Critic Reviews for Star Trek: Discovery: Chapters 1 & 2

But, despite a traditionally Trekkian diverse cast that includes the first black, female lead in a Star Trek show, and many elements that Trek fans expect in their franchise, there's not much about Star Trek Discovery to lure the much needed new fans.

December 11, 2017 | Full Review…

Going into the second half of its season, Discovery has kinks to work out, but it's laid the all-important groundwork for a rich and tight-knit ensemble.

It feels of a piece with the show's apparent mission: to boldly disrupt - and hopefully re-energise - all the Trek lore that has gone before.

November 14, 2017 | Full Review…

Granted, this is clumsy sometimes, but the franchise's optimistic core is why people love it.

The original series and those that followed didn't have the time or money to overthink themselves; they had to create a viable visual fiction every week on a budget equivalent to a few seconds of a contemporary commercial.

October 23, 2017 | Rating: 4/10 | Full Review…

Discovery feels like it's adrift between the adventure-of-the-week format of its network-TV predecessors and the kind of complex serial favored by cable and streaming. It has the trappings of serious pay-TV drama... But they're mostly superficial.
