What makes Discovery different from other Star Trek series?
Star Trek fans are used to the series presenting a utopian future, where humanity has come together to live in peace and prosperity. However, the Discovery series presents a darker side to the Federation, where political tensions are ever-present. Additionally, the series also focuses more on the characters' backstories rather than their space adventures.
While many Star Trek series focus on the idea that humanity can overcome any obstacle by coming together, Discovery presents a future where humanity is struggling to survive. The series is also darker and more violent than other Star Trek series, which may alienate some fans.
The Star Trek: Discovery series has divided opinion among fans of the franchise. While some praise the production's innovation, others criticize it for moving away from elements already established by the public.
One of the main criticisms is that the series focuses too much on war, while previous films and series in the franchise have always tackled deeper themes, such as the question of humanity and our place in the universe. Another negative point raised by fans is the look of the series, which they consider too artificial.
However, despite the criticism, Star Trek: Discovery managed to win a large number of viewers and became one of the most watched series today.
It is worth remembering that the first season of the series was shown in Brazil on the pay-TV channel Warner Channel and can be watched in full through the Looke streaming service. The second season is currently showing.
Despite the criticism, Star Trek: Discovery managed to conquer a large number of viewers and became one of the most watched series today.
For those unfamiliar, Star Trek is an American science fiction franchise that follows the adventures of the United Federation of Planets crew on their starship, the Enterprise.
