After more than a decade, Star Trek returns to television! The seventh small-screen voyage of Gene Roddenberry’s creation takes us to a time before Kirk and Spock for a mission on the edge of Federation space. The Edge,’s dedicated Star Trek: Discovery podcast, explores the creative and cultural history of the legendary franchise each week, and charts the development of this new adventure leading up to the launch of the CBS All Access / Netflix show. Once the ship leaves spacedock on September 24, The Edge will bring you commentary, analysis, and fun throughout the week!


episode 71: Goodbye Burnout

Season Two Recap.

With another season complete, the storyline can be viewed as a whole arc. Star Trek: Discovery’s sophomore outing brought us amazing twists and turns that led to great discussion among fans. The red signals that appeared and disappeared, as well as the multiple identities of the Red Angel, had everyone sitting on the edge of their seats.

In this episode of The Edge, hosts Amy Nelson and Patrick Devlin discuss the entirety of Star Trek: Discovery season two, including the arc of the Red Angel and what it means for the timeline. We also try to clarify the purpose of the time jumps and their success—especially in relation to Control’s runaway artificial intelligence, and we announce the winners of our iTunes giveaway.
