I’m only now just starting to warm up to Star Trek: Discovery. But I am warming up. Season 2 looks like it could be fairly strong.

So, here’s me, thinking out loud about what I like and don’t like about the show.

The Gaze and The Gays

First, I’m glad that they’ve dispensed with the “let’s make sure we give our young, cishet, male viewers their requisite number of boners.” I mean, Star Trek: Enterprise was hyperactive about finding reasons to put T’Pol in her underwear while Archer rubbed suntan lotion decontamination gel on her skin. And that was clearly a thing they did because 7 of 9 taught them that having a hot chick in a skintight uniform helps with the ratings.

Georgiou was my initial favourite and I hate that they killed her off, but I love the Empress so much that I forgave them. I think they could do an amazing plot to resurrect Culber, but I don't think they'll go the route I'm hoping for.

I don't love the design of the ship or Klingons (actually, I loathe the Klingons and would have done away with that whole plot in S1 and just never shown them at all) and I really don't like the retconning that implies that certain key things (Burnham, the spore drive, the Mirror Universe) get somehow forgotten by TOS. But I do love the uniforms as they have pockets, which is the only thing I care about in a uniform.

P.S. replying on your actual blog doesn't work for me. :( It thinks I'm a robot. I understand why, but I don't like it.
