I liked this a lot, I also like Discovery a lot particularly the last season but I like them for different reasons.  The old school episodic nature of New Worlds is to its benefit and we get to know the crew better that other new Treks also Pike does have magnificent hair.  Final episode was great but the new Captain Kirk while gone isn’t no Shatner.  Bring on season 2

Bloody great, a Nu Trek for me to love with no obvious flaws to overlook!

That final episode's a corker...


I've just watched that final episode for the fourth time and I think it's one of the best Trek episodes ever - has nobody else felt the love? Please don't say I'm alone in this (as well)!

I'm conflicted, Balance of Terror is one of my favourite episodes of any Trek. This reworking is interesting, but I wish they'd left it alone. I had warmed to Peck's Spock but I'm not keen on this third version of Kirk. Say what you want about Shatner's acting, but this new guy doesn't have that twinkle in his eye.

Still, best new Star Trek since Voyager's occasional good episode.
You may quote me on that.
