Rank #3: 3: Creative Discovery

Podcast cover

Behind the scenes of cast and crew.   When the first new Star Trek show in more than a decade was announced, the first question many people asked was who would be responsible for bringing the franchise back to television. Over the past year, that question has been answered as a roster of top-tier talent was introduced bit by bit, both behind and in front of the camera. This crew covers the creative spectrum from veterans who have worked on all aspects of Trek’s past to rookies who have grown up with the franchise as fans but never worked on it.

In this episode of The Edge, hosts Mike Schindler and Aaron Harvey are joined by guests Sarah Buck and Brandi Jackola for a look at who is working behind the scenes on Star Trek: Discovery. We discuss the past work of the cast and crew, and what we can expect them to bring to the franchise.

Starbases and the USS Saratoga.

As Discovery’s first season winds down and the war against the Klingons reaches its climax, Admiral Cornwell is all about the numbers. There’s a twenty here, a twelve there, a nineteen and a one. What does it all mean, and have these numerical locales played a role in past Star Trek?

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 key character moments, the status of the way, and the magical spore plan. We also explore appearances in past Star Trek by the USS Saratoga, Starbase Twelve (there are more than you think) and Starbase One (not so much).

Brother.

Following the freshman season of Star Trek: Discovery and the offseason news that followed, it’s difficult to know what to expect from the show’s sophomore outing. But if the first episode is any indication, fans are in for a treat. “Brother” fantastically opens the new season with a feeling of hope and exploration, and brings in a beloved-but-mysterious character from The Original Series: Captain Christopher Pike. With the war against the Klingons behind them, our heroes can set out on a true adventure of exploration.

In this episode of The Edge, hosts Amy Nelson and Patrick Devlin discuss the season-two opener of Star Trek: Discovery, including the arrival of Captain Pike, a strengthened focus on the bridge crew, the emotional scenes between Burnham and Sarek as well as Tilly and Stamets, and the amazing cinematography.

Nearly two years after CBS announced that the Star Trek story would continue in a fifth spinoff series, the pilot episode, “The Vulcan Hello,” has arrived. Following a star-studded red-carpet premiere at Arclight Cinerama Dome in Hollywood on September 19, fans will get their first full look at Star Trek: Discovery on September 24.

In this episode of The Edge, on the eve of the long-awaited launch, host Mike Schindler beams in Trek.fm creator and publisher C Bryan Jones for one last speculative discussion of details ranging from the timeline to props to uniforms. Oh … there are also those Klingons and everyone’s favorite C word: canon. And when it’s all done, we have one more announcement.

Context Is for Kings.

It could be said that the third episode of Star Trek: Discovery is the show’s second pilot. We see the USS Discovery for the first time, and meet her captain and crew. However, this introduction only leads to questions. What is the primary mission of the NCC-1031? Who is to be trusted? Although we are familiar with Saru, six months have passed since we last saw him, and his character and relationship with Burnham have changed. Through Burnham’s eyes, we are sizing up our new home, and many of the people we meet do not instill a feeling of comfort or trust.

In this episode of The Edge, hosts Brandon-Shea Mutala and Amy Nelson are joined by Duncan Barrett of Primitive Culture and former Earl Grey host Lee Hutchison to discuss “Context Is for Kings.” We compare this episode with the two-part pilot and highlight the new characters with whom Burnham must interact.

In the news segment, Mike and Duncan discuss the first Discovery tie-in book, Desperate Hours, by David Mack. And be sure to tune in to the next episode of Literary Treks, where Mack himself will take us behind the scenes of the novel’s writing.

Drastic Measures. For almost forty years, the adventures of the characters we love to watch have been continued in novels that tell new adventures and expand upon onscreen events. But these have generally been accepted as having no impact on TV episodes or movies. Star Trek: Discovery is a bit different. Fan-favorite novelist Kirsten Beyer was hired not only to write for the show but to maintain continuity wherever possible between Discovery and tie-in fiction. With this in mind, what can we learn about the crews of the USS Discovery and USS Shenzhou from the novels and comics?

In this episode of The Edge, host Brandon-Shea Mutala is joined by Dan Gunther and Bruce Gibson of Literary Treks to discuss Dayton Ward’s new Star Trek: Discovery novel Drastic Measures, tying it in to the Original Series episode “The Conscience of the King” and how Prime Lorca may be a lot more similar to Mirror Lorca than we realized.
