I'v been pretty quiet due to the situation here (#whatishappeninginMyanmar - namely civil war) but I am huge Star Trek Fan. I downloaded every single ST series before the last big Internet shut off here.
I agree that most of the new Star Trek doesn't seem Star Trek-ish at all, with the exception of Lower Decks. Yes it is a cartoon and yes it is silly, but out of all the new shows (Discovery, Picard) I've found that this one is the most Star Trek out of them all.
Anyways, I know many people didn't really watch it, but I suggest you give it a light hearted spin. Just my 2c.
