Critic Reviews for Star Trek: Discovery Season 1

All Critics (67) | Top Critics (18)

For now, the new Star Trek feels less like a reboot than an attempt to turn sci-fi's most cerebral property into a glum Star Wars clone.

Sep 25, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

As the medium of television evolves, it's comforting to know that Star Trek is there to evolve right along with it.

Sep 25, 2017 | Full Review…

While Discovery is fundamentally quite different from much of the Trek that's come before, its engagement with the franchise, and willingness to both celebrate and examine its core values, keep it true to that spirit.

The actor playing this mysterious Gabriel Lorca -- Jason Isaacs -- also happens to be a major talent who instantly lifts Martin-Green's game. These two appear to be a winning, multidimensional combo.

In short, [Discovery] announces a series of high ambition, fit for purpose for the golden age of TV.

Sep 29, 2017 | Full Review…

It's got enough good stuff to keep me watching. Nonetheless, it feels a bit too obsessed with Star Trek for its own sake, rather than as a vehicle for telling stories with broader resonance.

Sep 29, 2017 | Full Review…

This messy iteration is not what Trekkies deserve.

Feb 1, 2019 | Full Review…

The effects are suitably impressive, the characters and premise are compelling, and a clear effort has gone into producing something new and different that still upholds the spirit of hope and optimism the entire franchise embodies.

Jan 28, 2019 | Full Review…

It was a risk to set a new Star Trek show several years before the events of the Original Series, but, as it turns out, it was a risk worth taking.

Star Trek: Discovery seeks its own personality within the saga. And it's on its way to finding it. [Full Review in Spanish]
