The Edge, Trek.fm’s dedicated Star Trek: Discovery podcast, follows the story of Michael Burnham and the crew of the USS Discovery as they chart new territory in the 32nd century, and also explores the creative and cultural history of the legendary franchise by deep diving into the connection between Discovery and TV series, films, books, and comics that came before.

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 shado…
 
That Hope Is You, Part 1. When we last saw the crew of the USS Discovery, they were on their way to the 32nd century. It’s taken longer than expected to make it through that wormhole, thanks to a little 21st -century problem of our own, but the third season of Star Trek: Discovery has finally arrived. And with it have come some answers as well as a…
 
Discovery and the Mirror Universe. Star Trek first took us to the Mirror Universe during the second season of The Original Series. It would take 27 years for another crossover—in the aptly named second-season episode of Deep Space Nine—and the show would bring us three more outings. Enterprise continued the theme with the two-part “In a Mirror, Dar…
 
Tilly. Ensign Sylvia Tilly is a special character, like few we have seen in Star Trek before. She is human, but there are many aspects of her humanity that have not often been part of the officers seen in past series. It’s a testament to the writers and creators of the show that they could so successfully introduce such a wonderfully crafted young …
 
Star Trek: Strange New Worlds. It’s the show that everybody has been asked for since Anson Mount took the screen as Captain Christopher Pike in the second season of Star Trek: Discovery. At last, the powers that be have heard the collective cries of fandom and announced the return of Mount as Pike along with Ethan Peck as Spock and Rebecca Romijn a…
 
Discovery Season 1 Special Features. Creating a new show is never easy. Creating a science fiction show and a brand-new universe would be daunting. And doing so within the framework of Star Trek universe would be utterly terrifying. Yet all the departments working on Star Trek: Discovery, from make-up to set design, did a fabulous job of crafting a…
 
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 a…
 
Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad. The majority of Star Trek—from The Original Series through to Enterprise—has followed an episode-of-the-week format. Sure, Deep Space Nine had its overall Dominion arc and Enterprise tackled the Xindi in its third season, but it took until Discovery for Star Trek to hit a fully serialized format. “Magic to Make …
 
Discovery: The Missing Story, Part I. Star Trek: Discovery followed two main storylines in its first season: the Klingon War and Lorca’s journey back to the Mirror Universe. When the NCC-1031 paid its visit to the Terran Empire, the Klingon War in the Prime Universe continued without them. Months passed before Discovery returned home, and when it d…
 
Background Bridge Crew. Every incarnation of Star Trek portrays the bridge crew and senior staff as a cohesive unit. One could say they are a family. We also get to learn a great deal about not only the captain and first officer, but also those who sit at the conn, communications, ops, and security stations. Star Trek: Discovery, however, is differ…
 
Unanswered Threads. When a television show creates large, elaborate storylines that are weaved throughout a season, some of the smaller plot points that were developed may never get finalized. What on Kaminar is happening now with the Kelpiens and Ba’ul? The logic extremists came and went pretty quickly, and what’s going to happen with L’Rell’s cha…
 
Ships of Discovery, Part 3. Not only did Star Trek: Discovery introduce a whole range of new Federation vessels, it also brought us fresh designs for some much-loved ones from beyond Starfleet. The Klingons have been part of Star Trek since the beginning, and were a major adversary in Season 1 of Discovery, with their fearsome vessels destroying ma…
 
Ships of Discovery, Part 2. Not all ships are hero ships, such as the USS Discovery and the USS Enterprise. Starfleet still needs the smaller, lesser-known vessels to perform vital functions throughout—and at the edge of—Federation space. Medical, transport, and science ships all have specific day-to-day functions. But when it comes down to it, all…
 
Ships of Discovery, Part 1. Some starships look like cruise ships. Others look like warehouses with nacelles. Either way, Star Trek would not be the same without the myriad vessels shown over the past 50-plus years. Star Trek: Discovery has given us great new designs and updated one of the franchise’s most iconic ones: the USS Enterprise NCC-1701. …
 
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 …

Star Trek: Discovery: A New Host Review. With two full seasons under its belt—and a third to be released later this year—Star Trek: Discovery has given us some great new Star Trek stories and allowed older ones to grow. Through the Klingon War, Section 31, and the Mirror Universe, Discovery expanded upon the culture of the Klingons and the goings o…
 
Goodbye and Hello. Each season of Star Trek: Discovery has brought us a different captain: Lorca in the first and Pike in the second. Who will take the center seat in the third? And just as each season of the series has told a fascinating story before the crew moves on to something new, so it is with this podcast. In this episode of The Edge, hosts…

Ask Not. Starfleet has a tradition of testing its members: Kirk and the Kobayashi Maru, Wesley Crusher and the psych scenario, Deanna Troi and her command test are examples. These trials are designed to judge character, loyalty, and the ability to make decisions. When serving aboard Captain Pike’s Enterprise, the drill is no different. In this epis…

Time Crystals. Star Trek has long used time travel as an element of storytelling, usually to get our characters to another place in time. While the methods may seem farfetched—slingshot around the sun, jumping through a gateway—they somehow have always felt appropriate for Star Trek’s scientific underpinning. But in Discovery, a more magical method…
 
The Rise, Fall, and Rise of L’Rell. From humble beginnings as a follower of T’Kuvma, L’Rell comes to support Voq, the Torchbearer, with whom she develops a relationship that proves beneficial. But when Kol uses her to captain a ship in his fleet—only to find that she has conspired with Admiral Cornwell—the trust she has earned is lost. Then, with h…
 
Short Treks Retrospective. Now that Star Trek: Discovery’s sophomore season has come to an end, a look back at the Short Treks that preceded it is in order. How well did the those mini installments foreshadow what was to come? Do you need to watch them to fully understand Season Two? Were they just fun little stories to satisfy fans’ appetite for m…
 
From Kirk to Archer, captains have always been the focus of Star Trek. But this is not true of Discovery. Captains have the responsibility to set the tone and efficiency of the ship so that the crew can complete its mission successfully. Because Michael Burnham is not a captain, these tasks happen on the edges of the story rather than at the center…
 
Sarek, Amanda, and Spock’s Family. Spock and his family have always been an important part of Star Trek. For half a century, the writers have delved into Sarek’s role in helping the Federation, Spock’s upbringing, and even the diplomatic contributions of both father and son. But Star Trek: Discovery added immense texture to this aspect of the ongoi…
 
Biology in Discovery. Star Trek has a long history of weird science and alien biology, and Discovery continues this tradition well. More so than previous series, Discovery is able to portray things that feel a bit more truly alien. It’s obvious that the writers have a love for weird biology and want to show something different from what we’ve seen …
 
Captain Pike. It seems as if Christopher Pike can do no wrong. We are told that he is Starfleet’s finest, but why is Captain Pike the best of the best? From his command decisions to his personal connection with the crew, Kirk’s predecessor gives hope and optimism to Star Trek: Discovery season two. In this episode of The Edge, hosts Amy Nelson and …

Such Sweet Sorrow, Part II. What are those damn red things? Who is the Red Angel? Why does Jett Reno love duct tape so much? After thirteen episodes of twist, turns, and speculation, we finally have the answers—at least to the first two questions. In a beautiful display of time travel, Michael Burnham set the signals to ensure that present actions …
