Pretty much an entirely different show now, and I feel one that is totally lacking in it's own self-confidence.
I was really underwhelmed by Season 3. It was a chance to settle in and find their own identity after 2 seasons drastically different in tone and quality, but it never quite clicked. Hopefully now that Burnham is Captain this show settles into some sort of long term groove
Same, reminiscent of TOS uniforms but modern and sleek. Honestly really loved season 3 a lot. Felt like it finally found a setting that suited the weird science stuff they started out with. Only thing I wasn't a fan of was the explaination of the season mystery and Sarus's status at the end.

The one real problem I have with Discovery is its sense of scale relative to other Star Trek series. It made the Milky Way Galaxy feel a lot smaller than usual with stuff like the Mycelial Network and The Burn affecting things on a galactic scale. Star Trek's always worked on a much smaller scale recognizing just how big our galaxy is where things like the Bajoran Wormhole were complete rarities.
