    @Valheru I doubt you will, its a netflix created and owned product and they don't like to share

    Pity, we haven't had anything new since Enterprise. Which I enjoyed. ( <-- The internet will hate me for that comment)

    Definitely something different for the Trekkie universe. Acting and story 6-7/10. FX 10/10.

    Re: Star Trek: Discovery

    Definitely enjoying it so far. As some have said, acting and shit can be meh and a bit overdone (so just like usual Star Trek? XD) but the FX are amazing and the story it is telling is pretty cool. Klingon Cold War

    Indeed. Something I've always wanted to see explored is the Klingon Cold War and how the Federations dealt with the Klingons.

    Not created or owned by Netflix. It is a CBS production, and Netflix was given the licensing rights outside of America and Canada. Hence Netflix can say "Netflix Original"

    And Netflix not sharing, we will need to see once the show has actually run till the end of the season, we obviously don't know what licensing has been done between them and other parties.
    Though I don't think they are particularly happy with Multichoice or Sony in SA, considering how they had such a strong grip on content in SA, especially content Sony licensed from Netflix (reducing their initial offering in SA).

    As for the show. I am enjoying it. Would make more sense to me currently if they said it takes place in the Kelvin universe, given the designs, Klingons, film style, technology. But we will see how it ties into the Prime Universe.

    Re: Star Trek: Discovery

    I love star trek, but this show just left a bad taste in my mouth. I made it through the first episode and then tried the second, turned it off half way through. Story feels flat, dialogue was terrible, and the entire klingon dialogue was just so painful on the ears. So yeah won't be watching this thing any longer.
