Star Trek: Discovery Will Fix Continuity Errors

Star Trek: Discovery is a pretty enjoyable sci-fi show, thanks to great special effects and a great cast. However, some fans have taken issue with the CBS All Access program, due to some odd continuity issues between this show and the older ones. The series takes place 10 years before the first Star Trek and some of the issues have confused fans, but some of them will be addressed in season two, according to producer Aaron Herberts.

In Metro, Herberts explained that the second season of Discovery would reconcile with older fans of the series by fixing issues with continuity. The producer did point out how challenging the show can be, but there are plenty of Star Trek fans in the writing team, so things might get ironed out.

"We have ten years until the original series comes into play. It is a challenge creatively because we have lots of choices in terms of how do we reconcile this [Spore] Drive? This surrogate daughter of Sarek? How do we reconcile these things the closer we get to the original series? That's going to be a big discussion that we have in season two."

Continuity errors include the fact that the technology is more advanced than the original series, even though it's set 10 years before it. While it would be easy to say that the original show was set in the 60's, it looks like we will be getting a proper explanation soon. Fans are also hoping that they explain why Spock doesn't remember his adopted sister Michael Burnham.

Star Trek: Discovery airs on CBS All Access in the US, and Netflix in the UK and other countries.
