UPDATE: Here's the blurb for the episode (thanks Alex Sz for reminding me I'd missed it!):
Bypassing Starfleet’s orders, Lorca uses the U.S.S. Discovery crew’s ultimate asset, the ship itself, in an effort to end the war with the Klingons once and for all.Spore drive battle especially looks cool. I'm assuming from the explosions already going on here, the Discovery will be popping up all over the place around the sarcophagus ship:
Meanwhile Burnham and Tyler are off inside the ship to do something...
And ultimately that leads to Burnham challenging Kol to a duel!
Notice the glowing something on Burnham's chest there? Wonder what that's about...
I imagine the Stamets plot is going to escalate with all the spore-jumping. In the midst of battle you think?
We'll find out soon, but showrunner Aaron Harberts has certainly set this up to be a major episode in the season, speaking to the Radio Times:
I absolutely adore episode nine. There’s a clash of characters, there are several reckonings that happen. There are a couple of things that I don’t think the audience is going to see coming. The back half of the season is all about dealing with what happens next week. We really put the pedal to the metal.Meanwhile, here are the latest batch of clips from the previous episode, Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum:
Star Trek: Discovery is distributed almost everywhere in the world on Netflix, except for the US where it is available on CBS All Access, and Canada where it's found on Bell Media channels and services.
