Trivia

The design of the USS Discovery bears a strong resemblance to the original concept design (by Ralph McQuarrie) of the refitted Enterprise for the canceled film Star Trek: Planet of the Titans (1970s). When that film was canceled, the design was also considered for the canceled television series "Star Trek: Phase II" (1978). 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.

No inspiration, NOT Star Trek
13 March 2018 | by pjgowthamSee all my reviews

Star trek is about inter species politics, technological gap, boundaries, exploration and ethics. Star trek is more like a projected future which portrays the best version of humanity possible. There is no place for dark future here as the core of this series.

Discovery is based on the original timeline. This series is supposed to happen after star trek enterprise. The technologies were a bit advanced for the timeline. The show failed to focus on earth's people, about the federation, dialogues that explain the psychology of the characters. Clearly, the directors of the series don't know star trek.

The vulcan logic, The klingon strength ,are all ignored comfortably in this show. The humans are shown as depressed warmongers

Klingons live by their honour. They aren't bald shiny orcs. These were unlike any klingons in the previous series. They are so different ( In a bad way). This show is pure graphical entertainment, no story, not prequel - like at all. There was no life to the story. Fan made star trek is way better than discovery.

This show is a disgrace for the whole star trek franchise. The directors should back off if they don't understand Star Trek. I hope season 2 is not this grim.
