Star Trek: Discovery returns to CBS All Access this week with Short Treks, a series of four monthly mini-episodes! What characters will star in these short films, with what new writers making their scripting debuts? Sabriel and Ken anticipate the return of familiar characters while also catching up on the news of Jean-Luc Picard’s return and reminiscing about their favorite TNG episodes and commiserating the cancellation of the Stage 9 virtual re-creation of the NCC-1701-D. Why can’t we have nice things??
