Synopsis:
Welcome to "Star Trek: Discovery" Series One, an odyssey that unfolds a decade before the era of 'Star Trek: The Original Series'. Sonequa Martin-Green stars as Michael Burnham, formerly one of Starfleet's most respected first officers - and now its first mutineer. A human raised as a Vulcan, Burnham learned early that "all life is born from chaos". Her defiance of a direct order resulted in an all-out war with the Klingon Empire, and she was sentenced to life in prison - until Captain Gabriel Lorca (Jason Isaacs) recruits her aboard the U.S.S. Discovery.
Joining her on this dramatic, epic journey are First Officer Saru (Doug Jones), Chief of Security Ash Tyler (Shazad Latif), Chief Engineer Paul Stamets (Anthony Rapp), and Cadet Sylvia Tilly (Mary Wiseman). Together, their powers of logic, science and compassion will meld on their quest for victory, survival and ultimately, peace in the universe.

Not great but almost as bad as some say - Star Trek: Discovery: Series 1 review by DB

Spoiler Alert
28/12/2018

First of all the good; the show , imo, looks great - the sets and special effects are top notch. Umm , I cant think of anything else ...

The weaknesses all stem from the writing. Historically, as best as I can recall , you would get a Star Trek series that, if it had 20 episodes , would offer up 21-22 stories ; one or two stories that lasted a season but otherwise one story per episode . Not so in this case, essentially you have one story told over 15 episodes, if I was quicker on the uptake I would have taken that as my first indication that the writing was going to be weak - that was only confirmed by the sudden switch over into the 'alternate universe' trope a desperate writing move that most programs don't reach until they are midway through season 4 or something not halfway through season 1. None of the main characters are particularly engaging , not as appallingly misjudged as some of the characters in Star Wars (Ep 1,2,3) that come to mind but that is hardly a complement. If you are a fan of the genre and a bit of a completest then watch the series and come to your own conclusion but unless they put some serious effort into improving the writing I won't be coming back for seconds.

Not as good as other Star Treks - Star Trek: Discovery: Series 1 review by MD

Spoiler Alert
21/01/2019

I have always been a Star Trek fan and enjoyed the various versions of it over a long period of time. This particular series seems a little disappointing. There is plenty of action, rather too much for my liking. A little frantic. The humour and subtlety of earlier series is lacking. And the Klingons look like bank robbers in masks. They have completely lost their horrible appeal from before. Oh well, perhaps I will get used it. I have seen only 2 episodes so far.
