Eagle eyed staffers at Trekmovie have spotted an Instagram post from director Mark Pellington in which the title for a forthcoming Short Treks episode is revealed on a clapper but that title – Chaos Theory – isn’t the interesting part of the post … the cast are. Ethan Peck and Rebecca Romijin, Spock and Number One from Discovery’s stellar sophmore season.
Alex Kurtzman recently told Deadline that they were discussing ways to bring back the Enterprise-based characters following the massively positive response from fans.
I would be remiss in saying you’re going to see Spock again on Discovery, because we’ve obviously jumped so far into the future that it wouldn’t make sense. The idea of bringing Ethan back, and Anson [Mount], and Rebecca, and the Enterprise…we loved it so much that to find a way to do that is definitely something we’re thinking about a lot.
Anson Mount himself told Trekzone last week that he’d be open to the idea, but that major financial decisions need to be made first.
Short Treks return to CBS AA in the US and Canada later this year, with six all new episodes – two will be in animated form. Details about international releases are unknown at this stage.
