Star Trek gets another one right.

Woot, it looks great, and the new Captain looks best of all. I'm glad it's making people happy that the actress is keeping her natural accent instead of trying to put on a fake one. It's hard to grok why that wouldn't just go without saying, especially with a voice as beautiful as hers. Star Trek has always presumed that diversity is the usual thing in Starfleet, and certainly no barrier to promotion. Lots of characters over the years have had fake accents, on purpose so the crews don't sound like nothing but a bunch of Californians; nice to hear an authentic accent for a change.
