I rewatched the first two episodes of Star Trek: Discovery and the show plays better the second time around. I was even more impressed with the effects as I had time to concentrate on them more. Also, *some* of the things with the Klingons made more sense.
I still have issues with the depiction of the Klingons. Also, I don't like how continuity is all messed up with the advanced technology displayed on a show that is supposed to take place pre-Kirk, but I will deal with it.
In any event, this was the best first two hours of ANY Trek series. It’s not even close. It’s better than Encounter at Farpoint, Emissary, Caretaker and Broken Bow.
