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┬áTardigrade 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
