Tired of waiting for Star Trek: Discovery Season 2? 

We know the feeling, as does CBS All Access.

Starfleet's First Mutineer - Star Trek: Discovery Season 1 Episode 15

With new episodes of the sci-fi drama not debuting until January, the streaming service has made the unusual decision to release Star Trek: Short Treks, a series that will bring short episodes to viewers focusing on a single character. 

It will debut October 4, with a new episode monthly. In total, there will be four. It's not Season 2, but it's something to tide us over, we guess. 

But what will each episode be about, exactly? 

  •  “Runaway” (Thursday, Oct. 4) — “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, Nov. 8) — “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, Dec. 6) — “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, Jan. 3) — “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.”

Also, CBS All Access dropped a teaser for Short Treks. Have a look below.

Star Trek: Discovery Quotes

Even in fear, Su'Kal, you can still step forward.

Disconnection. That's how this future began. One moment in time. It radiated outward until no one even remembered that connection was possible anymore. But it is. The need to connect is at our core as sentient beings. It takes time, effort, and understanding. Sometimes, it feels impossible. But if we work at it, miracles can happen.
