Trivia

Mia Kirshner (Amanda Grayson) worked on the TV show, The L Word (2004), playing Jenny Schecter. Anthony Rapp's (Paul Stamets/Lt. Cmdr. Paul Stamets) real life brother, Adam Rapp, worked as a Creative Consultant on the show and had written one of the episodes (The L Word: Lifesize (2006)). See more »

Goofs

In Star Trek: The Next Generation (which takes place more than a century after Discovery), much was made of the fact that Worf was the first Klingon to serve in Starfleet. However, Ash Tyler (aka Voq) is a Klingon who serves aboard Discovery (and later within Section 31). Even though Tyler was believed human for most of his time on Discovery, his true heritage became common knowledge among the crew and certain Starfleet officials. This is one of the many reasons why the producers of the show chose to officially expunge Discovery and her crew during the Season 2 finale, so their decisions would no longer contravene established canon.

Alternate Versions

When Season 1 was broadcast on CBS in the fall of 2020, the main title sequence was shortened to just the show name and the ship fly-by. The credits themselves ran during the first act. See more »

Congrats on killing a 50 year franchise
28 January 2018 | by prairientalSee all my reviews

After watching the 1st episode of Discovery which was broadcast over the air, I'm not surprised to see all the negative reviews. As is often typical in "reboots", in an effort to make everything bigger and better, it's just change for change sake. From the Klingon redesign, to the various (sometimes laughable) uniforms, the aliens as well as the cast dialog and interactions, I had no desire to watch another episode - let alone pay for it. I've watched every Star Trek series from the original on and although some series were better than others, this one is a joke. Seems to be yet another instance of the bean counters overseeing the creative process. Congrats on killing a 50 year franchise.
