The acting, the characters, the melding of Star Trek lore. This is quickly becoming a contender for best ST series ever and season one isn't done yet.

@quark “a contender for best ST series ever” I am too old then. For me DISCO is a generic action show. It does not ask difficult questions.

I've seen four lights you people wouldn't believe. I live decades in the span of twenty minutes. Darmok and Jalad at Tanagra. I watched proving in court that an android is legally a sentient being with rights and freedoms. All those TNG moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.

@kmicu I agree those are some of the greatest moments in TNG, a couple others in DS9 with dark choices and some timey-wimey plots in Voyager. DISCO hasn't passed these points yet, and we don't need to compare really. I'm just saying given the strong start I think it will be one of the greats not one of the dregs for sure.

I feel they are asking difficult questions about humanity, emotion, expectations of society, race and religion. But we'll see where it goes.
