    we only have to suffer through one more episode (just watched episode 8 and they said episode 9 is the finale) hopefully it won't get renewed for a second season.

    Wave Man, the term "wave man" is the English translation of 'Ronin' (Japanese word) and literately translates to "wandering person" and in a modern context a WaveMan is one who is socially adrift or a SalaryMan who is between employers.

This would have generated interest and those who'd guessed Khan would have felt vindicated. Now, it's Burnham is the First Officer. Nope, she's a former First Officer and rankless convicted mutineer 7 episodes into an 8-episode mini-season. CBS in general, and Les Moonvess in particular, have nothing but contempt for viewers, new or old. Discovery is moderately watchable generis "sci-fi", but it is most assuredly NOT Star Trek as it is.
    Cumberbatch is the in TV series? As Paramount has done the movies since the split.

    Actually, this is just the fall finale. It will be back in the spring with I think another 6 episodes. And itís been greenlit for a 2nd Season (mich like Orville)

    thanks for the correction mate, and yes I do remember them saying 'fall season finale' now that you mention it. I honestly don't know how they could greenlight a second season, I don't know (or have seen) any Trek fan that likes it. There must be a fan base (and we aren't doing it any favors by watching it as ratings/viewership numbers is what drives renewal decisions) watching it.

    Actually, the Discovery series is produced under the Bad Robot licence, so technically it's an offshoot of the movies. But yeah, the whole post-Viacom disintegration has completely screwed up the Star Trek rights, so while Disco runs on CBS's pay network, it's run by the movie people, which is why it doesn't care about continuity and looks like JJ Dreck. Star Trek is no longer anything but a corporate branding. Trek est mort, vive l'Orville.

    Huh? The latest series of Trek movies were under a license from CBS to Paramount as CBS has the copyrights to Star Trek (Paramount only holding copyrights to the films). Since, CBS was not intending to do another Trek series any time soon they seem to have agreed in that licensing agreement to not produce a series until January of 2017. Only Alex Kurtzman, co-writer of the films Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness, came over to executive produce. CBS Studios seem to be running the show, not Bad Robot or Paramount. CBS's pay channel is Showtime.

    It's been renewed. I just consider it and Alt-verse and roll it from there
    A brave little theory, and actually quite coherent for a system of five or seven dimensions -- if only we lived in one.

    I don't get why you call it 'Star Trek' and don't make it look like its an artefact of the 60s.

    I was trepidacious about the series, and I feel rightfully so having watched it...
