Short Treks finally available world-wide, plus latest Discovery images and updates

Lots of Discovery updates in the final day before the new season starts, including new images, a fun billboard, and a personal message from Paul Stamets. But first exciting news regarding tie-ins to the series:

At last, Netflix have made the four Short Treks episodes available to those of not in the US or Canada. It takes a little hunting to find them though, as rather than being listed as episodes of Discovery or a series in their own right they've been hidden away in the "trailers and more" section of the Discovery listings - This does have a benefit for non-Netflix subscribers, as that makes them viewable to anyone as a free preview!


In other tie-in news, TrekMovie and TrekCore are reporting (but damned if I can find any announcement from CBS) After Treks has officially been cancelled (as one might suspect from the complete silence about it until now), but is being replaced by a series of Facebook Live streams featuring cast and creatives discussing the show. These will be aired after each episode is released, starting from the second episode. The first episode will also have a live stream event, but before the episode, in the form of coverage of a red carpet premiere.

In other Disco news, CBS have released three more pictures from the first episode of season two, Brother:




Plus one from episode two:


And way ahead, Spock from episode ten!


And they continue to roll out creative advertising: Twitterer Marina Kravchuk spotted this cool video billboard in New York, a split screen around a corner which makes clever use of the Burnham/Spock poster:



Here's a really fun video from Netflix, with Paul Stamets giving us a personal guide on when new episodes will air in different parts of the world:



And finally CBS have also been continuing their countdown motion posters online; here's the latest couple:
