Star Trek: Discovery got off to a bad start. It seemed like someone took the JJ Abrams version of Trek and then added a double helping of angst on top. The new Klingons look silly and their style of speech is best described as 'irritating'. Most of the characters are interchangable. The whole concept of the "spore drive" is goofy even by Star Trek standards. That being said, the new "Mirror Universe" plot arc is an improvement at least. It still seems to have far too much angstiness for Trek but at least its interesting. It's letting some of the characters do things besides stand around and look grim. Last nights episode even had a plot twist that took me by surprise.
A lot has been said on how The Orville seems to capture the spirit of Star Trek better than Discovery. And in the first season as a whole, I agree. But I think the next season of both shows will be the more interesting battle. If Discovery takes this season to "Grow The Beard" like what happened to TNG and The Orville can keep up the quality it had this season, 2018/2019 could be a very interesting year for Star Trek fans
