"While Discovery is fundamentally quite different from much of the Trek that's come before, its engagement with the franchise, and willingness to both celebrate and examine its core values, keep it true to that spirit".
Well, there's definitely a big ol' bag of mixed opinions going on over last night's Star Trek: Discovery premiere, but one thing's for sure: According to TVLine, Discovery pulled in 9.6 million viewers, which is an awesome debut! Internally, CBS expects that number to rise as 7-day delayed viewing is taken into account.
What would become "Star Trek: Discovery" was initially announced on November 2, 2015 with a premiere set for January 2017.
New episodes of Star Trek: Discovery stream Sundays at 8:30/7:30c exclusively on CBS All Access. First Officer Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) encounters new ships, worlds, and villains as the threat of war looms.
The series also stars James Frain, Rainn Wilson, Doug Jones, Anthony Rapp, Chris Obi, Mary Chieffo, Terry Serpico, Maulik Pancholy, Sam Vartholomeos, Rekha Sharma, Kenneth Mitchell, Clare McConnell, and Damon Runyan.
With that said, all the other shows Netflix releases globally, including Riverdale and The Good Place, eventually end up on Netflix. The action will centre around the ships USS Shenzhou and the USS Discovery, captained by Philippa Georgiou (Michelle Yeoh) and Gabriel Lorca (Jason Isaacs) respectively but the actual protagonist is Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green).
To mark the show's Sunday premiere, CBS launched a re-creation of the show's new spacecraft into the skies over New York Saturday night.

Despite being outfitted with some interesting wrinkles, "Star Trek: Discovery" is an unspectacular addition to the existing fleet of "Trek"-branded series".
"Despite the concessions to modern TV storytelling and effects, Discovery feels like a Star Trek show - at times one with the potential to be quite good".
Executive producer Alex Kurtzman said initial discussions among producers focused on bringing "something new to "Trek" that both fans and people who'd never seen the show before could experience".
Star Trek, one of the most iconic and influential global television franchises, returns to television 50 years after it first premiered. "They clearly have people who know what we lovingly call technobabble, people who know phase inducers and shield frequencies and all the rest of the terminology that was established specifically for the Star Trek Universe".
When she jets in to investigate, she's attacked by a Klingon - an isolationist warrior race Starfleet have not been in contact with for more than 100 years. No, the first two installments of the show very much feel like a prologue to the bigger series, but also an important one that sets up Burnham's bigger arc.
The first scenes of Star Trek: Discovery were jaw-dropping, not just for the cinematic production, but the two women of color filling up the screen.
