    Well now, look at that Smile
    Disorganized thoughts of mine...You have my interest, but this trailer just re-enforces how badly Sonequa Martin-Green overacts! She comes across as self righteous. She's my least favorite character...and she's the main character! It hurts, and I'm not sure that I like Grizzly Spock either, but I'm open to seeing what he brings to the table. I'm hopeful! A lot looks good, and Pike seems awesome, so I'm looking forward to season 2!

    I'm happy they're going back to the original klingon ship designs, While the older ones grew on me I still couldn't help but wonder they were thinking, though I just chocked it up to Fuller since he has a tendency to take "liberties," with source material. I wonder how they'll explain the shift in design.

    HYPEEEEEEEE TRAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    That looks so good.

    Pike looks like he'll be a real badass captain, the Klingons seem to have been adjusted slightly, or maybe some storyline will explain things better about their looks.

    D7 CRUISER!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Some sort of guardian angel entity? Hmm.....no ideas on that one.

    I'm so excited now.

    This looks quite impressive and it seems to suggest that they've clued in and started to address a lot of the criticisms that got levelled at the first series. I'm hoping that by adding Pike into the mix and fleshing him out that they'll shift more of the focus off Burnham and towards the ensemble cast going forward.

    With the mirror Georgiou reappearing, there's a chance yet that they may well bring Prime Lorca back at some point in the future, though I'd be surprised if they did it during this season.

    Looking forward to it. I really enjoyed s1 and tried not to compare it with any other series. Judging from the trailer, we are likely going to see again a high level production. I am also positive for the new cast entries.

    Look man, I'm pretty forgiving, but Spock + beard = unacceptable. I fully expect him to shave it off relatively quickly and I'll watch the season because "Star Trek", but I really don't care anymore. Since my CBS Access is free (yay friend), then all I may lose is time unless Season 2 is patently awesome. Like Federation ideals, I'll keep an open mind and accept what I see, yet I must ground myself to my currently reality.

    I've got to say I think this looks great. Season 1 had more than its fair share of shaky moments but it sold me in the end. I think the actings been great, particularly SMG and Mary Wiseman, and it looks like they're taking on board a lot of the feedback levelled at it: There's a Canon accurate D7 in development, original style uniforms, and they've thrown so much hair and beard at the klingons they've got some on spock by accident!
    I'm keeping faith they've got their act together for this one.
    And let's be honest, which star trek series did have a really good first season?

    Absolutely!

    EVERY series of Trek has been seriously wonky in the first season (or two in some cases!) so i think it was wise to give it a chance. This looks like a big step up from S1 where they were trying to find their footing and it also looks like they listened to some feedback from fans and viewers too, which is great i think.
