From what I've seen, which is again...very limited.
If you enjoyed the reboot of Battlestar, you'll like this.

I loved nuBSG. I mean, obviously, given the name, right?

Did I know that about you?
I don't know...this might be the first time I'm coming across that information.



But yeah, my experience of the Trek universe is that it's largely an optimistic place, and this show is missing that wave of positivism.
Things are darker, and there's more moral ambiguity.
Which I don't mind?
But...which still feels jarring coming from something with Star Trek in the header.

It's okay, Worf, Martok, Gowron, B'Elanna, and K'Ehleyr all agree with you.

YOU tell him. He's pretty hung up about it.


And if you still aren't convinced, THE NUMBERS DON'T LIE.


141 and 2/3s chance that Freakzilla rips your argument to shreds while doing one-arm push-ups.

STD: lots of very angry people shouting and screaming, blowing stuff up and pointing guns at each other all the time and killing lots of people. And an F bomb. Normally, outside of Star Trek... all things that I like! But in this show? Under a Star Trek banner? Under a stupid prequel banner that no one wanted? Cancer.

Nike announces Kaepernick is their new spokesperson and a bunch of people are cutting the Nike logos off of everything.
