What to Expect From Star Trek: Discovery Season 3 Episode 2?

The episode is titled ‘Far From Home’ and it will follow Burnham and her new friend Cleveland “Book” Booker as they wait for the other crew members to appear — while being stranded 930 years in Burnham’s future. Of course, we also expect the episode to cover the details of Discovery — where is it? According to the evidence showcased in the first episode, it has become a victim of some mechanical mishap. Now, as Burnham awaits the arrival of her shipmates, she is lucky to at least have company — the last man standing from the Federation. And we really believe that the main focus of season 3 will be on how to rebuild the Federation.

Star Trek: Discovery Season 3 Episode 1 Recap

In ‘That Hope Is You’, Burnham crashes through a wormhole and lands in the year 3188, 930 years into her future. She sends her time suit back through the closing wormhole to wrap up a loose end from season 2. However, unluckily, her skeleton crew aboard the Discovery does not make it on time. And as per the rules of time travel, they can show up any minute or maybe a thousand years after!

In her future, Burnham uncovers that around 100 years earlier, the Federation and the galaxy were destroyed by an event called The Burn. Most of the Dilithium in warp cores are also gone. Therefore, ships can rarely travel from planet to planet as of now. However, there are still a few remnants of the Federation. So, Burnham makes up her mind to reunite the members of the Federation, find her crewmates, and delve deeper into the secrets of The Burn.
