Discovery devolved…

“…what began as agreat work of feminist SF soon devolved into a reactionary mess. The rot began to set in when a moment of intellectual arrogance compounded by bizarre feelings of parental attachment resulted in Martin-Green’s character murdering an alien religious figure […] Since then, Star Trek: Discovery has  indulged every right-wing fantasy from the moral necessity of torture through to the inevitability of what is effectively metaphorical racial holy war.”
