The Emperor's tactics on Kronos really demonstrated some of the similarities to Lorca. I was wrong. While hardcore Trekkies may never see the value of the series (and that’s fine - we don’t all have to like the same thing), Discovery found its audience mostly in people who had never watched a Star Trek TV show before in their lives.
On multiple occasions, she has asserted that she started the war and therefore she must end it. The only way to defeat fear is to tell it 'No'. But this is the Terran Emperor we're talking about, so the differences are made abundantly clear too – first in Philippa's quick and ruthless shutdown of any words or actions that humanise their enemy (Qo'nos is not the Klingon homeworld, it's a planet) and second in Michael's distrust in her captain's motives. I am just a little weirded out that the crew just accepted that the long-thought-dead Georgiou was in command of Discovery especially since many of the officers (like Detmers) were at the Battle of the Binary Stars where she was killed. The general replied,'You will know Fear because it speaks very fast and it speaks very loud...' 'If that is how Fear acts, recognizing it is easy.' She's obviously a woman of talents. His role as Saru in Discovery is no different, but the industry is finally sitting up a noticing how much work goes into playing a character like this and his performance as the mild-mannered yet highly intelligent Kelpien is far from the one-dimensional Star Trek aliens of the past. Shazad Latif could be praised simply for playing two characters on the show (Voq and Tyler) and keeping it a secret until the big reveal, but he does so much more than that.
The final episode of Star Trek: Discovery's first season opens with the Federation on the eve of battle with the Klingons – not too dissimilar to how the series opened, really. Star Trek Discovery season 1 review: "Discovery works for today’s audience in a way Kirk and co never would" By Lauren O'Callaghan 12 February 2018 Comments Unlike previous Treks, the action centres on First Officer Michael Burnham (although she doesn’t remain First Officer for long) who, while human, was raised Vulcan by Spock’s parents. Culber's posthumous medal was endearing, and Amanda's chat with Burnham was a powerful moment of insight for her. I wanted to protect them from war, from the enemy. On Star Trek: Discovery Season 1 Episode 4, Burnham sets out to solve the tardigrade while Voq and L'Rell adapt to their Klingon followers' fickleness. Burnham joins the crew of the Discovery under the leadership of Captain Lorca who is desperate to make a new form of transport work to give the Federation the edge in a war they are clearly losing, all the while Klingons Voq and L’Rell attempt to unite the 24 great Klingon Houses under one rule. Is this new Trek your cup of tea, Earl Grey, hot?
It was with great trepidation that I sat down to watch Star Trek: Discovery Season 1 Episode 15. From Burnham’s mutiny and the development of the DASH drive, to getting lost in Terran space and Lorca’s true identity, it really is incredible how much is packed into the first season of Discovery and while it can sometimes feel a little over-stuffed (especially towards the end), almost every episode is standout television. What does the appearance of the Enterprise mean for Burnham and Saru?
Instead, we join the ship as the ultimate persona non grata, rankless and shouldering the blame for the entire war. Does Tilly have to leave the crew to do her Command Training?
Lorca only gets to be the baddie/true Terran for one full episode before being killed off, the Tyler/Voq storyline still doesn’t feel like it ever got it’s well-deserved payoff, and even minor characters - such as Mudd, who made some of the best moments from the beginning of the series - were never heard of again. The series hasn't forgotten its roots just yet.
While Discovery started off at a gentle trot (Burnham didn’t even make it onto the USS Discovery until episode 3 and the long promised Mirror Universe plot made its debut in the mid-season finale), by the time we got to the end of the season, everything had gone a bit Game of Thrones season 6 with characters teleporting all over the place and major deaths getting little reaction time. Ultimately, as an episode, there were moments of brilliance. Expertly combining the rich and varied world of Star Trek and modern audience’s love of fan theories and twists, Discovery’s plot keeps you glued to the screen from episode-to-episode, despite a few annoying plot holes which crop up from time to time. "We will not take shortcuts on the path to righteousness," Michael vows as she and the crew of the Discovery promise to uphold Starfleet's mission to continue exploring the galaxy and be the torchbearers that light the way rather than repeat the "bleak times" of war. What exactly does Stamets get to do now that he's no longer the spore drive interface? A year ago, I stood alone. From my youth on Vulcan, I was raised to believe that service was my purpose. Diana Keng is a staff writer for TV Fanatic. Let's look at the war first.
Please? Yeah, so I can probably be forgiven for worrying that this was going to be incredibly terrible. Related: Get CBS All Access for Hit Shows on Demand, Exclusive Originals & Live TV! Wow, it was just that simple. route on more than one occasion. You can't fault the intentions, though, and we've seen Michael wrestle with the lines between humanity, compassion, fear and logic often enough that her response here feels earned and, crucially, true to her character too. My crew... gone. Even her address to Starfleet smacks of "happily ever after" as it visually echoes her speech to the panel that court-martialed her at the end of Star Trek: Discovery Season 1 Episode 2.
