Critics Consensus

The second season of Discovery successfully -- if stubbornly -- cleans up the problematic storylines of Trek past while still effectively dramatizing new takes on the lore.

Critic Reviews for Star Trek: Discovery Season 2

All Critics (28) | Top Critics (7)

A fun, nostalgic, energetic re-entry that makes up for that sometimes bloated bore of a first season.

Top Critic

Fast-moving, exciting, building on what went before. But the thing that concerns me is that the writers seem very hung up on how their show relates to the rest of Star Trek.

Jan 23, 2019 | Full Review…

Series two might not have that dizzying ambition, but on the evidence of the first three episodes it's still never less than thoroughly enjoyable.

Jan 18, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

There's a lot of set-up packed into this premiere, and for now the direction set is worth traveling.

Jan 18, 2019 | Rating: B | Full Review…

This season sees the crew discover whether there's still material to be squeezed out of the original series.

Aug 22, 2019 | Rating: 7.5/10 | Full Review…

Star Trek has never adequately applied its own philosophy of IDIC-'Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations'-to gender and sexuality. Discovery attempts to rectify that.

Apr 23, 2019 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

Discovery is working as hard as it can to shake off the stigma of its gritty, unfocused first season and bring fans back in, but perhaps at the cost of some of its personality.

Mar 21, 2019 | Full Review…

With a course correction and a potential spin-off, this new age of Star Trek finally achieves escape velocity from the old.

Apr 19, 2019 | Full Review…

Season two uses fan favorite characters to bolster its strong cast without relying too heavily on the franchise's existing lore.

Mar 26, 2019 | Full Review…

Tilly, meanwhile, was just as delightful as always... Stamets might want her to "say fewer things," but I don't!

Mar 21, 2019 | Full Review…

I enjoyed it precisely because it was an episode of Star Trek: Discovery and not a slavish attempt to revisit old Trek favorites.

Mar 21, 2019 | Full Review…

I have no idea where we're going, or when, or why.

Audience Reviews for Star Trek: Discovery: Season 2

  • 13h ago
    Example of truly terribly written television. The writers have no idea of dramatic structure or intent. Kurtzman and company are marching Star Trek right into the grave.

    This Star Trek is, without a doubt, the worst show ever. Rest assured that I was on the Internet within minutes, registering my disgust throughout the world.
  • 3d ago
    I quite liked the first season but I'm not even going to finish this one because of the identity politics and blatant shaming of men. They really doubled down on that.
  • 3d ago
    Another great series ruined by SJW politics.
  • 3d ago
    CBS seems to be confusing "Empowerment" with narcissism.
  • 3d ago
    Sooo meh! And the identity politics are annoying.
  • 4d ago
    Space is no longer safe from the politics of SJW and feminazis. This has nothing to do with Star Trek. It's just SJWs in space.
  • 4d ago
    Caution, minor spoilers ahead, not that it matters. SJW trash that tarnishes the legacy of a great franchise while missing the whole point. Michael Burnham in the tradition of the latest wave feminism (see Rae, Captain Marvel etc) is the perfect creature. Able to out-think, out-power and out-hug it out with anyone, she declares in one of second season's episodes, that there is only one thing to do, blow up the ship, at which point a shadow of a captain goes uh-hun, let's do it (#justtrustwomen), and noone even questions it. Not even after that plan falls flat on it's face. As the first season made a point of proving, even when Burnham is wrong, she is actually right. Trying to watch the second season was actually painful. Spock, Data, Seven, Odo, all were lovable and in some way believable characters because they actually had some vulnerabilities. As we admired their incredible abilities we empathized with their struggle to be a part of everyday life, to find their humanity. Not Burnham. Just like Rae, she has it all from day one. Akin to season one and the anomaly that is Michelle Yeoh's Empress Georgiou. Lorca is villainized for his duplicity and deceit, which results in 1/1,000,000,000,000th of the body count of Georgiou's Empress but she is accepted into the fold and he is cast off the series as a villain. A Klingon woman saves and runs the empire challenging all accepted social order. All men in this franchise (with the occasional backbone by Saru of all "people") are weak, deeply flawed, indecisive and always on the wrong. So while we are at it, why not take a quick scroll into the future and the delta quadrant and explain how the Borg Queen was truly justified for all she did, and in reality gave a different kind of (communist - sorry AOC, socialist) freedom to the delta quadrant that is just too hard for us unevolved core fans to understand. Talk about needing some fourth wave shesplaining.... child... pleeeease. No mas! Really. You can pack it up now. I wonder if there is another show with a bigger gap between fan rating and critic rating than this one.

    It improved over season 1.

    As a person who grew up with Star Trek, this is NOT Star Trek. How is this still in production?
