The Edge: A Star Trek Discovery Podcast

Nov 10, 2020

Far from Home.

Michael Burnham’s arrival in the year 3188 gave us our first glimpse of the far future and revealed hints about the cataclysmic event known as the Burn, as well as the seeming demise of the United Federation of Planets as a galactic power. But what about the crew of the USS Discovery? “That Hope Is You, Part 1” left them in the shadows. But while the first episode of Season 3 was all Michael, the second is all everyone else.

In this episode of The Edge, host C Bryan Jones shares thoughts on the arrival of the USS Discovery—one year after Michael. Among the points covered are Saru’s leadership, how the back and forth between him and Georgiou reflects real-world debate over approaches to diplomacy and one another, and what her comments could mean for the Section 31 series. We also delight in the inclusion of the bridge crew, Jett Reno’s wit, and the reveal of the long-sought connection between the Short Treks episode “Calypso” and Star Trek: Discovery. And, in the Notes segment, we dig deep into Star Trek’s past to uncover connections to rubindium, transtators, and Coridan.
