Star Trek Discovery 2.04 An Obol for Charon

A mysterious sphere takes Discovery out of warp while the ship was en route to intercept Spock’s trail that was given to him by Number One. The sphere locks Discovery in place. The fungal parasite latches on to Tilly during the chaos caused to the ship while in status.


This episode just seems so pointless. It’s like a throw-back to the original series where the enterprise encounters a menace battles it, only to find it’s not what it appeared to be.

The bug and Tilly was also weird, so much for conservation of mass, as the thing is both on her arm and then encloses her. Maybe she has gone for good.

It also looks really weird to have Captain Pike in an orange command uniform, walking with officers in more modern looking uniforms.
