Burnham and Beard-Spock encounter a mystery in space; Pike confronts the Klingons and his own future.
Director Jonathan Frakes takes the crew to Section 31 headquarters, located in a former Riker’s Island of space. We learn the backstory of two of Discovery’s secondary characters and the solution to other, before the episode sets up our heroes to fight the System.
