The Edge: A Star Trek Discovery Podcast

Oct 10, 2018

Runaways, birds, and reptiles.

While we wait for the premier of Star Trek: Discovery season two, currently slated for January 17, 2019, the writers have put together a set of four vignettes to tide us over. Called Trek Shorts, these bite-sized installments promise to flesh out characters we came to know through the first 15 episodes—and introduce us to some new ones.

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 the first episode of Trek Shorts, “Runaway,” and what it does for the character of Tilly. We also explore sentient avian and reptilian species seen in past Star Trek.
