A mission takes a bad turn in ‘Mining the Mind’s Mines’
Last time on Star Trek: Lower Decks, Boimler decided to take more risks. At first these seemed to be going well, until he agreed to help an alien with something. Once this happened he found himself running for his life from a powerful foe. While this was going on Mariner got assigned a boring mission while Rutherford got to do something really exciting. When things for Rutherford took a dangerous turn Mariner wanted to help but this proved to not be an easy thing to do. As this episode came to a close Boimler made an important decision. Now we see a mission take a deadly turn in ‘Mining the Mind’s Mines’. I was able to watch this episode and here is what I thought of it.

After something bad happens the mission takes a dangerous turn fast. When both crews head into a cave they end up making a shocking discovery.
