The Edge: A Star Trek Discovery Podcast

Feb 11, 2018

Starbases and the USS Saratoga.

As Discovery’s first season winds down and the war against the Klingons reaches its climax, Admiral Cornwell is all about the numbers. There’s a twenty here, a twelve there, a nineteen and a one. What does it all mean, and have these numerical locales played a role in past Star Trek?

In this episode of Notes from The Edge, in which we deep-dive into connections between Star Trek: Discovery and the broader Star Trek universe, host C Bryan Jones shares his thoughts on key character moments, the status of the way, and the magical spore plan. We also explore appearances in past Star Trek by the USS Saratoga, Starbase Twelve (there are more than you think) and Starbase One (not so much).
