I finally got to see Star Trek: Discovery. I opted for a 7 day free trial of CBS All Access. I managed to make it through 4 episodes before I just couldn’t take it anymore.
I have seen every Star Trek series and every Star Trek movie. I suffered through Voyager (it had it’s moments) and Enterprise (it didn’t). Discovery is the worst Star Trek series ever made. I only gave it one badge because it is Star Trek. A few of my gripes.
– The CBS All Access pay for yet another streaming platform Bravo Sierra.
– The main character is a mutineer. A fracking MUTINEER. There is no way I will ever, EVER, trust her.
– The subtitles for the Klingons. It was cute for about 5 minutes, then it was annoying.
– Oh! Look at our ode the the original series! We have a tribble on the captains desk. Lame.
– The writing is just not good.
– I’m not a super-Trekker but it seems the basic timeline was just thrown out the window.
– It just doesn’t feel like Star Trek.
My ranking of Star Trek series. Interestingly it is also chronological?!
