Trivia

During a question-and-answer session at ComicCon in 2016, then-showrunner Bryan Fuller said that the inspirations for centering the show around a female lead and a character of color were the actress Nichelle Nichols (who played Lieutenant Uhura, the only black character and the only woman in the main cast of the original series) and the astronaut Mae Jemison, the first African American woman in space. Sonequa Martin-Green, the actress who was eventually cast as this character (then said to be called Lieutenant Commander Rainsford) is the first black actress to be the lead in a Star Trek series. Martin-Green also has in common with Mae Jemison that both women were born in Alabama: Jemison in Decatur and Martin-Green in Russelville. See more »

Goofs

In the TNG episode, "Homeward," Captain Picard believed saving a race whose planet was doomed but had not yet made interstellar contact would violate the Prime Directive.

In the opening of this episode they save a doomed race but no mention is made of the Prime Directive. See more »

Is it 1984? Is this a bad dream? Is this Star Trek in a really horrible parallel universe?
5 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

Is it just me, or do the Klingons look almost exactly like the aliens from the 1984 flick "The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension"? LOL The show has some eye candy for sure and looks expensive. It has grit and action and the acting isn't terrible... It doesn't stink entirely... Just mostly.

That having been said, it's dull, dark (literally dark... frickin' turn the lights on so I can see something), too preachy, too whiny and moody, and does NOT feel at all like Star Trek. It's just not any fun. There's not really a single character that I like or am intrigued by (except for the captain, a little bit) and neither the ship nor the universe they live in looks like anyplace I'd want to explore... I've watched each episode so far, and keep hoping it will get better, but all I'm left with is meh. Don't get me wrong, I like elements of it, but it's just missing so much. So far, it's pretty forgettable and I am so disappointed to have to conclude that about a Star Trek series. Maybe, hopefully, it will improve. Right now, I'm pretty much out of it.

Oh, and speaking of exploring... what the heck is the title "Discovery" supposed to mean? There's no discovering in this Star Trek. I know it's the name of the ship, so what... This show is the opposite of Star Trek. It's like they are trying to dismantle everything great about the franchise.

I'm not a total purist. I like new stuff and I can get along with changes (even reboots), if they're good... These aren't. I would much rather have seen a series set post Voyager. Sick of all these stupid prequels and trying to make everything so hyper politically correct and shove this garbage down our throats. I doubt the show will make it for long. It will likely be canceled in a couple of years (and that's being optimistic) unless they make some major changes.

Has anyone noticed that the theme song is pretty dull, but also the video with it does not make sense. The drawings show elements from the original series technology; yet everything in this show surpasses that technology. It all feels so disconnected. The men in the show are whiny wimps. Everyone is always arguing with each other and fighting. The Klingons and their noticeably rubber masks and feather halloween costumes always babbling and I have to read stupid subtitles for half the episode. What the heck is this junk? Sorry, but Buckaroo Bonzai was more fun to watch and the alien masks were better. ;) hehe
