      83% 18 Reviews Tomatometer 19% 50+ Ratings Audience Score Created by Bryan Fuller and Alex Kurtzman for CBS All Access, the story of "Star Trek: Discovery" begins roughly a decade before Captain Kirk's five-year mission -- as portrayed in the original "Star Trek" from the 1960s -- and a century before the events of "Star Trek: Enterprise." The series follows the crew of the USS Discovery as they encounter new worlds and civilizations, delving into familiar themes and expanding upon an incident that has been talked about within the franchise's universe, but never fully explored.

      Emily W This show just get worse and worse. Don’t waste you time. Watch strange new worlds or any other Star Trek instead. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 04/16/24 Full Review Jeff R Oh my! They should of ended the series after season 2. This is some the most cringe worthy writing in the franchise history. The dialog is so forced and so unnatural, my wife and I were in tears, of pain. Action Saru? Really? Who came up with that? He is the least action in the whole series. I'm sorry but compared to Strange New Worlds... This series and season is not in the same universe in terms of acting, dialog and story telling. How can that be? Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 04/16/24 Full Review Megan M (Mildly spoiler-y review ahead.) This season is so frustrating, even just three episodes in. The writing is egregiously bad. The writers just need Character to do Thing, and they don't care if it makes any sense. They needed to make the new first officer seem smart, so they have the other crew members do stupid things so he can tell them the right answer. They need them to follow clues to make the galactic scavenger hunt plot work, so they have the guy with the answer just not give it to them, and they accept that. They need the smuggler to plant the tracking device, so they have her show up undetected and unrecognized at the caves, even though the entire crew knows who they are and have been tracking their movements for days, and this crew member looks directly at the smuggler. (And if the crew doesn't know what they look like, that raises even more questions! Why haven't their mugshots been show in the crew briefings? Oh gods, I bet the writers have never even heard of crew briefings.) They create obstacles just so the crew have a heroic thing to do, regardless of whether it makes sense for that thing to happen. I am already worn out by the mediocrity of this season and I have no expectations of improvement for the rest of it. In the end, the Discovery crew will emerge victorious over the Big Bad Threat, the MacGuffin will be secured in whatever their future version of the Daystrom Institute is, and the series will end with a whimper. Good riddance, I say. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 04/15/24 Full Review Margaret M I love Star Trek, but am so glad this is the last season of Discovery. More melodramatic drivel among characters I don't care about, except for Sarou and the new Captain character. I share his annoyance with Burnham. The other ship characters are incredibly smug and self-righteous. Sick of all the overly emotional, unprofessional dialog; the crew sounds like they are in junior high school, not like Star Fleet officers. Used to like Tilly, now I am sick of her acting like a tween - for goodness sake, it is time to grow up and talk and act like an adult. She is also too overweight to be a Star Fleet officer. I'm only watching to finish what I started. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 04/14/24 Full Review Andrew P Season 5 goes from bad to worse. Like other Star Trek shows, it can be campy, and over the top. Unlike others though, it takes itself way too seriously. So all the viewer is left with is a sense of arrogance, especially by the Burnam character. The only good thing about the whole show was the Michelle Yeoh character, who is long gone. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 04/14/24 Full Review Will C These are getting worse and worse every season. Season 1 was great, but since then the boring poorly acted badly written story just loses 10-15% each time. Not sure I can even finish this current season. The stories used to be exciting and grand but now it’s just a bunch of people spending far too much time on character development but not in a good way… the balance has been off since season 2 but I’ve stuck with it til now hoping it would improve 👎 Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 04/14/24 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Neal Justin Minneapolis Star Tribune There are some clever references to past series during these last 10 episodes, but they're reminders that "Discovery" was never in their league. Apr 10, 2024 Full Review Dylan Roth Observer This season has a brisk pace and the sense of fun that in the past has been crushed under the weight of grave galactic stakes. Apr 3, 2024 Full Review Ryan Britt Inverse The Trek series that relaunched the franchise is going out on an upbeat note. Mar 14, 2024 Full Review Joshua Tyler Giant Freakin Robot It's like watching the movie Step-Brothers without any of the jokes. Rated: 2/5 Apr 5, 2024 Full Review Alberto Carlos Espinof Although it struggles to give any sense of real danger, its amazing visuals, effective script, and sense of adventure will have us glued to the screen. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 3.5/5 Apr 5, 2024 Full Review Andrew Bloom The Spool As with The Original Series, this final run promises to represent the show as it was, good and bad, as Discovery makes its exit. That feels right somehow. Apr 2, 2024 Full Review Read all reviews
