review by
Mike Haberfelner

By now, Captain Lorca (Jason Isaacs) has developed his revolutionary drive - the "spore drive" that will allow the Discovery to travel to anywhere in the universe in an instant - to almost perfection, but when it comes to save a Federation colony from a Klingon attack, he has to realize the drive is still lacking in actually getting to the desired destination. Meanwhile, Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) and Landry  (Rekha Sharma) are tasked with examining the monster from last episode and finding a military use for it. And after the monster kills Landry, Burnham finds its not hostile and can be tamed - and it's the key to the spore drive's destination finding capabilities, actually (?). So with the monster, dubbed "Ripper" in place, the Discovery gets to the colony in time and erradicates all Klingon attackers, thanks to another special feature of the spore drive (?).

Meanwhile, in Klingon City (or wherever), Voq (Javid Iqbal) wants to proclaim himself the heir of T'Kuvma, the Messiah, but apparently the other Klingons are less than happy to follow him, so they banish him and his consort L'Rell (Mary Chieffo) aboard the (now evacuated but still functional USS Shenzhou - for reasons as for yet unexplained ...

Michelle Yeoh makes a short appearance as a hologram speaking to Burnham as a sort of last will.


I'm sorry, but this is an episode that falls apart quite a bit: Having the monster as the ship's navigator is - well, more than a bit silly, as are the spore drive's seemingly unending capabilities. And again, the Klingon scenes are just too long, too full of rather cheesy dialogue, while not serving an immediate narrative purpose, rather setting up things for later episodes (one would hope). The whole thing looks good though, and the effects are great, it's just short on substance.
