review by
Mike Haberfelner


Six months after the occurences from last episode, former first officer Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) finds herself on a prisoner transfer from one corner of the galaxy to another, when their ship runs into trouble and is only just saved from total destruction by the sudden arrival of the USS Discovery. The Captain of the Discovery, Gabriel Lorca (Jason Isaacs), shows professional interest in Burnham, and pretty much forces her to work for him, rather than serving her time in jail. Burnham soon grows suspicious of the happenings on the Discovery, which is supposed to be a science vessel, but carries a lot of military personnel. Then she's picked on a mission to go to the Discovery's sister ship, which has obviously been attacked by the Klingons, to see if they left anything of value behind ... but on the ship, Burnham and her landing party find everyone dead, friend and foe alike, and they are soon threatened by a deadly monster, and it's partly thanks to Burnham's ingenuity that everybody makes it off the ship alike. But what she has seen on the other ship makes Burnham even more suspicious, and she soon starts to think the Discovery and the othership alike are experimenting with biological warfare - which of course goes against anything the Federation stands for. Captain Lorca assures her otherwise, claiming they're working on a revolutionary kind of energy source that will allow them to travel to anywhere in the universe in an instant ... but then why is he keeping the monster from the other ship in his closet?

 

Another well-made and well-played episode no doubt, but somehow this one seems to be above all the first act of a story that combines element from Alien and Aliens, without ever living up to either movie and spending a bit too much time on the series' story arc as to live up to the story's full potential, even. That said, there are some cool sequences in this one, but not enough to stand out.
