With so much choice available to television audiences, many might shrug off Star Trek's return to the small screen.Fans of Star Trek, however, have a different reason to celebrate. It also doesn't hurt that the first two episodes took a swipe at Donald Trump (make Klingons great again!) or that Star Trek tends to reflect the greater concerns humanity is grappling with. "Discovery" is especially appealing because it boldly goes where no Trek has gone before."Discovery" has to tread through a minefield of trivia from no fewer than five separate TV series, over 700 episodes, 13 motion pictures and hundreds of novels, lest it go off Trek scripture.As to whether "Discovery" will become essential viewing like its predecessors, time will tell, but Star Trek's track record of seven seasons per series (mostly) affords the show plenty of time to shake out the kinks and win hearts and minds.
