Now that Star Trek: Discovery’s sophomore season has come to an end, a look back at the Short Treks that preceded it is in order. How well did the those mini installments foreshadow what was to come? Do you need to watch them to fully understand Season Two? Were they just fun little stories to satisfy fans’ appetite for more Trek until Discovery returned?

In this episode of The Edge, hosts Amy Nelson and Patrick Devlin discuss the Short Treks that were released between the first two seasons of Star Trek: Discovery. Having taken in the Red Angel saga, we re-rank “Runaway,” “Calypso,” “The Brightest Star,” and “The Escape Artist” by how important we believe they are to the plot of Season Two.
