    Not my cup of tea. The visuals from Discovery are not really appropriate to the time it's supposedly set, so I can't get very excited about these ships. Also, don't care for the name of the ship being on the sides of the saucer, I prefer it on the bow. Still, the workmanship appears to be good.
    Once, I was simply called Mojo. Now, I'm forced into a new name, but don't be fooled, I'm the original STO Mojo!

    This game needs detailed crafting, exploration and interaction systems.

    I had to get used to the styling of the disco...

    didn't really mind the shenzhou from the get go.

    Does the saucer spin around?

    Except it is a visual reboot. Anyone expecting a ship that looked like a low budget 1960s tv show was deluding themselves.

    Never mind that that "low budget 1960s TV show" look was validated as Canon on both DS9 (they actually inserted Sisko & Co into a actual TOS episode with the original cast, for Christ's sake...I thought it was well done, for the record) and ENT. They could have modernized it a bit but chose not to. Barring some sort of major temporal TRIBBLE-up in the future that alters the TRIBBLE Timeline into the canon prime universe...I'm sure Burnham could make a decision that epicly catastrophic...they are aiming to retcon TOS away entirely. Whatever you Millenials think, that won't bode well for the long term prospects of the franchise.

    Myth busters proved that you can polish **** and it remains ****. Just gets shinier and still smells like ****.

    We get it. You don't like DIS. Some people however do like it, oddly enough.

    The games graphical engine has managed to make the Crossfield class look even fuglier.

    How!? It looks an accurate representation to me.
    "You don't want to patrol!? You don't want to escort!? You don't want to defend the Federation's Starbases!? Then why are you flying my Starships!? If you were a Klingon you'd be killed on the spot, but lucky for you.....you WERE in Starfleet. Let's see how New Zealand Penal Colony suits you." Adm A. Necheyev.

    Very nice video, I had a good time watching it.

    It is even harder now to resist the urge to get the Crossfield for one of my scis. :)

    They reimagined the visual language of Star Trek through DIS. Inappropriate? No. Inappropriate would be to try to simulate the visuals of TOS as faithfully as possible. Why? Because TOS was an ultra-low-budget production with very cheap sets made from as-cheap-as-possible materials. DIS has a huge budget though, and audiences nowadays wouldn't "buy" TOS-style sci-fi anymore, except for the laughs at the cheap sets and the lousy costumes. We're almost in 2020, so even a sorta-pre-quel HAS to go with the times.

    DIS is meant to be enjoyable by people who didn't necessarily watch TOS beforehand.

    Yes, Star Trek TOS is the future through the lense of the 1960s. DIS is the future through the lense of the 2010s. There's nothing wrong about that.

    Also very true on the old sets being cheap... a bunch of those buttons were jelly beans... jelly beans!
