Star Trek: Discovery - Series 1 and tie-in media discussion (spoilers abound)


The Secret Origin of Mr. Saru was a nice traditional trek story. :slight_smile:

Edit: To read post-watching the short


I watched the Short Treks. They’re interesting, but a little hit and miss.

They should keep making them though, trying things out like this is good.


They available in Uk, do you know?


Not officially. No.


Now there’s a carefully worded answer.




BTW, the season has added 1 episode, total count 14.


I watched The Brightest Star last night, and really liked it. As a brief character study it works better than Runaway, partially because Runaway didn’t give us any new information about Tilly, whereas this is all about Saru’s history. It’s more reinforcing what we do know about him rather than giving us more new information, but it’s interesting nonetheless. It’s also impressive how emotionally charged the scene where he says goodbye to his sister is, given the short runtime to that point.

And it was a very nice touch to have Georgiou be the one to meet him


The best one was ‘Calypso’, precisely because everything we found out was new. It’s still a familiar scifi story, but told well.

The other two are fine, perfectly good Star Trek just a bit rushed.



(this one isn’t blocked in some regions)


Like the look of that. The S31 mention neatly removes the problem of how dodgy the last couple of eps of S1 were too.
