After twelve long years of waiting for new episodes of Star Trek, eight weeks should be a cake walk, right? The first part of Star Trek: Discovery’s first season is done, and we take a moment to reflect on what we’ve seen so far. How did it measure up to our expectations? What are our overall impressions?

In this episode of The Edge, hosts Brandon-Shea Mutala, Mike Schindler, and Amy Nelson are joined by Tom Elliot of The Twilight Zone Podcast to reflect on the first nine episodes of Star Trek: Discovery. We talk about the design of the show, the spore drive, spinning saucer sections, Klingons, characters, the story, and much more.
