Star Trek Discovery S3 E 7 “Unification III”

Star Trek Discovery S3 E 7 “Unification III”

November 30, 2020

Season 3, Episode 7: A demoted Michael is still burning with a the desire to answer the questions of The Burn. Evidence points to a program that was run by Starfleet on a mysterious planet called Ni'Var. Well, it's Vulcan, actually. And the Vulcans live there *with* the Romulans. Unification! ...But they left Starfleet 100 years ago and want nothing to do with it. Can Michael, sister of Spock, convince them otherwise? Will she be able to keep it together when her mother shows up?! [nb: her mother shows up] Will there be sweet, sweet Vulcan logic courtroom drama?!?! These are real uncertainties. Unlike the following two questions: (a) Is Tilly going to make an awesome Number One? (b) Will Book remove his shirt within the first five minutes of the episode? All will be revealed (Mr. Book included) as we run it down!

Star Trek Discovery S3 E 6 “Scavengers”

Star Trek Discovery S3 E 6 “Scavengers”

November 23, 2020

DISCO gets a retrofit - sexy new controls, detached nacelles, and comm badges that do EVERYTHING!

They are told to stand-by for an important mission. Unfortunately, Michael finds out that Book is in trouble and so she and Georgiou jump on his abandoned ship to launch a rescue. AWOL on the first day on the job! Captain Saru is displeased.

Meanwhile, the crew continues to bond; Linus is all over the place (literally); and Tilly is *not* a cat person.

November 16, 2020
In Season 3, Episode 5 DISCO finally makes its to Star Fleet/Federation Headquarters... And everyone is very suspicious of them. The powers that be want to split up the crew and maybe even the ship (DUN DUN DUN!)
 
Captain Saru and First Officer Michael Burnham must race to prove their worth to this advanced Federation and keep the crew (and ship) together — but the future is a very strange place and sacrifices must be made...

Star Trek Discovery S3 E 4 “Forget Me Not”

November 9, 2020
So there *is* a Federation out there somewhere (though the location is a secret)! Fortunately, Adira, the newest member of Discovery’s crew, is hosting a symbiont that knows where that is. She just can’t access its memories!
 
DISCO heads to Trill and tries to convince them to help her. In the meantime, the crew’s morale is starting to fray in a dangerous way, so: Captain Saru throws a dinner party!
Star Trek Discovery S3 E 3 “People Of Earth”

A tearful reunion begins Episode 3 of Season as Michael and the crew of Discovery are back together again. But Michael has been here in the future for a full year all alone, things have changed, *she* has changed...
 
Is Discovery still home for her? Saru becomes Captain, Book comes aboard, and DISCO jumps home to Earth to find that much has changed since 900 years ago...

Star Trek Discovery S3 E 2 “Far From Home”

Star Trek Discovery S3 E 2 “Far From Home”

October 28, 2020
In Episode 2 of Season 3, we get to see what happens when the Discovery comes through the time-rift...
 
The crew is still pretty badly beaten from their fight with Control, but they are picking up the pieces (in the case of the USS Discovery, literal pieces) as they race to get the ship functioning after a crash landing and discover a future that is not at all what it was cracked up to be...

Star Trek Discovery is back!!
 
930 years in the future, Michael Burnham arrives alone and injured.
 
She meets an unkind stranger (with a very large cat) who informs her that the Federation had collapsed! And then... they go shopping (and all hell breaks loose)!
 
Akie and Steph get all excited and discuss the episode and all the fun facts and theories from this brand new episode of our favourite series that is... Star Trek: Discovery!

Star Trek Discovery S2 E 13 & 14 “Such Sweet Sorrow” Parts 1 & 2

Star Trek Discovery S2 E 13 & 14 “Such Sweet Sorrow” Parts 1 & 2

October 14, 2020
It’s the season 2 finale of Star Trek: Discovery. It’s the end, it’s the end, it’s the end!
 
Who is the red angel? Why is the red angel? CONTROL has *control* of all of Section 31. It’s seem like utter self destruction is the only way to ensure it doesn’t get the Sphere data.
 
Michael and Spock are in a real bind until they realize the most important question really is: WHEN is the Red Angel?
Answer that and “the end” might only be the beginning...
Star Trek Discovery S2 E 11 & 12 “Perpetual Infinity” & “Through The Valley of Shadows”

Star Trek Discovery S2 E 11 & 12 “Perpetual Infinity” & “Through The Valley of Shadows”

October 12, 2020
We’re in the home stretch of Season 2 but things are getting *very* hairy...
 
First off, Michael’s Mom is the Red Angel (let that sink in) – but it ain’t all hugs and kisses. Secondly, remember Leland? Who had his brain poked at through his eye by a periscope of some sort? Well he’s fine (that’s a relief!) but he is acting a little strange. There is yet another red signal DISCO has to check out where Pike is confronted with a fairly unfair choice. Oh, and evil supercomputer Control? It’s back, baby!
