Star Trek: Discovery has brought us new characters, ships, and stories, yet remained authentic to Star Trek’s ideals and philosophy. Amazing and universal themes that cross boundaries and cultures are found in its stories, and viewers continue to identify with each character on different levels, adding to the complexity of the show.

In this episode of The Edge, host Amy Nelson is joined with Brandi Jackola of Warp Five and Heather Barker for our third installment on themes. We discuss being caught between two worlds, conservation, fate vs. self-destiny, and the needs of the many vs. the needs of the few-or the one. And all along the way, once again, we recognize these themes in our personal lives.
