Why the Trek: A Star Trek Discovery Podcast

Oct 23, 2017

A Tale of Two ‘Fathers.’ Episode 6, “Lethe” takes us on a journey into the depths of the psyches of Captain Lorca and Sarek. David is unhappy about using the intergalactic mind meld as a plot device, again, but admits the insight gained into the Sarek-Michael-Spock dynamic is worth it. Zach is seeing the darker side of Lorca’s suggestion for the admiral to meet with the Klingon dissidents. Finally, they discuss Lorca’s relationship to Michael -- does the captain truly care for her, maybe like a daughter? Or is she just another tool for Lorca to use?
