The Features Of The Star Trek
Star Trek Discovery features a history of controversy and criticism, but what proportion of it’s earned? Here’s why it’s better than you would possibly think. No matter what proportion Star Trek fans love their fandom, Trekkies also are their own harshest critics. Whether fans just have some critiques or hate it, the backlash are often exhausting. Especially since, and despite all of that they hate, the show is successfully moving onto its third season.
The Discoveries Of It
At the top of the day, does Discovery deserve all the hate it gets? Or are fans just going overboard? In some ways, yes. In other, not really.
While Star Trek has seriously devoted fans, tons of its alien design struggled to maneuver past “human but insert some face ridge/spots/etc. here”. Trekkies adore Bajorans, Trill, and Klingons, but creating complex character designs just didn’t seem to get on the table and that they settled because hey, the space drama remains fun. And in no way would anyone want to offer up Major Kira or Deanna Troi.
But Discovery has taken the alien designs and appears to a replacement, wondrous level.
Star Trek has always been a touch wibbly-wobbly with its time rules and historical revisions, but Discovery’s really bad at about it. And, honestly, worse than most of the people mention. While everyone adored Spock and Sarek in Discovery, it’s still violently jarring that these huge, long-running characters never mentioned the daughter/sister they wont to have. this is often where retconning goes a touch too far.
The True Findings
Discovery truly did its best to roll with it and still get an inspiring story from it, but it doesn’t change the very fact it can make tons of retroactive information confusing. it is the curse of prequels. Because with what proportion good Discovery did, nobody ever mentions the ship, crew, or its actions.
