Outline

Captain Michael Burnham of the USS Discovery and her partner, Cleveland “Book” Booker, invite the people of Alshain IV to rejoin the United Federation of Planets. They prove the Federation’s intentions by helping to fix long-broken Alshain technology. Book then departs to his home planet, Kwejian, to participate in his nephew Leto’s coming-of-age ceremony. Burnham and the crew of Discovery attend the official reopening of Starfleet Academy, where they meet new Federation president Laira Rillak. Starfleet receives a distress call from a space station near Kwejian, and Rillak accompanies Discovery to investigate. The space station has been sent spinning uncontrollably by an unknown gravitational distortion, and Burnham decides to help evacuate its personnel herself; Rillak questions Burnham’s decisions, and later reveals that she was observing Burnham as a potential candidate for a new assignment but has concerns about her approach. On Kwejian, Book witnesses strange bird activity and flies off-world to investigate it, just as the gravitational distortion destroys the entire planet.
