Goofs

With Michael being the adoptive sister of Spock, the series have many flashbacks to their childhood and upbringing on Vulcan. Spock's Vulcan half-brother, Sybok, does not appear nor is mention during these scenes. In Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, Spock says that he and Sybok grew up together. However, since it's never stated when Sybok joined Sarek's home - only that he did so following his mother's death - or when he was exiled from the family, it's not impossible Sybok moved in after Burnham, and left before she graduated (the two extremes of the flashbacks). Also, since Sybok was never mentioned before Star Trek V, it seems reasonable the family never spoke of him again after his estrangement. See more »

Sigh...you did it wrong...again
25 September 2017 | by Deakon75See all my reviews

Just my opinion, You can't say this is in the same universe as Enterprise, ToS, etc... if you are going to re-write the history of said universe, and expect the millions of existing fans to just sit here and take it.

What I haven't understood, since Enterprise; is with all of our CGI, filming and other technological advancements, that can make a fantastic Sci-Fi show of any sort...Why go and make a prequel, that just makes everything that was supposed to have taken place years after this show, look horrible and confusing in the progressive universe? Make a sequel! Not another Enterprise. But, something that takes place 50, 100 or 500 years after these events, so that the CGI and awesome things that take place in the ST universe make sense. You need to come up with some original and creative stories. Stop re-hashing the past, and modified an already written history to fit your unoriginal story telling.

My thought in the first 2 episodes...That's all I am going to watch, you butchered everything that we have already absorbed and accepted as cannon. There is nothing you can do with this show now to redeem it. Expect maybe preemptively cancel it, listen to the fans of old and new, then go back to the idea room, and come up with something that fits properly in the Star Trek Universe. Or Just leave Star Trek alone, and make the show you wanted to, but were to scared to make because it was so weak, you threw the Star Trek name on it, and used some words Trekkies are familiar with to try to suck us in.

Again, just my thoughts after watching.
