    And who is it controlling the Andorians and Orions I suspect given that it was a trading town that we may be looking at some form of evolved Ferengi? But why hide them behind drones might be to may make you think towards the obvious when its indeed someone else.

    I find The Burn to be rather curious, whoever or whatever did it pretty much crippled the Galaxy, depleting a valuable resource and bringing interstellar travel to a near halt, kinda makes things easy for conquest? I'm curious about the other Galactic Powers as well, such as the Dominion, Borg etc.

    Wasn't a bad first episode. But I just hope they don't take another 2 episodes to find out where Discovery is and begin covering ground on what exactly happend with Federation and status of current galactic powers.

    Interested to see what's on next, not a bad first episode. I think I also prefer Michael Burnham's character high 24x7.

    All things have to end and I suppose that includes the dominant presence that was the federation in the galaxy. Am I happy about it? Absolutely not, but I can see why the writers chose to write it the way they did. I suppose they didn't think there would be much of a story for Season 3 if we were into the 3100s(?) with the federation seemingly have made even more advances in technology and becoming almost omnipotent.

    We'll see about Book, I'm not too sure on his character yet, I still would appreciate a new classic Trek show set in a federation starship but nonetheless I'll grumble and continue to watch Star Trek: Discovery to kill an hour of my week, every week.

    I liked the cat, the cat was cool. That is essentially it.

    Well there have been four sense I like a lot but got disapointed:

    1.) When she crashed into Books ship but survived
    2.) When she crashed on the planet but survived
    3.) When she was eaten but survived
    4.) When she was drugged and was the first time in three years enjoyable.

    That all Dilithium blow up is an interesting story, it will be interesting what "story" they are going to come up that will explain what happened.

    Activating heat shields and then ordering a full system reboot is the stupidest thing I've heard in a long time.
    Burnham on drugs was really funny and it looked like she was having so much fun with it.
    Whoever decided that the make up on the Andorians was good enough needs to have a word with themselves.
    There was a Morn in the hunting group!
    Putting the fate of the federation on the shoulders of the first person that came walking through the door claiming to be a starfleet officer shows that the guy in the federation office is incredibly naive.

    Overall, I liked the episode and I'm looking forward to seeing what Discovery's story is as well as the other couple of federation ships that were mentioned to be flying around the sectors. I did get a bit of an Andromeda vibe from the apparent plot so I hope that they steer clear of rehashing that.

    Well I quite enjoyed that - this is probably what Discovery should have been from the start, away from the established canon and standing now on its own 2 feet. If anything, this seems to be something of a soft reboot for the series and in much the same way as TNG & DS9 didn't properly hit the mark until their 3rd seasons, has Discovery now landed their shot? It's a promising start on the back of that episode and a lot of set up to be explained.

    So, my initial thoughts:

    At the moment it seems safe to assume that the alongside the Federation, the Dominion and the various other galactic powers are just as crippled - given that no-one seems to have come along and conquered everything, Book's brief mention of fuel issues, that alternatives to warp drive are limited by their own issues and the implication that the subspace network is severely reduced, everyone must be in the same boat.

    The wrecked Starfleet vessels show that design has evolved but remained similar to the original aesthetics, though it's hard to get a scale of the ships. Speaking of them - are the 2 Federation ships picked up by the station remnants of Starfleet or surviving vessels subsequently commandeered by parties unknown? And why do none of them visit the station? Sahil says he's been there for 40 years and his father was in the fleet, so someone, somewhere must know he's there.

    Are there pockets of the Federation that still survive out there and hold onto their ideals? It's implied that almost the entire fleet was lost and whatever vessels that have survived or been subsequently built, coupled with the fuel crisis, there simply isn't enough of them to make any difference and they can't be everywhere at once, so it's essential travel and missions only.

    Booker mentions the nearest natural wormhole being about 100 light years away - is this another nod to Bajor or have additional ones been discovered since?

    I wasn't sure what to expect for this seasons opener. It was alright, as others have stated, I hope it doesn't take several more episodes before Burnham reconnects with Discovery. I also had hoped Discovery or the next Trek series (before Discovery started) would have been set further into the future from the start rather then where Discovery started. But now they get to take off and hopefully create something great going forward.

    The part at the end with the one last (that we know of) unofficial Starfleet guy was the best part of the episode for me.

    I really liked it! The effects were great, and all that future tech is really cool. The scene where they hit Burnham with that gas had me cracking up! Also, the final scene with Sahil was really emotional as well, props to the actor as you could see the emotion on his face when he finally got that commission.

    Overall I'm liking this season so far, I hope to see more of this new universe and learn more about The Burn and the collapse of the Federation. I'm also hoping we see the rest of the Discovery crew sooner rather than later.

    A little addition - the new title sequence has been shown off by CBS and it's kinda cool. It shows the older style hand phaser transitioning into a new design and it also has the Starfleet delta morphing into the new badge giving probably the clearest look at it to date.

    This is a "clean" version of the titles as it doesn't contain any cast or crew names. The theme appears unchanged and the new logo appears at the end.

    EDIT: They pulled it already to non-US folks, try this link instead - https://youtu.be/edHfsHcSLMc or this one https://intl.startrek.com/videos/sta...ive=All&page=1
