    I don't feel so bad about not seeing it now.

    Of all the things I didn't like about the preview, the one that really bugs me, is that they're using the Enterprise delta badge as the badge for Starfleet, and they even have one on the back of a headrest on the bridge.

    The delta emblem has become synonymous with Starfleet, even though the correct Starfleet command emblem prior to TMP was the starburst emblem seen worn by command officers and Starbase personnel on TOS. As we all know, other ships and even outposts had their own emblems, much like unit patches in modern militaries. That was changed after Kirk's historic 5-year mission. The Enterprise emblem became *the* emblem for Starfleet. In the retconned beginning of Star Trek (2009) the Kelvin has that emblem. Presumably, that ship would be retired prior to the launch of the Enterprise in 2245, and the emblem was re-used for the Enterprise in the Prime Universe. However, in the Kelvin timeline, the destruction of the Kelvin allegedly made Starfleet adopt that emblem as its own. Why isn't answered, as the Kelvin was far from the first ship to be lost. Also, this is all conjecture that fits, as we never saw another ship in 2233.

    So, the use of that emblem and the design style overall puts this show in the Kelvin timeline.

    I do not think those running things know much more about trek than the last 3 jj films. Pacing, tonality it is all jjtrek.

    I wont be surprised if the Discovery itself is not much different from the sneak peak we got.

    It won't be different at all. It's JJ-Trek for TV.
