The fifth and final episode of the new Star Trek: very Short Treks’ series of comedic (and very non-canon) promotional shorts is now online. This one leans into the goal of the series to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Star Trek: The Animated Series.
“Walk, Don’t Run”
The fourth episode (titled “Walk, Don’t Run”) breaks the fourth wall as Tendi from Lower Decks (voiced by Noël Wells) runs into a bit of trouble when she tries to honor The Animated Series. The tagline is “When the old guard meets the new, sensitivities flare!“ The final episode of very Short Treks, features Star Trek vets George Takei as Sulu and Jonathan Frakes as Riker, along with Carlos Alazraqui as Scotty and Cristina Milizia as M’Ress.
