Philippa Georgiou, the commander of the “Discovery” starship, does her job professionally – she finds new races and tries to keep friendly relations with them. Sometimes this is impossible, because the universe is full of chaos and confusion, there are few people who believe outsiders. And sometimes Philippa’s work threatens her crew with death, because hostile civilizations are ready to kill for their interests.
“Star Trek: Discovery ss 4”: release date, announcement
The sequel to the sixth TV series in the “Star Trek” universe will appear on November 18, 2021 – this information came from CBS All Access. The contract with the creators was signed for 5 years in advance, which means that season 4 of the fantastic show “Star Trek: Discovery” will not be the final one.
The year is 2256. Philippa Georgiou, traveling with her crew, represents the interests of the Federation. Together with her assistant Michael Burnham, the woman stumbles upon an unknown object located on the territory of the Federation. Later it turns out that this is the haven of the Klingons. Their Empire is built on the decaying corpses of deceased relatives.
Michael knows how to deal with opponents and offers to attack them first, but the crew commander Phillip Georgiou hesitates in search of the right solution. Michael Burnham’s advice does not count for Georgiou, because the girl’s parents were killed by a Klingon as a child. This means that emotions may have leaped over her mind when Burnham offered to bombard their lair.
To help the captain make the right decision, Michael starts a mutiny, but she does not manage to hit the Klingon opponents. Philippa disarms the girl and sends her to a secluded place, from where she cannot command anyone from the crew. Unfortunately for the commander, the decision not to shoot at the enemy was wrong. The Klingons attacked first.
The damage to the “Discovery” ship was total. The war with the Klingon Empire has been opened, and now it is necessary to find other ways that can reconcile the Federation with a hostile civilization. The Klingons are a proud race. They will not allow anyone to impose their order, including strangers who allegedly came in peace.
Philippa will act as a liaison between the Klingons and the Federation, and Michael will remain her faithful assistant. There are many more races that do not fulfill the conditions of the Federation and the “Discovery” ship will find a common language with all of them. But will they obey, or will they behave in the same way as the angry Klingons?
The name “Discovery” was not chosen by chance. The team discovers new worlds, races, civilizations and gets acquainted with interesting creatures that inhabit the universe. How long will Philippa maintain her kindness towards the warring Klingons? Who’s next to test her patience?
