Co-Creator and Executive Producer Alex Kurtzman Announced the Arrival of New “Star Trek: Short Treks” Coming To CBS All Access This Fall

SAN DIEGO, Calif. – July 20, 2018 – Today at Comic-Con International, “Star Trek” fans were provided a sneak peek at the highly anticipated season two premiere episode of STAR TREK: DISCOVERY during the series’ Hall H panel with cast and executive producers. The second season is slated to return to CBS All Access in early 2019.

STAR TREK: DISCOVERY co-creator and executive producer Alex Kurtzman, who directed the season two premiere, also announced at today’s panel the plan for STAR TREK: SHORT TREKS. The four SHORT TREKS episodes will roll out monthly beginning this fall, and will be stand-alone stories, each running approximately 10-15 minutes. Each short will be an opportunity for deeper storytelling and exploration of key characters and themes which fit into STAR TREK: DISCOVERY and the expanding “Star Trek” universe.

Rainn Wilson will return to play Harry Mudd in a short he will also direct, and Aldis Hodge will star in another as Craft, a man who finds himself the only human on board a deserted ship. Additional episodes include a deep dive into Saru’s (Doug Jones) backstory as the first Kelpien to join Starfleet, and Tilly’s (Mary Wiseman) journey aboard the U.S.S. Discovery and her friendship with an unlikely partner.

“There is no shortage of compelling stories to tell in the ‘Star Trek’ universe that inspire, entertain, and either challenge our preconceived ideas or affirm long held beliefs, and we are excited to broaden the universe already with SHORT TREKS,” said Kurtzman. “Each episode will deliver closed-ended stories while revealing clues about what’s to come on in future STAR TREK: DISCOVERY episodes. They’ll also introduce audiences to new characters who may inhabit the larger world of ‘Star Trek.’”

Originally played by Majel Barrett in the original Star Trek pilot — and later seen in archival footage during “The Menagerie” — the character of ‘Number One’ was eliminated from the series after NBC executives, as well as test audiences, responded negatively to the female officer.

The Executive Officer: Never referred to as anything but “Number One”, this officer is female. Almost mysteriously female, in fact – slim and dark in a Nile Valley way, age uncertain, one of those women who will always look the same between years twenty and fifty.

An extraordinarily efficient officer, “Number One” enjoys playing it expressionless, cool – is probably Robert April’s superior in detailed knowledge of the equipment, departments, and personnel aboard the vessel. When Captain April leaves the craft, “Number One” moves up to Acting Captain.
