Star Trek: Discovery has had more downs than ups, but a couple of standout moments did remind us of the Star Trek universe we know and love. The best (so far) has to be the seventh episode of the series, "Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad".

Even though Star Trek: Discovery is a prequel to the original series, it's added quite a few new aliens and creatures to Star Trek's database. The most notable would be Saru (Doug Jones), a Kelpian with serious fear instincts and a strut like a gazelle supermodel. However, the original plan for Saru's look didn't include a butt-like nose and a lunchmeat-tinted face. It was more akin to something out of Pan's Labyrinth.
Last year, Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan director Nicholas Meyer perked the Spock ears of fans everywhere when he hinted that he was working on a new Star Trek project. Now, the Tribble's out of the bag. Meyer has shared news about this top-secret project, mostly because he's not sure if it will happen anymore.
Star Trek: Discovery's first season ended with the mother of all cliffhangers: the titular ship coming face to face with one of the living legends that is the USS Enterprise.

The finale of Star Trek: Discovery gave us a short glimpse at the most legendary ship in the entire Starfleet: the Enterprise, ten years before the original Star Trek television show. Befitting the different visual style of Discovery, the ship looks a little different than we remembered, but that apparently wasn't just for creative reasons.

One of the most noted, and most controversial, changes of Star Trek: Discovery was its shift away from the series' traditional monster/science-problem/God-starship of the week setup to a storytelling structure that, if not as tightly plotted as many prestige shows, was still pretty strongly serialised.
Going into Star Trek: Discovery, fans were told to expect something new. It would be dark. It would be modern. It would push the boundaries of where Star Trek had boldly gone before. Now that we're at the end of Discovery's first season, we know it did take a few steps in those directions - but every time it did, it retreated back the minute things got too uncomfortable.
