Did You Know?


"Star Trek: Discovery" is the first "Star Trek" television series not made in the United States. The series is filmed at Pinewood Toronto Studios in Canada. See more »


Despite being a prequel, set 10 years before the original Star Trek and more than a century before The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine and Voyager, the Discovery is far more advanced than any of the ships from those series (spore drive, holographic displays, automated self-covering spacesuits, etc.). The first Starfleet ship that was seen using holographic communications (as opposed to a standard viewscreen) was the Defiant in Deep Space Nine, set approximately 120 years after Discovery.

Alternate Versions

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

Problems even after 3 seasons!
11 May 2021 | by destructor-61011See all my reviews

Why oh why is every damn episode about Burnham? If she was a likeable character then fair enough but - and let's be honest - she shouldn't even be on board a starship, let alone a ranking officer!

Saru is a likeable character, Tilly is.. well.. Tilly.

And the rest of the bridge crew?

Umm.. unlike, TOS, TNG, Voyager and Enterprise where people could name the majority of the bridge crew after the 1st season, with Discovery, I haven't a clue!

And this is after 3 seasons!! That alone says it all!!

The Art work, CGI/FX are absolutely stunning but the characters are just so hollow.

With the exception of Saru, the rest could all be replaced and I doubt anyone would notice the difference.

This is down to just poor scripts. Get rid of the current writers and get some in who know how to create characters and stories that we want to invest our time in.

And CBS should put someone in charge of the project who at least cares about the franchise.

The only real notable characters were Orca, Georgia, Pike, Spock and Saru.

That really does say it all...

One more season maybe to turn things around?

Let's hope they don't screw up the Georgia series or Pikes return in the Enterprise...
