News & Interviews for Star Trek: Discovery: Season 2
"Star Trek: Discovery's" second season offers a bit more traditional "Trek" adventure while promising to show new sides of characters that fans have known for decades - talk about going boldly where no one has gone before.
A fun, nostalgic, energetic re-entry that makes up for that sometimes bloated bore of a first season.
There's a lot of set-up packed into this premiere, and for now the direction set is worth traveling.
With a course correction and a potential spin-off, this new age of Star Trek finally achieves escape velocity from the old.
I enjoyed it precisely because it was an episode of Star Trek: Discovery and not a slavish attempt to revisit old Trek favorites.
There's little to no effort made to deepen the ensemble, who are stuck spouting pseudoscience-based dialogues that sound very smart but likely wouldn't mean much if you stopped to dissect them.
This season sees the crew discover whether there's still material to be squeezed out of the original series.
Star Trek has never adequately applied its own philosophy of IDIC-'Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations'-to gender and sexuality. Discovery attempts to rectify that.
Season two uses fan favorite characters to bolster its strong cast without relying too heavily on the franchise's existing lore.
Tilly, meanwhile, was just as delightful as always... Stamets might want her to "say fewer things," but I don't!
Audience Reviews for Star Trek: Discovery: Season 2
2d agoThe mystery plot around the red angel ends in a ridiculously stupid finale. Captain Pike is the only bright spot in this season. It's fascinating that a series about the Discovery doesn't end its season with the Discovery in the final scene (they're trying to set up more spin-offs). Michael Burnham is still supposed to be the hero of the series, but since she's not the captain of the Discovery, she's not in a position to make the big decisions, yet she has all the answers and rebels without consequence (because she's always right in the end). I don't remember most of the crew members. The bridge crew is more or less wallpaper and the story revolves mostly around Michael Burnham. As far as production goes, the series is well done. There are still annoyingly overused flashes and tracking shots, but the costumes, masks and CG are well done on a film level. The Sar Trek easter eggs (props) are neat. I wish they had invested the budget in a better script.
May 06, 2021After seeing some of the reviews on this show and so many people claiming that this is not a true Star Trek series and not true to the original Star Trek, I had to register to comment. Anybody who says this series is not true to TOS clearly has no idea what the original series was all about. What marked the original series was how PROGRESSIVE it was, when viewed against the sexism, racism, and war-mongering violence of its time. TOS offered a vision of the world that had moved beyond sexism, racism, ethnocentrism, greed, violence, and war. True, the earlier series was androcentric and did have regressive elements, but by and large it was the progressive way it dealt with social issues that made it what it was. Of course, at the time, conservatives did not like the show specifically because of its progressive take on things, but so what. Over the years, TOS proved itself to be WAY ahead of its time. As the world caught up, it garnered the respect that it fully deserved. Such is the way with Discovery. It too is progressive and way ahead of its time, showing gay relationships, remarkable character diversity, and levels of emotional intelligence that you rarely see on television. Characters in the show are not carbon copies of the tired old white-male authority figure stereotypes. They are emotional, expressive, conflicted, imperfect, and struggling to make their way in a complex and ever-changing universe. They represent a colourful spectrum of potential and personality not restricted by the dominant cultural box that has so many people still tied up in diminished emotional and psychological knots. It is telling that many critics point to the white-male Pike character, as progressive as he is, as the only worthwhile character in the story while dismissing all those who do not fit in with their constricted and stereotyped view of what people should be like. These critics betray their own stereotyped view of the world and, like critics of Star Trek TOS, betray their own ageing and conservative views. It is unfortunate that people who loved the original TOS for its progressive nature have failed to evolve and grow with the times and now find themselves in the same position as critics of the original series--failing to understand just how wonderful and progressive Star Trek Discovery really is.
May 05, 2021great sci-fi, fun characters, maybe a bit too sassy. Big mysteries, serious stories, space battles, action. I really lied it.
Apr 28, 2021Avoid the trailers as some contain spoilers. This season was awesome, the narrative arc was EPIC, the final episode was an amazing spectacle that brought together the season's narrative arc that had been building up throughout. It felt slow until somewhere in the middle when the pieces started coming together. Emotionally powerful performances from Sonequa as Burnham and Peck as Spock, who really did the character justice by the way. Many other great performances. Occasionally there were moments where it just didn't work - I can't say much more without spoilers - but it is really worth watching.
Apr 21, 2021The story is kinda OK with a decent mystery, though Mary Sure Burnham gets really annoying really quickly. And then we're back in bad plot Trek territory. Captain Pike, however, steals the show. Dude needs his own series, basically.
Apr 14, 2021Absolutely sloppy, generic and mindless. Couldn't be more detached from the thoughtful and intriguing Star Trek episodes we all know and love even if it tried.
Apr 03, 2021If I could give this zero stars I would! This show is just terrible all around there is nothing good I can say about it!
Apr 02, 2021Pike was good, that's it
Mar 11, 2021It becomes apparent after only a few episodes of this show why there's almost a 50 point drop in user ratings. The characters' decisions are maddeningly stupid- like Pike constantly putting himself in dangerous situations. This represents a huge departure from the lore and common sense of a ship policy. I cancelled my CBS subscription because of this show.
Mar 11, 2021The good: There is action and good special effects. The bad: Unfortunately, they've somehow managed to make the main character so insufferable that it's mostly just painful to watch. I love a good anti-hero story, but you won't grow to care about any of the characters, which doesn't work for an extremely emotional show. By the second season, the main character (and sometimes others) are crying multiple times per episode, every episode. When the characters are unlikeable, the constant tearjerker storylines are very unpleasant and don't ring true.
