Preview: Star Trek: Discovery Season 3 Episode 8

Seven episodes in and ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ is still not close to uncovering the reason behind the Burn. However, this week’s seventh episode, ‘Unification III’, did offer us a hint of the show going back to its roots. The title is linked to the ‘Unification’ two-parter from ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’ when Spock had tried to unite the Romulans and the Vulcans. Even if this nod to the past does not have much effect on the current story, it does manage to make us believe that ‘Stark Trek’ honors continuity. We will come to the exact details later. Now, the show is all geared up to release its next episode. And here is everything you need to know about it.

In the 7th episode, we witness a scene, where Michael and Book are in bed together. As they talk, Book confesses that he wants to leave Discovery. Michael admits that she cannot think of departing until she solves the Burn mystery. Although Book is not so happy with this revelation, he decides to not express it out loud. The episode later reveals that Spock’s efforts to unite the Romulans and the Vulcans turned out to be successful. Currently, the Romulans and Vulcans live together on Vulcan AKA Nevar. They are no longer a part of the Federation. As per the Vulcans, a certain science project caused the Burn.
