I wasn't very impressed with the first episode. I considered the opening of episode one to be of the most unimpressive of any Trek series, to be honest.

Would I watch it if it continues to air on conventional TV a week after the online version? Maybe. Would I subscribe to the online site for it? Not a chance.

I'm a huge sci-fi fan and I can summarize the episode in one word: MEH.

According to several reviews, the first two episodes serve as the pilot for the series and are of a different tone and pace than the rest of the series. They serve as a prequel for Michael Burnham. The main plot picks up in episode three.

I thought the first two episodes set up an interesting background. I'm holding back judgement until seeing a few more episodes.

I liked it. None of the first episodes of any ST series were mind-blowing. So it always takes awhile to get warmed up.

Many folks were not impressed with the first (half) episode they saw as witnessed by countless comments written about it, mostly negative in numerous articles seen online.

They probably should have broadcast both episodes 1 and 2 if they wanted to get people interested enough to watch it online. I think episode 1 was definitely the worst of the two.

I am disappointed Michelle Yeoh will no longer be the lead female in this show (for spoiler reasons). She would've been the only reason for me to consider watching it. Though I am a big fan of the Doug Jones (Lt. Saru).

For those who have postponed making a decision to buy, commercial laden or none, a CBS All-Access subscription to watch "Star Trek: Discovery," there is a deal on ThinkGeek: a code emailed to you for a $25 credit plus a limited edition pin of the USS Shenzhou NCC-1227. Looks cool for $30 total.

Though the design is based on prior series' versions, the "Star Trek: Discovery" Starfleet Command logo's coloring certainly seems to evoke another agency's insignia...

CBS All Access Renews 'Star Trek: Discovery' for Second Season

CBS All Access, the CBS Television Network's digital subscription video on-demand and live streaming service, announced today the second season renewal of its hit original series "Star Trek: Discovery."

"In just six episodes, 'Star Trek: Discovery' has driven subscriber growth, critical acclaim and huge global fan interest for the first premium version of this great franchise," said Marc DeBevoise, President and Chief Operating Officer, CBS Interactive. "This series has a remarkable creative team and cast who have demonstrated their ability to carry on the 'Star Trek' legacy. We are extremely proud of what they've accomplished and are thrilled to be bringing fans a second season of this tremendous series."

The launch of "Star Trek: Discovery" on CBS All Access broke a new record for subscriber sign-ups in a single day, week and month for the service.

The first six episodes of "Star Trek: Discovery" are currently available to stream on CBS All Access. All new episodes are available on demand weekly after 8:30 PM, ET on Sundays exclusively for CBS All Access subscribers in the U.S. As previously announced, "Star Trek: Discovery" will air in two chapters. The final episode of chapter one will debut on Sunday, Nov. 12, and the second chapter, featuring the remaining six episodes, will return in January 2018.

"Star Trek: Discovery" follows the voyages of Starfleet on their missions to discover new worlds and new life forms, and one Starfleet officer who must learn that to truly understand all things alien, you must first understand yourself. The series will feature a new ship and new characters, while embracing the same ideology and hope for the future that inspired a generation of dreamers and doers.

"Star Trek: Discovery's" cast includes Sonequa Martin-Green, Doug Jones, Jason Isaacs, Anthony Rapp, Michelle Yeoh, Shazad Latif, Mary Wiseman, Mary Chieffo, James Frain and more.

"Star Trek: Discovery" is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Secret Hideout, Living Dead Guy Productions and Roddenberry Entertainment. Alex Kurtzman, Bryan Fuller, Heather Kadin, Gretchen J. Berg and Aaron Harberts, Akiva Goldsman, Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth serve as executive producers.
