“Labyrinths” was written by Lauren Wilkinson & Eric J. Robbins and directed by Emmanuel Osei-Kuffour. Here’s the official logline for the episode from Paramount+: “When Captain Burnham is trapped within a ‘mindscape’ designed to test her worthiness to retrieve the Progenitor’s powerful technology, Book (David Ajala), Rayner, and the crew of the USS Discovery must hold off the Breen long enough for her to escape.”
