Over the weekend we took a closer look at the new 32nd-century refit to the USS Discovery, which introduced new systems and features to the ship, inside and out. While she didn’t appear in the latest episode, one could imagine that the always opinionated engineer Jett Reno might have some views on the upgrades. Imagine no longer: Jett Reno vents her views in a new official Star Trek log on Instagram.
Programmable matter with duct tape?
Here is Reno’s official personal log (voiced by actress/comedian Tig Notaro):

Holodecks on the disco
If you listened closely to Reno’s various issues with new features of the refit Discovery, there was one she did approve of, saying:
New holodecks are cool, though. Risa sounds good right about now… Me. A beach. No one around as far as the eye can see.
That’s right, the USS Discovery has holodecks, the TNG-era technology that allows the characters to create virtual environments for training, and entertainment. The big question is: have they finally solved the problem of holodeck malfunctions that plagued ships in the 24th century, including creating rogue characters like Moriarity and Badgey.
A closer look at the Refit
The StarTrekLogs Instagram also offered up this closer look at the USS Discovery-A, if you stitch together two posts.
New episodes of Star Trek: Discovery premiere on Thursdays on CBS All Access in the U.S. and on CTV Sci-Fi Channel in Canada, where it’s also available to stream on Crave. Episodes are available on Fridays internationally on Netflix.
