Klingon Great Houses and the Black Fleet.
Welcome to Notes from The Edge, Trek.fm’s show in which we deep dive into connections between Star Trek: Discovery and the broader Star Trek universe—on screen and in print. In the premiere episode, Trek.fm creator and publisher C Bryan Jones shares his thoughts on “The Vulcan Hello” and “Battle at the Binary Stars,” and then explores the concept of Klingon great houses, Klingon mummification, and the Black Fleet. How many great houses have we heard of prior to Discovery? Is the Black Fleet something the writers invented for T’Kumva? Open the notebook with us and find out.
