Star Trek: Discovery (2022): S04E12 – Species Ten-C


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.


Discovery releases the hydrocarbon representing peace onto the hyperfield. It is soon pulled into the structure and surrounded by an unknown substance. Members of Species 10-C respond with more hydrocarbons and a light pattern which the crew deciphers as a “bridge language” similar to Lincos that uses mathematical equations. 10-C uses the language to question why the DMA was destroyed by Tarka’s weapon, and the crew are able to communicate their fear of the DMA. On Book’s ship, Tarka plans to use Ndoye to ignite a plasma stream from Discovery that will allow them to escape the substance and fly directly to the DMA’s power source. Reno realizes that if Tarka takes the power source now, it will destroy the hyperfield and all inside it and likely still destroy Earth and Ni’Var. Book confronts Tarka about this, but Tarka uses his upgrades to the ship to restrain Book. As the crew of Discovery attempt to ask 10-C to withdraw the DMA, Ndoye enacts Tarka’s plan and Book’s ship escapes. The 10-C members stop communicating. Reno is able to get a message to Burnham explaining Tarka’s plan.
