New 'Star Trek' Series Makes Massive Science Blunder

Spoilers, but of the set-up variety. The idea they're criticizing sounds dumb and non-Trek anyway.

So the ship's drive is powered by magic mushrooms, and is faster than anything they had even in TNG? Yeah, I'm not regretting missing out on this.

I really don't know what they're thinking. That concept might sell in Farscape and could even be done well in the right setting, but it's so not Trek.

They probably wanted to do something different. It doesn't sound so great on paper, I'll tell you that.

The "Spore Drive" was originally a concept that was part of a pitch for a Trek series based around a "Rescue" ship. Every ship in the fleet would have been given a stock of these special mushrooms which the Rescue Ship could use to jump to should the ship get in trouble and call for help.

Given how ludicrous the idea sounded I'm surprised it was kept. That series would have been placed timeline wise, post Star Trek Nemesis and would have made more sense in that setting. Post the Dominion War and a second major attempt to invade the federation by the Borg and the destruction of Romulas. A darker Starfleet, more on edge and more likely to shoot first ask questions later would have made much more sense than anything I have seen in Discovery so far ..

The show was aptly named .. because Star Trek Discovery is most definitely a STD ..

Found this by accident on Youtube but thought it was funny. At a convention, Marina Sirtis explains Deanna Troi's accent(s).
