Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

That's not a surprise though.

To fit in with the TOS timeline he would have to go back to the Enterprise.

This season has been outstanding so far.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

Yeah I think he has been great and it is a shame in a way he wasn't introduced as another unknown random Starfleet Captain so he could stay without disrupting canon.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

The very last ever episode has now come to an end and wow they must have blown a hell of a budget on it.

It's a shame really I felt like it was just starting to warm up but I don't think there is anywhere to go from this one for a season 4 not that season 4 is mentioned I think they pretty much ended the show on this final.

Shame about the new star trek movie being binned as well

I think you have got your wires crossed somewhere dude because that was the finale to season 2 and it has been renewed for a 3rd season so there is definitely going to be another 13 eps or so.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

Not only is there to be a season 3, there is also a Section 31 spin off show after season 3.

The season 2 finale was really good and I loved what they did with it.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

Absolutely loved it, but to be honest I’d much rather be aboard Enterprise than Discovery next season.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

I wonder how they will reconcile Season 3 (where Discovery has gone) with the Section 31 series (which will be filmed after Season 3) considering Captain Georgiou is on the Discovery?

I have a feeling that by the end of Season 3, The Discovery or at least a few crew members will be back in their correct time.

Then again the Section 31 show is currently at story writing phase and so far has not actually been picked up for a full season order.

I loved the finale though.

Thats good, setting the show in the 33rd Century means they have total freedom on who and what they encounter and don't have to fit in with historical canon.

I don't understand how that is going to work though, surely they are going to be at a massive technological disadvantage with everything they come across?
When I saw how it ended I was hoping they were doing a reboot, losing Discovery in the future and the next season was going to be all about the Enterprise with Pike et al. This season of Discovery hasn't done anything for me at all. It is too unrealistically Burnham-focused and the other characters are just hollow annoyances. It did my nut in that no matter how pressed for time they were and how dire the situation, we can always take a timeout for a two minute gay drama. I laughed hysterically at 20:00 in episode 13.
The battle scene in the finale was very impressive but there were many things which killed my realism factor. If you know the universe is about to end and everything hangs in the balance wtf does the head of Klingon empire only bring one ship and not the entire fleet and why didn't they tell Starfleet so Starfleet could send some ships? It doesn't make sense that two starships could hold off against all those Section 31 ships for so long and I would like to have seen more ships involved to make it more realistic.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

Only for a short while. With the crew they have am sure they could easily upgrade the systems.

If there was ever to be a spin off it would be very short lived due to the fate of Pike. However I think the Enterprise and it's crew have been explored enough. As good as Anson Mount was in the role.

Gay drama? Starfleet officers are people too, and have personal lives. Why shouldn't a gay couple feature. Other Trek series have always featured the personal and love life's of the crew.

How many times in other Trek Shows and movies did the Enterprise end up on its own and out gunned yet always pulled off a win. There was a couple of Klingon ship's in the battle in the Disco finale. When there is a Sci-fi show set hundreds of years in the future I can't possibly say I have ever committed to realism. It's the unrealistic factor the lets me suspend believe and feel involved.

I personally thought this season was fantastic and a massive improvement over the first one. So many improvements, but I think they were getting fed up with fans saying they were breaking or ruining canon, so they started to fix and tidy things up and took the ship to the far future so they did not have any canon or events/characters/races they could or couldn't use. It gives them free reign to do anything they want.

I feel that's the correct way to go.

To me, they are no more unbelievable than the various time travel methods in ST:TOS.

They used a black hole in Assignment Earth and Tomorrow Is Yesterday, it was a "time portal" in All Our Yesterdays, another "time portal" in The City On The Edge Of Forever, a space/time warp in The Naked Time, and in ST4:The Voyage Home, a slingshot manoeuvre around the Sun.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

There was also a Borg temporal vortex in First Contact. It's just a plot device to enable time travel. As Hugh stated Trek has had many methods used in other series. All as unrealistic as the next. No different to a Delorean with a flux capacitor reaching 88mph.

Doesn't make them any less enjoyable.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

we've never heard of time crystals though so as with the spore drive, if they exist in the past why aren't they in the future? Rather than them conveniently making something up which has never existed if they need to time travel I would prefer them to use something more science and established in scifi lore and do something like a slingshot round the sun.
