Creating a new way to fly isn’t easy, and some people wouldn’t know the answer if it was staring them in the face … or chasing them down the hall. But Burnham would, and when she makes nice with the creature Landry named Ripper, spore drive took a huge leap forward.

In this episode of Notes from The Edge, in which we deep-dive into connections between Star Trek: Discovery and the broader Star Trek universe, host C Bryan Jones shares his thoughts on “The Butcher’s Knife Cares Not for the Lamb’s Cry”—including Landry’s very bad decision-making and the use of Klingon language—and explores the real-life animal that is helping Discovery avoid crashing into stars.
