Michael Burnham: [voice-over] On the eve of battle, on a cold and windless night, an old general turned to a young soldier. "Tomorrow," said the master, "you will know fear." The young soldier, who had not yet experienced the agony of war, looked at the general with quizzical eyes. "How will I know fear if I do not know what it looks like?" The general replied, "You will know fear, because it speaks very fast, and it speaks very loud. -... - If that is how fear acts, recognizing it is easy. But as the young ...

I really dont understand why the producers don't like the uniforms ,aliens and the ships from Beyond
14 February 2018 | by batmanforever-93249See all my reviews

Because this is the final episode from the season i will try to make a list with everything wrong from this series : 1.The uniforms are too thight and they are still not looking like a military uniform,Patrick Stewart and the rest of TNG cast certainly hates them,just like the y hate the tight uniforms frm TNG season 1.A uniform like the ome from BSG,B5,Andromeda,Star Trek First Contact, Star Trek Beyond,Doom,The last ship will be liked more easely by the fans. 2.Changing the look the Klingons and the other aliens is wrong,because the fans loves them and the new klingons look way too different by their normal TOS look.They are looking completely stupid without the hair and with the new and lame,but complex costumes. 3.There is no balance between female and male characters ,for the first time in a Trek series .The strongly SJW message of the series is a completely stupid thing . 4.Having just one lead charater is wrong,because many of the fans don't like Burnham. 5.Changing the canon ,if this series is not a remake makes the fans to be have doubts about the new series. 6.The main characters are too nasty.The fans love a crew more friendly,like the one from Firefly not a crew full of stupid people. 7.The lack of utopian things,like modern cities,classic books,music ..it looks very weird for a Star Trek series. 8.The lack of the humor and the ccannibals are one of the most ridiculous things of the new series. 9.The background characters are as useful as a scarecrow in a battlefield they are just occupy the space of the screen without no reason 10.The Klingons as the main vilains,instead of Iconians,Cardassians or any other species unused by so many times is just ridiculous.
