Star Trek may have started without much fanfare, but its popularity has increased exponentially. As demonstrated by this podcast, the launch of a new Star Trek series is now an event. But how has that manifested itself over the years?

In this episode of The Edge, hosts Aaron Harvey and Mike Schindler are joined by Lee Hutchison and Zach Moore to recount their personal experiences leading up to the release of each modern Star Trek.
