CBS officially unveiled the first STAR TREK: DISCOVERY photo early Wednesday morning. The image depicts Michelle Yeoh as Captain Philippa Georgiou and Sonequa Martin-Green as First Officer Michael Burnham on an dry desert-like alien planet.
Burnham appears to have what looks like a tricorder, reminiscent of technology seen in Star Trek: The Original Series, on her belt. This would make sense, as Discovery is set a decade before the adventures of Kirk, Spock, McCoy and the crew of the Enterprise.

Looks as about as interesting as the almighty snoozefest, Enterprise.
I, for one, am sick and tired of all the franchise companies going BACKWARDS with storylines, instead of FORWARDS!!!!
Both STNG and Voyager had a LOT of excellent stories and plots that could be broken off into it’s own series.
I’m sick of all these franchises going backwards, and backwards, and backwards, again and again and again. It’s nauseating and a kick in the crotch to fans who expect more than rehashed old ST stuff.
I’ve seen more fan made movies and stories that are so much more interesting and could be taken a lot farther than what they have done with what they had……but yet, the production companies and franchise owners keep throwing fans back into the cess pits of the dark ages of “before”.
As far as this fan is concerned, you’ve lost my interest. Until you come up with something completely NEW and unrelated to all of the previous ST versions, as well as have it FORWARD and not BACKWARD, I won’t be watching.
