This is pretty much my exact thoughts in the episode.

It also felt a bit more Star Trecky while keeping with the serial nature. I personally loved how season 1 wasn't but I know it turned off die hard fans who hated the fact klingons looked differently and who hated any change.

As an old Trek fan, I'm OK with changing the Klingons to make them look less human. it makes sense even if I think it's not an improvement over their Samurai-biker look of TNG.

Yeah I just never got the hate. It really isn't that important. I know reddit people were flipping out over it and saying they aren't watching a single episode after the premier.

Re: Star Trek (2017)

None of the tech/makeup/whatever stuff that's improved after the past 50 years bothers me at all. I really don't care at all that Discovery looks decades more advanced than the TOS Enterprise.

Why do people care about this stuff? It's just ignorant of reality.

Re: Star Trek (2017)

Curious about the budget for each episode. There is none of the typical hey look cgi on a tv show budget look

Shows always have huge budgets for first and last episodes because ppl don't remember.

Re: Star Trek (2017)

I am not totally sure where this is all going but I am in for the ride. Feels more Trek then the first season but still modern and not total single episode arcs.

Re: Star Trek (2017)

Mybe it is me being desperate for space sci fy since they cancelled Star Gate Universe but this show is really good. Amazing how they have blended old Star Trek style with the serial feel of season 1.

I really wasn't sure if
Spoiler:
was going to die or not so what was a potentially cliche scene worked imo.


Spoiler:


And as a little aside we find out a massive amound of the crew and Starfleet as a whole are not actually human. Makes perfect sense but I don't remember any other Star Trek showing this.

Re: Star Trek (2017)

Liked it a lot too, enjoyed seeing Pike's Number One again, 50 years or whatever after the character appeared briefly before.

In terms of currently airing sci fi, The Expanse is probably better overall, but Discovery isn't bad at all. Fingers crossed the live action Star Wars show is this good.

Re: Star Trek (2017)

I will have to give Expanse a watch then. Either way it is crazy how bad Star Trek washandled as a whole from the late 90's till the new movies, minus the third new one, that was awful. Seems like they should have been printing money.

Re: Star Trek (2017)

I am not totally sure what to think of that episode, a touch of a filler to bring most of the characters to one place and storyline. Dat cg budget though.

I for a split second thought it was

I don't understand what specifically your spoiler is in reference to.

Thought this episode was kinda meh. Hopefully we are done with the spore universe stuff for a bit.

When he got thrown into the giant ball of sun built out of the network I thought for a second the Doc was him. No need for spoiler since didn't actually happen.

I am an idiot and was drinking last night. No clue why I typed Pike not Lorca

Re: Star Trek (2017)

Total old school style episode with a tiny bit of moving the main story forward. Half way through I thought it was a crap episode but I liked it once it finished.

What the hell is the red angel?

Re: Star Trek (2017)

Holy hell that episode just turned this season up in a hurry. So much going on. I realize now what the throw back first minute was. Still a little lost need to find some cliffs.
