Star Trek: Discovery returned back to our screens earlier this month and in anticipation I put together a Top 5 of things I was looking forward to being further developed following the mid-season hiatus. Star Trek: Discovery grows from strength to strength despite my concerns. It may not play as Trek for hardcore fans and it has a few flaws that need to be ironed out but it proved one of the more entertaining shows making their debut last year and I look forward to further adventures.

I am super pleased to have contributed another Top 5 to Heavy in what is so far turning out to be monthly thing. I wish I could be more prolific but alas the day job keeps me busy. To check out the post click here and please feel free to leave a comment there if you want.

Heavy is an independent magazine and website that is all about the music and specifically heavy music and supporting the Australian music scene in general. Fortunately for me they do cover film as well and I have been fortunate to have a few things published there.

  1. I watched the original, with Captain Kirk, and some episodes with The Borg (I like the Borg) in the later series. But I was never a big fan. Jason Isaacs is usually a reliable villain, so his take on being the captain might be interesting.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. I think I only watched a couple of the original ST’s before I went on tour with Nimoy. And I am glad it worked out that way because I could appreciate Leonard more as a complete actor than as Spock. Since then I have watched several of the original series, but hardly any of the series that followed.
    Nice review again Lloyd. I will try to watch some of these episodes based on your review.

      1. I will. I worked a play that had Patrick Stewart and several other members of Next Generation cast, Fine actors.
        I can agree that the original had a charm of its own. The simplicity of the sets etc., relied more on the writing than the FX,s.
