Star Trek Discovery — Episode 9: Into The Forest I Go

13th November, 2017

Right now, I’m intent on just … 

One … 


I’m intent on writing the quickest post I possibly can.

Before I hit the sack.

Four o’clock start, don’t you know?

But I had to tell you: I’ve seen episode nine of Star Trek Discovery.

And, while I don’t see the point in a mid-season hiatus — especially on what, after all, is a purely online TV series — I’m actually looking for January: when CBS are releasing episode 10.

But … ?

Well … 


Episode 9 — Into The Forest I Go — opens above the skies of Pahvo: showing us the Kol’s flagship arriving above the planet, and looking for a confrontation with the Discovery.

The only way for Captain Lorca (Jason Isaacs) to make sure they can track the thing?

Is to send Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) and Tyler (Shazad Latif) on to the ship.

To hide a pair of sensors.

It’s only when they get there, they realise two things.

Kol of the House of Kor (Kenneth Mitchell) is a lot more ambitious than first thought.

And that the sarcophagus ship?

Still has a captive … 

Admiral Cornwell … 


Now … 


Yes: I’m thinking Into The Forest I Go was fantastic.

And wishing I had more time to chew over the episode.

For now?

You’ll have to take my word for it: the first half of the first series of Star Trek: Discovery is leaving wanting to leapfrog Christmas and dive straight into January.

Have a good night.
