First episode was really good. It has that classic Star Trek feel and doesn't seem like it will be a serial series telling one big episodic story, but instead seems like it will be where each episode is a story.
Like the classic original series or Next Generation.
As the show was ending I thought, "this is the Star Trek we need right now."
Not woke, not lame, not pushing an agenda. Not trying to be dark or edgy. Just some nice classic-style stories that honor the original themes of hope and exploration.
I hope the rest of the season goes as well as the first episode. And I'm excited to see more of Capt Pike.
