I really liked the series. I had not seen any episodes before I bought this Blu-Ray. The bonus features are really good, also. I really enjoyed seeing Sarek as a guest star on some of the episodes. The only problem I had is this series is supposed to take place before Star Trek: The Original Series and some of the technology seems to be too up to date compared to TOS. I think I will be buying season two.
Good story telling for the most part. Prequels are always tough due to increased expectations and each star trek series has also needed a season or so to really get on it's feet. The redesign of the klingons is an esthetic choice I don't really enjoy but it's not enough to disregard the series as a whole.
I would recommend this to a friend
Rating 5 out of 5 stars with 1 review
different, likeable characters. excellent special
This Star Trek series is different from all the previous series, in an attractive fashion. In the ST time line this ST is post ST Enterprise and just before the original ST started. There are some fimilar characters from the original series in Discovery. The new characters are an interesting and many cases a likeable group. There are several interesting and occasionally surprising story lines. The special effects are excellent, but like the other ST series its the characters that make this show work. Closer to the first two new ST movies in character than to the various series.
I have a subscription to CBS All Access and was disappointed by the quality of the streaming. The streaming audio was Dolby Pro Logic and the picture quality was disappointing at times. The blue ray version is much better with uncompressed DTS HD Master audio the the picture is pristine. Only 4 four stars because I wish CBS would have released a 4K UHD version with Dolby Atmos or DTS-X, but this set is well worth buying if you have a high end home theater system or if you don't have a subscription to CBS All Access. The content is wonderful.
