Star Trek: Discovery

I just watched the two-hour opener for the new Star Trek series, and enjoyed it even more than I thought I would. Sure, there’s something a bit weird about Star Trek being so war-focused, but what I was presented with was an incredibly interesting new setup, and I was actually shocked by the way the 2nd episode ended — and then super excited by what I saw in the preview of what the season is going to look like. The show looks great, and the new main character is a big draw for me (and I was a bit shocked too by the early exit of another key character). As I wrote in my post about The Orville, I’ve watched everything Star Trek, and so you could say I’m a pretty big fan of the series in general, and to me this feels like a fresh and exciting new take on the franchise. I like the latest movies fine, but I’m much more interested in watching this series and seeing where it’s going to go.
