STAR TREK: SHORT TREKS Airing for Canadian Viewers Tonight at 9 PM EDT

On October 4th at 9 PM EDT, Canadian fans of Star Trek: Discovery will get a between-season taste of the popular Star Trek prequel when Space airs the first episode in the Discovery’s Star Trek: Short Treks mini-series, entitled “Runaway.” This first installment of the series will, reportedly, feature a story about Cadet Tilly (Mary Wiseman).

Star Trek: Short Treks – “Regulating the flow of content, eh?”

Space, apparently interested in stretching out its broadcast schedule of precious Star Trek content, will air part 2 of the Short Treks mini-series over a month later on November 8th with “Calypso,” which will feature an unknown character (Aldis Hodge) aboard a deserted ship.

Parts 3 and 4 of the Short Treks mini-series will air on December 6th and January 3rd, respectively. The third installment, “Brightest Star,” will feature a story about Saru’s (Doug Jones) pre-Starfleet life, and the final chapter, “The Escape Artist,” will feature the return of Rainn Wilson as Harry Mudd.

Star Trek: Short Treks – “This is nice, but when does Season 2 air?”

The Canadian cable science-fiction broadcasting overlords at Space seem intent upon regulating the flow of Star Trek content right up until the projected month of Season 2’s release. Let’s hope that the airing of Season 2 doesn’t suffer the same release date push-backs of the first season.

Under intense scrutiny by the Temporal Authorities, I was coerced into actualizing my capsule in this causality loop. Through no fault of my own, I am marooned on this dangerous yet lovely level-four civilization. Stranded here, I have spent most of my time learning what I can of the social norms and oddities of the Terran species, including how to properly use the term "Hipster" and how to perform a "perfect pour." Under the assumed name of "Michael Bedford," I have completed BA's with specialized honours in both theatre studies and philosophy, and am currently saving up for enough galactic credits to buy a new--or suitably used--temporal contextualizer ... for a friend.
