review by
Mike Haberfelner


The Discovery puts a plan into motion to destroy the Klingon homeworld from within, and thus per spore drive jump into a huge cavern on the planet, then the Discovery's new captain, Georgiou from the evil universe (Michelle Yeoh), Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green), the de-Klingonized Ash (Shazad Latif), and bubbly Tilly (Mary Wiseman) are teleported onto the surface of the planet, to find out more about its cave system, each in their own way, but frankly none with much success - and then Tilly finds out that what Georgiou has brought with them is not a drone to explore the surface but a hydrogen bomb to destroy the planet for good. Now everybody's in shock, especially Burnham, but once she's found out, Georgiou is quick to get a head start to the planet's most vulnerable point, and almost detonates the bomb when Burnham intervenes, claiming she has come jup with a better way - and thus they hand the detonator to their Klingon prisoner L'Rell (Mary Chieffo), a Klingon outcast, in hopes that she will ... oh, I don't know really, but she uses it to unite the houses of Klingon into one terrific strike force - so maybe not the perfect plan. Oh right, and then there's Ash's subplot: He's now totally human, and Burnham is willing to give him another chance, but decides to stay with L'Rell, because ... not sure.

 

Frankly, there are too many plotholes and leaps of reason in this episode to be a satisfying season finale, and the post finale scene where Burnham has a big speech and everybody gets a medal is rather cringeworthy. On the plus side though, many of the season's narrative threads to at least get tied up in the end, and when in the final scene we see the Discovery being hailed by the original USS Enterprise (then still under command of Captain Pike, who'll only appear in later episodes), bridging the gap to Star Trek's original pilot The Cage and serving as an interesting kick-off for season 2.

 

Oh, and a bit of trivia: Clint Howard, who plays a pretty pointless role as some sleazy alien who drugs Tilly in this one, has been first in Star Trek in the original series' episode The Corbomite Maneuver from 1966 (and several times since in different series), making him the longest serving (if occasional) cast member of the series.
