Star Trek: Discovery picks up the thread right after the end of the second season. So we see Michael Burnham crash in the future. She comes out of a wormhole and collides with a starship belonging to Charles ‘Book’ Booker. Both crash on an unknown planet, where they get to know each other.
What is going on?
The new season focuses on the question of what happened to the Federation. It is a lot smaller than it has been until now. And that is because of something: the ‘Burn’. We will leave it in the middle for a moment.
Below the first reactions in a row!
ComicBook.com : “Based on these first few episodes, we expect a satisfying and emotional journey for anyone who decides to take it.”
Decider: Discovery now feels like a refreshing take on classic Trek. The first season revolved around a crew who didn’t trust each other, driven apart by a captain who didn’t tell them. This third season lets them work as a unit, exploring strange new planets.
Slant Magazine: “This shift to a more ensemble-driven, idea-focused format is very welcome.
Ars Technica: “Discovery’s rebirth is the rebirth of the Federation’s optimism … and we need it more than ever!”
