"Calypso" follows Craft (Aldis Hodge), who, after waking up in an unfamiliar sickbay, finds himself on board a deserted ship. And his only companion and hope for survival is an A.I. computer interface.

Michael Chabon wrote the teleplay based on a story credited to Sean Cochran and him. It's directed by Olatunde Osunsanmi.

"Calypso" continues CBS All Access's rollout of Star Trek: Short Treks, four standalone stories building toward the early 2019 return of Star Trek: Discovery.
