  • I am the story writer and owner of a scifi movie script that has not been filmed [yet] 🙂 thousands of industry professionals have reviewed the script, many loved it, would you believe one said that it was ‘not believable’ 🙂 yeah that is why I called it sci-FI 🙂 and not sci-REAL, the industry changed profoundly about ten years ago, film-able scripts went from about 3,000 annually to over 3,000,000 partly due to a free software that allowed a story line to be formatted into an industry viable screenplay, amazon reserved thousands of new scripts, including mine, for several months, then rejected mine 🙂 however I am addicted to binge watching many amazon originals, so there’s that 🙂 cannot express enough love, respect and fandom to Star Trek Discovery !!

    I like the show, however the tech level is TNG not TOS. I can accept them having the Tech, just not at the level that they have it, still could have made the show updated and stayed true to the level of the tech of TOS. This show would better fit the Kelvin time line with tech level and look.

    This is MY OWN PERSONAL REVIEW of the newest addition to the Star Trek franchise; Star Trek: Discovery.

    Simply put … “Star Trek: Discovery is OUTRAGEOUSLY GOOD!” In my humble (Or not so humble …) opinion; Star Trek: Discovery is THE BEST Star Trek show ever made …FILM or SERIES! SERIOUSLY FOLKS; It’s THAT good!

    We are treated to a great, exciting and intelligent storyline; outrageously spectacular Special-FX, and REALLY, REALLY GREAT and talented actors!

    This new Star Trek franchise has it’s OWN voice and steps apart from it’s previous incarnations in presenting truly, fully developed characters with diverse, realistic personality strengths flaws! We are also treated to various dynamics of inter-personal relations; both human and extra-terrestrial.

    No longer must we settle for relatively bland characters who are morally evolved “Post-Humans” in an almost utopian future! While we see the human race has evolved beyond the Ball-and-Chains of overt, racial bigotry, classism and ALL the other detriments of human character; we see humanity still struggling with personality strengths and liabilities as well as great cultural, moral and existential difficulties when interacting Alien Races within our own galaxy; who may or may NOT be interested in peaceful co-existence with mankind.

    ANOTHER refreshing difference in this new Star Trek series is seeing the more realistic depictions of how strong personalities still clash with each other in a future of great scientific advancement for humanity.

    NOT ALL the characters on this new Federation Star-Ship are pleasant, amiable and evolved characters that would be fun to be with; which is GREAT because it shows humanity doesn’t become this bland, benign compilation of human characters.

    In humanity’s future; there are still ass-holes and arrogant, flawed, judgemental people who struggle to get along with each other just as we do today.

    I highly recommend Star Trek: Discovery to EVERYONE looking to escape the dismal daily news and political morass we all find ourselves in!

    (What I wouldn’t give to leave Earth on a Starship right now…!)

    I also want to point out; this series has hit the ground running and doesn’t need to “Find-its-Own Voice” or “Grow into it’s Own …” or the actors to “Grow into their Roles…!”;

    Another difference in this new Star Trek series is the central characters are NOT arranged around the captain of this Starship; but instead; the life and struggles of a newly conscripted Federation First Officer played by Sonequa Martin-Green (Formerly of AMC’s – The Walking Dead) of a previous starship, destroyed by an unfortunate series of events which escalated into a full-scale inter-galactic war!

    Sonequa’s character presents another immediate departure from ALL previous female roles in that, her female characters’ role bears the noted male name of Michael Dunham.

    Michael’s “Fascinating” [Nod to the eyebrow raising Vulcan role of the original Star Trek series] backstory is replete with a myriad of memories and challenges elegantly detailed in personal momentary flashbacks of one of the most extraordinary childhoods ever written in literature! – Not to give anything away; but you will be gratified to discover Star Trek: Discovery continues it’s tradition of including a “Vulcan” presence on it’s Starship Command Bridge.

    You can learn more about Michael Dunham’s character by reading about her in the first and newest of Star Trek: Discovery’s series novelizations; Star Trek: Discovery: Desperate Hours by David Mack.

    Captain Gabriel Lorca played by seasoned actor Jason Isaacs, brings gritty steeliness to the role of a brilliant war-tested Federation Starship captain commanding a Federation Starship vessel which is NOT an EXPLORATORY starship on a 5 year mission of peace, seeking out new life and new civilizations; but a prototype science starship given a Warship mission; facing a determined and malevolent alien race dedicated to the genocide of the human race!

    Not to disappoint, but this series debuted in fine Star Trek fashion; with all the requisite thought-provoking plots, nuances and dilemmas which has always made Star Trek such an enduring literary tradition, and dare I say it; entertainment institution. I think I can speak for everyone when I say, “We’ve ALL needed this!”

    I’m sure EVERYONE will really enjoy this new Star Trek series which will hopefully be around as it’s previous incarnations for many seasons to come! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/08dc925b4337bde27b5e9f1ef1d009ae0563cc3dbd447835ae9683321a8dfb6e.jpg https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/230d37a20f4929589d75ca670fb7ba470d4960e64c20f1f40f9c0554931f4de1.jpg https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/bcb23c3e1e43265fff061bb981d2d41133ef8326b2852ef4586b11aa8ce734fe.jpg https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/9cd406eae9a3f618ea50b73254c0d21428f842f14c4df53daf894c43a8c15ed9.jpg
