Teaser for the new series is up.
Nick Meyer on the writing staff.
Prime Universe.
Ralph Mcquarrie 70's ship design.
Can't place the music but so far so good imo. Series looks to be a homerun... for me at least.

Lordy, that is some awful CGI.

Music in the trailer is by Fil Eisler, but I don't know if that's a sign he will have anything to do with the series.

I imagine Fuller will continue his collaboration with Brian Reitzell, whom he's worked with on Hannibal and American Gods. But who knows.

I'd be thrilled if they brought McCreary in. He's currently working on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Outlander, The Walking Dead, and Black Sails, but with Black Sails ending that'll be off his plate by the end of the year, leaving him the unbusiest he's been in a while (except for raising a child and scoring movies and video games and whatnot).

The points you mention, and Bryan Fuller being the showrunner, have all given me hope and excitement for this new series, but that teaser did absolutely nothing for me. If anything, it dampened my enthusiasm a little. It looked like a cheap video game, and while I am confident finished effects in a series will be better, I was hoping to finally break away from the huge prequel perspective that was such a bane for Enterprise to overcome and that it appears is where this will be occurring within the timeline.

Enterprise had so much promise. I loved the idea behind it. Right Stuff meets Star Trek. But then we ended up with silly NG type scripts with a few stand outs in the mix.

To me, "Enterprise" had a good enough premise, but lacked the focus to make anything of it. Very quickly, we saw the same stories we'd seen in four previous series, except they kept telling us this was the first time it had happened.

There's every reason to fear but no reason to believe that this new series will fall into the same trap. It is absolutely going to be difficult to come up with fresh takes on a premise that has already had more than 700 episodes and more than a dozen movies, where fans believe they know what makes something "true" Star Trek somehow, but if they concentrate on character interactions, they'll be going in the right direction (for me).

Stupid name. Stupid ship design.

The only hope this thing has is Meyer.

If I could have the show follow one order - it would be to ignore fans. Somewhat of a logical contradiction I know - "Guys, please ignore fans. Except me. Thanks."

Also, thanks James for the composer heads up.

I'm sure Brian Tyler's too busy but I'd love to see him return to the tv franchise.

I'm really looking forward to this show. The Abrams/Linn movies have been okay, but they don't really feel like Star Trek to me.

And you know... this thing won't even be in production for two more months, and it will not air for at least six. This video (and the earlier teaser) are basically concept pieces that might not resemble what's in the actual show at all. I happen to know that the VFX crew is still not entirely assembled and they are still interviewing people.

If they show something like this around Thanksgiving, then it's time to think that the VFX on the show will look junky. For now, it's just the best they could do in time for ComicCon.

I think what you meant to write was "My six-month-old sister and her brain-damaged cat could do better effects than that! I'm going to laugh so hard when this thing fails! Gene Roddenberry is rolling over in his grave!"

Ignore. The. Fans.

Ignore the people who laid the foundation for decades so a new series could be nervously accepted after two shitty ones and a shitcrap film. Yeah, who do they think they are? It's not like they're the fans. Oh ..... wait.


Oh my goodness that music was terrible.

You know what, I like the ship. Obviously inspired by Ralph McQuarrie's concept art.

It has a 70s vibe to it that makes a refreshing difference to all the streamlined designs we've been used to. With a little more refinement to the cgi model (which is sure to come), this might become a well-loved vessel with real character. I like the colouring too...

Premiere January 2017. I'm cautiously optimistic we'll get our real prime universe Trek back again.

According to TrekMovie.com the trailer music was made quickly as part of an audition:

Oh, and the article does point out that nothing in the trailer is final.

So, they threw something together with a demo cue and what we saw has the potential to not even be the final project? Somebody should be fired and the person over that guy embarrassed.

What crime has been committed here?

"The fans" don't speak in one voice, though individual fans believe that they speak for all fans. A producer's job is to make a show he believes people will want to see because he would want to see it. There is never a shortage of people claiming to know -- through research or experience -- what "the fans" want, and if they were right more often, there would be more hits. All of the best shows come from people passionate about a story they want to tell who believe that other people will feel likewise.

Jeff Bond was not advocating they say "To hell with the fans." But neither should posts on internet forums be confused with what "the fans" demand.

Promotion is becoming a "24/7" thing just like 24/7 news. It doesn't matter if they have anything substantial or real to say, as long as they continually feed the fanatics with something. And the fanatics eat it up. Lots of blame to go around.
