As a bit of a Star Trek snack in between Discovery’s first and second season (which won’t be here until 2019), CBS All Access is launching a four-part series of short films called, fittingly, Short Treks. Now, for Trekkies that can’t wait even for that, the first of the four — entitled “Runaway” and starring Tilly (Mary Wiseman) — has gotten a trailer to tease the upcoming short.
During the first short — which seems to take place after the end of Season 1 — Ensign Tilly finds an oddball aboard the U.S.S. Discovery, one that is in need and might find what she needs from Tilly.
Check it out:
Yep, we’re talking a Predator-like invisible alien that bleeds luminescent, molten-looking blood. That’s awesome, but also not great if said alien is freaked out and causing a ruckus in the mess hall.
We’ll see if Tilly can’t calm her guest when the short premieres its full 10-15 minutes on the streaming service. After that, fans will have to wait until Nov. 8 for the next short, a full list of which can be found here.
Start checking for stowaways on Oct. 4th.
