Warp Trails #1-13: What’s Past is Prologue
Burnham Makes an Alliance to Survive the Coup at the Palace
In “Vaulting Ambition,” Lorca revealed himself as a Terran usurper to the Imperial throne. Now, Michael Burnham must aid the Emperor of the “Mirror Universe” of Star Trek, Philipa Georgiou, in order for the Discovery to stand a chance of making it home. In addition, Lorca is not without allies. After he rescues his former crew from the clutches of the Empire, the coup is on.
On this episode of Warp Trails, Dennis and Beth continue the discussion of Discovery’s ongoing adventures in the Mirror Universe. Fate and destiny are important concepts to Captain Lorca and key themes of this episode. How does the Discovery handle their fate? How does Saru handle his role as captain of the ship?
