Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green), Ash (Shazad Latif) and Saru (Doug
Jones) are sent down to the musical planet Pahvo where they hope to find a
way to crack the cloaking devices of the Klingon battleships, and they
find the whole planet to be populated by spores, but different than the
spores on the Discovery, and somehow Saru can communicate with them. And
the local spores are a peace-loving species, and under their influence,
Saru manages to calm down for the first time ever. And while he's out
negotiating with the spores, romance of course blossoms between Burnham
and Ash. But it soon becomes apparent that all this peace and tranquility
actually turns Saru into a madman, as he soon enough tries to actively
destroy Ash and Burnham's tricorders as well as all means of
communications with the Discovery, so much so that they have to knock him
out and request emergency teleportation back to the ship.
the Klingons, L'Rell (Mary Chieffo), the girlfriend of Voq from the
Butcher's Knife Cares Not for the Lamb's Cry, wants to defect to
Starfleet and needs recently incarcerated Admiral Cornwell (Jayne Brook)
to that end - but her plan (if she ever had any) gets blown up quickly and
ultimately she has to kill the Admiral to save her own hide.
Oh, and did
Saru at least negotiate for a way to detect the Klingons' cloaking devices
with the spores? No, but the spores, having learned about the war between
Starfleet and the Klingons, have invited both sides for peace talks to
their planet ...
After the last couple of episodes that were
letdowns rather, this is one of the better ones, even if it again brings
little new - in fact, planetary explorations with one crewmember losing it
were quite common throughout all series of Star Trek, and
have been told with more panache before. But on the plus side, Saru is
finally given a bit of a character arc, above being just the scaredy cat
of the bunch, and Doug Jones shows how much emotion he actually can convey
despite all the prosthetics. On the other hand, the demise of Admiral
Cornwell came a bit too casually and lacked buildup, and the whole Klingon
subplot (which is of course a set-up for later episodes) sat ill with the
other story, seemed a bit at odds even. Still, one of the better episodes,
even if that might not mean terribly much.
