Warp Trails #1-4: The Butcher’s Knife Cares Not for the Lamb’s Cry
The Klingons and Purity
Beth and Dennis begin their discussion of the fourth episode of Discovery with an observation about special effects. Then the discussion turns to the episode’s two plotlines. Following the Battle at the Binary Stars, T’kuvma’s followers are stranded in space. Therefore, they must overcome Klingon purity and repair their vessel. In addition, a Klingon from another noble house arrives. What are his intentions? Are his motives pure?
The Dire Need for the Spore Drive
While the Klingons struggle with their repairs, Captain Lorca tasks Michael Burnham with developing a weapon from the monster that haunted the USS Glenn. However, is there more to the monster than a mindless beast? Plus, the USS Discovery must respond to a distress signal from a crucial mining colony in time or the war with the Klingons is lost. Will their plan work? Will the spore drive work? Dennis and Beth analyze all these plot elements on the latest edition of Warp Trails.
