Discovering Trek: The Examples


This week, Dan, Bill, Sara, and Kasey take on Star Trek Discovery’s “The Examples”. 

During an rescue mission on an old Emerald Chain settlement, Burnham and Book work to save a group of prisoners who were left behind during the evacuation and face certain death from the DMA. 

Meanwhile on the Discovery, Federation scientist and all around know it all Ruon Tarka comes aboard and works with Stamets to gather more information on the DMA. With the help of Saru and Reno, they come up with a dangerous plan to create a mini DMA to test some theories and gain additional data.

Plus, Culber is obviously feeling the stress as ships counselor.  He reaches out to an unexpected source of help to figure out what he needs to do – namely Dr. Kovich!
