Paramount+ hasn’t released any new footage of Discovery season 4 since April. Regardless, we do know that newly promoted Captain Michael Burnham will have her hands full. In addition to helping the Federation reclaim its former glory, Michael and her crew will also have to deal with a mysterious anomaly in space. This gravitational anomaly is five light years across, and it can reappear anywhere and at any time. Additionally, it’s wrecking havoc across the universe, in both Federation territories and beyond.
