Star Trek Discovery Episode 2 Review “Battle At The Binary Star”

“Battle At The Binary Star” is the second episode of Star Trek Disvoery. I gennerally liked it. The storyline worked gennerally well. I liked how it had lots of refrences to canon but also it broke canon in other ways. The ethics computre is an interesting part of the episode.

Storyline

The story was good. It was essentially a 2 parter with episode 1. It’s procally one of the best conclusions of a 2 parter in trek. The story picks up right where episode 1 left off

Canon

Most of the episode fits into canon. There are a couple of things that don’t fit into canon like the ethics computer.

General Stuff

I think the ethics computer is a bad idea because it was so easy for Michael to get out of the birg.

Star Trek Discovery Episode 1 Review “The Vulcan Hello”

“The Vulcan Hello” is the first episode of Star Trek Disvoery. I gennerally liked it. The storyline worked gennerally well. I liked how it had lots of refrences to canon but also it broke canon in other ways.

Storyline

The storyline was decent but didn’t seem like Star Trek because it didn’t seemto deal with real world problems. Generally the storytelling style was unlike Star Trek. All I could say is that it seems like the change of the Klingons is the least of my wories.

Canon

Canon seams to be intact there are lots of refrences to past canon. Like all the books on the shelf on the captians ready room are names after episodes of The Origional Series. In one scene there is a bottle of wine from Chateau Picard.

General Stuff

Ithought that the Vulcan Hello cincept its self was interesting. the design was great but didn’t match up with any canon.

So Star Trek Discovery premeired last Sunday. It was good but just didn’t feel like Star Trek. The 1st couple episodes didn’t have the component of dealing with world issues. I know that I’m a week lat but I’m working on reviews for episodes 1 and 2. By the way I’m launching a new site startreknews.weebly.com

At the International Astronautical Congress Elon Musk talked about hisInterplanetary Transport System codemaned BFR (Big Fucking Rocket), He said that they aim to be at mars by 2024 and have a robot ship to set up the infrastructure that is needed on mars. I’ll try to write a full article on this.
