I agree with a lot of what Midnight and RLM have had to say about ST:D.
Honestly, ST:D could be a decent "gritty" sci-fi show. In fact I am one of the trekkies who loved DS9 and have always had a place in my heart for shows like Battlestar Galactica or Black Mirror. Star Trek, however, should be a show that is optimistic or at least has a fun spirit to it. Even for someone who is a fan of the Kelvin timeline, this show really does not have the same Star Trek tone that even Enterprise got.
If this show was just called "Void" or something else suitably ominous and presented as is, stripped of all of the Star Trek framing, I would probably get into it. As it stands though, this show not only feels out of touch by incredibly desperate to try and grab new fans but steamrolling over the legacy of Star Trek by setting it near the same period and timeline as TOS.
Factoring in all of the bad business decisions on the part of CBS I do not see this show surviving past a single season, maybe two. So perhaps it is good that I do not get invested, or try to get invested, in its characters and arcs. It is really just a shame that all of those great sets and CGI is going to waste.
