Check out the first teaser for CBS's new Star Trek


It's new, new, new!

News of a new Star Trek got me very excited, especially when I heard it would take place in the original universe not Abrams. I enjoy Abrams verse, actually, but I think a TV show is better suited for the old verse. This teaser doesn't look like the old universe, though. There's enough lens flare going on and "videogame" style looks that it's making me wonder if we'll be getting the action-oriented Star Trek and not the thought provoking one. 

And yet, when the original theme kicked in I was two steps away from actually signing up for CBS All Access. I'm such a sucker. 

I am a huge Star Trek fan, but I am not a huge fan of paying CBS a monthly fee just to watch the show (and their other shows). I can't subscribe to every channel, and that's what CBS is trying to make us do by not dropping their shows on Hulu until after the season is over if they do it at all. I understand they want to be another Netflix, but I've only go so much money in my wallet. At least we'll be able to check out the first episode of Star Trek for free. 

At the same event that CBS dropped this trailer they also announced the second show for All Access will be a  The Good Wife spin-off. They'll need to to do a bit more to make paying them worthwhile.
