Goofs

In the final scene Michael Burnham opens the case left to her by Captain Georgiou. It contains a family telescope, the same one that was in her ready room on the USS Shenzhou. If no effort was made to recover the ship to keep it from falling into the hands of the Klingons how did the telescope make it to Burnham? See more »

Quotes

Michael Burnham: How do you know it's a monster, Commander?
Commander Landry: Because I've seen what it's capable of. So have you. Let's call it Ripper.

No Trek is better than bad Trek
9 October 2017 | by winthe1981See all my reviews

so i have given this 4 episodes with an open mind and tried to look past the fact that it's using star trek branding when it has nothing to do with star trek, and am throwing in the towel. no one can say i didn't try to get in to this. i have watched each episode twice to no avail. it just makes me angry more than entertained and i have better things to do with my time than to spend it getting angry at a stupid TV show.

perhaps if it was a 3rd party scifi series it may have ironically done better in its own right than it has but slapping star trek branding all over it and getting every body's heckles up, so its an outright no from me.
