Ruminations on TV Shows, Comics, And Music
The Star Trek Movies era was a delight for long time fans who hadn't seen their beloved cast in a decade. And while the first movie is A Chore to sit through, The Wrath Of Khan began a new, self-aware, and sometimes deliberately silly era of Star Trek.
For this season, we're going to spend the first half focused on Spock. He goes missing in the Motion Picture universe AND he was already missing in the Discovery timeline, so it's fun to see various crews trying to track him down.
We also spend some time with the other first officers, T'Pol and Saru.
The real story of this series, though, is that it's the end of our voyages with Discovery for a looooooooong time. Also, the cast of The Original Series (and Movies) is going to be seen less frequently going forward. Don't be sad, though, they'll be flashed back to several times in the continuity as reference points for some of the more modern shows.
