Trivia

The Starfleet vessels seen in the first season, including the Discovery, the Shenzou and the redesigned Enterprise, were all designed by production artist John Eaves. Eaves work with Star Trek spans three decades. Probably his most notable contribution was the design of the Enterprise-E for Star Trek: First Contact (1996). 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.

Dumbed down
24 August 2019 | by Jack_C_See all my reviews

TNG and DS9 hold the bar for what Star Trek should be - philosophically inspiring explorations into a possible future we can all aspire to, even in the midst of intergalactic war. Discovery is an insult to their legacy.

Season 1 is a tired, dumbed down, shoot them up, mumble jumble of betrayals and double betrayals. A couple of great ideas like the mycelial network and alternate dimensions were explored, but we were only treated to superficial whip cream, not the sundae.

Klingons degenerated into barely comprehensible villains who have to spit out every word. Their bleached skin, one-dimensional characters have no redeemable value. I miss the warrior race bound by ritual and honor we both loved and hated in past incarnations. The female empowerment clap trap was not consistent with their misogynistic culture and seemed slapped on like a dead fish.

Season 2 held promise until episode 7. New Eden almost transported me back to the TNG days. As soon as Spock joined the plot, the story became grade school and every character's IQ dropped below 90. The last episode of Season 2 redeemed it a bit, but not enough to make me pick up season 3.

Don't trust the studio hacked ratings. No Trekkie would rate this over 5 stars. Netflix needs to stop paying for the international rights as it is simply rewarding bad behavior. Hope it gets cancelled.
