It’s here (after a fashion)… the return of that other science fiction television franchise, and the controversy that surrounded it before its debut (it’s 10 years before Kirk! it looks like the Abramsverse! it’s on CBS All Access!) hasn’t subsided yet. From the ridiculous (why haven’t we heard about the Spore Drive? why don’t the uniforms match?) to the sublime (are we really in the prime universe?), from questions of continuity (why did we never hear about Burnham?) to matters of morality (just what’s up with Lorca?) and sheer surprise (witness the sudden story shift after episode 2), we’ll take a look at the latest entry into the Trek franchise: the pros and cons, highlights and low, cast and crew notes, and much more.
