Re: DSC S3: Su'Kal

Star Trek was great because of the mythical nature of the characters, I.e Jean luc, worf, garak, etc. They were inspiring to me and to the context of my life, in the same way you might think of characters from Game of Thrones, or Greek myth, or the Mahabharata. They may have flaws, but they represent something essential and inspiring about humanity. Discovery not only fails in this tradition but also fails to create any semblance that these are real humans. It’s like watching a really really bad version of the Office in space. Actually I’d rather watch Michael Scott and Dwight in space rather than this trash.

Re: DSC S3: Unification III

This show is such a disgrace to the patient storytelling of shows like TNG or Deep Space Nine. The emotions are fake, the stories are melodramatic, and there is no sense that these are real people carrying out their lives in deep space. Science fiction uniquely allows us to broaden our thinking: there is no imagination in this show, no sense of real drama or stakes. It's a wonder that a show about a drug dealer making meth in barren Albequerque New Mexico is more transportive and optimistic about human potential than a show set among the stars.
