Noticeably, you've two types of reviewer here, the 1/10 anti-Discovery trolls who spam all review sites with their "It's not James T Kirk" nonsense. (My response to these haters is 'why waste your time spamming the net with your drivel? Just DON'T watch it then!'. The other reviews tend to be true-Trek fans giving 10/10 reviews to counterbalance the haters' reviews.
To actually review the series, I would start by saying that it IS taking Star Trek in a different direction, but in one that it needed to go. Keeping the franchise alive means evolving, and the addition of Trek Shorts is part of that process. These 15minute shorts allow us a glimpse into other aspects of the characters' lives or the ship itself (Discovery). It's great to have 'filler' whilst we wait for another exciting series (season 2) and with news of new Star Trek series in production (with Sir Patrick himself) and even an animated comedy - I'm thrilled to see the franchise evolve like the Marvel world or DC world has in recent years.
The only downsides to these shorts (so far) is their length (I'm just hungry for more!) and that they feel (due to their length) a little 'rushed' in moving the storylines forward. Otherwise, looking forward to this becoming a regular intra-season feature!
