This time around we’ll be discussing the latest Star Trek: Short Treks episode, “The Brightest Star.”
On our last episode we asked the question:
Keenser: Airlock or Shuttle Pod?
Now, onto this episode’s question:
In “The Brightest Star” we got to learn something of Saru’s life before Starfleet; his “backstory” if you will. There are a fair number of “Star Trek” characters who have had their past explored in some detail, but there are many who have not had that kind of attention (in the film/TV universe). Which Trek character’s “origin story” would you like to learn?
