This phaser looks right.
+++++++++++

If this is set in-between the two TOS pilots, then no. And it should probably be a laser. Maybe not.

And this communicator looks right.

See above. Also, the hole pattern in the lid brings the TWOK communicator to mind, more than "The Cage".


Don't blame ya for grasping at straws, though.

I really wish they had decided to follow the lead of "Star Trek Continues"! This is a non profit fan series that many fans of TOS love, has won lots of awards and really nails the timeline, the look, the feel, the soul of the original. 
If the CBS execs were smart, they'd have hired these people as showrunners!
There is nothing in the trailer for Discovery that really invoked Star Trek to me, just lots of CGI , battle scenes and what seems like a dark, depressing storyline. I guess as some others have said, they had to justify the CGI budget.

Of course they would. The Borg will show up at some point as well.  You know, because.

Well that did not take long for the writers to go for "iconic Star Trek elements".

>Of course they would. The Borg will show up at some point as well.  You know, because.

Yep, and why not Ferengi and Cardassians as well, with updated looks of course to reflect a more "mature" Star Trek.
Well might as well throw up Khan too. The Discover crew came across the Botany Bay before Kirk and the crew did.
There were actually a hundred more genetic supermen but they got taken out by the time the Discovery crew put Khan back in stasis, after erasing his memories of course.

I actually read somewhere that when Paramount/Bad Robot mentioned Prime that they did not mean the original Star Trek timeline, but rather a new timeline designated "Prime".
Basically they wanted to sucker people in watching this by making it sounds as if it takes place in the TOS/TNG/DSN/VGR universe.

Anyway, what is the point of all these reboots and prequels which producers and writers claim they need to tell new stories when they quickly change their tune a 180 degrees and go back to the tried and familiar.

Ugh but I and probably others have said that many times already.
I honestly wish to quit with Star Trek on the television screen and theater screen as it is clear that my fan interest in it is dead.
I don't even want to read any of the new articles on it or talk with other people on IM about it any more.

Worse, it's the tried and familiar dressed up with fancy effects, textured costumes, and 'badass cool' characters.

The pig is getting really tired of all this lipstick.
