SIDEBAR: Do you guys know that I’m a Trekkie? I’m a Trekkie, big time, and it’s been killing me that there’s a new Star Trek series that’s only available on a streaming service that otherwise doesn’t interest me. Well, I weakened this past week and bought the first season of Star Trek: Discovery on Blu-Ray.
It’s really growing on me. I started off a little leery; the modern special effects and design aesthetic probably evoke nuTrek a bit much for my tastes. (I’m pretty disappointed with what J.J. Abrams did with Star Trek.) But the deeper into the series I get, the most like Star Trek it feels…it just had to get there.
I’m only six episodes in, so the jury’s still out, but…so far it’s a solid effort, dare I say a WORTHY effort. That’s really all I can ask for.
