Star Trek: Discovery Season 3 Episode 4 Recap

The only clue that the crew aboard the Discovery has uncovered about the Federation again is a strange message from Admiral Senna Tal, a Trill whose symbiont is embedded in Adira’s body. However, since Adira is human, she cannot access the symbiont’s memories like other joined Trill. The team, therefore, tries to enter the Trill homeland so that they can retrieve Senna Tal’s memories. Burnham accompanies Tal on the mission as per Saru’s instructions.

A Trill guides the duo to the Caves of Makala where they get flashes of Adira’s memories and that of the Tal symbiont. It is revealed that the symbiont belongs to Adira’s ex-lover, Ray Tal, who died in an explosion. On the Discovery, the crew attempts to reconnect as a singular organism. They have been isolated from the rest of the universe and are trying to adjust to the new normal.

Later, Saru organizes a dinner for the team in the conference room. However, tensions reach a boiling point when Stamets gets into an altercation with Tilly. Detmer has still not adjusted to the fact that she is so far in the future. To bring all the members on the same page, Saru recounts the moment at season 2’s finale when everyone had agreed to enter the future together. Finally, the members reconcile.
