insignia, it cannot be discounted that this new Timeline Change may have affected the back story this Insignia. Especially when you consider the new time-line, Kirk was also most Court Martial and kicked out of StarFleet for cheating on the Kobayashi Maru test. In the legacy time-line, Kirk was award and recognized for his original thinking. The new Timeline was not as kind to Kirk for this cheat. See more »
I was so excited to see a vulcan (human? lol) on deck in episode one. After losing Leonard Nimoy, really wanted a vulcan that would show as strong a character as he did in the past. The gal, meaning no offense, who is playing human but raised Vulcan (Burnham) is so disappointing. She has no presence like Leonard Nimoy or Nichelle Nichols. Her voice is disappointing too. She would be better in a lesser part and replaced with another gal who could deliver. I blame casting. It takes a certain actor to catch attention while in a sci fi series and in particular in a Star Trek series. I believe the fans except so much. It bothers me enough not to continue watching the series or even recommend it to others. The rest of cast seems wonderful so far but I have watched enough series to know that a series lead cannot be held up by rest of cast. Eventually, it suffers. I am a staunch Star Trek fan and am sorely disappointed. Thank you for listening to my opinion.
