i watched the first 3 episodes of Star trek discovery and so so far is very crappy and amateurish. First of all the visual look, why does it look so dark, you can barely distinguish anything, and it's not only the space, it's also the inside of ships. Everything looks very amateur, you can clearly see or not see(bad visuals) that they are not spending much money. The first 2 episodes were terrible and confusing. They had a 2 second battle as a war declaration by the klingons AKA space orcs vs the federations, and eventhou it was a 2 second battle, you get very confused because the light and dark visuals dont let you see much as i said before. The visuals just have a weird look. Yes the klingons look like space orcs and they sound like them too, very disappointing. They are actually dumber than orcs. There is this cult leader klingon that doesnt belong to the klingon leadership or coulncil, they actually dont like him yet he convinces them to attack the federation just by saying that it is his destiny to unite the klingons and they have become complacent and they need to follow him into war. I know, it sounds dumber than crap but that's what i got. And eventhou the Klingon council dont like this Dumbass cult leader, they decide to follow him because he yelled fire at the federation. It felt like a leeroy jenkins type of scenario.
Lets get serious here. The 3rd episode is a bit better but still not good. Let me explain something here, i wrote at the top about the klingons and the 2 second war but that is like a few minutes minutes of the entire show so far. The entire show POV, story, attention and almost every scene is focused on one character and one character alone. There are very few scenes in the show where this character is not on the scene. Im talking about the female protagonist of the show. In the first 2 episodes she was the number one of a ship AKA second in command but got demoted, sentenced to prison for life and partly blamed for starting the war. Almost every scene of the 3 episodes is about her and her story which includes confusing flashbacks. This is not an ensemble show like the past star trek, so far she is the story. She is a human raised by vulcans.
My verdict so far is that the show is crap. What bothered me most was how the show looked and felt., doesnt look like a star trek show. The premise of a war with the kilngon is a good premise but they are not executing it well. I really dont know if a war with the klingons can be executed well when all the attention, Most of the Points Of View are given to one character that is not even a captain. The show feels small like the protagonist is the only character of the show. The orville by seth macfarlane looks and feels more like a star trek show, having said that, i hate the Orville after watching one episode and seth macfarlane as an actor.
