so that makes it a social statement? Even the 60s show had a black female character. The captain is still a fucking white male and has a lot of screen time.

Fuller had publicly called for Star Trek to return to television for years, particularly because of its impact on minority groups, as he explained, "I couldn't stop thinking about how many black people were inspired by seeing Nichelle Nichols on the bridge of a ship. I couldn't stop thinking about how many Asian people were inspired by seeing George Takei and feeling that gave them hope for their place in the future. I wanted to be part of that representation for a new era."

By June 2016, Fuller had met with several actors, and said that "we want to carry on what Star Trek does best, which is being progressive. So it's fascinating to look at all of these roles through a colorblind prism and a gender-blind prism". A month later, Kadin clarified that the series would feature minority, female, and LGBTQ characters. In August, Fuller said the series would feature "about seven" lead characters, and would star a lieutenant commander, rather than a starship captain like previous Star Trek series, to be played by a non-white actress. He said the series would also include more alien characters than other Star Trek series, and would feature at least one openly gay character. Fuller, who is gay himself, had been determined to see this happen since receiving hate mail while working on Voyager when a character on that show was rumored to be coming out as gay. By this time, Fuller had discussed the series' casting with Mae Jemison, the first black woman in space (who made a cameo appearance in an episode of The Next Generation).

Fuller anticipated casting announcements in October 2016, but none had been made by the end of that month. The majority of the series main characters were believed to have been cast by then, but no actress had been cast for the series' lead role. This was a source of "some internal stress" at CBS. Several African American and Latina actresses were being looked at for the role, with CBS "not seeking a huge star and [preferring] a fresh face for the part." In October, the cast was believed to include "a female admiral, a male Klingon captain, a male admiral, a male adviser and a British male doctor", with one of those male leads played by an openly gay actor.

whatever. the show isn't preachy or anything. and it is true that Trek has always been 'progressive', that was Gene Roddenberry's vision from the start.

It was hyped as SJW centric Star Trek.

And then it was as if Euron Greyjoy showed up.

I agree, they when a bit far with the "firsts" in casting. It's part of the times.

I think a lot of it from the original showrunner Bryan Fuller, who was fired ... errr ... resigned to do other stuff. So the first group of episodes was his story. And the episodes were hit and miss.

This episode clearly throw Discovery back into canon. Very well done.

It's serialized so you'll need to watch all of it. And it's just 9 episodes or so thus far.
