Oriana Schwindt reporting for Variety:
I know that some are seeing this as a warning sign that the series is in trouble, but I disagree and am confident that that the bumps in the road are a good thing. The guys in charge of CBS were obviously wanting a Star Trek series to be the flagship show to launch CBS All Access with, but it sounds like the Star Trek: Discovery guys are continuously pushing back so that they can get the series right the first time. If anything, the lack of a specific time-slot being required on streaming services (unlike scheduled TV, which I've spoken about previously) sounds like it's working in their favour.
In all honesty, I'm far more than happy for them to have a few bumps in the road with some well-needed course corrections than for them to drive straight into the nearest black hole at maximum warp.
Fascinating. *raises an eyebrow*
