Holy shit, it might actually be good.
The creative plan is for the series to introduce new characters and civilizations, existing outside of the mythology charted by previous series and the current movie franchises.
Now bring on Captain Mads Mikkelsen.

Best suggestion so far is that this series should be Worf's Old West Adventures.

CBS passed on Star Trek for Lost in Space. Is this corporate guilt?

I desperately want it to be a not Star Fleet centric show. But that's probably too much to hope for.

The new Star Trek captain will be transgender and do the phasing all by xirself.

The villains will all be mormons.

Given that the show hasn't even been cast yet, I wouldn't take that video as being indicative of anything. It's really just a placeholder.

There's no reason to think the show will be good or bad.

People are overly nostalgic about Roddenberry's writing; the original series had four or five plots that kept getting recycled over and over with maybe a half dozen genuinely superior episodes. Sci-fi geeks loved the show when it originally aired, but there were not enough of them to see it through its "five year mission." The audience that slowly grew when the show went into perpetual reruns for the next twenty years grew, I think, because of the chemistry of the principle cast. The show ran so long in reruns that they felt compelled to jazz up the cheesy special effects just to keep the shows from looking too Buck Rogers.

As far as I can tell, much of the bitching, lens flare aside, over the new Star Trek movies is over casting that intentionally resembles the original cast and recycling some of the movies' plots. An entirely new cast that acted and looked nothing like TOS would have fared even worse. It's damned if you do and damned if you don't. Special effects aren't a problem for science fiction now, not even for scripted television, so it comes down to casting and writing for the TV reboot.

Yeah, it definitely has a Klingon (D-4?) look from below.

I am hoping that this design is the result of lessons from the Dominion war.

Did we really need a new Star Trek TV series and a new Star Trek movie series? I liked the original and tng, but come on.

Timewise, I am guessing between Undiscovered Country and TNG.

It's the result of lessons from the cold war, when they needed a long-range supersonic bomber. Oh, sorry, that was the XB-70 Valkyrie.

I confused the two craft for a second. :)
