I'm of two minds on that ship name. On the one hand, the rational part of my brain thinks that we've had ship classes named after astronomical phenomena before (Nebula, Galaxy, etc.) and sees nothing wrong with it. But the aesthetic part of my brain just doesn't think it sounds like a ship name.

The ship looks pretty good though.

Looks like it's a relatively small ship? Can't see what's going on on the underside, but the top half looks like maybe four or five decks?

Not really a fan of the Abramsverse-looking nacelles or the bridge (?) that's almost entirely glass.

I like the design of the ship, from what little we’ve seen. The fore-aft profile looks a little simplistic, almost diamond-shaped. I agree it looks like about a 5- or 6-deck upper saucer, which suggests a ship slightly larger than a Nova but definitely smaller than an Intrepid.

It’s hard to see for sure, but yeah, it definitely looks like there’s plenty of windows on the bridge. Which doesn’t bother me as much when it’s not a glaring anachronism. (Abrams and Disco) After all, the Enterprise-E had a blank wall with a holographic viewscreen, so why not just have windows instead? It makes just as much sense as having the whole bridge exposed at the top of the ship anyhow. [Wink]

Soooo...set in the Delta Quadrant...in 2383. But, there's a whole-ass recent-build Starfleet ship just, y'know...sitting there. Plus there's a Medusan & a Tellarite that looks nothing like a Tellarite. In the Delta Quadrant. And a holo-Janeway. And they're making more novelverse shit canon with this Brikar thing.

My butthole is spasming.

Oh no! They’re bringing names and aliens from the novels into canon! I’m sure Hikaru Sulu and Nyota Uhura would never stand for that.

Considering that there’s a Talaxian now settled down over 40,000 light years from his homeworld and Humans who observed the Borg in the Delta Quadrant in the 2350s, I can think of all sort of possible ways for a Tellarite to make it it out that far from home. And Starfleet misplaces its shit all the time, I have no trouble believing it lost a prototype, especially if it was testing a new propulsion system. (Just guessing there.)

At least we know how Neelix got there. We never did get an explanation as to how all the other Talaxians crossed the entire quadrant.

Plus we don't know that this initial world they're all escaping from is in the Delta Quadrant. Could be that Starfleet built the prototype ship, lost it in the Alpha/Beta Quadrant, the kids find it, engage the drive again, and wind up in the Delta Quadrant.

True, except that if it were a one-off character, many nitpickers wouldn’t find “Neelix hitchhiked 40,000 light years in 7 years” to be a satisfactory answer. There’s a lot of weird stuff that happens in Trek, but we often expect it to all be explained perfectly and on-screen. [Wink]

Agreed. We can’t make too many assumptions yet.

After all the Discovery monstrosities it's good to finally see something familiar again. Not too keen on the name.

The animation looks amazing.

Prodigy Main Title Sequence

Music's nice.

I'm not wowed by the visuals. The Protostar travelling by/in/past representations of the main characters, I think?

The Protostar seems to have two different modes. The second mode looks very Dauntless-esque, so we might very well be dealing with a quantum slipstream drive.

Agreed, the music is excellent. I wasn’t surprised to see it was composed by Michael Giacchino.

The visuals seem a bit “simple” but it feels right… and presumably will look better with the actual text appearing. And personally, I prefer it to the design student’s orgasm that is the Discovery credits.

Edit: The scenes the ship is flying though are the main characters! I can’t believe I didn’t spot that. I like it a lot more knowing that.

The one with the ENT theme is better. The music is meh.

The Janeway hologram should wear a FC or LD uniform as the ship's clearly not from the DS9/VOY jumpsuit era.

I dunno, I think it fits. Janeway at her most (in)famous. Let's say the training hologram resembled Kirk instead of Janeway. Could you really picture holo-Kirk wearing any uniform besides either the TOS or WoK one?
