Star Trek Discovery: Boldly Representing Women Of Color

1/6Romulus

There were reports that series co-creator Bryan Fuller, who ultimately left the project over creative disagreements as well as scheduling conflicts with his Starz series American Gods, wanted Discovery to be darker, more openly political, and more aggressively serialized than the version that debuted tonight with back-to-back episodes.

CBS said the subscriber boost came amid the best ever month and week for sign-ups on All Access amid the beginning of the National Football League season, the finale for "Big Brother" and the show's corresponding live feeds.

While we don't hear Starfleet's famed non-interference policy mentioned in so many words, a precursor for the frequent series plot point is mentioned by Burnham as "General Order 1", i.e.

Returning to the time of the original series and positioning Star Trek Discovery as a prequel series invites comparisons to the first iteration of Star Trek.

In other words, they hope that Discovery will keep the Star Trek TV brand living long and prospering.

"Her time on Vulcan causes her to make several choices in our first episode, choices that will really have aftershocks throughout the entire series", Harberts said. Officer Burnham is introduced as a human raised by Sarek (James Frain). As you may have heard, Star Trek: Discovery is also available to stream on Netflix but not for everybody. Tonally, Discovery seems to land between the previous TV series and the more recent movies-there's technobabble and diplomacy (however poorly said diplomacy goes), but there's also a whole lot of money thrown at pretty CGI.

We'll share numerous responses we got, but we want to know what you think too. Whether things take a different course over the next 13 episodes remains to be seen, although by all accounts the war with the Klingons will dominate this first season. The series begins not with Starfleet, but with the Klingon leader T'Kuvma (Chris Obi), who warns his comrades of the lurking threat of Federation outsiders.

The USS Discovery, in the form of a light effect, flies over NY.

Bormanis (who is not with Star Trek anymore in an official capacity, but does write for The Orville) also gives Discovery's take on Star Trek terminology and technology a passing grade. Why does Discovery look more like it's come from the J.J. Abrams Trek films than the classic continuity? In "The Vulcan Hello" and "Battle at the Binary Stars", Discovery sets up an ambitious season-long arc focused on the reignition of tensions between the United Federation of Planets and the Klingon empire after almost a century of tense isolationism.
