Into the Forest I Go.
In a last-ditch effort to penetrate the Klingon cloaking technology, the crew of the USS Discovery develop a plan that puts the lives of Lieutenant Tyler and Specialist Burnham in danger. Once aboard the Ship of the Dead, the pair make an unexpected discovery: Admiral Cornwell is alive and being held prisoner by General Kol. Meanwhile, Lieutenant Stamets is put through an incredible test of endurance as the spore drive transforms Discovery into a 3D camera.
