That's my point. Hey, I would've started Discovery in the 32nd century and taken it from there. I'd ban time travel stories and prequels for at least 5 years. You can't expect me to not be curious though. I don't need to see Klingons per se. However, if you told me the Klingons all got a genetic disease and died out as Kronos was overtaken by self-aware Tribble warlords....I'd nerd tf out and analyze it for no fewer than 3 hours.
