The Edge: A Star Trek Discovery Podcast

Feb 1, 2020

Animated Short Treks.

It’s been more than 45 years since the airing of “The Counter-Clock Incident,” the final episode of Star Trek: The Animated Series. All Star Trek since has been live action—until now! “The Girl Who Made the Stars” and “Ephraim and Dot” represent a new chapter in Star Trek’s second golden age. With the franchise venturing into adult animation with Star Trek: Lower Decks, these animated Short Treks offer something for the younger audience.

In this episode of The Edge, hosts Liam Smart, Brandi Jackola, and Nick Collinson share their thoughts on the two animated Short Treks, how Star Trek has previously represented mythical storylines, and the many Original Series Easter eggs.
