After the numerous delays, production woes and casting troubles, Star Trek: Discovery finally has a trailer, and yes, it looks amazing to me. Lots are already divided, but let me say, that most of the hate is coming from those who are too close-minded to understand what the original series had to offer. Though there’s a bit too much lens flare, and this looks to understandably capitalize a bit from Abrams’ more upbeat tone, there’s nothing in here that tells me the writing can’t be a return to form. I’m not too much of a traditionalist, and I think, especially for a franchise like this, reinvention and change is not only inevitable, but necessary. For now, I see a show with lots of promise, headlined by two women of color, a cool new alien brought to life by Doug Jones, and a spirit of adventure.

I’m ready for this!
