Introduction

The third season of the American television series Star Trek: Discovery follows the crew of the USS Discovery as they travel to the future, over 900 years after the events of the original Star Trek series.

The season is being produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Secret Hideout and Roddenberry Entertainment, with Alex Kurtzman and Michelle Paradise serving as showrunners.

Outline

Zora determines the location of the DMA’s creator, referred to as “Unknown Species 10-C”, but refuses to share this with the crew out of concern for their safety. Dr. Kovich consults on Zora’s behaviour, and notes that Starfleet has regulations against sentient systems being integrated with starships. Members of the crew advocate for Zora and her intentions, but others are concerned with her not following orders due to her control of all the ship’s systems. Investigating her evolved programming, Kovich determines that Zora is a new lifeform and can remain on the ship, but to do so she is required to enlist in Starfleet and follow all orders from her superiors. She agrees, and reveals the coordinates. Meanwhile, Burnham and Book attend an assembly of Federation and non-Federation representatives to discuss the DMA. Rillak and Burnham want to contact 10-C and try to avoid escalating the conflict, but Book supports Tarka who has designed a weapon to destroy the DMA before it harms anyone else; the assembly votes in favour of first contact. Tarka and Book escape, planning to use the weapon themselves.
