It is well handled: we see that these men have a strong and loving relationship and there is a deep emotional hit later when one of them is harmed. I guess this minimises production expenditure on location shoots, but it severely limits the sense of adventure and discovery. Some people think that sci-fi fans will swallow any old rubbish. The pilot attracted good reviews - more than the full season deserves - in part simply from the pleasure of seeing a new Star Trek series on screen. It came as a relief that the writers and producers listened to fans and crafted a much improved second season.
The first season of Star Trek Discovery I can only describe as awful. Basically, the whole thing is a politically correct propaganda show. Star Trek, one of the most iconic and influential global television franchises, returns 50 years after it first premiered, with Star Trek: Discovery. It feels like a missed opportunity to bring this much-loved franchise up to date. She can't even say simple lines correctly her intonation is wrong and the wrong words are stressed. A shame that her Vulcan upbringing doesn't come into the story so much in the season's later episodes.
In short not a dismal addition to the Trekkie universe but one that has a long way to go to redeem itself too. Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice is the clearest example. Here again there is a mixed bag: some beautiful work with the 'mycelia' and the general space scenes are pretty, though it all seems a bit static. . There have been other recent geek favourites which have disappointed, even though they have had big budgets and big names involved.
Overall just a shame: presumably a good chunk of the acting budget was spent on this headline name, and she's easily the worst actor in the show. A serious design mis-step here. Like the vacuum of space it was sucked dry of the warmth and sense of hope and optimism found in the wonderful 1990's series. Her character here is supposed to have a Malaysian accent we know this because at one point she explains that she was born in Langkawi - that's an island in Malaysia but Malaysian people don't maul English like this. Fans are going to be, at least, annoyed.
She successfully portrays an upright, capable but insubordinate character through the season's full story arc, and it's all plausible. The uniforms also look more up-to-date. Meanwhile all initial reviews are based on the pilot episodes 1 and 2 combined. A series like Star Trek wouldn't be complete without its special effects. I believe the root cause of these problems is that studios put key people in charge, as producers or directors or screen writers or casting directors, who are just not that into the source material. Because the core mantra of this alternate human race is - listen to this - preserving their own kind basically, they made an episode about just how bad a racist universe might be.
The bridge and ship interiors are too sparse - Engineering lacks any sense of powerful forces being held in check by advanced machinery. The series will feature a new ship, new characters and new missions, while embracing the same ideology and hope for the future that inspired a generation of dreamers and doers. Description Imdb: Star Trek: Discovery - S01E08 2017 Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum The U. Even a low-budget sci-fi show like Killjoys excellent if you haven't seen it yet has more planets than this. That is patronising and it is a mistake, especially in this era of vast viewing choice. Non-fans are likely to give up on this before the end of the season, and I can't really blame them. Everyone is an independent and capable woman.
The idea of these beings as the galaxy's fiercest warriors is preposterous. Watch The Orville instead, it's 100 times better and has none of this political crap in it. Discovery is tasked with a high priority mission to the planet Pahvo and learn the science behind the Klingons' cloaking technology. Star Trek: Discovery was - you would hope - aiming for that target. Its upbeat vibe, well timed humour and its sense of optimism and thoughtful approach make it addictive viewing. The full 15-episode Season 1 is available on Netflix here in Europe.
If this is an intended effect then it's extremely badly portrayed. Episode 10 is about a parallel universe in which - although the human race rules over everything, it's painted as an evil 'Terran Empire' and villified to the max. Our movies and show should be politics free. That said, the hangover from season one remains and its uncomfortably starchy militaristic vibe, has not completely dissipated. The positive audience reaction to Star Wars: The Force Awakens is a fine example. There are some great ideas lurking in this, but it also has some serious issues: bad pacing, terrible acting in parts, and some obvious signs of a limited budget.
