I joined these forums because of Picard, but I've been a Trekkie since the 90's. I've enjoyed evwry series except for the animated one, I couldn't get into that. What do older fans think of Discovery? Younger fans are encouraged to chime in too. I've watched Season 1 so far, saving Season 2 for when I finish Picard. Any word on what month Season 3 will begin? I love the first season. Couple non-spoiler things I want to adress. I love our main character. Second series with a female lead, and I don't mind her being a Marry Sue. She was raised by Vulcans, and she doesn't have a social life, so it's believable that she's multi-talented. Yeah, Spock's sister is out of nowhere, but so was his brother. Spock's not really one to opwn up about his personal life. As a Christian, I was worried about how the two gay characters would be handled. I don't like trendy stereotype characters being forced into a series, but if the producers or writers are just trying to be modernly inclusive, then let's see where it goes. I'm bad with names, so I'll call them the engineer and the doctor. I like how they are just portayed as members of the crew who you wouldn't know are gay unless they said as much or you saw them together. I have a close friend who is gay, and I consider him my adopted brother. You wouldn't know he is gay unless hw told you. I find the show's portrayal realistic. If some Christians find it too much, be proactive. Write a review tonget it out of your system, and watch a different show. See? Easy! OK, on to other stuff. What thw fudge happened to the Klingons? Seriously, what the fudge? Does anyone mind the "visual reboot?" For hardcore Trekkies, how does this show line up with franchise continuity? I'm curious what the super Trekkies have to say here. That's all for now. Looking forward to Season 2! P.S. I don't mind season spoilers, but please don't spoil individual episodes for Season 2. Thanks!
