This is not only NOT STAR TREK, Its not even a good sci-fi show. Terrible writing, as expected of something involving Alex Kurtzman and the Bad Robot alumni. God awful story written by people who clearly have no idea or regard for what Star Trek really is. Terrible acting and stiff wooden main characters, The lead character, Burnham, being not only completely unlikable, but one of, if not the biggest Mary-Sue in modern Sci-fi with a matching lack of personality, Secondary characters being little more than cardboard cutouts with no personality or characteristics, complete bastardization of popular and iconic aliens (Those are NOT in any way Klingons), nearly every scene severely lacking light, and to top it all off, The biggest slap in the face to Trek Canon the franchise has ever seen. I watched 13 episodes of this abomination before I finally got angry enough to quit. This is not Star Trek. It's a poorly written, generic mess of a Sci-fi show with a Star Trek paint job. and the vast majority of the fanbase knows this, which is why it's failing faster than a Special Ed kid in honors classes. STD needs to be cancelled and stricken from canon, and Kurtzman and all the writers, fired.

Huge production values, fun to watch just for eye candy. Otherwise, this Star Trek has been a let down. This is definitely fantasy, little understanding of science. "What if"s that make scifi so amazing are also mostly absent. Instead Discovery is futuristic action drama and doesn't pull it off very well. Also, it seems like there weren't notes from anyone who watched previous Treks. I hope for a return to what we loved about Trek, a bit more science and dreams of what could be.

This version of Star Trek is more advanced, plays upon the previous versions history and I've already concluded the ending season, the Federation (after it's been cleaned up of Romulan subversives and the Klingons neutered) becomes Q. In the meanwhile time travel is played around with much more, but we already know that. Great series so far.
