Star Trek: Discovery – S1E4 – “The Butcher’s Knife Cares Not for the Lamb’s Cry”

On this episode of The Star Trek Discovery Podcast, Adam and I discuss Season 1 Episode 4, titled “The Butcher’s Knife Cares Not for the Lamb’s Cry”. We see the “spore drive” working, which explains the weird saucer section of the Discovery. It’s Burnham fighting the monster within herself, and dealing with the monster on board Discovery. Who is really a monster? Both, one or neither?

Since we’ve all seen the 24th Century of this universe, we know that the spore drive is not commonplace on future Starfleet vessels. However, we’ve just seen just what it can do, and what controls it. We both enjoyed this episode, although I enjoyed it more than Adam did. What can I say? I like cool ships doing cool things, and the spore drive is cool! And Tardigrades play a factor in this episode… you know, those little, resilient water bears? Only this one isn’t so little!

Some mysteries from last week are solved, but certain ethical dilemmas seem to present themselves. Are they hurting the Tardigrade?

Burnham gets a new uniform!

We are treated to some cool effects at the start of this episode, to a surprising result: The creation of Burnham’s uniform! She’s got no rank, but it’s good to see her out of those prison duds!

We can’t wait for next week!
