The fourth installment of Star Trek: Discovery feels like our first “real” episode of the show, with episodes 1 and 2 acting as prologue and episode 3 being our de facto pilot. In “The Butcher’s Knife” (I think I’m allowed this abbreviation for Trek’s second longest episode title), we finally get to sink our teeth into the plot of season 1. We learn more about the mysterious spore drive, get to know our characters a tiny bit better, and perhaps most importantly we meet an instant fan favorite: Ripper the tardigrade.
Listen in to hear our thoughts on the latest installment of the Star Trek franchise!
Ripper — a glorified Guild Navigator?
Brian was quick to point out the similarities between Ripper, and his “use” aboard the Discovery as a creature needed to map and navigate the universe from within a glass chamber, and the guild navigators from the film Dune. Editor’s note: if you haven’t seen Dune, it’s a sci-fi flick worth your time, and even if you hate it, you will be rewarded with perhaps Patrick Stewart’s best performance ever, alongside his furry companion.
