I believe it was explicitly mentioned as being dangerous during TOS episode 'Day of the Dove' but was used anyways due to circumstances

Still not a casual thing as shown in Discovery
Come to think of it, why did they do site to site in the first place? There was no need to go to engineering by stealth. It's not like the shuttle had tight schedule to maintain.

I assume Lorca didn't want the other crew members to know he took Michael Burnham to engineering.

I thought the new "propulsion" system was ridiculous but somehow Trek fan/apologist almost won me over



TBH I didn't watch all of the Trek tech rationalization vid but enough to be satisfied they didn't pull this out of their rears

Nothing against Sonequa but sometimes supporting characters become popular and move to more prominence
Like Martin Sheen as the President in "The West Wing" maybe this show will refocus on the Captain
Unfortunately, next week's episode delves into Lorca's background probably revealing a irredeemable act/quality nullifying such a reordering of the character hierarchy of the show

Interesting video. But based on the just aired Episode 4's reveal of the "navigational requirements" of Spore Drive, I can see why the technology will not become a big hit with future Starfleet generations.

Wow...what a great episode...getting to explain a lot of the questions on tech and design and very star trek like with logic,problem solving and not just brute action

Lots of character development for Michael and exploration

I guess there is no doubt that the Captain Georgiou isn't making a surprise appearance in season 2, That was truly disgusting.

Yeah I was holding out hope that she might still be alive along with that T'kuvma klingon. Guess both are gone.

So how are they going to make this spore drive thing disappear at the end of the series? Def can't be canon if the spore drive actually exists all the way to the TNG/DS9/VOY future. That way Voyager would've been saved in no time even if there's only a few experimental ships still.

I had to rewind and read the subtitle again about that albino apparently eating the meat off Michelle Yeo's skull?! W T F!

Who the fudge came up with this BS really? Everything aside, of all the places to cannibalize meat, skull is the best they could come up with?!

Episode after episode they are hell bent on destroying the Klingons, lowering them to the level of some orc like creature... Someone must have watched too much LOTR when they were 5 y/o I bet.

One positive development, lens flare was almost non existant which made it bearable to watch.

The more I watch it the more I dislike the series.
This is not what Star Trek stands for, not what I was raised on.
Watching ST young I feel like I was always shown what was appropriate and what wasn't.
This series just threw out all the positive aspects out the window in favor of action/ratings.

Or they are just trying to show some more range in the Trek Universe. Personally, I find it refreshing to see the darker side of Starfleet. I can't imagine all of Starfleet were to righteous all the time.

The only thing I don't like is amount of Klingon dialogue. It's not really adding anything for me for the show for them to speaking in Klingon instead of English and I do find it odd they decided to redesign how a Klingon looks again.

Because the spore drive requires a living being to use and it was quite clear in the episode that the trammite did not "enjoy" it

What was disgusting? Eating flesh? You do know Klingon already ate live foods right?

You obviously didn't watch much star trek then.

Not to mention discovery predates all the other series except enterprise.
