After eight weeks of speculation, the answers are finally here! Trapped in an unknown region of space, the USS Discovery is attacked by a Vulcan ship. The crew soon learns they have jumped to a parallel universe in which the Federation has been replaced by a sinister organization known as the Terran Empire. Meanwhile, in sickbay, Stamets is recovering from the effects of his last spore jump and Ash Tyler is concerned that the Klingons may have done something more to him than physical torture.

In this episode of The Edge, host Brandon-Shea Mutala is joined by Guinevere Liberty Nell of The Briar Patch and Suzanne Williamson of To The Journey to discuss the first episode in chapter two of Star Trek: Discovery’s first season. We also discuss writing tropes, the Mirror Universe, Jonathan Frakes, and Captain Killy.

In news, Mike Schindler is joined by John Mills of Stage Nine to discuss Aaron Harberts’s statement about what is to come in season two.
