CBS has released nine new images from “Such Sweet Sorrow” the thirteenth (and penultimate) episode of Star Trek: Discovery‘s second season, revealing the return of an intriguing character.
When the U.S.S. Discovery’s crucial mission does not go according to plan, Burnham realizes what must ultimately be done. The crew prepares for the battle of a lifetime as Leland’s Control ships get closer.
The new photos released today reveal the return of Yadira Guevara-Prip as Po (full name Me Hani Ika Hali Ka Po), who was introduced in the Star Trek: Short Treks episode “Runaway.”
Po is from the planet Xahea, which is rich in Star Trek’s valued mineral dilithium. The end of Short Treks had Po returning to her planet to become queen. The above shot shows Po beaming aboard the USS Discovery. The photo below shows her eating some ice cream.
In “Runaway” Po revealed she was an engineer who developed a method for recrystallizing dilithium—a technology that Scotty will develop for Starfleet over a decade later. It is possible that the Discovery visits Xahea in order to help channel the power needed to use the time crystal they picked up in the previous episode on Boreth. In the trailer for “Such Sweet Sorrow,” you can see Xahea identified on screen.
