S1 Episode 5: ‘Choose Your Pain’

Gary and Addell discuss the fifth episode, “Choose Your Pain.”

After participating in a strategy session with Starfleet Command, Captain Lorca is captured by the Klingons as he shuttles back to Discovery. Thrown into a cell he meets Harry Mudd, a not-so-honest Terran, and a young Starfleet lieutenant Ash Tyler, lone survivor of the U.S.S. Yeager, one of the Federation starships destroyed during the Battle at the Binary Stars.

We discover the prison ship is under the command by L’Rell who tortures Lorca to force him to divulge how Discovery is able to appear instantaneously anywhere in the known universe. On the Discovery, Michael, Stamets and Tilly attempt to find an alternative to the Tardigrade with the spore drive since they’ve realized each jump is causing it more pain. A sentient being must be found to replace it or the S-Drive is useless.
