Berg explained major characters in Discovery, that they could be cut-off any time without taking their mortality for granted. This was referenced to successful series like Game of Thrones. in the interview, saying:

“Game of Thrones changed television, They almost made it difficult to fall in love with people because you didn’t know if they were going to be taken away from you. That show had an influence on all TV dramas that have come after it …. Death isn’t treated gratuitously on this show. It’s not for shock value. But when it happens we want to make sure that people really feel it.”
