Star Trek: Discovery Season 4 Episode 5 Recap
In the fifth episode, titled ‘The Examples,’ Paul Stamets and Jett Reno persevere in their goal to discern the highly unpredictable ways of the anomaly. The crew of the Discovery deduces that the anomaly is artificially created based on its movements. Admiral Charles Vance lets go of a few suspects, including the Metrons and Q Continuum, and then realizes that Species 10C might be responsible. In the meantime, the anomaly is heading towards a colony, and the Discovery teams up with Captain Michael Burnham for an evacuation mission that needs to be done within three hours.
Once they land on the planet, Burnham and Cleveland “Book” Booker take the initiative to evacuate an automated prison facility. They need to shut off the system and manually open the gates. After that, these prisoners are granted political asylum at the Federation. An outside specialist named Ruon Tarka has an idea of catching the culprit, but it involves generating a singularity around the Discovery. Understanding the risks involved, Saru closes the operation, much to Tarka’s dismay. Meanwhile, Doctor Hugh Culber visits Kovich to talk about his anxieties.
According to Kovich, Culber has been struggling to come to terms with reality after his death in the first season of ‘Star Trek: Discovery.’ As Burnham and Book try to save the colony, one of the prisoners chooses to stay behind after admitting that he is guilty of murder. He hands over the family heirloom that he had stolen from the victim to Burnham. He returns it to the victim’s daughter, who is a part of the refugee gang. In the end, Tarka senses how angry Book is over the person who created the anomaly.
