Finally the show seems to find its pace after introductory episodes. Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) has to contribute to the war effort but seems to be the only one interested in understanding the mysterious giant “tardigrad” found on the USS Glenn rather than using it simply to kill Klingons.

As I easily predicted, Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) doesn’t remain in jail very long. After 6 months she gets transferred with other prisoners but the shuttle she travels in is intercepted by the starship USS Discovery. There, Captain Gabriel Lorca (Jason Isaacs) assigns Burnham to the engineering section where she discovers that there’s a top secret project under development.

The episode is the direct continuation of the previous one, with the situation that quickly rushes between the Klingon and the Federation ships arrived after the alarm launched by USS Shenzhou Captain Philippa Georgiou (Michelle Yeoh).

“The Vulcan Hello” is the pilot episode of the TV show “Star Trek: Discovery”, which marks the return of Star Trek’s historical saga on the small screen, though updated as it’s available in the USA on the CBS All Access Streaming Platform and in many other nations on Netflix.

In “The Vulcan Hello”, the crew of the starship USS Shenzhou discover an unidentified object during a mission that’s supposed to be about repairing an interstella communications relay and First Officer Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) has to investigate.

They suspect that someone voluntarily damaged the communications relay, in fact Burnham finds a klingon who attacks her and she’s forced to kill him. In dealing with the consequences of that discovery, the First Officer finds herself in disagreement with Captain Philippa Georgiou (Michelle Yeoh).
