Much like the series it followed, Star Trek: Discovery was (is still being) used to launch a new network, this time CBS All Access. But a lot had changed since the days of Enterprise, namely the reimagined Battlestar Galactica (created by Trek veteran Ronald D. Moore) which pushed the limits of what science fiction could be on television. Moore’s new show was a saga, which spanned years, not mere episodes. Could Trek do something similar? As the series unfolds, we’re all getting to watch and see. Led by Sonequa Martin-Green as the main character, Cmdr. Michael Burnham, Discovery is wedged between ST:E and TOS in the timeline, until … well I don’t want to spoil it for you.
