Star Trek: Discovery continues this week with “Project Daedalus,” the ninth episode of the season, and we’ve got a set of new photos from the next entry in this year’s story — where the Discovery crew ventures to Section 31 headquarters while the secret threat of Airiam appears to rear its head.
This week we’ll see the return of Admiral Cornwell (Jayne Brook) and she joins the Discovery after the ship’s escape from Section 31 in last week’s episode, and her first encounter with Spock (Ethan Peck) as a fugitive from Starfleet.

It also seem’s we will have a ladies-only landing party — consisting of Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green), Airiam (Hannah Cheesman), and Nhan (Rachael Ancheril) — as the trio explore what looks to be a dangerous situation.
And in case you missed it, here’s the video preview for the episode, which features Spock and Burnham encountering the telepathic Talosians, seen in Star Trek this week for the first time since 1966’s “The Menagerie.”
PROJECT DAEDALUS — When the Discovery crew infiltrates Section 31’s headquarters, suspicions arise that the crew may have a traitor in their midst. Burnham tries to help Spock but her efforts don’t go as planned.
The episode features a story from Discovery’s Season 3 co-showrunner Michelle Paradise and is directed by returning favorite Jonathan Frakes, back for the second time this season.

In addition to these new images from “Project Daedalus,” CBS also released a number of new images of the Talosian-centric scenes from last week’s “If Memory Serves,” held until after the episode’s airing due to the spoilers they contain.
