This Short Trek is not only inconsistent with Star Trek, it's inconsistent with Star Trek Discovery
7 December 2018 | by birdoprey5See all my reviews

While canon and continuity lapses between Discovery and the rest of the Trek universe are nothing new this Short Trek goes beyond and contradicts even Discovery's own prior canon. Without spoiling the Kelpians we see portrayed in The Brightest Star are nothing like we were told they were like. Even within this single 13 minute or so episode (not counting credits) they still couldn't stay consistent. Satu admits to "stealing" technology but nothing was stolen, it merely fell from an alien spacecraft. That isn't stealing technology. These are just two of many dozens of issues in another Short Trek. Not short enough, it seems.
