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, Trek.fm’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!
Perpetual Infinity. We discuss Dr. Burnham’s character arc and relationship with her daughter Michael, Leland’s transformation and earned distrust from Tyler and Georgiou, and Pike’s rational command decisions.
The Red Angel. We discuss the ramifications of the story’s many character moments, the funeral for Commander Airiam, the crew’s reaction to her death, and how artificial intelligence can evolve in unexpected ways.
