The “Star Trek” franchise has a fanbase like no other. The creatives behind the long-running show are back with “Star Trek: Short Treks,” the Emmy-nominated series that expands on the universe in this short-form series with standalone stories that allow audiences to dive deeper into the key themes and characters from “Star Trek: Discovery” and “Star Trek: Picard.”

“Star Trek: Short Treks” creator and executive producer Alex Kurtzman joined Variety Artisans editor Jazz Tangcay on Aug. 26 for an exclusive screening and Q&A in the Variety Streaming Room presented by CBS All Access.
