Re: DSC S3: Terra Firma, Part 2

ST Discovery is the Trek series that got me interested in Star Trek. Since S1 of Disco, I watched all of Voyager, Next Gen, TOS, Picard and bits of Ent and DS9 as well as all of the movies.
Discovery has become my least fav of them all. And these last 2 episodes were 2 of my least favs so far.
What ST Discovery is absolutely brilliant at, besides looking amazing, is casting and broad ideas for characters. The writers rely on a fanbase of people who embrace seeing diversity and they coast on the goodwill of it. Georgiou was a good example. There just wasn't much redeemable about her, but Michelle Yeoh is great AND a non-white woman over 40. Trek fans (like me) are all great people who say "Yes! this is a person I want to see represented more on screen!". And the writers and casting have done this down the line. Tilly isn't built like 7 of 9! Stammets and Dr guy are gay! Non-Binary person! This is all great. But it doesn't add up to such a good show. It's more of a collection of ideas for character types from a checklist. I also feel like the show is in love with itself because it is so inclusive and open. I get that those great qualities are what Trek and the Federation and Starfleet etc are built on, but it just feels so forced and contrived on this iteration of Trek.
