Chabon Writes Short Trek, "Calypso"

And now it can be revealed. Alex Kurtzman announced at San Diego Comic-Con that four Star Trek: Short Treks would herald season two of Star Trek: Discovery, one each focusing on Saru, Tilly and Harry Mudd, with Rainn Wilson reprising his role as Mudd and directing that episode. It's since been confirmed that Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael Chabon has written the fourth installment, "Calypso."

Chabon broke the news on Instagram, noting that he was on the set in Toronto for the three-day-long filming of the episode, which stars "the blazingly talented" Aldis Hodge and was directed by "the brilliant" Olatunde Osunsanmi, who helmed the season-one Discovery episode, "Butcher's Knife Cares Not For The Lamb's Cry, The." Hodge, whose credits include Leverage, Straight Outta Compton and Underground, will play a character named Craft, who will be new to the world of Discovery.

Star Trek: Discovery's first season is available on CBS All Access in the U.S. and Space Channel in Canada. It's available on Netflix in the rest of the world.
