All flash and little substance. The first 2 episodes tried to establish the start of a war with the Klingons*. It only succeeded in starting a war with itself. The first hour was promising and enjoyable but fell apart in the second act. One positive note, the lead actress, Sonequa Martin-Green, is tremendous in her portrayal as a human raised by Vulcans.
As my duty as a Trekkie, I will continue to watch with the hope that this series finds its legs but I have a feeling that they have been sliced off by a bat’leth in this first Klingon* War. I will report back with my findings.
*still not sure what those were but they were not Klingons.
