I don't know, maybe it's just preliminary CGI or the lower definition of Youtube, but that just looks... I don't know... amateurish?

That CGI doesn't even look as good as the early DS9/Voyager stuff, it's gotta be preliminary rendering.

Yea i think thats what it is, super early trial. Most likely to wet the pallet. I read the ship design is an early concept one from back around TOS. Looks Klingonish to me. I just hope they do the Disco justice, feel like ive invested some time on that ship already :)

From that trailer... lots of nope.
Ship = Ugly
Music = No
Rendering = Poor (and for a new Star Trek series a teaser like that was bound to not be well received)
Logo = Decent

Registry and style seems to indicate pre TOS, maybe ten or fifteen years before.

yeah, it felt more like an early 2000s fan film or video game intro.

I think I'll reserve judgement until we see some final renders. It's not unheard of for trailers to use early versions of the CGI in order to rush them out to the fans. As far as the design goes, I'm hoping this is some sort of stolen klingon ship or something, it doesn't look starfleet at all beyond the saucer.

With the announcement of the series' title in July 2016 came a promotional video giving a first look at the USS Discovery. The video did not feature final designs, as the producers had "three weeks to throw that together. We wanted to show fans ... The concepts of the ship are totally what we’re going for and they’ll be honed up until, I think, the day we deliver." Music for the video was composed by Fil Eisler.

F'ed up that statement about time restraints - Soong

Wow, any idea if it was as huge as the Enterprise D we ended up with?

Soch,you're a little mixed up. That wasn't the original D concept or Phase 2. This design was from Planet of the Titans, the screenplay that eventually became the Phase 2 concept. It was still supposed to be the Connie refit. The whole idea of the Refit in TMP came from Titans and was carried over to the "In Thy Image" pilot for Phase II, which eventually became TMP.

Looks like the cast has been chosen/revealed. I like Michelle Yeoh as the cap!

Sure you all have seen this by now but just in case.

Seems like the XO is a mix of Spok and Ohura from the new JJ movie series on just the trailer. CG looks crazy great!
