Star Trek: Discovery – What’s Past is Prologue Recap

Synopsis: Lorca plans to move forward with a coup against the Emperor, propelling Burnham to make a quick decision to save not only herself, but the U.S.S. Discovery.

We now know how Lorca ended up in our universe and we can thank an ion cloud for that. His purpose now is to overthrow the Emperor. So, it becomes a game of cat and mouse between Lorca and Philippa. But, Lorca is obsessed with Michael and thinks that they can rule the universe together and make it peaceful. What he does not know is that he is being played.

The main issue that effects all of the mutiverse is that the Emperor’s ship has the capacity to destroy all of the universes due to the mycelial core. Now, the crew of the Discovery need to take out the Emperor’s ship in order to save the multiverse.

As a result of this information, Michael makes her plans with Saru. She and Philippa end up helping her take down Lorca. But. she did not want to kill him. Philippa, on the other hand, had no qualms of killing him.  In the last moments before being beamed out of the ship, she grabbed onto Philippa and was saved, against her will.

In the wake of the explosion, the Discovery figured out how to get to their universe (thanks to Stamets and Tilly, but they overshot it by nine months. What they are in now is a universe where the Klingons are winning and a third of the Federation’s ships are gone.

Now, the big question is…will they be able to turn the tides of the war.

Now, I was upset by Lorca’s death. However, no one really dies forever in a multiverse. Maybe we will see him sooner than later.
