Star Trek returns with streaming series

Recommended Posts

I'm a huge Star Trek fan (TNG, DS9 and VOY).  While I HATE the fact this is another prequel (I want to see what happens AFTER DS9 and VOY)...  I still thought the Discovery premiere was better than I expected.  I'm ready to see next week's episode to see the new cast and where this all goes.  I love the lead (Michael) and I like Saru (?).  I really didn't take to Michelle Yeoh's captain - she reminds me of the stiff Genevieve Bujold, the first Janeway before Mulgrew took over.  Seemed robotic and unbelievable.  I'm hopeful that was her last episode...

This show is SO good.  The last two episodes have been fantastic.  They killed the captain, fixed the Klingon makeup, and have taken a few pages out of Battlestar Galactica's book... so good.

LOL! It's cursed.

 

Season 1 was okay with a great cast, but a pale shadow of what it could've been. There was a lot of mediocre network TV episodic stuff. And they wasted no time pushing out the huge talents Fuller had hired (Nicholas Meyer, etc.) after the first couple episodes, and those two replacement showrunners weren't very good - and now apparently PR nightmares.

 

For all his eccentricities and recklessness with budget they should've left Fuller alone. Maybe he'd have flown the coop anyway, but we'll never know - and the incredible writers and directors he had in place were far above anything that aired in Season 1. Further, Alex Kurtzman is a massive hack. I guess I'll keep watching it out of my love for the franchise and cast, but after the silly finale bringing in the Enterprise I am not expecting a lot.

I thought and said the same thing when I read the news earlier this morning (and I'm not even a fan of ST).

 

Frankly, I'm not surprised Harberts and Berg turned out to be such lousy show runners, since I've never liked any of the stuff they've penned for various shows.

Actually, why are names like Kurtzman, Orci, Harberts and Berg still running around at all? The former two have bounced from show to show leaving a path of destruction, while the latter two probably should have been banned from TV production after their involvement in Shonda Rhimes' massive flop Off the Map.
