Still, Discovery ends its first season having earned the Star Trek prefix in its title. The show feels much as it did after its season premiere - as a series with more potential than proof - but also one with nigh-limitless, intriguing possibilities ahead
And yet, the second half has shown glimmers of potential, with its ensemble settling into a more confident rapport and delving into deeper thematic material.
Star Trek doesn't leave any gaps. Nor, I expect, will it. We will see the aliens, see the distant worlds. Nothing will be figurative, nothing will be implied, there will be no endless, unseen mystery about which to thrill.
So far, Star Trek: Discovery is quite good. It's gorgeously executed, thrilling to watch, and full of heart. But it's also a show that clearly pushing against the boundaries of what Star Trek is supposed to be.
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.
