Watch: Things Get “Odd” In ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Trailer And Clip From “Face The Strange”

The fourth episode of season 5 of Star Trek: Discovery arrives tomorrow, but with only two preview images released, “Face the Strange” is a bit of a mystery. Now there is a trailer and clip from the episode that offer some timely SPOILERS.

Odd energy fluctuations…

Here is the brand new preview for “Face the Strange”…

The official synopsis offers some context:

On the way to the next clue, the U.S.S. Discovery is sabotaged by a mysterious weapon, leaving Captain Burnham, Rayner, and Stamets as the only crew members who can possibly save the ship in time.


The following clip (via IGN) shows a mysterious spider running around the bridge as the crew tries to sort out the next clue…

“Face the Strange” debuts on Paramount+ on Thursday, April 18.

The fifth and final season of Discovery debuted with two episodes on Thursday, April 4 exclusively on Paramount+ in the U.S., the UK, Switzerland, South Korea, Latin America, Germany, France, Italy, Australia, and Austria. Discovery also premiered on April 4 on Paramount+ in Canada and will be broadcast on Bell Media’s CTV Sci-Fi Channel in Canada.

Oh, for crying out loud… another sci-fi take on Groundhog’s Day. That is SUCH a cliche. It’s been done so many times.

That, and Discovery already did a time loop episode all the way back in its first season. Don’t recall the episode name, but I do recall it involved Lorca getting killed and then the ship would blow up.

I don’t know. I’m not entirely opposed to the idea, but… eh.

Yeah it’s the Harry Mudd episode from season 1 again although I will point out that’s my favorite episode in season 1 to this day.

So I’m a little excited about it but yeah it’s been done over again and again in sci fi (pun intended).

I do miss these types of stories in Star Trek but I understand why it’s different for others.

The Harry Mudd time loop episode was a good one. I think this one will be different though as it seems, in the preview, that they are going to random points in time.

Ah good point! I’m more excited about it now.

My favorite episode of the show to date, so ditto.

Wow cool. There are a few episodes I like more but can safely say it’s somewhere in my top 5.

Having watched it, it is not a time loop episode. At all. This reaction was premature.

The episode preview shows the original Discovery uniforms. Will this possibly have the tie-in to Calypso?

Looks like it will be an exciting episode.

Yes! I was just thinking the same thing. And the fact that they flash to San Francisco. I have a feeling that Discovery is going to reset its own timeline, which is why they’re being so hush hush with Starfleet Academy, and why it will take place on Earth.

Wondering if this episode somehow explains the events of Calypso — they need to abandon the ship for some reason in a possible future. (wouldn’t explain the registration change to 1031-A) but might be that Calypso takes place in a POSSIBLE Disco future.

Calypso was one of Zora’s dreams.

Oooo…. I like that!

“Face the Strange New Worlds.”

Let’s do an odd crossover, hah.

Looks interesting, which I don’t often say about Discovery.

This one looks good and the advance review I read suggests it’s the best of the season so far.

Yes I read the same! Really looking forward to it.

Lets do the time loop again? It’s just a mycelium jump to the left!

Nice. :)

I watched it early this morning.
Spoiler Free!!
A great bottle show.
They build on their OWN canon and we get a neat surprise (character-wise)
Raynham and Burnham have some character development.
My fav so far, this season.

Worked late so I could watch when it came on. Very strong and entertaining!

LOL at “Raynham.”

Someday, I hope SMG comes to learn that whispering is not always a valid acting choice.

You understand that actors follow the instructions of the script and director right? Because that is where the instruction to whisper usually comes from.

Did your complaint have any basis beyond criticizing an actor you dislike for doing her job? That makes as much sense as the people who blamed Jessica Alba for being nude in both Fantastic Four films. When that was in the script at the insistence of the director and is cited by Alba as one of the main reasons she quit acting.

Oh and don’t tell me no one ever said that about Alba. I saw it first hand right here in Trekmovie comment sections. The “discussion” involved a poster called Rose Pinenut.
