Star Trek: Discovery Season 4 Episode 9

Things might have gotten a lot more dangerous for Tarka and Booker as they may face the Federation in Star Trek: Discovery Season 4 Episode 9. Meanwhile, the previous episode saw the president of the Federation, Laira, questioning Michael about the escape of Booker and Tarka. While Michael was looking to help out the search for those two but Laira had different orders for her. Although, Admiral Charles decided to allow Michael to go ahead on the lookout for Booker as she could convince him to return.

On the other hand, Booker and Tarka had a major piece of equipment missing that was crucial for making the bomb successfully. However, it was not easy to get as the material was only found in a few places in the galaxy. Meanwhile, Michael and Booker crossed paths at a similar place where they also met an old friend who could provide them with the crucial material needed to design the bomb.

The ongoing science fiction adventure drama series is based in the Strek Trek franchise and has made quite a name for itself in recent years since it came out on 24th September 2017. Eventually, the show is now in the fourth season, and the viewers are eager to watch Star Trek: Discovery Season 4 Episode 9. However, let us first take a quick recap of the previous episode to find out what all happened.

Star Trek: Discovery Season 4 Episode 8 Recap

Episode 8 of Star Trek: Discovery Season 4 dropped on 10th February 2022 and was titled “All In”. The episode began with Admiral Charles asking everyone to track the ship in which Booker and Tarka got away with the intent to destroy the DMA. Moreover, Laira asked Admiral to find out their location fast because they also had the prototype spore drive technology with them. While she told Michael to stay away from this as she was personally close to Booker, and it might cloud her judgment. On the other hand, Booker learned from Tarka that they needed a rare material called Isolynium to finish making the bomb. Although, Booker knew that they could only get one in Porathia, where the Federation might not track them. Meanwhile, Charles asked Michael to go after Booker and try to bring him back before things got out of hand.

While Michael also had the same idea in mind of going to Porathia as she was quite sure that Booker might head there to get the Isolynium. Furthermore, she knew a broker in Porathia from her past who was a friend of her and Booker. Moving on, Booker and Tarka arrived on Porathia and met Haz, the broker, and his old friend. However, things didn’t end well between the two when Booker left Haz the last time. So Haz first took the money from Booker as a means to settle their old beef. Then he asked Booker and Tarka to catch a cheater in his club, and if they found the cheater, they would get the Isolynium.

Later on, Michael also arrived with Commander Joann and tried to buy the Isolynium from Haz so that Booker couldn’t get it. But Haz increased the price, and she had to pay a lot more than she offered in order to get it.

Tarka and Booker

Therefore, Joann decided to step into a boxing ring and fight a tall and powerful fighter and win the betting money. Whereas Booker and Tarka also caught the cheater in the club. So Haz declared a tie and set up a poker match with another third party who was interested in the Isolynium. However, Booker and Michael worked together this time to beat the third party at the poker game because it would be risky to let the material go into their hands. After eliminating them, Booker won the game obviously since he is the best at it.

Later on, Michael returned after failing to convince Booker to come back. But she told Charles and Laira that she had put a tracker on the Isolynium, and they had a chance to stop them now. Furthermore, it became even more important to stop them from destroying DMA as it would start a war between the Federation and the species Ten-C who are extremely advanced and powerful.
