Star Trek fans have been waiting a long time for Star Trek to return to television. Since the end of Star Trek: Enterprise, only the movies have fed our fandom fires. Yet, many feel that Star Trek is best delivered on TV. So, with the announcement of Discovery, reports from fans are as vast as the Alpha Quadrant—from pure excitement to extreme doubt.
In this episode of The Edge, host Amy Nelson and guest Nicolas Anastassiou discuss fan response to news about the show. We discuss our first thoughts on hearing about a new TV series, our worries and concerns, and our hopes and wishes for Star Trek: Discovery.
