After watching the first part/episode, the crew apparently has several years of history together, and yet they often interact as though it’s the maiden voyage; The captain asks questions of the first officer in a manner that sometimes is unclear whether the captain is testing the first officer or is just legitimately uninformed; The first 12 minutes are extremely dialogue heavy with very little relevance to the story; and the first officer and science officer needlessly bicker. In previous Treks, while crewmates might disagree, there was a clear chain of command or at the very least respect, but this crew seems to lack that. At best, the first officer seems the captain’s pupil, and the crewmates bicker just because.
Oddly enough, the best part about the pilot is the Klingons, not the Starfleet crew.
And while yes, I agree that the title sequence feels like it could be in a medical drama, I didn’t think it was generally bad, just didn’t have the feeling of exploring “Space, the final frontier…”
The truth of the matter is, the Kelvin Timeline felt much more like Prime Universe Trek than this does.
