I thought Ash's arc in the first season was compelling and felt it resolved nicely at the conclusion of that season. He was forced into season two when he didn't need to be and because of that, his character just didn't work, in my opinion. Plus I don't think Shazaad is that good of an actor. The show really needs to carve out its own path and shouldn't have to clean up the mess Discovery left behind. HOWEVER, I would very much like to see, at some point down the line, how the Kelpians are fairing.
