Chabon’s Star Trek: Short Treks

1 min read

At last week’s San Diego Comic-Con, fans were told about a series of four short (ten to fifteen minutes each) Star Trek: Discovery episodes to be called Star Trek: Short Treks.

Author Michael Chabon (The Mysteries of Pittsburgh, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, etc). will be writing one of those
Short Treks; the fourth one. His Short Trek will feature a new character called Craft (Aldis Hodge) and it will be the story of a “man who finds himself the only human on board a deserted ship.”

Chabon posted about the episode today, revealing that his episode, called Calypso, had already been shot. “A few weeks ago, I flew to Toronto to be on the set of #STARTREKDISCOVERY for the three-day shoot of a short film I wrote,” said Chabon. “Mine’s entitled Calypso. It stars the blazingly talented @aldis_hodge, was directed by the brilliant #OlatundeOsunsanmi, and while all of that is very exciting, the most exciting part of all, personally, was the moment you see here, in this photo. I did not say ‘Ahead, warp factor 4, Mr. Sulu,’ or ‘Make it so!’, because after all I was aboard the Discovery, not the Enterprise. But I thought both of those things. I thought them very hard.”

Any fan who has had the opportunity to sit in a Captain’s chair knows that feeling.
