Has there ever been a good series on CBS?
1.) It looks like the credit sequences of the Abrams-movies. It might just be brand recognition, i'll give them that, but this worries me greatly.

2.) The Arrowhead looks too fat. Doesn't the Arrowhead look too fat to anyone else?

3.) Speaking of the Arrowhead - it's both a symbol for Starfleet and for Star Trek in general, usually depicted just plain as itself with maybe the Command Division star from TOS in the middle. This version, however, has a weird line down the right side, which might indicate that it's actually the communicator / patch used for the show. This, too, worries me as it looks decidedly TOS.

4.) "New Crews". There have been rumors about an anthology show which i'm not sure what to think of. On the one hand the prospect of multiple ships excites me. On the other hand the budget required for multiple standing sets for multiple ships at the same time might just lead to sub-par looking locations. (They could get around this to some extent by having each season take place on a new ship, but that way you'd have barely a chance to get to know the characters.) I'm generally open to the idea, in fact as a kid i wanted something like that, but... let's not take any chances with fancy ideas, yeah? Can we just do Star Trek again for a change?

5.) "New Villains".

Look, a good bay guy spices up the series and you need conflict of any kind for your show, otherwise your episodes would revolve about pushing cargo around and the character-arcs would devolve into soap operas. But when you have THIS LITTLE information to show and "New Villains" makes it into the feature list? That's troublesome. Plus: what the fuck happened to the old viallains? Is this another variant of changing Star Trek around for the sake of not doing Star Trek? Why the fuck even use the IP then?

6.) I absolutely hate the Hyperdrive-y Warp effect. But at least it's not the literally ripped-off Hypderdrive-effect from Into Darkness, i guess.

7.) "New Heroes".
Can we just get a regular crew? 'cause this sounds like we're going to save fucking Earth again every week.
Speaking of Earth:

8.) Could we fucking STOP plastering Earth all over modern day-Star Trek, kkthxbye?

9.) "New Worlds".
Well i fucking hope so.

10.) Browny Points for the Star Trek fanfare. Already better soundtrack than JJ-Trek. I really, really, REALLY hope they use the Movie / TNG Theme. It's about damn time for some quality music in this house.

11.) What's up with that font? Edge Trek much?

12.) No actual title? Just "Star Trek"? Are, uh, are we sure we don't wanna add a title there, guys? ... anytime now, please?

13.) "CBS Network".

Yeah no fuck off, see you guys on Youtube or DvD if this shit's any good.

Paid Sub CBS Network.

Shit's probably not even available outside of Eagleland even if i wanted to.

Edit: Bonus point:
14.) How much more interesting, nostalgic and all-in-all heartwarming would this little teaser (that gives fuckall info, btw) be if it wasn't ruined by the Dramatic Trailer Guy? :/

Could be good, though I hope they move away from the Abrams style. His Star Trek films just didn't do it for me.

I had honestly forgotten about this completely.
Too early to tell anything at all at this point. Its not very hard to do be better than the latter half of Voyager and the entirety of Enterprise, however.

Fuck yes, an anthology! And with swappable bridge modules being canon, they won't even have to build new sets each season.

Now put it into the Lost Era and I'm game. TWoK-styled uniforms on a tv show? Yes, please!

I thought Voyager got better as the series went on. It helped that they abandoned the Maquis sub-plot that they weren't ever willing to address (it could have been great if they had done something with it, but by the end of Season 1 it was too late). Plus they ditched the Kazon, who were one of the least memorable Star Trek antagonist races.

The early seasons did introduce the Vidiians, who were pretty cool villains. The Hirogen were reliable heavies, though they were basically the Star Trek version of the Predator.

However, it's been ages since I've seen the show, so my memory's hazy.
