The Short Treks pivot from “Star Trek: Discovery” to “Star Trek: Picard” as we get our clearest view yet of the future of Star Trek: Libraries, schools, dour Vulcan headmasters, David Bowie covers, and scary terrorism. “Picard” begins in two weeks and we’re excited!
Two animated “Short Trek” installments arrive, and we liked one more than the other. In “Ephraim and Dot”, a mama tardigrade loses her eggs and fights a cute robot. In “The Girl Who Made the Stars”, young Michael Burnham is afraid of the dark and her dad tells her a story.
Onward to 2020, The Year of Star Trek! We’ll have one more “Short Trek” and then it’s time for “Star Trek: Picard.”
Same old Scott and Jason, new numbering system. Are we living in a Star Trek golden age, and how long can it last? Vulcan Hello returns to ponder the big questions of TV’s platinum age and also to discuss November’s Short Trek, “Ask Not”, in which a young cadet is gaslit by a Starfleet captain.
