What happened to the large time crystal inside gormagander in star trek discovery?
In season 1 episode 7 of Star Trek discovery, When Harry Mudd tries to steal the ship he uses a time crystal hidden inside his ship in the gormagander to trap discovery in a time.
During the ending of the episode he disintegrates the smaller time crystal on his wrist to end the time loop and later he went away with his wife and in laws but the gormagander containing the time crystal was left on the discovery. So the discovery now had a giant time crystal which is powerful to take the whole ship into the future.
However later in season 3 captain Lorca has to go to Boreth to get a small time crystal to travel in the future. Why don't they just use large crystal they got from Harry Mudd in Season 1
