    so it’s just the red carpet walking interviews from the actors and not a screening of the episode itself on the face book page

  • Trent

  • David Mireault

    Foreign ambassadors won’t be able to access the stream it seems. This makes me sad!

  • Ed Holton

    So instead of watching it on regular CBS programming, they are making one pay to see it? Just more media ripoff to make money. That is just sad. I expected more from Roddenberry and CBS…
