CBS All Access has released a trailer and photo for “The Escape Artist,” the fourth and final Star Trek: Short Treks episode, which will premiere on Thursday, Jan. 3 at 9 p.m. ET on CBS All Access.
The episode follows Harry Mudd (played once again by Rainn Wilson), who is back to his old tricks of stealing and double-dealing. He finds himself in a precarious position aboard a hostile ship... just in time to try out his latest con. Wilson directed "The Escape Artist" based on a script by Mike McMahan, who's also executive producing the upcoming animated series, Star Trek: Lower Decks.
"The Escape Artist" concludes the rollout of Star Trek: Short Treks, four standalone stories building toward the early 2019 return of Star Trek: Discovery.
"The Escape Artist" and Star Trek: Discovery's first season are available on CBS All Access.
