Warp Trails: Discovery #3-12 There Is A Tide…

by Warp Trails

Michael Burnham attempts to retake Discovery while Osyraa makes a surprising and intriguing offer to Admiral Vance and the Federation.

Discovery is in the hands of Osyraa and the Emerald Chain. Even more alarming, Osyraa successfully uses the ship to infiltrate Starfleet Headquarters. Once there, she has a surprising offer for Admiral Vance. Meanwhile, Acting-Captain Tilly and the bridge crew must liberate themselves from Osyraa’s Regulators. They have help though. Booker and Michael Burnham make it back to Discovery just in time to infiltrate the ship. Can they save Discovery and her crew before something awful happens?

On this episode we discuss:

  • The complexity of Osyraa and the Emerald Chain,
  • Osyraa and Admiral Vance’s negotiations,
  • Michael Burnham’s Die Hard adventure,
  • Tilly and the bridge crew’s attempt to escape the ready room,
  • Stamets and the scientist Aurellio discussing the Emerald Chain, and
  • Why Osyraa’s negotiation with Vance fails and what it says about Starfleet and the United Federation of Planets.
