New York Comic Con has proven kind to Star Trek fans this year. To begin with, CBS has confirmed that its All Access series Star Trek: Picard will premiere on January 23rd, 2020. You won't have to wait too much longer to see what has happened with Starfleet's best-known captain since his last outing. CBS will dribble out one episode every Thursday until the 10-episode first season is complete. Thankfully, you'll have some fresh material to watch before then.

For one, CBS has surprise-released the first of its Short Treks mini episodes -- you can watch "Q&A" right now. The short tells the tale of Spock's first day aboard the Enterprise and the headaches that ensue when he's stuck in a lift with Number One. Future episodes will appear October 10th, November 14th, December 12th and January 9th. Yes, CBS is dribbling this out, but it will give you a quick fix of Star Trek.

NYCC also provided a teaser trailer for the third season of Discovery. As viewers will know, this next chapter throws the crew of the Discovery into a far-flung future (930 years later, to be exact) where everything is uncertain -- including the fate of sentient life. CBS still hasn't said when season 3 premieres beyond a vague 2020 window, but it won't be shocking if the media giant gives Picard some breathing room.
