Trivia

The announcement by CBS is interesting since that network originally rejected "Star Trek: The Original Series (1966)" in 1964 in favor of "Lost in Space (1965)." See more »

Goofs

With Michael being the adoptive sister of Spock, the series have many flashbacks to their childhood and upbringing on Vulcan. Spock's Vulcan half-brother, Sybok, does not appear nor is mention during these scenes. In Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, Spock says that he and Sybok grew up together. However, since it's never stated when Sybok joined Sarek's home - only that he did so following his mother's death - or when he was exiled from the family, it's not impossible Sybok moved in after Burnham, and left before she graduated (the two extremes of the flashbacks). Also, since Sybok was never mentioned before Star Trek V, it seems reasonable the family never spoke of him again after his estrangement. See more »

Propaganda ruins the show
16 March 2018 | by nagyilles-balazsSee all my reviews

Shame to see that nowadays everything is effected by the actual "social movement".

Star Trek alway been modern in this respect - woman senior officers and captains - , but never was pushing it always felt natural. In the end of the day Star Trek is about "to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations.", not about actual politics, even in the original had Chekov despite to the cold war. The main problem with these show is that this is not Star Trek, this is not a futuristic world, just a projection of the present dilemma of Hollywood to the Star Trek world.

What really terrible to see that every straigt white male ending up evil, or poisend with an animalistic manhood. In opposition, the woman and the gay characters are flowless, even when they are making questionable things its alway the 'right thing to do'. The thing what makes a show modern is compelex realist characters, not a SJW paradaise. There is nothing which challenges the characters personalitity, they are static and boring.

These things are a shame because the story is enjoyable and if it wouldn't set in Star Trek universe it won't feel this wrong. The visuals is great, the directing is fine (in an action movie way), the writing is ok (without the propaganda monologs).

A closing thought: if one compare this to 'The Expanse', it has similar problem with the 'perfection' of the woman characters, the fraglie male ones are much more intersting, bit they handeled it much well and it doesn't feel that pushy.

If it wasn't Star Trek and more balanced 'social side' it could be easily 7-8 show, this was is only a 6.

PS:sorry for my english, it not my mothertonge, and wrote this down quickly
