The first trailer has been released and it included the new ship!

USS Protostar

And apparently they are taking the "bridge window" to the extreme...
but at least the ship appears to be rather small.

Looks good.

And as for why Janeway is the hologram, I had a thought.

Remember the Doctors 'Emergency Command Hologram'?

Maybe the 'Command Hologram' has different settings between numerous Captains.

It's so when they comment on or approve of something, I know what pages to block/what not to vote for.

The ship seems to take a few cues from the kelvin timeline, look at those amble nacelles, but otherwise fine.

Protostar is kind of a dumb name though.

I really don't like the new aesthetic.
They say, "the tree of liberty must be watered with the blood of tyrants and patriots." I suppose it never occurred to them that they are the tyrants, not the patriots. Those weapons are not being used to fight some kind of tyranny; they are bringing them to an event where people are getting together to talk. -Mike Wong

But as far as board culture in general, I do think that young male overaggression is a contributing factor to the general atmosphere of hostility. It's not SOS and the Mess throwing hand grenades all over the forum- Red

I really do.

I've seen the first few episodes and to be honest it's really freaking good. The designs are wonderful, the animation is gorgeous, the Intro is beautiful and I like the cast. All of them are good, in praticular Kate delivers a good performance as Holo-Janeway. The worldbuilding is introduced at a nice pace.

Moreover I feel that this is what Star Trek needs to survive. It manages to capture the hopeful feel that Star Trek thrives on.

Does anyone else suspect that Holo-Janeway knows that these kids aren't Starfleet cadets ?

Most likely but then I suspect that she might be faking that to be able to help the kids without violating some protocols. Also she might be also Stealth recruiting them into Starfleet via that way too.

Maybe. But they aren't Federation citizens, which means they can't join Starfleet without a letter of recommendation. I don't think Holo-Janeway will be able to give them one. But getting them to Federation space is probably better for them than anywhere else they can think of going.

Also, remember that this is a show aimed at children. Holo-Janeway using their own lies to manipulate them would be an interesting moral lesson.

Possible Protocal Holo-janeway is using :

"When under the control of non-Starfleet/Federation crew, get the ship back to Federation territory. Once there, head to the nearest starbase, with the crew unconcious if they resist, to let legitimate authorities decide what to do with them."

Yeah. The idea of a training hologram being the only holographic crew on a ship with an experimental engine is a bit suspicious. Especially one that's locked out of systems that might be helpful if an emergency incapacitates the organic crew.

I think they probably are; they're mostly from Federation species, and there was recently a reference to a sleeper ship.

I don't think she's trying to recruit them though, that'd be unusually duplicitous.

When I said "stealth recruiting" what I meant is that she's trying to show how "cool" starfleet is so that once the Protostar makes to UFP space those kids might be more willing to join starfleet by their own will. What I didn't mean was that she's trying to make them starfleet members without them knowing it.

So less covert recruitment and more ad for starfleet in the guise of survival.
