    > How could the fans be putting Discovery down when the critics and practically everyone else loved the show so much that when Discovery aired last year, CBS made tons of money and broke records for viewers and subscriptions. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing.

    Critics praise so many things that fans dislike – but I suppose 50 critic reviews say more about a show than a million fanvotes.

    After two seasons I still don’t care about the characters in STD. The story is a complete mess, and they are constantly trying to correct it with retraoactive continuity. Another big flaw is that it is humorless. All previous ST shows had great humoristic interactions, for example Odo and Quark. At least The Orville tries to be humorous, and sometimes succeeds. And The Orville also has the social commentary from the old series, and does it quite cleverly at times.

    I think the Orville is a clever and occasionally funny show, whereas STD is a convoluted humorless mess with awesome visuals. If only the best elements of those two would have been merged into a single series, we would have had the best ST ever.

    People compare the two shows not because they both take place in space and feature space ship battles. You’d have to be very gullible to believe that. The two are compared, since Star Trek Discivery is the latest show in the long running series, and The Orville is a show paying homage to the original series.
    Of course they’re going to be compared. The Orville is literally written and directed by a Star Trek fan. It just so happens that an homage does a better job at being Star Trek than an actual show utilizing the intellectual property.

    STD is a good show and a terribly awful Star Trek
