Meet the hosts.
Welcome to The Edge, Trek.fm’s new podcast all about Star Trek: Discovery!
It’s been twelve years since Star Trek left television, but the wait for new voyages is almost over. As anticipation builds, we gather people from around the network—and elsewhere—to examine all things Discovery.
In the premiere episode of our dedicated Star Trek: Discovery podcast, The Edge, we introduce you to our four hosts, Aaron Harvey, Brandon-Shea Mutala, Amy Nelson, and Mike Schindler, who together with many guests, will bring you a wide range of voices that will change week to week. Find out how we became Trek fans, what expectations we have for Discovery, and what you can expect from The Edge.

Calypso. We discuss the second episode of Star Trek: Short Treks, questioning the reality of an AI, her compassion, the moral issues of a relationship, and whether this story can really be considered Star Trek.

Revisiting “The Vulcan Hello” and “Battle at the Binary Stars.” We take a new look at these episodes with the advantage of knowing the whole story. Along the way, we find that the Klingon storyline is that much more relevant.
Runaway. We explore the first episode of Trek Shorts, including the elements we enjoyed, the ones we felt could have delivered more, and how this short story develops a character we love.
Runaways, birds, and reptiles. We deep-dive into the first episode of Trek Shorts, “Runaway”, to explore what it does for the character of Tilly, and we also meet sentient avian and reptilian species from past Star Trek.
Fan Response to “Runaway.” We discuss all the feedback we’ve received from listeners of The Edge—both positive and negative!
