The new series is part of a recent five-year deal between Kurtzman and CBS TV Studios (see "More 'Star Trek'"). Like Star Trek: Discovery, the new series will air on the new CBS All Access streaming service.
CBS has also announced Star Trek: Short Treks, four 10 to 15-minute episodes airing this fall to keep interest high until the second season of Star Trek: Discovery begins in January, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The episodes will include stories featuring Rainn Wilson directing, and starring as Harry Mudd; Aldis Hodge as Craft, the only human on a deserted ship; Doug Jones as Saru in the backstory as the first Kelpien to join Starfleet; and Mary Wiseman as Tilly on the Discovery with an unlikely partner.
