SFX Hot Topic: What do you think of Star Trek Discovery?

TODO alt text

Unless you've been exiled to the Klingon prison world of Rura Penthe it can't have escaped your notice that there's a brand new Star Trek series on our screens (and if you have been exiled to Rura Penthe get back to the dilithium mines, slacker).

The opening two episodes of Star Trek Discovery dropped this week, giving us our first taste of the adventures of Lt Cmdr Michael Burnham. We want to know what you made of Trek's return to television - is it a worthy addition to the final frontier franchise? How does it compare to the other shows - and JJ Abrams' big screen reboot?

Did you find the story and characters compelling? Did you like the design? Was there too much gabbing in Klingon? Not enough of that cool crewmember with the Daft Punk helmet? Did Doug Jones' Lt Saru steal the show for you?

Tell us your thoughts – via interstellar mind meld or more conventional means – and you could be immortalised in a future issue of SFX magazine.

You can email your Star Trek Discovery opinions and predictions to sfx@futurenet.com.
