It also sounds like this Sunday’s episode will conclude with the USS Discovery being in an unusual state as the description for 110 says the crew will be “forced to get creative in their next efforts to survive opposing and unprecedented forces and return home” — just where will the Discovery need to ‘return home’ from?
