Will You Take My hand?

Will You Take My hand? is the title of the season finale and 15th episode of Star Trek: Discovery. It premiered on the 11th of February 2018 on CBS All Access and one day later worldwide on Netflix. In this episode, the voice of L'Rell spoke the introduction line "Previously on Star Trek: Discovery" in Klingon: Hov leng: DISqa'vI'rIy lut 'ay' vorgh.


While carrying out a desperate plan to attack the Klingon Empire in order to win the war, the Federation even tries a more secret plan which would result in the entire destruction of the Klingon Homeworld Kronos. Burnham finds an alternative way and ends the war in a more Starfleet-like manner.

See the detailed summary at   Memory Alpha.

Klingon dialogues

There are a few lines at the beginning of the episode. Ash Tyler speaks Klingon during a Klingon game called tISang, and at the end of the episode, L'Rell holds an epic speech at the Klingon High Council.
