A big risk is made for answers in ‘Unification 3’
Last time on Star Trek: Discovery, Burnham had received a message from an old friend. It looked like they might be in trouble, and she wanted to rescue them immediately. Saru forbade it, making it clear that Discovery needed to get ready for another upcoming mission. When Burnham decided to defy orders, it put Saru in an awful situation. As this episode came to a close, Burnham had to suffer the consequences of this decision. Now Burnham evokes an ancient tradition in ‘Unification 3’. I was able to watch this episode and here is what I thought of it.
You can read the premise for ‘Unification 3’ here:
While grappling with the fallout of her recent actions, and what her future might hold, Burnham agrees to represent the Federation in an intense debate about the release of politically sensitive – but highly valuable – Burn data.
The crew must deal with more big changes in ‘Unification 3’. They find out things have changed a lot on Vulcan, with the planet having a new name for starters. When Burnham finds out they might have access to important data, she invokes an ancient tradition. When Burnham meets her advocate, it surprises her a bit. Yet it turns out this process may be tougher than Burnham expected it to be. As this episode comes to a close, Burnham ends up getting the data she is seeking.
