*** This, unfortunately, fails in a later episode, where the ''Discovery'' comes to the aid of the USS ''Gagarin'', which is being pounded by Klingon ships that have been equipped with cloaking devices. A Klingon ship launches two torpedoes at the crippled ''Gagarin''. Lorca orders the ''Discovery'' placed between the ''Gagarin'' and the torpedoes, but they manage to intercept only one.
