review by
Mike Haberfelner


With the Klingons quickly approaching the peace-loving spore-inhabited planet Pahvo with the express intention of destroying it, the Discovery is ordered back to base - but Captain Lorca (Jason Isaacs), against express order, decides to stay behind and ambush the Klingon destroyer flagship to destabilize the Klingon Empire. But since the flagship has a cloaking device, he first has to teleport two of his crew, Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) and Ash (Shazad Latif) of course, over so they can place two beacons on the ship to make it "visible" for the Discovery, which thanks to its spore drive is able to appear anywhere and disappear again within seconds and thus can hit the Klingon ship at all the vital spots before blowing it up.

And while the Discovery is busy doing that, Burnham and Ash discover the body of Admiral Cornwell (Jayne Brook), who got killed last episode, and revive her, and Ash runs across L'Rell (Mary Chieffo), whose prisoner turned lover he once was, which triggers his PTSD. And while Admiral Cornwell tries to talk him through that, Burnham has to duel herself with Klingon leader Kol (Kenneth Mitchell), and she seems to be standing her own, before she, along with Ash, the admiral and L'Rell are teleported back to the Discovery and the Klingon ship's blown to Kingdom Come.

A full-blown success of course, and one that actually earns Lorca a medal despite his insubordination - but there's one problem, it has really strained navigator Stamets (Anthony Rapp), the physical link between the ship and the spores, and he agrees to do only one more jump to then retire - but that last jump brings the Discovery into uncharted territory ...

 

It's one of those episodes that got you thinking: Why are those beacons so darned big and clunky things that shine in the dark, that sometimes talk, in other words that could be easily detected even if one wasn't looking for them. Frankly that no Klingon just tripped over one of them and destroyed it because that's what Klingons do is a bit of a miracle? Plus, why couldn't they have just teleported into their respective places without Burnham and Ash to deliver them and running unnecessary risks - including being discovered? And how did the Admiral get better from her death last episode? I might be nit-picking, but these are things that took me out of the story a little, though as a whole, this wasn't a bad episode - with maybe a bit too much spectacle and narrative leaps (see above), but the story was rather original for a change, and told with all the necessary energy.
