Star Trek: Discovery – S1E5 – “Choose Your Pain”

On this episode of The Star Trek Discovery Podcast, Adam and I discuss Season 1 Episode 5, titled “Choose Your Pain”. We see our characters deal with the pain they are causing the tardigrade, Lorca be taken and then tortured by the Klingons, and come across the final main cast member, Lieutenant Ash Tyler, and meet an old character in Harry Mudd.

Choose Your Pain, Harcourt Fenton Mudd!!!

We also see the Klingon L’Rell again, who has moved up and is Captain of her own ship. The reveal of her having Tyler as a prisoner for seven months bring me more questions about Tyler, and makes me wonder about Voq. Could they be one in the same?

It wouldn’t be the first time we see a Klingon be altered to appear human. We see this in The Trouble With Tribbles. Now, I am not sure enough about this possibility to declare him a spy, but I will be paying attention to this character going forward.

We also enjoyed the Saru scenes, especially with him dealing with his resentment of Burnham.

We both thought this was the best episode so far, and can’t wait for next week!
