The Edge: A Star Trek Discovery Podcast

Oct 12, 2018


The end of Star Trek: Discovery’s first chapter has left us wanting more. And to help us along, as we wait season two, the writers are giving us Trek Shorts a set of four vignettes that expand upon the characters we have come to love over the past year. The first of these shorts focuses on Sylvia Tilly—now an Ensign—as she encounters an unknown being. We also get to see more of what makes her tick when her mother shows up, holographically, to dispense advice.

In this episode of The Edge, hosts Amy Nelson and Patrick Devlin discuss the first installment of Trek Shorts, diving into the elements we enjoyed and the ones we felt could have delivered more. We also look at how this short story develops a character we love … and one that is newly introduced.
