In the past week we’ve been treated to quite a lot of information about upcoming CBS Trek TV shows. The final trailer for Discovery season two was released just before Christmas along with more images and interviews in the new year. We learned some very important background information for the Picard show, and that there’s more animated Trek in the works. The Shuttle Pod crew is excited to discuss all of this, plus the fourth Kelvin movie is described as “shelved” by the Hollywood trades, as the director, SJ Clarkson, moves on to a new project.
Last but certainly not least, Brian, Jared, and Matt discuss the fourth installment of Short Treks, “The Escape Artist.” Staring and directed by Rainn Wilson and written by Mike McMahan, this fun and quirky short entertained and fit nicely in the 15 minute limit.
I think Alex Kurtzman would set some of the die-hard’s minds at ease if he hired someone like Ira Behr, Ron Moore, or DC Fontana to take the lead on one of these Trek shows. I love the multi-verse strategy; I just don’t have any faith in the folks running it at present. That could change once I see the Picard show come online, but man I’m nervous at present.
The presence of Michael Chabon and Kirsten Beyer gives me hope.
Just now caught up on all my Short Treks. This one was absolutely hilarious.
On to S2 premier.
