The Edge: A Star Trek Discovery Podcast

Apr 20, 2018

Star Trek: Discovery Annual 2018.

For almost forty years, the adventures of the characters we love to watch have been continued in novels that tell new adventures and expand upon onscreen events. But these have generally been accepted as having no impact on TV episodes or movies. Star Trek: Discovery is a bit different. Fan-favorite novelist Kirsten Beyer was hired not only to write for the show but to maintain continuity wherever possible between the Discovery and tie-in fiction. With this in mind, what can we learn about the crews of the USS Discovery and USS Shenzhou from the novels and comics?

In this episode of The Edge, host Brandon-Shea Mutala is joined by Dan Gunther and Bruce Gibson of Literary Treks and Patrick Devlin of Warp Five to talk about the new Star Trek: Discovery Annual 2018 comic. We talk about characters, timelines, and the relationship between Culber and Stamets. In news, we talk about filming, ships, casting, directors, and more that came out of El Paso Comic Con.
