Robert Meyer Burnett weighs in on STAR TREK: DISCOVERY, the prime canon timeline and more …

On February 18, 2019, RMB joined the cast of Midnight’s Edge to discuss the state of Star Trek and the differences between the Star Trek multiverse and the canon established by the original series. Here are highlights from that conversation …

From the Midnight’s Edge video description:

On February 7th of 2019, Midnight’s Edge released a 50 minute documentary which documented the history of the Star Trek rights and they key players associated with them. The perhaps biggest revelation was that the prime timeline is a construct of Paramount’s alternate license, and not part of the original Star Trek canon, as fans have been lead to believe for a decade.


To many watching, this was a shocking revelation. One who was asked about the veracity of the claims we made in that video, was Robert Meyer Burnett.

In addition to being a well known Youtube personality from among others the John Campea show and Collider Heros, Burnett is an industry professional and Star Trek superfan, with both connections to and personal experience with the production of Star Trek.

Interesting and enjoyable. After all, who doesn’t like to talk a little Trek every now and then?
