The lightness and easygoing chemistry among the "Discovery" cast present a stark contrast with the characters of "Discovery." In the first few episodes [cnet.com], the show has turned Burnham into a shunned mutineer, introduced a suspicious skipper in Capt. Gabriel Lorca (Jason Isaacs) and given us an arrogant and snappy scientist in Lt. Paul Stamets (Anthony Rapp).
It's the darkness of the characters and the background, which is set amid a war with the Klingons, as well as potentially continuity-bending aspects like Burnham being the adoptive daughter of Sarek, Spock's dad, that have some longtime Trekkies nervous.
If you're among those worried about the changes brought on by "Discovery," the producers have some advice for you: Just wait a little bit.
"We are canon," executive producer Alex Kurtzman said in an interview Saturday. "You'll have to be patient with us."
Kurtzman addressed the notion that the show would be grittier, assuring fans that the core themes of Star Trek [cnet.com] remain.
Is it Game of Thrones in Space?
