The 3rd episode was directed by Brannon Braga, a producer from TNG, Voyager and Enterprise. Episode 4 was directed by James Conway, who also directed episodes of TNG, DS9 and Enterprise. And lo and behold, Riker himself, Jonathan Frakes is the director of episode 5. They should have just come out and said this is a Star Trek spinoff that takes place in the same universe if they wanted to make another Star Trek show.
Seth doesn't have the rights to do a Star Trek show. And the point of the show was to make a Star Trek show that is lighter and more optimistic to offset the slew of darker and edger sci-fi, which now includes Star Trek itself.


Let's make some magic.
