Star Trek: Discovery 3×04 Photos Tease A Return To A Familiar Planet

Star Trek: Discovery

Star Trek: Discovery will travel to a familiar planet soon. Following on from the introduction of Blu del Barrio’s Adira in last week’s episode 3, the next outing – which is titled “Forget Me Not” – will see the new addition and Sonequa Martin-Green’s Michael Burnham visiting the Trill homeworld, which hasn’t been seen in the Trek universe for a long time now.

Adira – the first major non-binary character in Star Trek history, played by the first non-binary actor in the franchise – was established in the last episode to have bonded with a Trill symbiont, despite being human. In “Forget Me Not,” Burnham and Adira will have to visit the Trill world in order to unlock the hidden memories trapped within her. For more, you can check out the plot synopsis below:

“Burnham and Adira visit the Trill homeworld in hopes of unlocking the secrets trapped within Adira’s mind. Back on the U.S.S. Discovery, Saru’s efforts to help the crew reconnect with one another take a surprising turn.”

In addition to that, we’ve also got some photos, which tease the episode’s B-story. Like the synopsis says, Saru – who was officially appointed captain of the U.S.S. Discovery last week – will organize a get-together in an attempt to unite the crew, but it might not go exactly the way he planned.

As fans will know, the Trill were first established on The Next Generation, but they played a much greater role on Deep Space Nine through the character of Jadzia Dax. The species has been referenced before in the modern era of Trek – in both Discovery and Short Treks – but this is the first time that we’ve visited their homeworld since DS9. 

Star Trek: Discovery continues every Thursday on CBS All Access. Tell us, though, are you enjoying this new run so far? As always, make yourself heard in the comments section down below.
