"But unlike conventional cryonics, which attempts to preserve the biological components of a person’s body or brain, this new school of cryobiology envisions “synthetic revival”—a process in which the complete database of a single individual’s neurological information can be used to create a new digital version. The revived digital brain, also known as a whole brain emulation, could be uploaded into a computer simulation or robotic body. But because the system involves destructive scanning, the biological components of the original brain would be destroyed by the toxic chemical bath during the preservation process. Following preservation and stabilization, these brains would be cut into extremely fine slices, and then individually scanned. Together, the collection of digitized brain slices would represent an uninstantiated individual."

Sounds oddly familiar somehow....

Your accents are adorable...

I enjoyed it though!
Not at all what I expected. And I have no idea whats happening, but I supposed thats to be expected somewhat in the first episode.

Excited to see where it goes.

Very interesting. I wonder how its going to shake out in the post - TV production value has gotten super high quality lately - world.
Sci fi shows are kind of in a weird spot lately; They usually can't get the money to pull off good special effects; but good TV has moved on to the point where its a lot harder to get away with bad special effects

I guess there is always Marvel if I want consistency.

Little confidence since Nu Trek. Not gonna hold my breath. If it is good, I guess I'll be pleasantly surprised.

Well that's interesting...

I wasn't actually aware Bryan Fuller had a long history of teleplay/story credits on VOY and a few on DS9, so he's certainly someone who gets Trek; Pushing Daisies is probably one of my favorite shows in recent memory, and I certainly hear good things about Hannibal.

At the very least, if this TV series lasts only a couple of seasons I'd expect them to be good :) CBS locking it behind their crummy paywall certainly isn't going to show it to a new audience.

JJ to reboot and garner interest, ANYBODY ELSE to actually write a story that makes sense and doesn't take a dump all over the lore for the second one...

Well, maybe 1 out of 2 won't be that bad :)
