How many of those viewers will now sign up for the streaming service CBS All Access and pay for more?

That's the big question, and complaint.

"Discovery" had a two-part series opener but the second part is still behind a pay wall. It's out there, though, so spoilers are out there too, revealing what happened next to First Officer Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin Green) and Captain Georgiou (Michelle Yeoh).

"Star Trek" fans are ... well, let's call it "discerning." If all "Star Trek" series were ripped apart by Twitter after one episode they would not have made it as far as they did. Some "Discovery" viewers were annoyed with the lens flare, dark tone, or look of the Klingons. Others called out inconsistencies in the plot. Others felt compelled to compare it to the other new show, "The Orville." But many other fans were hooked on the premiere, loving the characters already -- including appearances from Sarek -- and intrigued by the Klingon War plot.

Overall, Twitter seemed to embrace the show, but maybe not enough to pay $5.99 a month with limited commercials or $9.99 a month for commercial free streaming.

That last one seems to be the goal. It's frustrating to many viewers that CBS has new shows like "Young Sheldon" and "Me, Myself & I" coming to the network, but you have to pay for more "Discovery," and more of "The Good Wife" spinoff, "The Good Fight." Maybe if one of the new shows doesn't work out, it can be replaced with "Discovery."

Here are more details on CBS All Access.
