Spock vs the T-1000
5 April 2019 | by XweAponXSee all my reviews

Pike meets a "Minbari" Klingon. Looked like warrior caste, even. "Tenavik, Son of None". A most unusual Klingon. With the time crystal in the Red Angel suit destroyed, Discovery is back to investigating the "Red Signals", this particular Red signal magically appeared over the the Klingon planet "Boreth", turns out Boreth is more important than we've ever seen, we thought it was run by overzealous monks who re-created Kahless from the blood on his betleH. But this planet turns out to be a lot more important then being merely a breeding ground for clones or for fooling Worf, something important goes on there.

Spock and Burnham visit a Section 31 ship, to find out why it was late checking in. What they find there, we are almost able to guess due to Leland's previous encounter with "Control", but it is actually much worse.

Imagine Spock having to fight the Terminator T-1000 without letting it touch him. He gets creative.

But the big question should be, "Hey, wasn't the Magic Red Angel suit destroyed and then sucked into the far future?"

If that's so, then who is sending the Red Signals? Is there another Red Suit floating amok? Or, maybe we haven't completely caught up with things that have already happened, but just haven't happened to Discovery - Yet.

Pike is confronted with a startling image, and a choice. Will it be "No Fate but What you Make", or will he embrace what is to come?
