Bryan Fuller's on board? Nice. And Goldsman and Kurtzman are pretty good TV writers, at least.

He was on board. He apparently came up with the framework for the show, but left before they got anywhere, and retained a credit. :-(

Manakish is popular in most Levantine countries, as well as in many cities throughout the world where people of Levantine origin have settled.

the song should be the noise VGer makes and the producers should go around the country executing whoever watches this poo poo

It does figure Kurtzman would reuse the idea of flying through a debris field in a space suit.

The "igniter enable" terminology (and the entire thruster suit, come to think of it) come directly from that sequence.

I think the idea was it was too debris filled to get a shuttle through, a person would be small enough.

so this is dumb but in theory you could beam someone next to some poo poo unprotected, let them observe it for 3-4 seconds, and then beam them back just fine

So far it's pretty and Star Trekky, but there's nothing which makes me think this takes place before TOS at all.

I would totally have bought it as 100 years after Voyager. Shame they just didn't do that. Probably could have told pretty much the same stories they wanted to tell too.
