Hitting subscription channel CBS All Action (and Netflix in the UK), Star Trek: Discovery introduces a new take on the Star Trek franchise. This week, Christian Cawley and James McLean investigate the new world, which takes place within the old continuity, and introduces characters such as Michael Burnham, Saru, some brand new Klingons…. and, um, Sarek.
Why is Star Trek so welded to its established history? Does the new approach (character-led storytelling) work? And why did we wait two episodes for Jason Isaac to appear? These, and other questions, may (or may not) be answered in this week’s BeyondKasterborous!
