Of the three Star Trek shows, this will be my favorite.

I suspect it will fall victim to the current trend of identity politics and nihilism in trek shows today.

Don't have to watch Trek to see lots of identity politics and nihilism today.

Captain Pike was a great addition to Discovery's second season, so this is good news.There's a lot can be done with him, given that we only saw Pike in the original pilot.
Leonard Nimoy is a hard act to follow for anyone plus this actor has to depict a younger Spock who isn't as advanced on his road to reconciling his human and Vulcan natures.
I wonder if they will put in place the other bridge crew we saw briefly in the pilot?
The interviews suggest less dark, more optimistic, more classic Trek. However we can't seriously expect a clone of a 60's series, things have moved on. In that regard it's ironic, as a strong female "Number One" was perceived as a step too far originally and she didn't make it past the pilot.
Prequels always bring continuity problems unless the writers are going to operate in a strait jacket.
It will certainly mess up the many "early years" type novels that have been written over the decades!
