Gosh, this show looks expensive. I really enjoyed the first episode, though. I dunno what my opinion is worth because I'm a relative newcomer to the franchise, but I've always thought that the Klingons were uptight buffoons. Discovery's Klingons are much more imposing. Maybe 20% of that is this new jagged, hairless aesthetic. I'm not going to insist they recreate every detail with period specificity, otherwise they'd be using bleep bloop light bright consoles.
The problem with a franchise this long and venerated is that everyone who puts on the uniform is measured against those who have done the same. I'm eager to see if this crew can meet that standard, but it's off to a fine start. We've really only had time to get to know two of them, so far.
