A century before Captain Kirk's five-year mission, Jonathan Archer captains the United Earth ship Enterprise during the early years of Starfleet, leading up to the Earth-Romulan War and the formation of the Federation.
The Enterprise is diverted to the Romulan homeworld Romulus, supposedly because they want to negotiate a peace treaty. Captain Picard and his crew discover a serious threat to the Federation once Praetor Shinzon plans to attack Earth.
On the eve of retirement, Kirk and McCoy are charged with assassinating the Klingon High Chancellor and imprisoned. The Enterprise crew must help them escape to thwart a conspiracy aimed at sabotaging the last best hope for peace.
The Mudd episode of Short Treks is the best one. The rest are hit or miss. Rainn Wilson needs to be in more episodes as I think he did a fantastic job.
I also don't get all the hate this series receives from Trek fans. I'm a life long fan, watched and loved every TV series (even Enterprise) and hate the new movies because I feel like they are not real Star Trek, but Discovery doesn't come anywhere close to those movies. I will admit, I was not a fan of the Klingons in the new series at 1st and some of the plot doesn't hold up to much scrutiny, but I felt it did a much better job at capturing the spirit of Star Trek than the new movies and even the last couple of TNG movies. I disagree vehemently with all of those who say this TV series is destroying what Gene Roddenberry created. Stop being so emotional about it and accept that there are people who like this show. I think people need to be a little bit more open-minded and not hold the favorite things from their childhood so close to their heart and crap on everything that isn't exactly that. Nothing will ever be exactly that. This one is close enough for me.
