Maybe some day I'll binge-watch (yikes!) all twenty-nine; and stop after episode two. (I wish CBS All Access would make the series more "accessible".)
This talk reminds me of a piece I posted on August 2, of 2017:
Star Trek: Discovery
Today, on the Toronto Star's website:
Star Trek: Discovery was delayed to protect quality, says producer
Which, based on many, many precedents, could very well translate as: Nobody has a vision, except the show's first executive producer (Brian Fuller), but he was turfed because a committee with a new vision came along, and many people were replaced, with new people taking over who have no clue as to what Star Trek is about.
A real cynic might say that the line from new Star Trek: Discovery executive producer Alex Kurtzman is code for: "It's a dog, folks, but we can't admit that to you."
