Why Star Trek: Discovery might seem like it's violating Star Trek canon


There’s been a ton of excitement about new CBS sequence Star Trek: Discovery now – a exhibit that will inform the tale of the USS Discovery crew about 10 many years in advance of the gatherings of Star Trek: The Original Sequence. Now showrunner Aaron Hartsarb is adding to that excitement with a warning for enthusiasts. 

The thing for the audience to maintain in intellect as they digest the exhibit is that there may be an episode or a second the place it seems like we’re violating canon,” he tells SFX. “They have to have patience, because what we’ll conclude up carrying out in a further episode is showing them how we are finding about it. So what I would inquire from the audience is to consume this sequence as you would a novel and not make conclusions based on a chapter, or on sentences in a individual chapter. This is extensive-arc storytelling and we are carrying out things for a purpose.”

“Sometimes it could possibly experience like we’re flirting with controversy, but we have a way about it. [If persons] binge the exhibit they’ll see how we are generating these designs and how we are shelling out things off,” adds Hartsarb.
