If you can't wait until October to dive into extra features, CBS have been positively pouring them out online lately. Continue below for a round-up of the latest:

First up there was a bonus episode of The Ready Room, with Wil Wheaton remotely chatting with Patrick Stewart, costume designer Christine Clark, and make-up artist James MacKinnon. The sow also includes featurettes giving a tour of the La Sirena set, and looking at the alien makeup in the series. If you're geolocked out of the YouTube video below, you can also watch on StarTrek.com, Instagram, and Facebook.



Patrick Stewart also took some time to have a chat with showrunner Michael Chabon, with their discussion focused on the episode Nepenthe, but covering the series more widely as well. It's a really quite delightful watch, just enjoying to creative and lovely people discussing their craft. You can find this on StarTrek.com and Instagram too.



Here's Michael Chabon again, discussing the final scenes between Picard and Data (also on StarTrek.com if you prefer):
