Most are familiar with the Star Trek name when it comes to sci fi films and television series. This edition of the franchise is different from what has come before. It is still a series which happens in space and involves universal/social themes. But in regards to scope this one is bigger.
A decade before the time of Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock, there was the U.S.S. Discovery. Under Commander Michael Burnham (played by Sonequa Martin-Green) the ship welcomes aboard Captain Christopher Pike (played by Anson Mount) and he and the crew are tasked with getting to the bottom or origin of seven mysterious red signals.
This is a season of two distinct halves. In the first half there is less of a focus on the typical Star Trek philosophical storylines and more of concentration on relationships and romance. The second half, the better half, reverts more to the well known Star Trek path. Plenty of questions and investigations into what it is that makes us human.
Plenty of twists and turns happen throughout the 12 episodes and it all ends with a strong finale.
