As revealed during the Star Trek Universe panel, the upcoming Short Trek series will feature three new stories about Pike and his crew. There will also be two animated Short Trek episodes, and another live-action episode that serves as a teaser for the upcoming Picard series.

"It'll give background for what happened to Picard 15 years before the new show picks up," said Alex Kurtzman, Star Trek executive producer.

Released on the CBS All-Access streaming service in between seasons of the show proper, Short Treks are abbreviated episodes that offer brief glimpses into characters and stories from around the Star Trek universe.

The next season of  Star Trek: Short Treks will debut on CBS All-Access later this year.
