  1. I’m sure Paramount+ will be pleased to see this ‘investment’ come to an end, it has struggled along on two cylinders when it should have had eight, but that’s the Star Trek universe in the 21st century, and unfortunately it’s not alone in the sci-fi franchise business. Hopefully the U.S. studios will get their mojo back.

    1. I struggled through the first season and then gave it away in the second, so interesting to hear that you felt it continued to struggle along. Discovery left a bad taste in my mouth regarding new Star trek releases and it wasn’t until recently I tried Strange New Worlds, which i’m really enjoying. They seem to have the formula back for this instalment.
