Before the release of Star Trek: Discovery’s second season, smaller short film-like episodes of a series called Short Treks were released online. During the San Diego Comic-Con Star Trek panel, it was confirmed that three new ones are in production.
These new Short Treks will feature stories focused on Pike, Number One, and Spock, three major characters in current Star Trek fiction. Additionally, two of these new Short Treks will be animated. Further details on exactly what they’ll involve weren’t revealed, but there will no doubt be more information as they get closer to release. They’re said to be “very fun standalone stories” but that everything connects.
The Star Trek panel also delivered details on Season 3 of Discovery which, according to creator Alex Kurtzman, is heading further into the future than any Star Wars series before it. There will be a new character called Cleveland “Book” Booker, who is a bit of a rule-breaker. You can learn more about Star Trek: Discovery Season 3’s new details here.
