Did You Know?


The list of most decorated captains in Starfleet history contains many old and current names from Star Trek lore: Jonathan Archer was captain of the first starship Enterprise (NX-01) and one of the founding fathers of the Federation; Robert April was the first captain of the USS Enterprise (NC-1701), Christopher Pike the second and current one. Matthew Decker is the current captain of the USS Constellation (Enterprise's sister ship). Finally, Philippa Georgiou was captain of the destroyed USS Shenzhou in the pilot episode. See more »


Saru: I have much to attend to, and I could use your help with one thing.
Michael Burnham: Of course.
Saru: Dr. Culber believes the Tardigrade is sentient. It remains in a state of cryptobiosis. We have no claim on its soul. Go save its life, Burnham. That's an order.

What happen to the Klingons
17 October 2017 | by Undeadzombie36See all my reviews

Just watched the first five episodes today and im sorry, but this show is going to be cancelled. Most of the characters are boring. The captain is the best character by far, Michael Burnham is also a good character. I think who ever wrote the character of Michael Burnham meant to call her Michelle and Michael was a typo. I will use the family cat and beam to CBS studios and bitch slap them all oh yeah i almost forget a moving starship going from place to place in a blink of a eye is just ridiculous. But the worse reason this show will never work. Why in the bloody hell would you change the Klingons to look like this. If Star Trek had only one other show I could live with it, but after all the movies and 4 TV shows why why and repeat again WHY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. i do what this show to work but it never will and it simple cause they changed the Klingons and for the subtitles CBS leave them up longer so people can read them.
