Now, I'm not a hater. I can't honestly 'hate' on a program that I don't watch. That's unfair, and methinks that there's far too much of the kind of incendiary tripe on the Information Superhighway in this ultra-modern era.
I will admit that I did watch the free first installment that aired on television back when the show premiered before warping over to the CBS All Access (or whatever it's called now). While I will say that the show had some impressive production quality, I just wasn't smitten with the characters or the overall set-up (we've changed the Klingons yet again?), so I didn't follow. I may pick it up on DVD at some point in my golden years to explore what I've missed, but at this point I've no overwhelming compunction to check it out further.
Still, as a die-hard SciFi enthusiast, I always appreciate quality production work that goes into a television or cinematic property. Sets fascinate me as designers and builders go to such incredible lengths to elevate even the most mundane elements of, say, a bridge to the point of giving viewers something downright fascinating to view.
So if you want to explore the production elements of Discovery a bit further, I was alerted the other day to a fabulous 360-degree set-up over on the official Star Trek site. These programming officials have crafted together a handful of 'views' from the ship's bridge, mess hall, and more that are definitely worth a look. As I said above, you can see the steps they've taken to make the world of the 23rd Century come alive visually for audiences today, and I suspect you may want to spend a few moments in that era today or tomorrow.

As always, thanks for reading ... and live long and prosper!
