Star Trek: Short Treks are approximately 10-15 minute standalone short stories that spotlight key themes and characters from Star Trek: Discovery and the growing Star Trek universe. New episodes of Star Trek: Short Treks will debut on CBS All Access on the second Thursday of each month, starting with “The Trouble with Edward” on Thursday, October 10th. Fans will also get two new episodes in December, both arriving on Thursday, December 12th.
The full schedule for upcoming installments of Star Trek: Short Treks on CBS All Access follows:
The first season of Star Trek: Short Treks consisted of four episodes used as lead-ins to the second season of Star Trek: Discovery. At the TCA Winter 2019 Press Tour, Kurtzman said he hoped to continue with them and that they may be applied to upcoming series outside of Discovery.
“I'd love to expand beyond,” Kurtzman tells ComicBook.com. “I mean, Discovery has been the foundation. [The first season of Short Treks] was a test. We wanted to see if they worked, and they ended up working really well. And so, the idea that we can apply those to all of our shows. Maybe we'll do one before Picard. Maybe we'll do one before Section 31. Maybe we'll do one before the animated, just so that we can start getting audiences talking and thinking about what we're doing, and setting up mysteries. That's the other really fun thing about those is we get to set up these mysteries that play out over the course of the season.”
