What great cost to produce a sack of awfulness
23 October 2017 | by bonewisherSee all my reviews

Generations of viewers have lived in the realm of Star Trek to find their own passion in how to become a true Trekkie. We can wonder if any of the producers are a fraction of that concept considering the present episode and the series in total.

I've tried my hardest to accept the fresh reboot of Star Trek Discovery. Now after six episodes there are too much of everything but the spirit of Star Trek. This is something else. Focus is not about the adventure nor the characters and absolutely not about the storytelling. This is purely about greed and leach the cult of Star Trek to get an extra buck or two. This will fail and I personally hope the 2nd season won't arrive to save the next generation of Trekkies the pain.

This episode proves the fact. Stop this now and spend the rest of the budget on a comedy show or some food TV.
