The first season of Star Trek: Short Treks consisted of 4 episodes used as lead-ins to the second season of Star Trek: Discovery. At the TCA Winter 2019 Press Tour, Kurtzman stated he hoped to proceed with them and that they might be utilized to imminent sequence exterior of Discovery.
“I’d love to expand beyond,” Kurtzman tells ComicBook.com. “I imply, Discovery has been the basis. [The first season of Short Treks] was a check. We needed to see in the event that they labored, and so they ended up working very well. And so, the concept that we are able to apply these to all of our exhibits. Maybe we’ll do one earlier than Picard. Maybe we’ll do one earlier than Section 31. Maybe we’ll do one earlier than the animated, simply in order that we are able to begin getting audiences speaking and fascinated with what we’re doing, and organising mysteries. That’s the different actually enjoyable factor about these is we get to arrange these mysteries that play out over the course of the season.”
