  8. I only saw the first episode on regular TV, but I can believe the jail part. I'm a bit concerned about the special effects. I don't ever remember communication by holographic interface on Star Trek before, though I am old and perhaps am not remembering well. It does look very similar to Star Wars type communications. I am not as upset about the look of the Klingons, as there are supposed to be 24 different houses, presumably with some unique development in different areas. I worry that this one episode may not persuade enough regular TV viewers to invest in watching the streaming series. Our old TV won't be able to show the streaming series I fear. Discovery looks interesting but if it doesn't attract enough viewers, will it be cancelled? Probably not, but time will tell....

  13. Was just on Facebook and there seems to be a lot of pushback about the way the Discovery Klingons look. Some acknowledge that there has been variety in Klingon looks and others seem to feel this is pushing the envelope too far. At Star Trek Las Vegas sessions, it was stated that there are, or were in this time period, 24 different Klingon houses, each, it's inferred, each a different look. There seems to be pushback over whether covering this time period is a good idea, or whether they should have gone into the future, past TNG, DS9 etc.
