Synopsis: The Discovery crew gets a surprise new crew member from the Enterprise who takes them to investigate a series of spatial phenomena and an apparent mental breakdown of Michael Burnham's adopted brother: Spock.

Reaction: This season definitely feels more like the Star Trek that I've come to love. And Anson Mount proves to be pitch perfect casting to fill a role that had been filled by three different men before.

Personal Rating: 8/10

Random Trivia For This Title:

  • Perpetual Infinity: Michael's father is played by Sonequa Martin-Green's real life husband, Kenric Green.
  • If Memory Serves: The episode won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Prosthetic Makeup for a Series, Limited Series, Movie or Special.
  • The Sound of Thunder: The title could be a reference to the short story "A Sound of Thunder" by [?] Ray Bradbury about time travelers altering an event in the past which changes the future. This could be foreshadowing possible time travel in future episodes.
  • The Sound of Thunder: The pylon in Commander Saru's home village is the same design as the obelisk from [Star Trek: The Original Series: The Paradise Syndrome (1968)], just turned upside down.
  • The Sound of Thunder: Conspicuously, neither of the two species living on Kaminar are called "Kaminari." This is an inside joke for people who speak Japanese as "kaminari" is Japanese for "thunder."
  • An Obol for Charon: The title of this episode refers to the ancient practice of placing a coin in the mouth of a dead person before burial to pay the fare for transportation to the land of the dead. This episode deals strongly with transition from life to death.
  • Point of Light: At the end of the episode, Ash leaves Voq's son on the planet Boreth at a Klingon monastery. In ["Star Trek: The Next Generation" (1987)], Worf will visit the monastery in [Rightful Heir (#6.23)].
  • Point of Light: First appearance of Klingons with hair on Discovery.
  • New Eden: Jonathan Frakes previously directed Star Trek: First Contact (1996), which likewise explored the aftermath of World War III.
  • New Eden: Marina Sirtis, who played the character of Counselor Deanna Troi on [Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987)], showed up on the set, having been invited by director Jonathan Frakes.
  • Brother: New character Jett Reno may be homage to first female attorney general, [?] Janet Reno.
  • Brother: Captain Christopher Pike finds a fortune cookie letter on the floor in the ready room which reads "Not every cage is a prison, not every loss eternal." Captain Pike, played by Jeffrey Hunter, was the protagonist of "The Cage," the first [Star Trek: The Original Series (1966) pilot].
  • Such Sweet Sorrow: The credits list a "Yeoman Colt" who is not named onscreen. This is the same character that was played by Laurel Goodwin in the original series pilot [The Cage].
