I’m enjoying Star Trek Discovery for what it is right now, an entertaining drama set in the Star Trek universe. I’m not overly focused any more on the continuity issues the show has or even the mean vibe that I get off some of it. People who are enraged over the departure from traditional Trek are probably giving themselves blood pressure issues and I don’t really care for it. On the flip side the people who are claiming this is the greatest show ever to grace television and easily the best Star Trek series are a little too much for me as well.
Hate it or love it it’s completely up to you but I think it probably falls within the middle ground for me. It’s very watchable but I think they’ve made some mistakes and I’m not a fan of some of the aesthetic decisions, but it’s not the worst thing I’ve ever seen and Star Trek needs to be an evolving beast to stay relevant. A lot of the pro and con arguments are way too extreme and I think a little perspective is needed.
I am enjoying having new characters to play with though and that’s a very good thing.
