No inspiration, NOT Star Trek
Star trek is about inter species politics, technological gap, boundaries, exploration and ethics. Star trek is more like a projected future which portrays the best version of humanity possible. There is no place for dark future here as the core of this series.
Discovery is based on the original timeline. This series is supposed to happen after star trek enterprise. The technologies were a bit advanced for the timeline.
The show failed to focus on earth's people, about the federation, dialogues that explain the psychology of the characters. Clearly, the directors of the series don't know star trek.
The vulcan logic,
The klingon strength ,are all ignored comfortably in this show.
The humans are shown as depressed warmongers
Klingons live by their honour. They aren't bald shiny orcs. These were unlike any klingons in the previous series. They are so different ( In a bad way).
This show is pure graphical entertainment, no story, not prequel - like at all. There was no life to the story. Fan made star trek is way better than discovery.
This show is a disgrace for the whole star trek franchise. The directors should back off if they don't understand Star Trek. I hope season 2 is not this grim.
