In Episode 5 of Season 1 of Discovery ("Choose Your Pain"), Captain Lorca attends a meeting with a small number of Starfleet admirals to discuss
the war effort, the wider deployment of spore drives, and the scaling back of Discovery's involvement in the war until that wider deployment.
Why did Lorca attend the meeting in person, especially when holographic communication has been emphasized so heavily in these new episodes?
It seems odd for Lorca to travel to meet with the admirals in person in rather dangerous times in what appears to be a fairly simple shuttle that
was clearly no match for the Klingons who eventually stormed it.
It seems that they could have used the holographic communicators for their conference call, or that Discovery could have chauffeured Lorca directly to the meeting.
Is there a reason why Lorca needed to see them in person and why Discovery couldn't take him there directly?
We have already seen admirals appear holographically, including in this very episode, where an admiral appears holographically to announce to Saru that
Lorca has been captured.
