Another riveting episode that builds up both plot and character as the series moves forward impressively!
The main premise: Captain Lorca is kidnapped by the Klingons and the Discovery has to utilise the spore drive to rescue. Unfortunately, there is something wrong with the Tardigrade which might hinder Acting Captain Saru’s plans – and as usual her name is Michael Burnham.
The episode resolves these various conundrums dramatically and effectively – meeting a new version of TOS character Harry Mudd (Rainn Wilson) and future security officer Ash Taylor (Shazad Latif), along the way.
With the Tardigrade rendered useless, Paul Stamets sacrifices himself as a replacement to perform the same function. Stamets survives but there is now something terribly askew with reality.
All of which set up tasty storylines as Star Trek : Discovery continues its intriguing take on Star Trek lore.
… still there’s more …
