    I'm already paying Comcast for tv, internet, and phone....$200 a month.
    It pisses me off that another service, in this case CBS ,which I already pay for via Comcast is charging more.

    I don't pay for television, I don't turn it on much, so I will never pay to watch a star trek series, especially since star trek series have been free to view in the past...

    Well, I'm more a fan of "The Orville".

    Star Trek is about a flag ship or almost flag ship captained by one of the best in the fleet.

    The Orville is about a mid level craft captained by "Nobody's first choice".

    He does accomplish his missions, but frequently it isn't pretty.

    Both the Orville and the new Star Trek Discovery have out done all we might expect for TV sci-fi.

    I bring this post back up for two points:

    1. The Orville, billed originally as a comedy - Is in fact mostly serious with some comic elements.
    - But I have no complaints, it's good.

    2. I was just reading Star Trek Discovery was supposed to be taking place 10 years before the original
    first Star Trek series with Captain Kirk - You soon notice this doesn't add-up; the technology, such as the
    'spore drive' would appear to be far advanced over the 'warp drive' they had in the original Star Trek series.

    Nonetheless I have no complaints about the quality and developing storyline, and can't predict where they
    will go with it; And that is a good thing - Also the quality is excellent.

    What do you think?

    I don't like the look of the Klingons, they look like Neanderthal Klingons...

    I have not viewed one episode yet though...

    The Klingons are knarley. They have evolved.

    I lost interest in discovery.

    Watched maybe 5 episodes then said F*** it, my time has value.

    Not a lot of value apparently, since I watched all the orville episodes, but at least some.

    I haven't seen Discovery but I have seen The Orville. I agree that it was more of a drama with comedy thrown in. I thought it was pretty good.
