Two new directors for brand-new Star Trek: Short Treks episodes have been revealed at the Television Critics Association Winter Event, and they are familiar names to Trek fans. Plus: Spock!
Michael Giacchino, who composed the music for the Kelvin Timeline Trek movies, is one of the directors. Olatunde Osunsnami, who is a Discovery director and producer, will direct the other Short Trek.
Both Short Treks will be animated, and both will air after Season Two of Star Trek: Discovery is completed.
This season will mark the debut of Spock in Discovery. Alex Kurtzman said that the “gray area of not knowing what happened to Spock” [after The Cage] will create an “amazing opportunity” for Discovery‘s writers.
Heather Kadin promised fans that “When you see [Spock], it’s going to be so different from what you expected.”
There’s no word on which episode Spock will first appear, but rumor is that it might be on episode seven.
