A Quick Recap!

In the previous episode, the Starfleet commissioned Burnham to commence an extensive search in order to find Book and Tarka. They violated the Federation’s decision to make peaceful contact with Species 10C. However, Book and Tarka intended to build a weapon to destroy the species. They gathered various parts and built a weapon capable of destroying the anomaly. 

Further, in Star Trek Discovery Season 4 Episode 8, Book was hesitant about going against the Federation’s decision. But Tark assured him that destroying the anomaly would get them off the hooks. Tarka wanted to return to his world by attacking the anomaly, while Book wanted to get vengeance for his destroyed home planet and people. Moreover, Book reached out to a contact to find some Isolinium for the weapon. Burnham reviewed the data and contacted an information broker to locate Book. However, it turned out that Book was meeting the same broker to get his hands on Islonium. 

Meanwhile, Burnham was forced to fight a cage match against Book to outbid him for the Isolinium. Burnham was accompanied by Lieutenant Joann Owosekun, who offered to fight in the cage. Unfortunately, Book managed to secure the Isolinium and escaped to finish building Tarka’s weapon. The Federation also found out about the illegal Boronite mining. Hence, President Rillak ordered Burnham and Vance to stoop Tarka and Book by any means necessary in Star Trek Discovery Season 4 Episode 8.
