CBS All Access Sets Record for Sign-Ups Thanks to 'Star Trek: Discovery'

25 September 2017

Like many, I have been anticipating the release of the new Star Trek series Discovery.

CBS All Access West Coast subscribers will have the opportunity to watch the premiere simultaneously to its East Coast broadcast premiere, which is expected to be around 8:30 p.m. Not just that, but Star Trek: Discovery is also taking a perhaps more "realistic" approach to its story and characters, grounding them in a way that aligns the series with 2017 Peak TV practices while also adhering - so far, anyway - to classic Trek tropes and themes.

The colorful LED lights were attached to spaceship, which was said to be roughly 50 feet in length and assisted by a Black Hawk helicopter.

Tottenham Hotspur not aiming for revenge against West Ham, says Mauricio Pochettino
Tottenham fell flat last weekend against Swansea , failing to pick up a win at their new temporary home Wembley. We were on a great run and it was a hard game for us. "It's because they are human, the players are human".

Star Trek had depicted Klingons as largely unconcerned with their fallen until The Next Generation Season 1 episode "The Heart of Glory", which introduced the concept of Sto-vo-kor, the afterlife for the honored dead, guarded by the mytho-historical figure Kahless the Unforgettable.

Despite being outfitted with some interesting wrinkles, "Star Trek: Discovery" is an unspectacular addition to the existing fleet of "Trek"-branded series". This is a crew, and bridge, where Burnham is introduced to us by literally shoving another member of the crew off their own station, and most of the people we get to see speak seem to have some level of distaste for whoever they're talking to. On the other, it makes ideal sense to talk about them together: I can't think of another time when a new TV show has launched and, after less than an hour, asked viewers to pay for a streaming service they probably don't want in order to continue.

The first casualty of the series was Lieutenant Connors.

Jeremy Corbyn avoids awkward Brexit debate
He set out his plans to use his grassroots support to change the Labour Party and become Prime Minster. I'm glad this has been recognised.

Both Discovery and Star Trek 2009 showed children growing up and learning on Vulcan, and doing so the same way: in little pods. "I thought it was a nice sort of nod to the fans and to the continuity of the original series". You've also got the After Trek aftershow in there, which we're all about just because we at CarterMatt are big fans of its host in Matt Mira from his time on the Nerdist Podcast. Long gone are the invisible barriers and rudimentary zaps of the saga's original forcefield design. Burnham is First Officer on the Shenzhou and is a human who had a Vulcan upbringing, thanks to the Vulcan Sarek.

On one hand, it's a bit unfair that Discovery is inextricably linked to All Access. "You're always looking for those continuity glitches", Bormanis explained, "but who's to say that they didn't have other styles of transporters on other kinds of starships back then?"

Eagles, Giants stand united during anthem
Goodson and right tackle Bobby Hart are going to miss the New York Giants game Sunday against the Eagles in Philadelphia . Wendell Smallwood led the backfield in yards with 71, but LeGarrette Blount looked slightly more impressive with 67.
