“Star Trek: Discovery” - season 2 brings back the same great level of acting, effects, & stories introduced in season 1. A little disappointed that the creators/ writers have decided to remake some of the episodes from the “Star Trek” Universe but these re-writes aren’t bad at all, as they give additional ‘fleshing out’ of established crew & situations in the “Star Trek” canon. My only real complaint is that the series is currently run on an exclusive steaming service. Good thing they decided to put the series on Blu-Ray. Anxiously awaiting the BR release of season 3. Well worth the watching!
I really enjoy Star Trek Discovery. The season picks up right where season one left off. I have always been a fan of Star Trek but I never considered myself as hardcore as many others do out there. This show has been considered very divisive among the Star Trek fan community due to the change in tone and storytelling. I also feel that this show is a great jumping on point for people who have never really watched a lot of Star Trek before. I like the changes that have been made in this series. The special effects are near theatrical quality and the pacing is much faster than old Star Trek. If you enjoyed the JJ Abrams films than this is the series for you. Older fans might find this to just not quite be the Trek they are looking for. Either way I would recommend any fan of good science fiction to watch both seasons of this slick production. Highly recommended.
I am old enough to be an original viewer of the first Star Trek episode in 1966. So seeing this show today I was at first wondering how I would reconcile how the technology of USS Discovery far exceeded 1966 NCC1701A. But the the technology in TV/Movies advances and since science fiction requires you suspend belief I found this show to be very engrossing. Am anticipating S3 900 years into the future
I had read many positive and negative reviews when this show launched. I am old enough to remember the premiere of TNG and DS9, both of which were also bashed before they had even started. I picked up season 1, watched it with an open mind and enjoyed it. I looked forward to season 2 when I learned it would feature Christopher Pike and I was not disappointed. We got to learn more about each of the regular characters, and it was great to learn more about Captain Pike. Can't wait for season 3!
I like Star Trek. I have seen all of the movies and tv series so far. I know a lot of fans were disappointed with Discovery. But I'm not so picky when it comes to Star Trek. So far Discovery is a fun journey through space with some old characters and new ones too. If you are a casual fan of scifi you will like this, so give it a try. Just make sure to start with season one of Discovery and you will understand where all of the characters come from. It doesn't make any statements on society like some of the other Treks do, but it is an adventure for scifi fans.
I am greatly enjoying this second season Blu-ray of "Star Trek: Discovery." I had a little difficulty finding it on the shelf but a store employee helped me promptly and in a very professional manner. The only thing that would have made this better is if the price is a little lower. If I were willing to wait I could have gotten it cheaper through Amazon Prime. However, being able to immediately take possession made the purchase worth the extra price.
What can I say? This was purchased as a Christmas gift for a STAR TREK fan who wanted it. I am sure that this will be a most appreciated gift since I can see how popular this new series is. I have every confidence that this show is as good as it's popularity warrents, and Best Buy's service of delivery is the best you can get! If you like STAR TREK, or know someone that does, this will be a most appreciated gift!
I would recommend this to a friend

I have been waiting for several months for this Blu-ray disk of Star Trek: Discovery Season 2 to become available for purchase at Best Buy. The quality of the Blu-ray disk was outstanding with no scratches, glitches or pixelating. Thoroughly thrilled to watch all episodes.
