Fans of the sci-fi beast that is Star Trek have been divided over this edition. It is different from the others as it spends a lot of time on social and political issues. Almost like it is attempting to address today’s issues within the series. Some applaud that while others are turned off. I say, isn’t that what all shows are about? Some will like the risks taken while others will pooh pooh the attempt to stray from the norm.
There are definitely more emotions going on in this version of Star Trek. I think older fans won’t appreciate the venturing from the norm while young viewers will go along for the ride. The series is supposed to boldly go, isn’t it?
In season four, Captain Burnham (played by Sonequa Martin-Green) and her crew on the U.S.S. Discovery are facing a big threat. Maybe their biggest as a team. The U.S.S. Discovery has followed its captain into a wormhole and found themselves in a new world that is 1,000 years in the future. It is a world that none of them are familiar with.
At the same time, the Federation and Starfleet are on the precipice of a collapse. This is because of a catastrophe known as the Burn. Now it is up to the Discovery to find out what the cause was with help from two new but not entirely trustworthy helpers in Book (played by David Ajala) and Adira (played by Blu del Barrio). This is vital to restore some hope throughout the entire galaxy.
