Topic: Star Trek: Discovery premiere was shit.

It's too late to judge a show just by the first episode and the season looks like it could get better, but it's certainly not off to a good start. It feels exactly like the J.J. Abrams Bad Robot movies and yes, there is a shitfuck of lensflare. It's nice to see something new, but in this instance, maybe it would have been better to cater to nostalgia since that way you would have at least respected the original material and not have made a generic Sci-Fi video game with the label of Star Trek on it.

The ancient Klingons were a nice touch, but you might be more satisfied by playing Skyrim instead.

The episode felt like a mash between Mass Effect and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim that would leave someone wondering how come they aren't just playing those games instead of watching a ripoff.

Also, a human being attempts to do the Vulcan nerve pinch and manages to succeed for a short period of time.
This literally makes no sense when the reason why that pinch works in the first place is because Vulcans are a stronger species than humans. I know that character was the only human to have went to the Vulcan science academy, but she's not a damn Vulcan.

This should have been a series set in the Prime timeline, but perhaps it is for the best that it is the Kelvin timeline because it would have fucked things up.
