Discovering Trek: Terra Firma, Part 1


This week, Dan, Bill and Sara discuss the ninth episode of Star Trek: Discovery Season 3, “Terra Firma, Part 1.” Georgiou and Burnham beam down to a strange planet in the hopes of finding a cure to Phillipa’s condition.  They come across a strange man named Carl sitting next to a large door.  When Phillipa steps through, she is returned to the Mirror Universe to a time before the ISS Charon was christened and her adopted daughter Michael was still alive.  But is Michael the loyal subject and daughter she appears to be or is she part of a grand scheme to take over the throne with Lorca?

Meanwhile, on Discovery, Staments and Adira access the distress signal from the ship in the center of the nebula where The Burn originated.  To everyone’s surprise, especially Saru, it is from Kelpiens!!

Will Georgiou survive the assassination attempts being planned against her?  Will she be able to bring a new way of ruling to The Empire? Will Saru’s judgement be compromised with seeing this new information from a member of his own species? We hope you’ll join us for a great discussion on Discovering Trek!
