I am not happy that for the first time, US viewers have to pay for a televised version of Star Trek, ,while the rest of the world gets to see it on at least some platform for free! Not sure if I will be watching beyond the first free episode. And I LOVE Star Trek!

A total money grab by CBS, pure and simple. CBS will be profiting hand over fist. 

However, imo, there may be silver linings. CBS has claimed Discovery is already paid for, mostly from the International Netflix deal, it is already a financial success. So long as Netflix is happy with Discovery they will likely continue pumping cash into CBS's coffers for the continued production of Star Trek - a very good thing for the future of Trek imo. 

So while our needing to pay does suck I take comfort in the possibility of all this leading to even more new Star Trek being produced.  

Am I only dreaming? Nick Myers hints of developing new secret Trek project. This deal is already opening doors for new Trek productions so $6 bucks a month seems a small price to pay towards a future filled with new Trek.
