Warp Trails #1-9: Into the Forest I Go
Discovery vs. The Ship of the Dead
In the last episode, the crew of the USS Discovery inadvertently caused the planet Pahvo to summon the Klingons. Now, the Discovery is all that stands between the Pahvons and imminent destruction. Lorca defies orders to return to Star Base 46 to save the planet. However, to save the Pahvons, Discovery will need its spore drive in a manner for which it was not intended. Can Lt. Stamets survive the stress? What happens when an away team reaches the Ship of the Dead and finds something they weren’t expecting? Also, can Burnham stand up to Kol?
On this episode of Warp Trails, Dennis and Beth examine Lorca’s plan. Since this is the mid-season finale, they also discuss the show’s growth and development. Thanks for listening, and live long and prosper.
