I think they just went the easy and cheap route by writing a very generic "dark and gory Sci-Fi story line". Normally I don't go SJW, but Tilly and that white haired guy are most sexist and homophobic representation of characters I've seen in a movie. It makes the original series look enlightened. That's before the general "I wouldn't hire these people to work in a Macdonald's" feel the crew give off.
If it didn't have the Star Trek logo on, it wouldn't get a second season.
They definitely did try to chase the Game of Thrones trend by making making it dark and adding gore and sex. I am curious though about Hugh seeming homophobic? I mean I definitely think they could've written him to be more likeable but I never got the sense that it was an offensive representation.
Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.
