Looks promising so far. More character development than the first three seasons of STD. Diverse cast, but not in your face.

Yes, IMO...

So far, it looks like modern take on classic episodic Trek, with more interesting characters than that other show about a galactic fungus infection.

Agreed. Felt a lot more like the OG trek and TNG. More so the OG version.

Why in a time which earth has unlimited nearly free energy are there still ugly wind turbines in Montana?

Other than that, I liked it.

You gotta imagine they have solved, or largely solved, energy storages problems by that point in history. Allowing for the what is already a safe method of power generation to be used considerably more effectively than today. Plus his entire home setup was a little more old school, so he could be using something more practical like that simply because he wants to.

Would be very disappointing if wind power generation was still around in the year 2258.

Disadvantages of wind energy
1. Unpredictable

Perhaps the biggest disadvantage to wind energy is that it cannot be produced consistently. Energy will only be produced when the wind blows.

The amount of energy produced by turbines also depends on the wind speed. Therefore, wind energy is not well-suited to be a base load energy source - AKA our main source of power generation.

However, as energy storage technology continues to become more cost-effective, it could be possible to become more reliant on wind energy. For right now though, because of its unreliability, wind turbines have to be used in tandem with other energy sources to meet our electricity demands.
2. Threat to wildlife

Wind energy does not cause environmental problems through greenhouse gas emissions, however, turbines can have an impact on wildlife.

Birds, bats, and other flying creatures have slim chances of surviving when taking a direct hit from a rotating wind turbine blade. In fact, studies have estimated that between 140,000 and 500,000 birds die from wind turbines each year. As a comparison, collisions with buildings are estimated to kill between 365 and 988 million birds annually.

Carefully planning where wind farms will be built can mitigate how many bird collisions occur.
3. Noise

Noise is a problem for some people that live in the proximity of wind turbines. The generator within the turbine makes a mechanical hum, while the blades create a “whooshing” sound as they move through the air.

However, the good news is, newer wind turbines generate much less noise than older turbines, and they will likely become even quieter with more technological advancements.
4. Looks

Wind turbines need to be built high in order to capture enough wind, which makes them a prominent part of any landscape. Some people find that large wind turbines are an eyesore, however, this is more of a personal preference.
5. Location limitations

In order for wind turbines to be economically viable, they need to be installed in a place where they will produce enough electricity. Wind farms are best suited for coastal areas, the tops of hills, and open planes - essentially anywhere with strong, reliable wind.

Most of these suitable places tend to be in remote areas far outside of cities and towns, in more rural areas or offshore. Because of this distance, new infrastructure, such as power lines, have to be built in order to connect a wind farm to the power grid.

This can be costly, and may cause some harm to the surrounding environment (i.e by tearing down trees to make way for power lines).

Again, most of those issues are likely solved. How often it blows doesn't matter if everything is hyper energy efficient and the energy storage is better. Issues with things like noise and stuff hitting it are all probably solved with future tech as well. It takes place hundreds of years in the future after all.

That said, it stood out to me as well. For all we know, it's a non-functional retro art piece

So I watched the first episode. Seems I am missing some backstory.
Is this an all new cast and series or do I need to watch something else to come up to speed. I am really lost between original and new gen roles.

I don’t remember Pike, Kirk and Spoc being in the same series. Wasn’t Kirk after Pike? I have completely forgotten what this whole series is about.

Let me know if I need to watch something else. I also don’t know anything about Picard series anymore.

Discovery S2 sets up Pike, Spock and #1.

The Kirk in Pike's Enterprise is Jim's brother, George Samuel.

Yeah, basically just look at this as a prequel series to Star Trek's original series with James T. Kirk and others.
