How does it rank with the other Star Trek series so far?

Hard to say... Got a nice TNG vibe here. Discovery was completely new and off putting from the overhaul of the Klingon race but it eventually found its way.

It's nice to see a Trek that continues on from the TNG/DS9/Voyager time line. No prequels. No reboots. If you can watch this one it is worth it. Especially cool with todays CGI capabilities.

It's hard to say because there has only been one episode. As far as visual quality goes, it is comparable to ST Discovery. The special effects, the costumes, the aliens were all movie quality. The acting was good, of course Patrick Stewart is amazing. I think the story for this season, which I don't want to say because I can't say it without spoilers, is very interesting. The tone is darker than TNG, reminds me a bit of DS9. The original three ST series were episodic, this one will have a continuing story through the season. I imagine there will be some standalones, like Discovery had one now and then.

Also, if you haven't seen this, I think it's kind of adorable. I would love to learn more about Guinan!

The first episode was fantastic. Iím not a huge ST geek, so I am sure there are tie-ins just like SCG mentioned that I didnít really pick up on, but for someone thatís only passingly familiar with the Star Trek universe, I have to say I really enjoyed the first episode. It was a fun ride.

The Easter eggs I noticed were in the archives. Like I remember the banner, and stuff like that.

My CBS account is currently cancelled.  So I'm going to wait until the season finishes because I'm a cheapskate.

When I counted the original tv series I forgot about Voyager :(  I don't hate Voyager, I still watch reruns all the time. SHAME ON ME.

Also, I am so cheap I watch all this stuff like a smooth criminal.

Arr, matey, I be watchiní it in ways not fit fer land lubbers as well, but honestly CBS is being jerks for making people that already have CBS pay extra for the series.

Saw the first episode.  Difficult to evaluate as this as it seems this series is going to be heavy into story arcs.  I have no idea where they're going to go with this.

Thanks for the link, SCG!  I didn't hear that they had released it for free.

Did yall catch the remark about the yellow and pink hybrid orchids?

In Star Trek: Picard the holograms are hot, and also Hugh is looking quite handsome.

At a glance, I think it was a Phalaenopsis.
I didn't catch the remark.

Overall, not happy with this show. 5/10. CGI looks shit and space battles look like a cheap computer game cut scene

Predictable twist at the end, won't spoil.

I hope they go back to self contained story episodes. This felt like 1 long episode. Not like TNG where I can go back and watch a fun episode

I hope this story arc is concluded

One good thing I'll say is it was nice to see the helpless girl in The Karate Kid 2 all grown up to rise through the ranks of Starfleet to be Commodore Oh

I know she's Asian but she plays an alien. Did she need an Earth Asian last name lol

For those that have finished watching, this video addresses many of the points as to why it failed

You can enjoy the show though, but put it on the same level with something like Killjoys or Dark Matter (except not as episodic) . Do not go in this thinking it's like TNG. It  doesn't hold a candle to that show

All my Trek nerd friends are disappointed. I didn't hate it, but it wasn't as good as it should have been.

I enjoyed the first season. I think folks remember the good bits out of TNG a lot more than they do the piles of trash episodes that exist. I find TNG much better through the filter of memory rather than rewatching it, and it was one of my favorites.
