More heart than humour. Nothing wrong with that, if you find that sort of thing to be entertaining. Perhaps it's because we're talking about the creator of Family Guy, American Dad and A Million Ways to Die in the West. Maybe that set my funny bone's expectations too high but the guy is indeed hilarious and I suppose that was the standard I was hoping for. In any case, this comes off more as pure homage to Star Trek with a little sprinkling of humour here and there. I gave it a chance with three episodes. I'll give it another chance with the fourth episode but if that doesn't tickle me pink, well, this series will be off my list.

Don't be fooled by the trailer, this is not a comedy show. Sure, it's a little off-beat and more reminiscent of Firefly than Star Trek. It doesn't reinvent anything though and rather uses a lot of things present in similar shows. The crew is interesting and so are their missions. The images are quite breath-taking and of course the story has new elements to it, but it is the same "righteous" and "just" series with a health dose of self-reflection. But two cliches do stand out: cocky alien males, and very mechanical and condescending androids, What they really did wrong though was mess with time-travel for more than an episode. It has been nearly every show's downfall and this is no exception. Season 2 is as far as I recommend going unless they pull a rabbit out of their hat and completely stop messing with time.

100% Star Trek with retards. Sure, it's too dumb to make it for a license into the franchise. The good part, it makes the Kirk 60s show shine, even the acting in the old series is better. And the special effects would look great compared with Next Generation's first season. But not noticeable better than the later seasons.

Amazing to see a couple of low reviews here. THIS SHOW IS STAR TREK. This show has heart and especially HOPE and WONDER; like actual Star Trek, not the new dystopian, hopeless, bleak, ideologically-skewed "Star Trek" shows now, which are filled with propaganda and gaslightng. And Episode 9 of Season 2 was one of the most amazing space battles I've ever laid eyes upon on screen, TV AND movies. Amazing. Not many shows today make you feel good, normal, hopeful—this one does.
