Re: Star Trek Discovery

Your missing the point, the beginning of ToS and TNG were ropey as hell. Discovery suddenly made them look like cinematic master pieces. Also we have the Orville to directly compare with, the Orville obviously has script editors and someone who understands the importance of continuity checking a scr...
