Jonathan Frakes, who famously taught us all how to sit in chairs as William T. Riker on Star Trek: The Next Generation and will direct an episode of Discovery, seconded Visitor's assessment.

FOX | Who Shot Biggie & Tupac? did 2.8 mil and a 1.1.

We've got a comprehensive guide of everything you need to know about Star Trek: Discovery before it premieres, whether you're a complete newbie or a Trek fanatic below, so read up if you've been thinking about giving the new series a go. CBS All Access ain't Netflix, after all.

Star Trek: Discovery debuted to positive reviews.

Yet it also summed up one of the main essential problems for this much-anticipated continuation of Gene Roddenberry's Star Trek universe, available on Netflix in the UK.

Moreover, Burnham's past ties directly into the heart of Trek lore: orphaned, she was raised on Vulcan by Sarek (James Frain), Mr. Spock's father, and thus exhibits a fondness for logic and computer-like mind, despite her rounded earlobes.

The other show feels like a version of Star Trek created to cater to the immediate cultural moment in all the wrong ways.

Alexandre Lacazette was in the right place for the rebound but he could not keep his effort from sailing over the bar. Every game against Arsenal is always very tough, we knew very well what type of game we had to face.

With that said, all the other shows Netflix releases globally, including Riverdale and The Good Place, eventually end up on Netflix.

But, despite a traditionally Trekkian diverse cast that includes the first black, female lead in a Star Trek show, and many elements that Trek fans expect in their franchise, there's not much about Star Trek Discovery to lure the much needed new fans.

This can be forgiven, however, as we're being prepped to see their relationship tested during the stand-off with a Klingon battle fleet that dominates these two episodes.

Still, if that represents a fresh approach distribution-wise, where "Discovery" feels weakest is in the fundamental qualities that have defined the best "Trek" series - namely, the strength of the interplay among its characters.

Star Trek has returned to television more than a decade after the conclusion of Star Trek Enterprise, the last major outing on the small screen for Gene Roddenberry's iconic science fiction series.

Between its honorific open and close lies a modern theme which just drips Star Trek from every string pluck and gust of wind through a horn.

It won't run in tandem with the film franchise either - choosing instead to follow it's own ethos ten years before the original series is set. Based on the two-part Discovery premiere, the show has successfully made the jump to the modern mode of serialized storytelling, an approach that was mostly avoided in the previous Trek shows. The acting is good; there's room for improvement, and I'll be interested to see how the acting comes into focus when the visual effects aren't at the forefront.
