I'm enjoying Star Trek Discovery. There is a bit of a storyline thread from show to show and it seems quite a bit darker than other series. It does feel like they brought the show forward in some ways. Although, this is a prequel to the original Star Trek. It's going to be interesting to learn how Kirk and Spock happened.

It’s very well made. Interesting and appealing characters and a good plot. Stunning special effects.

My only issue with it (as Strategist mentioned) is it seems too dark (both in appearance and emotion) for Star Trek. The Enterprise was always colorful and brightly lit and it showed a very positive future. I don’t see how they get there from here.

(The Orville looks more like the Enterprise.)

It will be interesting to see if/how they explain Michael and Spock’s relationship.

I agree with everyone's assessment of how it's too dark etcetera etcetera and also too advanced for the timeline in my opinion I personally I think that the worst thing that happened to Discovery is the Orville. The Orville wins in almost every category in my head as it checks off all the boxes that Discovery doesn't.

They've definitely captured the ship appearance (though the special effects aren't as good) and positive emotions. However, the Orville is a little too over the top silly to be like Star Trek.

I agree that the humor is over the top but that's what makes it so lovable. I love how they're not so stiff and formal with each other on the Orville. It took some getting used to but now I love it.

Well I do agree that in the original series (the one from the 60's), while they weren't totally casual, they weren't very militaristic either. It wasn't like they barked orders and saluted every other minute. They were pretty relaxed for the most part. Plus they were primarily an exploratory science vessel (something subsequent Star Trek series seem to have lost sight of).

So why do the Klingon's think "we come in peace" is a bad thing? (I am watching Star Trek Into Darkness and the Klingons are still pretty mad at Starfleet). I remembered they said this in the first show, and wondered if there is backstory on why they hate Starfleet.

I think the story is that the Klingons don't think that it is possible for anyone to come in peace so they see it as trickery and an insult when Starfleet says it.

Also Klingons are warriors, they don't like anyone. They don't want peace they want war, so they will use any excuse to fight.

That is exciting and would be worth checking out. I've met and interviewed Garrett Wang he's a cutie and he was very frank with me about not enjoying working with the actress who played the captain. Somewhere I have a photo of he and I together.

Really, that is interesting Mameblanche, did he just not like Kate Mulgrew or was she just full of herself (as captain) or something?

I always liked her in that role, but that doesn't mean she was nice in real life, LOL.

To be honest I really don't remember what his issue with her was but he was real clear about his attitude towards her. I got the vibe though that maybe she was snobby towards some of the cast. But it was around the year 2000 when we chatted and my memory is shite.
