Here's a very good analysis (video below) of what's happening with Star Trek: Discovery, why it looks the way it does (i.e. not like The Original Series), what's going on behind the scenes, both in relation to production and the business side of things, early fan reaction and how it's rattled CBS and a possible way out for CBS if the series doesn't do as well as anticipated.
The Federation Times even gets a mention. This is the post referenced.
