Hot Dang! Give me more Star Trek.

I do like the show, but it's not Star Trek. If this was just a new sci-fi show that existed in its own universe, it would be incredible. However, the fact that they've tried to pass this off as Star Trek when it's clearly not sullies the experience. If it wasn't already apparent, Paramount and CBS have no idea what made Star Trek great, and don't care either. The simple explanation is that the world of Star Trek is supposed to be optimistic; this is pessimistic. And I do enjoy pessimistic sci-fi, but there's so much of it, and to see one of the few optimistic sci-fi worlds turned into something pessimistic is a shame. Fortunately, we now have The Orville, which is doing Star Trek better than anything has since Voyager ended in 2001. The show is supposed to take place between Enterprise and TOS, but the technology is very different. For example, there are holograms everywhere. Why try to do a prequel *again*? Why not set this after Voyager? That would make a lot more sense, and they'd be able to add whatever technology they like, and not be constrained by existing continuity. Fortunately, it's not too late for the showrunners to say "hey, we made a mistake, this actually takes place X years after Voyager". Last, they fucked up the Klingons. For almost 25 years, they had the look of the Klingons figured out perfectly. They're iconic. But this show (and the reboot movies) messed them up and made them look like generic sci-fi bad guys. What happened to their hair and beards? Also, the costumes are ridiculous, and their ship interiors look like they're made of coral. I do like the idea of having an albino Klingon though. And I applaud their desire to use the Klingon language on the show, but it's pretty annoying having every Klingon scene subtitled. The previous shows used a common sci-fi conceit: the actors speak a language that the audience understands, but it's accepted that they're really speaking a different language. The viewer effectively has a universal translator so they can understand what's being said. Also, it looks nothing like Star Trek. Once again, The Orville got that right, and this didn't. All of that said, I do like the show. The characters are interesting (especially Doug Jones), I've enjoyed each episode, and I think the storyline is pretty interesting. But goddamn it, why did they have to try to make this Star Trek when it's not?

Not without it's faults; but resoundingly 'Star Trek' - great story, great acting, absolutely stunning visual effects - welcome back, Star Trek!

Discovery is the worst Star Trek so far. All of the over-the-top wannebe political correctness that governs our current day society has been stuck in just this one series. A woman in the lead role - fine with me. But why to give her a male name? So that we show that its fine to not be a woman or a man? And of course a gay relationship has to be part of the main story line. And a refuge that is fighting for his oppressed people. And a disturbed brother-sister relation. And augmentations to the body for - well, whatever reason. And body-shaming. And the challenges of not accepting your own body. And a relationship of a white woman with a alien husband, she went to live with him to his place, with a mixed DNA child not being accepted by society and then adopting another kid with....... oh my God, please, is it really all necessary to be stuck into the series in such an over the top way?? Season 2 at least does not have a lot of those fake Klingons anymore. That was the worst of all, even being untrue to the original Star Trek Klingons. I'm still watching the series, but I hope it will stop trying to be so extremely endless wannebe politically correct. At times its nauseating.

So far it's pretty bad... ( the Last episode I watched is #5)... According to Trakt, this show has 9 episodes, and so far nothing important or interesting happens. There is no actual overarching plot so far. While this was true for the first season of the Expanse too. That many different seemingly unconnected plot threads only connected at the end of the season for a big climax, here there are no multiple plot threads to connect. The Discovery discovered mushroom magic propulsion technology which allows them to teleport their ship where they want. This is the crux of the plot so far. There is a war with the Klingons and the Discovery is the only ship equipped with the magic mushroom drive. And that's it... This is not helped at all by how unbelievable the main character is written. She is a rebel in a military organization that *constantly* disobeys direct orders. Cpt Picard or Cpt Sisko would have kicked her out from their ship\starbase right away. Klingons are one-dimensional villains who have only one mode 'Kill Enemies'. For some reason, they also don't want to 'culturally appropriate' the Klingon language so this results in tedious extremely long scenes where Klingon characters speak only Klingon. This happens in Game of Thrones too when they speak Valyrian, but the scenes are never as long or tedious as the Klingon speaking scenes in Discovery... Also, normally I don't care about things like this, but it seems the show went out of its way to cast as little white men as possible. As I said, this is not something I would usually care about, but it's so comically obvious that it's disturbing. It's like they are living in a world where there was a plague that killed 90% of the staight male population...

It feels like the producers want to annoy the Trekkie as much as they can with Voyager-era beeping sounds, trials without a lawyer (Starfleet ISN'T military!!!), a completely different Sarek... Besides from the canon errors, which I have finally been able to overlook since episode two, the main character herself isn't one that "fits" into Star Trek. I only talk about the role, not the actress. I just don't like Michael. She is self-righteous, calls daddy when her ship is in danger, she isn't loyal... In short, she misses any part of personality a Starfleet officer should have. She's got a problem with herself and it is absolutely unrealistic she would be an officer anywhere. Update time! The text above was from Oct 17. Now it's Jan 23. Aaaand: I was right: She wasn't welcomed on the Discovery because she's a great Officer, she just accidentally happened to be this universe's counterpart of someone Mirror Lorca needed to become Emperor. So it's official: We've got Star Trek with an incapable main character. Oh yeah, as presumed, she's messed up like 97% of her tasks in the meantime.

Enjoyable but so far it's hard to overlook it's flaws . My main gripes - Too much lens flare and shaky cam . And for taking place before TOS , the technology is sure advanced . Instead of making things fittingly primitive they went whole hog on the tech to show off the special effects . I didn't expect TOS grade special effects , I did expect a fusion of old tech with upgraded effects , what we ended up with is a shockingly unbelievable level of technology paired with movie grade special effects . Don't even get me started on the changes to the Klingons .

I am doggedly watching the whole season (down to the last two episodes) because I've always been a Star Trek fan and because I love Jason Isaacs and will watch him in anything. Except I can barely force myself to keep going. First of all, it's not really a Star Trek series. As others have pointed out, Star Trek is optimistic. This is dark, and violent and filled with war and torture. I find myself going to the kitchen frequently to avoid having my stomach turned. I have never seen a TV show so filled with screaming, killing, and despair. I will watch these last two episodes just to say I finished it, but I can't imagine paying to see the next season unless I read that it takes a turn in a different direction.

Much better than expected. The first 3 episodes have been great!! Update: I'm done with it at episode 5... it's all about one person (Michael) and her dull and boring battle with everybody every week. Why are the Klingons so ugly? What was wrong with the original ones?
