Episode 293: Star Trek Discovery “Unification III”
“Unification III” is the seventh episode of season three of Star Trek Discovery and we found this to be a well done bottle episode. The Vulcan’s and Romulan’s now live on Vulcan and have renamed the planet to Ni’Var. Ni’Var has some information Michael needs to understand the burn. They will not give up the information freely so Michael evokes an ancient Vulcan ritual to try to forcibly recover the information. This episode is a worthy successor to the first two unification episodes seeing Spock’s hard work finally come to fruition. But will Michael burn Spock’s legacy to the ground? Does Michael finally start to feel like a real person? Listen to find out. It’s time to pour yourself a cold glass of Ni’Varian Ale, for your weekly shot of Star Trek!
“Scavengers” is the sixth episode of season three of Star Trek Discovery and the Synthaholics found this episode rather enjoyable. It was a lot of fun and it had some crazy good effects even for Star Trek Discovery. We finally may have a clue to what the burn is but we don’t know for sure yet. Hopefully we will find out next week if this week’s MacGuffin pays off. Is anyone else feeling like this season of Discovery is kind of like the movies where the even numbered episodes are head and shoulders above the odd number episodes? What’s up with Georgiou did Cronenburg do something to her? Or is this something unrelated? It’s time to pour yourself a cold glass of Romulan Ale, for your weekly shot of Star Trek!
Aaron has escaped this transporter accident and he joins David to discuss “Die Trying” the fifth episode of the third season of Star Trek Discovery. This episode started off strong with a nice captains log and a brief look at some new StarFleet ships. We see the USS Nog, the Voyager – J, and what they called a new version of the constitution class. The StarFleet Admiral isn’t too happy to have the time traveling crew but that’s nothing a classic fetch quest can’t fix. We were hoping to see some answers this week as we finally have our crew of the USS Discovery back in the heart of the federation but “Die Trying” has no answers and just leaves us with more questions. Emperor Georgou and her debriefing hold some of the most interesting things said and not said in this episode. We can’t wait to find out what all that is about. It’s time to pour yourself a cold glass of Romulan Ale, for your weekly shot of Star Trek!
