To me it isn't a parody. To me it's more Star Trek with comedy. If you remove the comedy parts, you get an episode that could easily fit into The Next Generation. One episode is about the right of the parents to decide the fate of the child. Another episode about a civilization that doesn't know (and whose religious belief centers on that) they're not alone in the universe. Another about time travel and the problems it causes. With Discovery we have a generic space war show that happens to be in the Star Trek universe.
