“Star Trek: Short Treks” Season 2 “Ask Not”- Anson Mounts’ Capt. Pike Returns [TRAILER]
This year’s New York Comic Con (NYCC) was a pretty big one for fans of the Star Trek Universe: including new trailers for the third season of Star Trek: Discovery and the premiere of Star Trek: Picard. But executive producer Alex Kurtzman didn’t stop there, announcing that not only would new episodes of Star Trek: Short Treks be coming soon – the first one (“Q&A”, written by Michael Chabon and directed by Mark Pellington) was available that day on CBS All Access.
Short Treks are 10-15 minute stand-alone short stories that allow fans to dive deeper into the key themes and characters that fit into Discovery and the ever-expanding Star Trek universe. Follwoing the initial release of “Q&A”, the five remaining episodes are set to drop on the streaming service on the second Thursday of each month. The schedule begins with second outing “The Trouble with Edward” on Thursday, Oct. 10 – with December bringing a double-dose of Short Treks on Thursday, Dec. 12.

Here’s a look at the schedule for the next series of Short Treks, followed by the episode overviews that were released by CBS All Access so far:
