"When my people look up at the stars," Saru says gravely, "they see only death." So begins the trailer for "The Brightest Star," the penultimate episode of Star Trek: Short Treks. Check out the trailer and a photo from the installment, which will premiere December 6 on CBS All Access.

"The Brightest Star" continues the rollout of Star Trek: Short Treks, four standalone stories building toward the early 2019 return of Star Trek: Discovery.

Each short runs approximately 10-15 minutes and will be an opportunity for fans to dive deeper into key themes and characters – including Saru (Doug Jones), Tilly (Mary Wiseman), Harry Mudd (Rainn Wilson, who directs his segment as well) and Aldis Hodge's new character, Craft -- that fit into Discovery and the expanding Star Trek universe.
