Trivia

The writers and producers of the show faced such harsh criticism from fans for their constant failure to adhere to established Star Trek canon (Spock having a sister, the ship's high level of technology, etc), that at the end of the second season they opted to send the Discovery to the far future where it would not cause any further canonical problems with previous Star Trek shows and films. As part of this attempted retcon, characters in the Discovery's original time period vowed never to speak of the ship, its technology, or its crew ever again). 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 within Section 31. See more »

Blown Away
24 September 2017 | by jrbales-93865See all my reviews

Did I watch the same program as others that are giving this a one star and complaining? The show blew me away! Of course, I paid for CBS Access and have already watched the second episode so for those that complain of "cardboard" characters, give it a rest...it's the first episodes! I have quickly become invested in the backstory of Michael Burnham as well as the Klingons. And complaining about the CGI? Technology has changed so much over the last 50 years that what is available to movie makers and TV directors/producers is so far advanced from the original series...even from the days of TNG, Enterprise, and the others. Enjoy the technical improvement instead of bashing it. Costumes and makeup are extraordinary. Acting is great, actors well chosen for their roles. And the more episodes filmed, the more we learn about characters...they flesh out. Actors become more comfortable in their roles and have more story line to work with to develop their backstories. (Don't believe me? Watch the first couple of episodes of TMG and observe how wooden the actors were in their roles but they grew in to them quickly). So if you find it unwachable? Don't bother to sign up for CBS All-Access. I hadn't planned to but it's worth the low cost of putting up with commercials just to watch this show every week.
