Final Predictions for Season One, Part II.
On January 7, the second half of Star Trek: Discovery’s first season will begin with the episode titled “Despite Yourself.” In the grand tradition of Star Trek fans worldwide, we take a look at what little information we’ve been given and try to predict what will happen next.
In this episode of The Edge, hosts Brandon-Shea Mutala and Amy Nelson are joined by Justin Oser of Earl Grey to make final predictions on what we might see in the final six episodes based solely on the episode titles.
In our news segment, Justin Oser provides an overview of the Star Trek: Discovery soundtrack digital release, and we discuss the Star Trek-inspired episode of Black Mirror, “USS Callister.”
