Another waste of everyone's time.
15 October 2017 | by ShutupwesleySee all my reviews

It just gets worse. The writing is atrocious, the plot is dull. Five episodes in now and not a glimmer of fun, of hope, of aspiration, nothing. To call this Star Trek is an insult to every fan, and everyone who has worked on a Trek production.

They can't even get the descriptions right "notorious intergalactic criminal Harry Mudd"? What? He is now traveling between galaxies?

The people working on STD in creative roles should be ashamed of what they have done. Go away and leave Star Trek alone before you do any more damage, hacks.
