Its not nearly as bad, or good, as most of these reviews are saying. Its just a uninspiring, by the book TV episode. it doesn't do anything new or fresh with the plot or characters. Its just a dumb filler episode. 5/10
This show does something that the Walking Dead hasn't been able to do since season 4, make zombies scary. Sure there is room for improvement, no show is perfect, but there is a good foundation to build around here.
You can see the sudden and dramatic shift from creating a quality show in season one to using the show to push a Leftist narrative in season two amd the show seriously suffers from it. While the over the top violence and action is still really good, the woke feminist influence in season 2 really hurt the writing quality. They seemed more concerned with making the Russians, the alt-right, and Christian fundamentalists the bad guys even though then with crafting a story that actually made sense.
Not only wouldn't the Vulcans fire first, them being PACIFISTS and all, the Klingons aren't cowards they wouldn't run they would attack. This show got the Vulcans wrong, Sarek all wrong, the Klingons, and the Federation wrong. That's impressive, to show just how much they do not understand the Star Trek universe. Its sci-fi dream for people that don't like sci-fi. It's cheesy space drama with a cheap star trek paint job.
If not for her character this show would be much more enjoyable. One of the most annoying characters ever created. Which is weird cause she started off Fine and Kathrine is awesome, so it's not the actress. Some of these reviews though crack me up, smh. It's typical, unoriginal CW young adult drama, not Shakespeare people. Lets cool it with the 10 star reviews, lol.
