That’s because, legalities aside, it IS jj Trek.
You can’t reconcile the number of changes made without changing the one thing they claim is consistent with TOS, being the prime universe.
- Completely different Klingons
- Tech and ships WAY too advanced
- Spore drive
- The protagonist being Spock’s “step sister”???
- Unheard of species
- The alternate universe, aka the I.S.S. Discovery, is the antithesis of these changes as well
I’ve accepted this as jj Trek and sleep comfortably, not because my iSelect is an awesome mattress…no …I sleep comfortable because I know the real Prime universe is unadulterated left alone for its stories to be told through paperback.
