The Edge: A Star Trek Discovery Podcast

May 22, 2020

Disco Klingons.

Honor! Glory! Death in battle! Klingons have been a part of Star Trek since the beginning. The Original Series saw smooth-headed Klingons, the movies introduced forehead ridges, and we learned more about their culture during the franchise’s so-called golden years of the 1990s. More than two decades later, Star Trek: Discovery once again changed—or reimagined—the look of one of the show’s staple aliens species.

In this episode of The Edge, hosts Liam Smart, Brandi Jackola, and Nick Collinson go full Klingon as they talk about the reimagined look of the species first brought to like through Koloth, Kor, and Kang, including the women of the Empire and Klingon culture.
