Discovery ticks a lot of the boxes I wanted from a new TV trek:
– Shorter season
– More serialised storytelling
– Interesting cast (I remember thinking when they announced it that it would be amazing if they got Doug Jones in to play an alien.)
– Diverse characters
Barring The Expanse, I don’t watch any space sci fi on TV at the moment, which is really weird. I think any series with this cast and premise would be on my list, and the fact that it’s Star Trek is an added bonus. I don’t like prequels as a rule, but there’s enough good stuff here to make me give it a chance.
