“Star Trek: Short Treks” (CBS All Access streaming anytime) Still paying for your CBS All Access subscription and waiting impatiently until January for new “Star Trek: Discovery” episodes? Relax. CBS is offering “Short Treks,” 10-minute short films that “take a deeper dive into key Star Trek characters or themes.” You get one of those a month until January. Suck on ’em slowly.
