 Star Trek: Discovery |  2 × 12 - Through the Valley of Shadows

Captain Pike came with everything this season Star Trek: Discovery and the series explored the character that was presented in the pilot of the original series very well and had his destiny presented in it and here he glimpsed it… In addition, Controle is more treacherous than we can expect.

SPOILER ALERT: This article contains information about the main events of the episode. Continue reading at your own risk.

The plot of this episode continued around time travel and placed the Klingon having to review their own temple and thus shows us that the monastery of Boreth, where the son of L’Rell and Voq was abandoned, is actually the place where they need to be there to get the time crystal.

Again they return to the Tyler / Voq drama, but draw the same conclusion, since T’Navik, their son, is now the chief monk of the place, on a very interesting journey for Captain Pike. He was responsible for recovering a piece of the time crystal was nice, but the best thing was to see the consequences of it for him.

Pike knows that Starfleet and humanity is something bigger and must be protected, no matter what needs to be done. With that in mind, T’Naviq advises you to get out of there and forget about the crystal, or face your future and be able to go crazy. Of course, he plays a hero and finds his future, and that of his ship, in a position that places him in a chamber that controls his body, which was exposed to radiation and consumed him.

With a time crystal, it now remains to solve the problem of Sphere data and send it to a time when the Control cannot read. Thus, the only way out is to detach and destroy Discovery, and first to send the entire crew to the Enterprise.

While all this is happening, Michael discovers a fault and a Section 31 ship does not return its signal, and she and Spock go there, discovering that it is dominated by Control, which simply wants it at any cost, as it is the piece that can end your ambition. Unfortunately the series again features a supporting character, a former Shenzhou crew member who was Michael’s colleague, and he throws her into the trap.

Reno sees how Stamets looks after Hughs and decides to go to the doctor to work for his colleague. I liked the way she exposed her own relationship, how everything is a big process and how lucky he is to have someone he loves by his side, because her wife died in the Klingon War.

The way that Star Trek: Discovery has been working its secondary characters has left something to be desired, forgetting some important characters, and giving space to separate subplots that are not needed.
