You'll have to sign-up for the CBS access or whatever though just to watch the first episode.

Naw. First couple of episodes will air on CBS. Two part pilot? After that....paywall.

lol CBS All Access even has commercials when you sign up to pay. You pay for the privilege of watching commercials!

It's a LOT of lens flare though. Basically every interior shot. The entire aesthetic looks like its trying to be JJ Verse...though they keep repeating that this is in the Prime timlines. So I don't know wtf.

Clearly whoever is making the decisions hates, hates, HATES, the whole TNG/DS9/VOY aesthetic.

Umm, the JJ enterprise looks like a gigantic macbook or iphone. The discovery does not look even close to it. In fact, looks more like something from Stargate Universe.

Not talking about the ship. Talking about the camera work, color grading, and lighting. The overall aesthetic. You're right though, this is much darker. Much easier to do darker on TV. The ship in that trailer, btw, is not the Discovery. It's the USS Shenzhou:

The USS Discovery is something more like this, last we heard:

Which is so goddamn awful and the backlash from the fans so intense, that it doesn't even appear in the trailer. Perhaps they'll come through and wow us with a surprise redesign.
