You can see the similarities between this and the Studio 60 pilot, sure, but, let's face it, they're all really about the same thing and it was just interesting enough to make it work (plus I've always liked Jeff Daniels, so I'm glad to see him in a starring role).
The Klingons are there. You can see one fighting Benedict Cumberland's character in the teaser before this one. In the JJ Abrams universe, they wear helmets and trenchcoats. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W66bSajPGtQ
