Star Trek Discovery will have cruel or conflicted humans.

According to AnnaLee over at ArsTechinca, the makers of the newest outing in the ST franchise have dedicated themselves to a more modern take on characterising their protagonists, straying from Gene Roddenberry’s ideals of a perfect, conflict free human society in which only Aliens make good antagonists.

Hardly a surprise - even the original crew needed conflict. Come one, Bones was a dick most of the time. And of course, Discovery certainly isn’t the first new series with more - human human characters than Gene imagined them.

Also going with the modern day style of TV: seasonal arcs in favour of Space Anomaly of the week. So - essentially it’ll be Deep Space 9? Or Enterprise Season4?
