Star Trek: Discovery Season 3 Episode 8 Recap

In the 8th episode, Georgiou converses with Culber and we assume that she discusses her medical officer, with whom she has been consulting about her Terran memory flashes. Culber tells her that if she does not seek proper treatment, her brain will damage to a point of no return. Book meets up with Michael and informs her that his brother has sent him a message. His home planet Quajon might be under attack from an Orion-Andorian syndicate called the Emerald Chain. Book, in his mission, is accompanied by Saru and Michael.

At their destination, they meet the Chain leader, Osyraa, who in one word is merciless. On the Discovery, the crew concludes that the Burn had its origins in the Verubin nebula, which is connected to a Federation distress signal. On the other hand, Osyraa, who realizes that Ryn has escaped, demands them to give him back. Else, she will enact her revenge on Quajon. When no one agrees to surrender, she blows up the planet while Book and Michael struggle to bring up their defense systems. Eventually, the Discovery crew is able to escape. Book reconciles with his brother Cha’him and gives him and his son a tour of the ship. Book also tells Michael that he wants to be a part of their future missions.
