Star Trek: Discovery

So, watched most of what was released … and I’ve gotta say, I don’t like it. The technology is way more advanced than it should be based on when it is set – about 10 years pre-TOS – and the Klingons, frankly, look terrible. Even worse, they mumble all of their lines – I couldn’t tell if it was due to the prosthetics or just the fact that they spoke entirely in Klingon and were thus incapable of speaking quickly. And that doesn’t even take into account the main character … put simply: she was a blithering idiot who consistently made the wrong decisions over and over and over.

The worst part about this was that they could have resolved probably ninety percent of my issues by simply setting the show post Voyager (to explain the insane tech that was far beyond what was capable in TOS) and then change the Klingons to some random unnamed alien species. Of course, if the main character was written as stupidly in my theoretical version, well … they’d still be in bad shape.

And forget about me paying for CBS’ steaming service to see if future episodes make up for this mess…
