Star Trek: Discovery - first thoughts

September 26th, 2017 (02:04 am)

Not much to say, other than that I enjoyed it, wouldn't have started the episode with the Klingons (who are in danger of becoming completely grotesque in design, and there has been some Game of Thrones bleed into their conceptualization) but liked the Burnham/Georgiou desert walk and the depiction of their relationship in general; I have no problem at all with the inclusion of Sarek; and the Federation politics went some way towards confronting the recognized problems of the Star Trek format. Sonequa Martin-Green is a strong screen presence and there should be no problem following her through what at the moment is on the verge of being a space version of Porridge ("Michael Burnham. You have been found guilty... You are a habitual insubordinate with a fondness for Vulcan neck pinches...") I'll be back in a way I couldn't say I was for Voyager or indeed Deep Space Nine. (Enterprise escaped my mind.)
