First ep dropped last week.  New thread for a new season.  As always, spoilers abound so read at your own risk!

Overall, I enjoyed the first episode.

1) I liked Booker. He had a Han Solo feel to me. The
console design on his ship was original looking.

2) The Star Fleet liaison is harder to believe. Who gets
up every day for 40 years for a job he wasn't given and
where no one shows up? I thought he was some kind of
holographic image or robot.

This is when I will jump on board Discovery with an open mind. 

 I saw the first episode and it was ok.  Im looking forward to seeing THE FUTURE of Star Trek.   Hopefully I will enjoy whats to come.

Outstanding episode. Bravo. They had one job (and 18 months to do it) and they got it right. One of the best ST episodes ever. Once again: my liberal friends, my Trump-leaning (yeah they won't admit if they are actually Trump-voting) friends, and my (now) 82-year old republican die-hard ST- and JB-fan dad all absolutely loved it--especially the positive tone. If you want to come here and vomit about Mary Sues, BIPOCs and "get woke, go broke", please read "Been Away?" announcement first (we heard you the first time):   http://www.byrnerobotics.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID =56225&PN=1&totPosts=0&FID=3&PR=3

I really enjoyed seasons 1 & 2.

My season 3/episode 1 first impression is: Burnham jumped
900+ years into the Star Wars galaxy and got helped by Han
Solo and ChewbaccaCat.

I'm enjoying this because... well, the series is going where no ST show has gone before. We've seen versions of the future of the Federation in ENTERPRISE, but this post-Starfleet future is more interesting and offers some intriguing possibilities.

Consider: if dilithium is all "burned" (that is, destroyed), then the great empires--Federation, Klingon, Romulan, Cardassian, Ferengi, etc.--are all reduced to a much lower level of tech and might not have survived. Discovery might well be the ONLY ship capable of long-range travel. Hm. Think about who'd want to get their hands on that ship now...

Watched episode 2.
I have a feeling that the crew is about to be reunited with
Burnham and her baby.

I can understand why Discovery was from the outset a reboot. The writers might have decided they needed to free themselves from rules and restrictions of decades of continuity. But its unclear why they needed to time-jump. Did they feel the basic concept of Star Trek, the "naval" fleet for a space-UN, was itself too restrictive? What then is even Star Trek about?
