Is this worth watching?

Postby Monroe » Thu Oct 12, 2017 1:06 am

In my mind the first two episode make a great story beginning and ending. Michael gets sent off to a penal world where she spends the rest of her life. Spock and co. never talk about her because she is the black sheep embarrassment of the family. These Klingons were mutated freaks who died when their ship went up. The Admiral who was in a hologram instead of paying attention is why it's not used again until DS9, etc.

Perfect.

Is it worth watching the rest of the story?
How many Minbari does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
None. They always surrender right before they finish the job and never tell you why.

I'm watching out of morbid curiosity.

I've heard it said that if you 1) Think of it as the JJ-verse, not the Prime universe 2) Think of it as being set a century or more after the JJ movies - the JJ Next Generation, pretty much - and 3) Think of the "Klingons" as a new species... then it's pretty watchable.

I'd give it a try if you can watch it without paying for it. See how you like it.

As per the 'Rumors' thread post by Graham:

"Now here's the speculation I have heard with regards to this. I will spoiler it. It's just about the biggest spoiler there could be for Discovery, if true, so be warned:

Spoiler:

And remember all those rumours we heard during production, that there will be some kind of cross-reality story with different versions of the characters? This is it."



This idea will give me something to hang onto, to be able to stomach the show as a whole. If it comes to pass, great. If it doesn't, then the same morbid curiosity I already have will
still buoy me through the waves of awfulness.

If we ever get to that point T'Pau, please let those of us who aren't yet interested know so we can catch up.
