Goofs

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 »

My opinion is neutral so far, but Star Trek purist will hate this series.
24 September 2017 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The creators are trying to make a new Star Trek series that will appeal to modern audiences but at the expense of continuity. The technology and appearance of the ship is far more advanced than any of the series were. The ship is slick and shiny like a luxury cruise liner.

I get that they wanted to make the Klingons really intimidating and monstrous but this is set ten years before the original series in which Klingons had smooth foreheads. The change in appearance was glossed over in the DS9 crossover episode and explained in a story arc in Star Trek Enterprise. Some people hated that storyline and wished they did not explain it, saying that fans should accept that the restricted budget for TOS did not allow for fancy Klingon prosthetics and costumes. I thought those Enterprise episodes were brilliant and now they've been cancelled out by this new series. Very annoying!

The only way I can enjoy watching this is to pretend all the other series never even happened, as little is recognizable as being Star Trek save a few familiar sound effects. Some thought Enterprise ruined Star Trek, attacking Berman and Braga. I think many more will hate this series. Some will love it for being completely different.

However, it's unfair to judge a whole series on the pilot episode. It started to get interesting in the last ten minutes and ended in a way that will make some want to know what happens next. It may be fine as a stand-alone series and perhaps as it unfolds it will start to feel like it fits in with the Star Trek franchise.

As for Sonequa Martin-Green, her dialogue seems a little wooden (and not even Vulcan wooden) as though she's reading it off a teleprompter. Voyager's Kate Mulgrew had a terse mannerism that was distracting that I eventually got used to so I supposed I'll get used to this too. I'll have a long wait though and only if the series is released on DVD/Blu-ray. The show can't be watched by people on low incomes as you have to be able to afford high-speed Internet service (I have stepped wireless to keep my bill as low as possible) and the monthly fee for the streaming service, or the cost of full-tier cable in Canada to get the Space channel, which is airing it.
