What’s Past Is Prologue.
As Lorca makes a play for control of the Terran Empire, Emperor Georgiou takes shelter after failing to stop his advance on the throne room. Back aboard Discovery, acting Captain Saru inspires the crew to lead a direct assault on the mycelium orb that powers the ISS Charon-a plan that sends Stamets on a trip through the forest.
In this episode of The Edge, host Brandon-Shea Mutala is joined by Patrick Devlin of Warp Five and Richard Marquez of Earl Grey to discuss the thirteenth episode of Star Trek: Discovery, “What’s Past Is Prologue.” We discuss the characters, the Mirror Universe, Spock, the mycelial network, and more.
