"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.
Star Trek: Discovery Seasons 1-4 are currently streaming exclusively on Paramount+ in the U.S., the U.K., Switzerland, South Korea, Latin America, Germany, France, Italy, Australia, and Austria. Seasons 2 and 3 are also available on the Pluto TV Star Trek channel in Switzerland, Germany, and Austria. In Canada, it airs on Bell Media's CTV Sci-Fi Channel and streams on Crave.
