Watched episide 4, that was great. Back on track after episode 3. Some real emotion in places, acting is done well and the story is building up nicely.
This really hit home in the last episode when got ambushed by a D7 class battlecruiser which looked absolutely nothing like a D7 class battlecruiser, it's like they just Googled Klingon ships from TOS and then did their own thing haha. I mean what was the actual point of trying to make the Discovery look vaguely like a federation ship when you're not going to do it for ship designs that have already been established, it's stupid >.>
This is one of the most annoying things about the show for me. If they'd had made Discovery a post-Nemesis show, then they could have come up with whatever ship designs they liked and it would have worked. But you can't just start using already well established ship designations and have them be completely unrecognisable.
It would also do away with all those nagging questions like, if Star Fleet came up with an instant jump spore drive this long ago, why did no one think to make one when Voyager was stuck in the Delta quadrant... or indeed why has it never been mentioned again in any future timeline at any point...
