The hull number on Discovery seems to predate that of Enterprise on TOS by a significant timespan.  Discovery's designation is NCC-1031.  The Enterprise's hull number is NCC-1701.  So it seems that this ship may be from at least a generation before that of the TOS.

What gets me about this series?  It's reportedly going to be available on Netflix (which I have), but *NOT* in the United States or Canada.  And I really don't want to sign up for another streaming video service.  I feel like I'm being nickle and dimed to death as it is!

The aft section of the ship looks... Klingon!

I've not read up on Discovery so I'm not sure where in the timeline this stands, but if it's after the Klingon/Federation peace treaty, it might make sense for them to collaborate the best of both's technologies when producing a starship.  I think the saucer section seems a little small, but I'm interested in learning more about the show now.  I half expected to see the Starfleet and Klingon sigils combined on that ship.  And the music makes this seem a more militaristic themed show.

Voyager was eh.  I'm a Defiant guy myself.  The Enterprise E was interesting too, and had that DS9 Dominion War vibe to it.  I agree this has a Klingon look to it.

USS Discovery First Look.

Ugly. What was the last decent looking ship? Voyager?

Anyone see Beyond? I'm on the fence and my roommate says it's alright but isn't worth seeing.

My wife and I saw it Thursday night and we both loved it.

Keep in mind that while I have been a fan of Star Trek since I was a kid, I am by no means a Star Trek "purist" - I loved the 2009 reboot movie and I enjoyed Into Darkness but thought it could have been better.

I felt Beyond was the best of the reboot cast movies so far, a fun thrill ride, with a pretty interesting plot and an interesting twist at the end that if you're paying attention, you'll see clues for well before it's revealed in the movie.

I would recommend going to see it.

I haven't had a chance to read all the details yet, but it sounds like MattyCollector is getting shut down at the end of the year, with the MOTU figures shifting to Super7. The Thundercats line appears to be cancelled, although the four or so planned out for 2016 will come out. Big changes in store for those lines. Honestly I haven't bought any He-Man figures recently, and was pretty happy with my collection. I sort of wanted the Filmation He-Man, but missed out so I just moved on.
