No HDR release for disc is disappointing

We will get it in a year as a new release :)

Of course it’s Burnham by herself in the artwork.

Sigh. After 5 seasons, do people still not know that the series… from its conception… was supposed to be about Burnham and HER journey. That was the original concept.

They know. It’s just that their only personality trait is being an a$$hole.

Maybe 7 or 8 years ago but not now. The official synopses each season talks about “the crew of the USS Discovery”

The overall five season arc of DSC is really Michael Burnham’s redemption arc. Like it or not, it seems appropriate packaging to me.

If Sonequa wasn’t a part of this show, there is, NO WAY, it would have lasted 5 seasons.

Why not?

Season 1-3 synopsis:
Follow the voyages of Starfleet on their missions to discover new worlds and lifeforms, and one Starfleet officer, Michael Burnham, who learns that to truly understand all things alien, she must first understand herself.

Season 4 synopsis:
Season four of Star Trek: Discovery finds Captain Burnham and the crew of the U.S.S. Discovery facing a threat unlike any they’ve ever encountered. With Federation and non-Federation worlds alike feeling the impact, they must confront the unknown and work together to ensure a hopeful future for all.
Season 5 synopsis:

The fifth and final season of Star Trek: Discovery finds Captain Burnham and the crew of the U.S.S. Discovery uncovering a mystery that will send them on an epic adventure across the galaxy to find an ancient power whose very existence has been deliberately hidden for centuries. But there are others on the hunt as well … dangerous foes who are desperate to claim the prize for themselves and will stop at nothing to get it.

Don’t know about you, but it certainly sounds like a focus on Burnham’s journey to me.

I’m old enough to remember when the show first came out. They never said that. That many people think they did, or claim they did, is odd but telling.

Well we do know before even casting was announced that “the lead and focus of the show would be a women who is not in command of the ship”.

“We’ve had six characters from the Captains point of view”, “putting a different character front and center will give the story a richer context”.

So while true what the earlier poster stated isn’t verbatim what was said from very near the get go. This is from Fuller, who also in part of the announcement states that” this is her journey”.

And if that doesn’t give you the hint that the show is focused on Burnham, and that the bulk of the show is her story. Well watching even the first season should make it absolutely clear.

Point of view is not the same as only important.

You’re old enough to remember seven (or even eight) years ago!? Well, grandpa/grandma, they did indeed say that. Repeatedly.

That many people think that they didn’t (or claim that they didn’t) is odd but telling.

The part about me being old enough was obviously a joke. We do live in a world where people think history began ten minutes ago, sadly.

But I think you misunderstand me: I remember full well what they said about the main character of the series. (I remember that it was supposed to be Number One at first.) But “main character” does not mean “character around whom *everything* revolves.” Every Trek series, every sci-fi series, has a main character, or maybe two or three. Discovery ended up taking that to a ridiculous level.

Look, I really like the finale- I like the whole season- and I’m not going to compare it to Enterprise’s finale just because of the tacked-on last scene, but to have Burnham as, essentially, the *only* character in the scene *when the other actors were all there and being filmed* really colored my impression of the whole thing.

This site doesn’t like links, but there are multiple sources from 2016, including Slashfilm and Entertainment Weekly, quoting Fuller and others.

I don’t think people would be this triggered by Burnham being the central focus of the show if she was a male character.

Oh, most definitely. I completely agree with you. They wouldn’t have any issues if Burnham was a white male character.

We just wanted all the characters to have there own episode, would have liked to explore Tilly’s character more including detma and Owo Ect

Or simply an interesting well written character?

Archer was a white male.

We’re not talking about Archer. We are talking about Burnham…if she was a white male, people wouldn’t have a problem with her.

It’s nothing to do with colour or if she’s male or female, most wanted to explore the other characters more.

Yeah, it has everything to do with her colour and gender.
And the show, before it was even cast, was about her. Not the crew. Burnham. That was the premise of the show. It was not like it was a secret.
If you wanted a show about the crew, then that would be SNW where they focus on giving the crew stories. Discovery was a show about Burnham’s journey.

The regular Blu-Ray/DVD is the season five cast poster.

Awesome i have bought every steelbook release so far and can’t wait to get the S5 steelbook. I do hope we get a 4K release at some point.

You won’t

So I already pre-ordered the S5 standalone Blu-Ray steelbook. Of course there would be an added bonus disc on the complete series set … I don’t really like “complete series sets” because there’s almost always disc damage. But, being a completist I ordered that set as well just for the disc. Take my money Paramount/CBS.

*sigh*

I will likely do the same.

It is really disappointing that the only show in 4K is Strange New Worlds. On UHD disc.

Now that I have a 4K tv I want TOS in 4k, and I’m still waiting for 2k Deep Space Nine and Voyager.

Loved Season Five. Thanks trekmovie for the announcement and the links.

Since the Prodigy debacle happened with P+ taking it off the site, it gave me a big appreciation for physical media I haven’t had in over a decade. So I started to buy all the movies and shows since last year and now own all the classic shows (TOS-ENT) and all 13 movies. I have been holding off buying any of the newer shows until they have ended. I won’t lie, I’m conflicted on getting Discovery because I just haven’t been much of a fan as much as I wanted to be. I did like the last season but still highly mixed on it overall.

But I’ve gone this far so it looks like I will be picking it up. I’ve turned into a completest lol.

The Blu-ray link goes to Lower Decks season four.

Is there a chance they will include the Disco Star Trek Shorts in the complete set? If not, this would be a significant oversight, as many of these shorts are crucial to the Discovery storyline and legacy. For instance, without watching ‘Calypso,’ viewers will never understand the full context of the final episode!

Let’s hope so!
