Continuing. WARNING: The following contains spoilers for Star Trek: Discovery Season 3, Episode 1, "That Hope is You," now streaming on CBS All Access.. Star Trek: Discovery recap: 'The Butcher's Knife Cares Not for the Lamb's Cry' By Eric Renner Brown S1 E3 Recap Star Trek Discovery recap – what happened at the end of season 2? In a “why don’t they make the plane out of the black-box material” sort of moment, Captain Lorca assigns Burnham to study the beast, now-christened Ripper, rescued from the Glenn in last week’s episode to figure out whether they can utilize its seemingly indestructible hide, then assigns Landry to criticize and undermine her. It’s filled with scary monsters, gnarly weapons, and terrific visual storytelling. In another, truer sense, I watched it with my friends Matt and Jaya, who kept asking why the Klingons looked so different. I know I promised I would never tire of those galaxy-cum-everyday-objects, and I suppose I can’t fault the show for delivering something I specifically asked for. ...

This particular beat feels more than a little clumsy and heavy-handed; it’s also noticeable and distressing that two of the only significant crew deaths thus far have been women of color. How a presumptive Game of the Year botched its launch. Status. Landry calls it a “ripper,” but Burnham’s not so sure it’s a natural predator.

Voq is undermined and abandoned by rival Kol, who steals away his crew with, essentially, Homer Simpson’s motivational technique of “doughnuts, and the possibility of more doughnuts to come.” L’Rell immediately hands over the dilithium processor to Kol and then tells him not to bother killing Voq, because she can think of a “much better fate than death for him.” Kol somehow falls for this, but I am strongly of the opinion that if the fanatically devoted second-in-command to the dude you just ousted says, “Oh, no, Great One, I can think of a much better, unnecessarily elaborate thing to do to him than kill him, even though killing him would solve all of your problems,” that you should not believe them.

But the sedation spray doesn’t work, and the creature ends up tossing her around the room, killing her before Burnham can get it back in its pen. I am not above telling you, gentle reader, that I giggled, and then cheerfully conceded that she loves the freedom of being an XO and wants to kiss Voq. “She loves the freedom of being an XO,” I maintained. Calling the creature a “Tardigrade,” Burnham presents her findings to Stamets, and together, they release the Tardigrade into the ship’s spore forest, where it seems to communicate with the spores in a form of symbiosis.

Matt: “Star Trek’s technology is basically best understood as ‘magic that needs another piece of magic to actually work.’”) In a legitimately lovely design moment, the ring around the saucer starts spinning and they do a wonderful, wobbling sort of twirl before jumping to Corvan 2, a mining colony that’s under attack by Klingon Birds-of-Prey. Oh, and Burnham finally opened that package from Georgiou: As part of her will, she left Burnham a hologram message encouraging her to “keep your eyes and heart open, always.” And she left her that old-school telescope — so she’ll always keep exploring. They’re able to zap over to Corvan 2 and destroy the Klingons, saving the poor miners.

Landry is subsequently and ignominiously killed when Ripper is released from his cage, presumably to illustrate the dangers of not approaching mysterious beasts with sufficient open-minded curiosity.

Christina Aguilera Ignoring the Melody Won This Very Musical Week in Late Night, She turned “The Christmas Song” into “The Christ(ina)mas Song.”.
