When Star Trek: Discovery’s original showrunner, Bryan Fuller, first met with CBS executives about bringing a new Star Trek series to the small screen, he proposed the new property as an anthology series, similar to the format and style of Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story. That would allow a much wider lens on the larger Trek universe than any of the previous series or films had been able to accomplish. This afternoon at the Discovery panel at San Diego Comic-Con’s Hall H, co-creator and current showrunner Alex Kurtzman announced Star Trek: Short Treks, a series of monthly short-form stories that will function like bonus content and air on CBS All Access in conjunction with the larger Star Trek: Discovery series. “Each episode will deliver closed-ended stories while revealing clues about what’s to come in future Star Trek: Discovery episodes. He also signed on to a five-year CBS deal that would include overseeing several additional Trek series, now including Short Treks and, possibly, another that would see the return of Star Trek: The Next Generation star Patrick Stewart.
