I’ve finally figured out what the ‘Yay, math!’ bit between Tilly and Stamets reminded me of in the trailer.

‘Go, Team Venture!’

Haha, I totally see it now! I love Venture Bros.

I don’t understand why they “wigged” Pike. Mount’s hair is perfect as is.

Cool! I was certain I saw some “lace,” but I’m happy I didn’t.

Mount is a good-looking dude. But Jeffery Hunter’s eyes were piercing and amazing. I like the fact that it seems that Disco will have a rotating captain every season. That’s a neat concept.

Pretty sure the Great Bird referred to the Great Bird of the Galaxy…Gene Roddenberry…

Pretty sure Sulu talked about the Great Bird in TOS and the title was slapped onto Gene later by fans.
