The subscription aspect is probably more of a deterrent to me, too.  Unless CBS thinks that this show has the potential to be the centerpiece for this service.

I would certainly be interested, but I'm not going with a subscription service for one show.  I imagine there are a lot of people that think the same way.  However, lots of people are paying for Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, etc., so who knows how it will work out.

Not sure if I would do it for THIS Show, but $6 a month is pretty cheap compared to on demand/rental costs.  A new release movie off comcast is $5-6 for 24 hour rental, so getting however many episodes of Star Trek for $6 a month seems pretty fair in comparison.

Interesting.  The Star Trek franchise has taken an interesting turn from space exploration to confrontation.  I hope the story for this one is good and not just a series of look what we can blow up.  Seriously, how many times can the Enterprise get tore up before somebody loses their job permanently?

Meh - I feel like this one has the potential to be a letdown.  There was nothing in that trailer that made this a must see for me.   :-\

I think this one will under perform and they'll reduce the budget to future installments (this one has big budget, but it's less than Into Darkness), if not consider taking the film franchise in a new direction.
