I wanted more time to get to know, and be invested in, the supporting cast. Short Treks could be the thing that does that.

Audience Reviews for Star Trek: Discovery: Short Treks

    The most absolute garbage show I have ever seen in my life. Tries way to hard. Prolongs way to long. Every single person makes constant stupid decisions all the time and is way to hell-bent on everyone trying to save everyone and it being way to difficult to let even a flick of dust die. Tilly is the most fucking annoying character I have ever seen. Micheal is the dumbest smart person I have ever seen. Seru is just a brick wall of boring shit. Fuck me this show is so bad.

    A poorly executed show centred around the unbelievable, unlikable character of Michael Burnham. The adage ���������when the centre becomes periphery, the periphery becomes central' applies here. The central pillars of startrek and sci fi are moved to the periphery to make way for the god like character of Burnham. Burnham greedily hogs every scene, every plot line, makes each decision, solves each mystery and defeats every enemy with dreary predictably. STD's dialogue is poorly written and never feels genuine. Pseudo emotional monologues alternate between wooden exchanges where characters finish each other's sentences. Conversations are scripted in a strange way, describing what is happening for the benefit of the viewing audience rather than depicting genuine interactions. Plots are absurd; based around fantasy and magic instead of science fiction. The writing is a politically over-corrected mess, where male characters are given diminished standing and respect. Continuity has been abandoned; plot holes and contradictions litter each poorly written episode. There are glimpses of genuine startrek and elements of a good show but these only serve to remind ��������what could have been'.

    Worse than the first season.

    Episodes have been well structured, the bridge crew has come together, and the overarching plot is definitely intriguing. Characters are coming into their own, and the series definitely has plenty for long-term fans!

    These short takes were odd. It feels like there were production issues that held them back from being good. They're not worth watching, but it won't waste too much of your time if you do.

    Why is the technology so advanced in the past vs the current timeline? Please stop making retro shows. Loved Enterprise but wouldâ??ve preferred the also not be pre TOS. All the super effects are visually stunning but I dont believe this is a Star Trek show if itâ??s in the pre TOS timeframe. Another iteration that just kills the franchise for me. Doesnâ??t feel like Trek so just make it 100 years after Next Gen - then your in uncharted territory! All problems solved!

    I think the reason why the audience score is so low is because of the trolls and people picking on identity politics. I think its really well written and I enjoyed it a lot.

    Like season 1, just more incoherent.

    These were not very interesting. Frankly, I've seen much better short Treks from fan films. CBS, skip these, and concentrate on making Star Trek better.
