In the cover story about Star Trek: Discovery that was published in the August 4, 2017, issue of Entertainment Weekly, journalist James Hibberd recounted a moment on the set when Jason Isaacs (playing Captain Gabriel Lorca) ad-libbed the phrase "for God's sakes!" as a new ending to a line. Kirsten Beyer, who wrote the episode, explained to Isaacs that he couldn't insert "for God's sakes" into his dialogue because one of the rules that Gene Roddenberry set for the universe he created states that in his vision of the future in which all "Star Trek" media is set, religion--and therefore all conceptions of "God"--no longer exist. Isaac's sarcastic retort to Beyer was, "how about 'for fuck's sake'? Can I say that?" And Beyer's response was, "You can say that before you can say 'God.'" However, in the 2009 Star Trek reboot, Karl Urban (as Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy), expresses his frustration by swearing, "good God, man!" and "my God, man!" It also does not explain the twist at the end of the original series show titled "Bread and Circuses". See more »
Although Michael Burnham is often referred to as a mutineer, the crew of the USS Shenzhou didn't knowingly disobey the captain's orders, nor were they imprisoned for being mutineers, so there was no mutiny as such. Michael was simply, individually, insubordinate to her superior officer. See more »
I remember watching the first TOS episodes as a young boy. I loved them, just because I loved every movie or TV series with star ships in it. Later when I was a teen TNG came out and it was the first time I got aware of that Star Trek series are not just random episodes of sci-fi fun but an own universe with own physics rules, different alien races and complex interstellar political issues. With DS9 they deepened the understanding of that universe and all it's rules and made it step by step even more complex and interesting.
And oh boy there was a lot to learn about that universe. There was the religion like believe of the Klingons in their greatest warrior Kahless, The Vulcan society which was completely based on logic, There were ship classes for every species with detailed specifications of their technology and a complete history of the human race to the stars starting with the invention of the warp drive by Zefram Cochrane. Each alien race had their unique design for their whole technology, architecture and cloth which fitted even when the different series were hundreds of years apart.
Sure there were several plot holes which they had to fix and explain in ENT. What they did pretty well. At that point a very delicate web was knitted to fit all the bits and pieces together. A complex universe which was fully explained to play with for future series authors.
So we all looked forward to a great new show in that universe. Would it be about a more modern ship two centuries after the Enterprise D? Maybe a short series about the Star Fleet academy? Could have even been one completely out of the view of Vulcans or Klingons or about the Eugenic Wars. The Star Trek universe is a giant sandbox full of things to play with for an author.
So what did we get then with STD? SJW nonsense, unfitting ship designs, unfitting race looks, unfitting star trek officer behavior, unfitting technology in that time-line. Unfitting control panels, unfitting uniforms - basically if there would not be the word Klingons" mentioned now and then you would not even be aware that this story plays somehow in the Star Trek universe.
STD trashed 60 years of story development and then puked a big pile of SJW idiocy on it, stirred it up with some standard factory CGI and feed it to the public.
Everyone involved in the making of Star Treck Discovery should be deeply ashamed for failing completely as authors, set designers, producers and directors. There was basically no way to mess it up more then they did.
