Star Trek Short Treks: New Details Emerge!Paul Dailly at .
Tired of waiting for Star Trek: Discovery Season 2?
We know the feeling, as does CBS All Access.
With new episodes of the sci-fi drama not debuting until January, the streaming service has made the unusual decision to release Star Trek: Short Treks, a series that will bring short episodes to viewers focusing on a single character.
It will debut October 4, with a new episode monthly. In total, there will be four. It's not Season 2, but it's something to tide us over, we guess.
But what will each episode be about, exactly?
- “Runaway” (Thursday, Oct. 4) — “Onboard the U.S.S. Discovery, Ensign Tilly (Mary Wiseman) encounters an unexpected visitor in need of help. However, this unlikely pair may have more in common than meets the eye.”
- “Calypso” (Thursday, Nov. 8) — “After waking up in an unfamiliar sickbay, Craft (Aldis Hodge) finds himself on board a deserted ship, and his only companion and hope for survival is an A.I. computer interface.”
- “The Brightest Star” (Thursday, Dec. 6) — “Before he was the first Kelpien to join Starfleet, Saru (Doug Jones) lived a simple life on his home planet of Kaminar with his father and sister. Young Saru, full of ingenuity and a level of curiosity uncommon among his people, yearns to find out what lies beyond his village, leading him on an unexpected path.”
- “The Escape Artist” (Thursday, Jan. 3) — “Harry Mudd (Rainn Wilson), back to his old tricks of stealing and double-dealing, finds himself in a precarious position aboard a hostile ship — just in time to try out his latest con.”
