I think it's safe to say now that the show shows a lot of promise. Without giving away anything, there is more at stake than Federation-Klingon relations. The third episode (which really is the first episode) also had more interaction between the characters, most of them newly introduced. There doesn't seem to be a lot of diversity as of yet, though. Only one of the characters is non-human, from what I can tell. Well, I don't mean to get political. Based on what we know and what we don't know about the characters, who knows what they turn out to be.
