Photos and Trailer of “Star Trek: Discovery” Episode 6 – Lethe

Burnham enters the nebula aboard a shuttle

Episodic photos of Lethe released

Star Trek: Discovery is now in full swing.

This week’s episode titled Lethe is the sixth episode in the series.  CBS has provided us with some episodic photos for the episode which airs tomorrow on CBS All Access in the US, and Space channel in Canada – followed by Netflix on Monday for the rest of the world.

If the name “Lethe” sounds familiar to you, that may be because a character with the same name appeared in a Star Trek: The Original Series episode.  That episode, named Dagger of the Mind, has a therapist named Lethe who works at the Tantalus Penal Colony on Tantalus V.

It looks like Captain Gabriel Lorca and Lieutenant Ash Tyler have some unfinished business aboard the Klingon penal vessel.  In last week’s episode, both the men were prisoners aboard the Klingon ship but managed to escape.  Tyler had been on the ship since the Battle at the Binaries, six months earlier.

About Enrico Pastellio

Rico became a Star Trek fan after being introduced to it during Star Trek Enterprise's run. After finishing that series, he went back watching TNG, DS9, VOY, and most of the movies. He's a big fan of Star Trek (2009) for its action, but favors the cerebral nature of each tv series. When Rico first heard about the new Star Trek Discovery series (then just know as 'Star Trek'), he immediately wanted to start up a new site about the show. You can email him at enrico@ncc-1031.com.
