Yeah, while I don't find the whole Red Angel or the Search for Spock V2.0 compelling at all, I'm still enjoying it enough to keep watching but it's definitely a step down from last season.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery

It's official: CBS All Access today announced the third season renewal of Star Trek: Discovery and also that Michelle Paradise will join Alex Kurtzman as co-showrunner for season three. Additionally, Kurtzman will continue to oversee the expansion of the growing Star Trek universe for CBS Studios.

Anson Mount says Captain Pike’s Star Trek: Discovery story will not end in tragedy.


Yeah, they definitively hit the nail on the head with Anson Mount playing the role of Christopher Pike. I’ve loved Anson since Hell On Wheels, and man, he's the perfect fit to play the role of Captain Pike. His character is so drastically different from Lorca that it's like a breath of fresh air from night to day. Anson is simply tailor-made for this, and as an actor, he seems like he was born to play the role of Capt. Pike. He's definitely on the boy scout end of the spectrum when it comes to Starfleet captains, but out of the five main ones (Kirk, Picard, Janeway, Sisko, and Archer), he definitely deserves a seat at the Captain's Table. Hell, I had Anson as Capt. Pike ranked ahead of Jonathan Archer by the second episode. I've been licking my chops for almost a year waiting to watch the second season of Discovery the minute I found out about Anson Mount playing Capt. Pike. Even hardcore old school Trekkies (who don't like DISCO) appreciate Captain Pike. This guy is the real deal and has that authentic, throwback, classic Starfleet captain's swagger, confidence, charisma, strength, compassion, and leadership to prove it. A possible (yet true) Section 31 backstory piqued my interest last season, and now Capt. Pike has added to that tenfold.

Scrap any and all new projects in the works and just give me Anson Mount starring in The Adventures of Captain Pike Aboard the USS Enterprise and the USS Discovery every day of the week!! big_smile

Re: Star Trek: Discovery

This is a sad end to many years of enjoyable Star Trek franchise series. The plotting is beyond stupid, the characters don't grab me at all. So much money has been wasted on this tripe. Such a shame.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery

I enjoyed the last episode, hopefully the show will get many more seasons smile

Re: Star Trek: Discovery

Yeah it's sad how boring and bland the cast is. The only character i found interesting was S01 Lorca. I red something about the creators tried their best to make him unlikable with his "toxic masculinity"... how's that for irony?


If they could somehow replace the entire cast that would be great. Oh and replace the writers/producers with someone creative and someone with love for sci fi and strar trek.

Funny, I remember fans saying the same thing about Enterprise many moons ago. So I guess it's safe to assume that you no longer watch Discovery? No point in continuing to watch something that's going to leave you miserable in the process.

And replace them with who? If the writing is atrocious and there's no direction, to go along with absurd creative choices, then I don't think it's going to make much of a difference who they bring in as replacements. Just saying. Personally, I never had a problem with any of their casting choices, and there are probably only two characters I don't particularly care for overall. The cast, the characters, and the acting was never a problem IMO.

Yeah, I'm afraid that ship has already sailed with Bryan Fuller at the helm. https://i105.photobucket.com/albums/m225/maritajan/smileys/rollingtheeyes.gif

haha weird that was also the most (only?) interesting character for me. Not from the start but in course of season 1.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery

2x09 finally a good Discovery episode.
Maybe it was the writers, maybe Jonathan Frakes directing it, but i finally cared a little about the crew and enjoyed the episode.
