In Star Trek: Discovery, the only reason Burnham was going to have one way trip because time crystal was going to burn out after opening wormhole.

But, in the season 2 finale, we saw that

she opened multiple wormholes successfully to the past before jumping to the future.

How was she able to do that?

  • She jumped into past.

1 Answer 1


1. Burnham was making shorter jumps into the recent past (literally writing her own history)
2. Only Burnham was making those jumps

Also remember that

the plan was to take Burnham and Discovery to the future. That trip was one-way. As we see with Burnham's mother, single person jumps don't seem to take anywhere near as much energy.
