Despite being outfitted with some interesting wrinkles, Star Trek: Discovery is an unspectacular addition to the existing fleet of "Trek"-branded series. The result, creatively, makes for an awkward liftoff, one perhaps most notable for its commercial mission, which is to entice new subscribers to CBS All Access.

The opening hour had to hook audiences so completely that they'd be willing to follow the show to subscription VOD platform CBS All Access. In this respect, the Discovery premiere feels like a failure to me, albeit an entertaining and occasionally epic and ambitious failure.

Star Trek is best when it’s hopeful, but hope shines brightest amid horror. On some level, Discovery knows both of those things, and that’s why it’s a show I’m eager to keep watching.

It’s the moral murk that Burnham must wade through that gives Discovery its tantalizing possibilities.

Star Trek: Discovery, while commenting on today’s pessimistic political landscape, never wallows in despair. It’s characters still striving for the utopic ideals of Star Treks past.

Happily Star Trek: Discovery strikes a balance between what diehard Trekkies love about Roddenberry’s universe and what J.J. Abrams injected into its theatrical resurrection.

You respect the ambition of unspooling this story gradually, but the third episode also retroactively makes the two-part prologue feel even more overextended. This feels like a show struggling to find its heart. But at least Martin-Green gives it a pulse.

Listen up, Star Trek fans: sign up for your CBS All Access account now, because the most exciting and daring take on the franchise is happening there, and even if you don’t love it right out of the gate, it’s going to create conversations you won’t want to miss.

This is light years removed from being a perfect TV show, but it already shows signs of being a great one.
