The Girl Who Made the Stars is about the legend that Michael Burnham explained in Star Trek: Discovery: Brother. “A thousand centuries ago in Africa. The /Xam Abathwa tribe gathered to share a story. The tale of a girl who dug her hands in the wood ash and threw it into the sky to create the Milky Way. And hidden there, a secret buried among the eternal stars, was a message. An enormous letter in a bottle made of space and time, visible only to those whose hearts were open enough to receive it.”
The second episode will be Ephraim and DOT. Ephraim is a tardigrade, and DOT is a DOT-7 repair drone. Ephraim and DOT will be directed and scored by Michael Giacchino.
The episodes will air on Thursday, December 12.
