    One of the best things about this series is that it features an ongoing story arc. It’s a slow burn. You don’t realize what they’re building at first with it. Then it hits you exactly what they’re doing, and it bowls you over. I was skeptical of having to pay to watch any Trek show, but by the end of season 1 you’ll be glad you did. It brings back several classic Trek tropes and also features some mind-boggling plot twists.
  • Fantastic!

    I particularly liked the way they they developed the Klingons. They were a whole lot more sinister than in previous series.
  • Inconsistent and Tactless

    I've watched all the trek movies and TV series shows many times over the last 30 years and this just isn't Trek. I actually really tried to buy into it, but there were just too many inconsistencies and conflicts with existing canon. For those who say we should get over that and move on, I say then what's the point of calling it Trek? If they wanted to make something else, they should have called it something else. The point of having new Trek stories to watch is to continue the larger story in a way that fits and is consistent with the stories that have been told so far. This doesn't do that. Also, Trek has always been good about presenting current social issues in the context of good stories in ways that are thought provoking, but which are family friendly, unoffensive, and don't get in the way of the story. This show is none of that. Rather, many the episodes feel like the writers' had some foul language and controversial ideas they wanted to use and then to tried to figure out how to write a story to put them in. Crass, offensive, and no sense of tact whatsoever. Garbage.
  • It's nothing more than bad soap opera

    I don’t see how this show can be considered 'Star Trek' anything/. I started watching Star Trek as a teenager in the '60s and have watched all the series since then. I've watched season 1 and was disappointed. Even more so in season 2. It's a very bad soap opera that had promise through the first couple of episodes, but went down hill quickly. The writing is terrible. The main character is an over emotional tear factory that you end up hoping gets written out of the show. There are a lot of other good characters, but the writing and plot does not leverage them very well. My opinion - this is the worst of the entire Star Trek universe, including all of the movies as well as the cartoon TV shows.

    Take it for what it is. It’s current Star Trek with non Star -Trek twists and turns. One review said Gene would turn over on his grave...well that’s a good thing cause the series needs to grow and this is a great one to get it going. Enjoy it. It’s well written and fun!
  • Not Star Trek

    This series should have some other name. This is NOT Star Trek. So disappointing. They are trying to rewrite everything. They are trying to discredit every other Star Trek series and change every storyline asking the way. Waste. Of. Time and money. Got 4 episodes into this, and couldn’t watch it any further.
  • One of the best Star Trek Series!!!

    I’m digging it. Lots of folks are geeking out over this and over analyzing it and that’s fine. To each their own. I feel that this was a solid step in the right direction to revive this franchise and I’m extremely happy to see it back.
