Star Trek: Discovery Season 4 Episode 1 Recap
The season 4 premiere, titled ‘Kobayashi Maru,’ opens with Burnham and Book heading a first contact mission to a planet that hasn’t been graced by Starfleet since even before the Burn took place. Burnham grants the envoy a stash of dilithium, but the community does not trust Starfleet enough. A misunderstanding then occurs that ends up in the Discovery revitalizing the civilization’s satellite system.
Elsewhere, it has been a long time since Saru has been helping Su’Kal adjust to the Kelpien society. The Kelpiens are indecisive about joining the Federation and are distrustful of Su’Kal’s potential ability to cause destruction. Su’Kal is aware that Saru wants to go back to the Discovery, but his allegiance to Kaminar obligates him to stay back. In the episode, we also learn Starfleet Academy now contains 60 planets as full members, which calls for a celebration.
Besides congratulating the team, Rillak introduces the Archer Spacedock, a system that could reduce the usage of dilithium, while Burnham attends a new briefing. Admiral Charles Vance wants the Discovery to investigate the disappearance of a Starfleet station. Although the Discovery locates the station, they are unable to use its transporters to take everyone to the ship. Burnham takes the station’s escape pod back to the Discovery as Rillak tries to convince the station chief to come onboard.
Tilly and Adira make it back, but the station chief is killed by the debris. Rillak then tells Burnham that he shouldn’t command a more advanced Starfleet vessel because of his penchant for sacrificing even when there is no need. Book then arrives with the news that his home planet, Kwejian, has been destroyed by an unrecognized force as the episode ends.
