Crew is expected to follow their commander. No matter what. This time a crew does exactly that and they end up in a heap of trouble. This is what happened in the season two finale of Star Trek: Discovery. Sent through a wormhole the U.S.S. Discovery ends up in another time far from home. Being 1,000 years in the future knocks everyone for a loop. Plus Starfleet and the Federation are on the brink of collapse due to something called The Burn.
Times are trying for Commander Michael Burnham (played by Sonequa Martin-Green) and her crew. Nothing is as they knew it. It leads to plenty of uncertainty, need for team work and some new friends. They are going to need to adapt quickly and help restore the Federation to its former state of power. Bring back hope into the galaxy.
For sci-fi fans Star Trek is right at the top of the food chain. Meaning for those who came after the original series and equally the one with Captain Picard at the helm it has been tough for subsequent films/series to measure up. This is true for Discovery, a series which timewise happens before the original series. Over the course of its three seasons the series has been rather polarizing with fans. Either they love it or hate it. I don’t think anything that happened in season three is going to change that.
Visually this series is great. Loads to keep your eyes happy with what they are seeing. Definitely the coolest part of the series. Storywise season three starts with plenty of oomph. Interest is piqued. Charismatic characters are introduced. Unfortunately they don’t stick with what is interesting – in regards to story or character. Really U.S.S. Discovery consists of all red shirts. Meaning none of the supporting crew members are all that interesting. This is the strength of the series which were popular. The only character worth your time is Commander Burnham and this season she spends a lot of her time crying. Most of the storylines devolve into something akin to what you would see on a soap opera.
