Star Trek: Discovery returns with the fifth episode of its fourth season this week, sans one of its prominent crew members. Paramount+ has released new photos from the episode titled "The Examples." The images reveal that David Cronenberg is back as mysterious Starfleet operative Kovich, and Shawn Doyle is playing a new character, a Risian named Ruon Tarka. There are also shots of Saru (Doug Jones) back in the captain's chair and command of Discovery while Book (David Ajala) and Captain Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) embark on an away mission. You can see the photos below and watch the video preview of the episode below.
Lee Rose directs "The Examples" from Kyle Jarrow's script. Here's the official synopsis:
"Burnham and Book race to evacuate a group of stranded colonists in the anomaly's path as one of the Federation's brightest scientists comes aboard the U.S.S. Discovery to do high-stakes research with Saru and Stamets."
