Star Trek Discovery: Season Two – Critique


I have been a Star Trek fan for lots of years. I can honestly say that Discovery is one particular of my favourite series in the franchise.

One particular of the criticisms I have heard is that Discovery is very good science fiction but does not really feel like Star Trek. I believed the initially season did a very good job of digging into Star Trek history, the second season went even additional.

One particular of the important components of this season is Section 31, an organization initially introduced in Deep Space Nine. Additional than that, the Starship Enterprise seems and with it a quantity of familiar characters.

At the finish of final season, the Discovery was with out a captain. Following getting contacted by the Enterprise, they obtain Christopher Pike as their short-term captain. Pike was the captain of the Enterprise just before James Kirk and was the captain in the pilate for the original series.

They start a quest to uncover the which means behind a quantity of indicators in space. This quest ultimately contains a search for Spock, who had gone missing. The principal character of Discovery is Michael Burnham, who as a young girl was adopted by Spock’s family members.

This introduces the notion of the Red Angel, a time traveller who is attempting to quit the destruction of all life in the galaxy. This mystery has close ties to Michael and her previous.

I ought to admit that I loved the way they utilised Pike, Spock and the Enterprise. Not just for nostalgic motives, but simply because the characters have been utilised to properly. I will say that I in fact enjoyed this updated version of the Enterprise than what we got in the final 3 motion pictures (and I believed they have been quite very good). Spock is such a familiar character and but he was presented in a fresh way. Some new Star Trek series will quickly be beginning and I want a Pike-led Enterprise series was one particular of them.
