More Short Treks are on the way.
The two episodes will not be connected to Star Trek: Lower Decks, an animated series currently in production at CBS.
“What’s exciting about it is not only looking at each animated series as what’s the different tone, but what’s the different technology we can apply to these things so that visually they’re entirely different?” franchise lead Alex Kurtzman said.
The animated Short Trek episodes will air after Star Trek: Discovery‘s second season concludes later this year. The show’s second season is set to begin on 18 January.
In addition to Star Trek: Discovery and Star Trek: Lower Decks, CBS is also working on a series starring Patrick Stewart as Captain Jean-Luc Picard. Here in Australia, the Star Trek shows air on Netflix, though we don’t have rights to watch Short Treks as yet (but there’s a workaround).
