    I'm still trying to slog through the first season. Everyone is just so...charmless. In the original, Next Gen, DS9, even Voyager and Enterprize, there were multiple characters I found charming and wanted to get know. Not this series. I just can not make myself give a damn whether any of them live or die. It makes watching episodes really slow.

I thought Lorca was fun. He's like one of the guest star captains from the original series or TNG who goes crazy...but we get to follow him for 15 episodes or so.

And the mirror universe empress and L'Rell were fun. And I like their take on Sarek...instead of being a pompous vulcan like T'Pol on Enterprise Sarek to me he seems like a guy who is more laid back than most Vulcans. He fell in love and married outside his race so to me unlike every other Vulcan we see...he knows love is illogical and can make you do silly things and he seems much more open to human foibles. (honestly he seems like a better father to Burnham than he does to Spock).

But yeah the people we're supposed to follow every week are kind of a drag. Saru gets better IMO as time goes on. Tilly, Burnham, Stamets and his husband are all pretty tedious though. I like Ash but I don't see what more they can do with the character going forward.
