Star Trek fans love callbacks to events and people previously mentioned in the franchise. With the focus of both film and television voyages shifting toward an extended universe, fans were wondering what references the new writers might make to previous Trek.

In this episode of The Edge, host Mike Schindler is joined by Star Trek expert John Tenuto to discuss their favorite examples of Easter eggs—those hidden references that delight the über fan—in the first nine episodes of Star Trek: Discovery.

And in our opening segment, Brandon-Shea Mutala is joined by Michael Wong, a graduate student in planetary science at the California Institute of Technology and the host of Strange New Worlds: A Science & Star Trek, to talk about the mycelium network and whether it is a plausible science fiction premise.
