To be honest, I didn't know what to think. Now that I've seen the entire first season, it was a compelling aspect. The Voq/Ash Tyler, I think, was one of the most relevant characters. He was allegorical in two ways. Today's coming to terms with transgenderism and what that means and also the conflicted duality of the Muslim culture and religion in western society. Again, his was the most human story, in my view, told. His journey was not unlike Spock's in that regard. The one BIG problem I have with the season one wrap up was it's b*llschtick ending to the Klingon war that was pure deus ex machina tripe. On the plus side, Clint Howard got Cadet Tilly high and Commander Burnham's speech at the end was pure cheese reminiscent of Capt. James T. Kirk himself. All-in-all, season one was a brilliant success and moves past Enterprise, The Animated Series and Voyager on my Trek Series in order of greatness list (currently: 1- Star Trek: TOS, 2- DS9, 3- TNG, 4- Discovery, 5- VOY 6- TAS and 7- ENT).
