    Yeah I'm not a fan. They remind me of one of the background aliens from either ST VI or IV, I can't remember which one but I can see him in my head!

    Are they at least still brown? It's the last refuge of the black face actor

    They seem to be, although there have been plenty of white Klingons in the past.

    Good.

    A race of Metallica roadies never quite did it for me. Still, better than a bunch of Turks in green tabards.

    So are we hoping for more 'edgy trek' with added sex scenes in keeping with contemporary television. Or, do we want a more wholesome / intellectual affair?

    After seeing 'Arrival' last year I really hope that ST:D follows that type of example. Trek has to be a bastion for reason, hope and wonder.

    I think in these troubling times people need something to lift their spirits. But yeah, more in the sense of Arrival rather than Voyager'

    I share your love of intelligent understated scifi but I feel it would be prudent to kill that hope stone dead right now, with a claw hammer. This is Star Trek. It's going to be surface-level morality-heavy fluff, probably.

    Yeah I'd love something akin to Arrival or Interstellar. Smart sci-fi that deals with big issues etc. No reason it can't be, I wouldn't call Trek "surface level morality" myself. It's tame by today's standards, sure, but it's got to be judged against whatever else was on at the time.

    Trek is all about holding up a mirror and telling us it's a future window. Stick to that format and I'm happy.

    An optimistic future specifically.

    Yeah, Black Mirror is depressing enough.

    Does this mean he won;t be in season two of the mental happy dancing show? Shame.

    Anyway, great casting. All of the cast are good so far, most positive thing about the whole thing.

    Just got to Enterprise Season 3 - oh err, it's a bit different and in a good way! Driven, ruthless, Archer et al I like. Even Vulcan T'Pol is in on the necessity of their mission.

    I wasn't a massive fan of it. It was better than much of what came before I guess. I remember season 4 being better though.

    I'm planning on rewatching it all at some point though. I was never really into Enterprise, so my memories of most of the show is pretty 'meh'.

    The final series of Enterprise was by far the best.

    I can't seem to make up my mind about Season 4. Sometimes I've gone through it and thought it was a bit shit, then I have rewatched it and thought it was decent. One thing I am certain of though is that it isn't nearly as good as season 3.
