In a tweet this morning, CBS revealed the titles for episodes 5 through 9 of Star Trek: Discovery, which take us up to the season hiatus in November. A couple of these were previously revealed, but episodes 7 through 9 are new.

Episode 5: “Choose Your Pain” (coming this Sunday, October 15)
While reminiscent of Sybok’s Star Trek V catchphrase “share your pain,” the title likely refers to pain inflicted by the Klingons through torture as the episode will deal with Captain Lorca who gets captured.
Episode 6: “Lethe” (October 22)
Lethe is the river of forgetfulness in underworld of Hades in Greek mythology. Lethe can also mean “oblivion.”
Episode 7: “Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad” (October 29)
Continuing the Greek theme, this title is part of a line from The Iliad by Homer. “…There is the heat of Love, the pulsing rush of Longing, the lover’s whisper, irresistible—magic to make the sanest man go mad.”
Episode 8: “Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum” (November 5)
Switching to Latin, this old adage translates as “If you want peace, prepare for war.” The adage is used as the motto for a number of military units around the world, as well as professional wrestler Triple H.
Episode 9″ “Into the Forest I Go” (November 12)
This title is likely from author and naturalist John Muir’s writing: “And into the forest I go, to lose my mind and find my soul.”
Following episode 9 Discovery will go on hiatus until January 2018 when the rest of the 15-episode first season will pick up again with episode 10.
Episode 5 preview
CBS has also released a preview for episode 5 (the same one shown on CBS All Access following episode 4 on Sunday)
