The Edge: A Star Trek Discovery Podcast

Sep 29, 2017

The Vulcan Hello / Battle at the Binary Stars.

On September 24, 2017, after twelve long years, the fallow times of Star Trek ended. The long-awaited seventh installment in the television franchise—Star Trek: Discovery—arrived and brought with it a whirlwind of emotions. Finally, two years’ worth of speculation has been laid to rest.

In this episode of The Edge, hosts Brandon-Shea Mutala, Amy Nelson, Aaron Harvey, and Mike Schindler discuss their reactions to the first two episodes, “The Vulcan Hello” and “Battle at the Binary Stars.” We discuss the characters, special effects, editing, Klingons, and the sense of camaraderie among the characters. We also speculate on what is to come in the next thirteen episodes.
