Some fans feel that the writers of Discovery don’t know their Star Trek, and that they are rewriting Klingon history. But is that true? Not if you connect the dots. Listen to dialogue and pay attention to tactical displays and star charts and you’ll find that the flash points of the Discovery story are the same ones we’ve visited time and again.

In this episode of Notes from The Edge, in which we deep-dive into connections between Star Trek: Discovery and the broader Star Trek universe, host C Bryan Jones uses the midseason break as an opportunity to explore a map of Klingon space and visit seven locales that connect this chapter of Star Trek with those that have come before.
