Back in July during the San Diego Comic-Con International, CBS All Access announced that it would be producing a series of Star Trek: Discovery spinoff shorts under the banner Short Treks, and now the streaming service has revealed that the four episodes will begin airing monthly starting on October 4th and running through to the season two premiere of Discovery in January 2019.
Take a look at a teaser here…
As previously revealed, each Short Trek will follow a different character from the main series, and thanks to TV Line we’ve got details of all four episodes:
“Runaway” (Thursday, October 4th): 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, November 8th): 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, December 6th): 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, January 3rd): 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.
Along with Short Treks, the second season of Star Trek: Discovery is set to get underway on CBS All Access in January 2019.
