I think we need a place to bitch about how bad Discovery is.
I promise I won't defend it... in fact I'll help just to be a sport!
Save anything good you have to say about it for the other threads... take no prisoners here!
So to kick it off... here's a link to Petition to Cancel ST DISCO before it even aired... and it makes some damn good points!
How dare you?
Don’t you realize that the most stress-inducing, anxiety-provoking, cruel thing that you can do to a Star Trek fan is to announce that you are going to give us a new Star Trek series?
I speak for all Star Trek fans (as will the next guy who comes along, albeit with totally different views) when I say that we know exactly what we want in a Star Trek series. We want it to be socially relevant, action-packed, and set during Captain Kirk’s original five-year mission. Except that we also want it to be not-too-preachy, not-too-much-action, and set one hundred years after the Dominion War.
There is one thing that we all know, with 100% certainty, and that is this:
You are going to screw it up.
For this reason, we demand that you cancel the new series now, 14 months before we will ever see what it might have looked like.
In the few short days since you announced the new series, you have thrown small pockets of the internet into total chaos. See for yourself! (We apologize in advance for ultra-nerdy made-up terms like “nuTrek,” “Abramsverse,” and “JJTrek.” Try to sift through that shit as best you can.) Fans have rushed to their keyboards to correct other fans as to what is or is not “real” Trek. And whatever it is, you don’t get it.
We now have more than enough information to know that this series is going to be crap.
