The fourth episode of Star Trek: Discovery is titled "The Butcher's Knife Cares Not for the Lamb's Cry," and new photos from it have just been released. Included are images of Michael Burnham interacting with two Discovery officers who are far from her friends at the moment, Commander Ellen Landry and Lt. Saru. Also, check out the displayed image of the creature behind Burnham in both the shot with Landry and the solo shot of Burnham. We're guessing that's the latest addition to Captain Gabriel Lorca's menagerie.

Spoiler Alert! (If you haven't seen episode #3 of Star Trek: Discovery, “Context Is for Kings”)

Last Time on Discovery...

Gally.png

Michael Burnham, six months after the events of "Battle at the Binary Stars," found herself aboard the U.S.S. Discovery, still in her prison garb, and still devastated that 8,186 people died because the Federation wasn't ready to take on a united Klingon Empire.

EP3_Burnham-Saru1.jpg

There, she encountered survivors of her actions aboard the U.S.S. Shenzhou, including Detmer and the First Officer of the Discovery, Saru.

Tilly.png

Fans got to know Cadet Sylvia Tilly. She's high-energy, smart, inexperienced, nervous, drools (breath scan!) and she's ambitious, making it clear that she aspires to the captain's chair one day. "The thing is," she admitted, "I have a lot to learn before then."

Stamets.png

Lt. Stamets is deeply upset about the gruesome death of his friend, science officer Straal, and he seems to have little patience for anyone around him, particularly Burnham. But he'd better get used to her, since she's on the Discovery to stay. Did you catch the verbal Easter egg in the conversation between Stamets and Staal? The latter suggested they might win a Zee-Magnees Prize. Dr. Richard Daystrom won one on The Original Series (in "The Ultimate Computer"), and the TNG episode "The Schizoid Man" referenced that Dr. Ira Graves had won one as well. 

Lorca-Menagerie.png

Captain Lorca is a mysterious figure who seems to have his own agenda, operates a top-secret menagerie, is scheming to create an organic-propulsion system and evinces a determination to win the war against the Klingons at nearly any cost. He wants Burnham to be a part of his team, much to the horror of Saru and the annoyance of Stamets. And what's up with him and Landry?

Lorca.png

“You helped start a war,” Lorca told Burnham. “Don’t you want to help me end it?” It’s a second chance for Burnham, but not one she feels she deserves or even necessarily wants. FYI: In a Trek rarity, a character -- in this case Lorca -- uttered the actual title of the episode.

USS-Glenn.png

And then there’s the fearsome creature that Burnham, Stamets and Tilly contended with on the U.S.S. Glenn, which Lorca had beamed aboard the Discovery. "Here, kitty, kitty." What is it? What are Lorca's plans for it? We're pretty sure we'll see that creature again. Will it be in episode four?

Next on Discovery...

In “The Butcher’s Knife Cares Not for the Lamb’s Cry”… with tensions and stakes high as Starfleet continues in their efforts to end the war with Klingons, Burnham begins to settle in to her new position aboard the U.S.S. Discovery.

EP4-1.jpg

Saru makes nice with Burnham, though he addresses his disapointment in her, as he thinks she's soon to be off the ship and out of his life for good. He then finds out that Burnham was not on the departing prison shuttle and is staying aboard the Discovery. His threat ganglia don't react well.

Ep4.jpg

Burnham researches the tardigrade that ransacked the U.S.S. Glenn before Lorca added it to his menagerie.

Culber.png

Viewers, for the first time, will make the acquaintance of Dr. Hugh Culber (Wilson Cruz). He’s a medical officer aboard the U.S.S. Discovery and also the partner of Lt. Paul Stamets (Anthony Rapp).

Ep4-2.jpg

And the Klingon battle deck commander, L'Rell, returns.

Worth Noting…

"The Butcher’s Knife Cares Not for the Lamb’s Cry” marks the first Discovery episode directed by Olatunde Osunsanmi. His previous credits include the features The Cavern and The Fourth Kind, as well as episodes of Extant, Falling Skies, Gotham, Bates Motel and The Son.

Star Trek: Discovery airs Sunday nights on CBS All Access in the U.S. and Space Channel in Canada. The series airs on Mondays on Netflix in the rest of the world.

Discovery's propulsion system is amazing. The use of living creatures to accomplish it is probably why it remained a secret, and was never part of design of future ships.

The creature is somehow not responding well to its role.

People who seem like main characters keep getting killed. For noe I m interested to see where this all leads.
