The Star Trek: Discovery spin-off series ‘Short Treks’ has arrived in the UK for the first time – although Netflix has tucked all four episodes away from view and made them bizarrely difficult to find unless you know exactly what you’re looking for.
Beginning with the episode titled Runaway, the 15-minute mini-episodes are now available to watch internationally. But you have to locate them first.

Just watched all 4 Star Trek: Short Treks back to back and I absolutely loved them. My favourite has to Runaway with Ensign Tilly encountering Po. It’s superbly done. 2nd favourite is The Brightest Star. Saru is absolutely brilliant. 3rd is Calypso and lastly The Escape Artist.? pic.twitter.com/1W5sFCCaiq

Some good news I've only just discovered (if you excuse the pun) the Star Trek Discovery Short Treks are now on @NetflixUK. Would've been nice if you'd told me guys!

So it turns out the #ShortTreks ARE on @NetflixUK – they're just kind of hidden beneath S1 and the various trailers. Nice treat ahead of #StarTrekDiscovery Season 2! You're welcome… pic.twitter.com/jHbZp4YhbH

So the Star Trek: Discovery Short Trek’s have been added to Netflix under the ‘trailers and more’ section at long last. I’ve only seen Runaway, so hyped to finally catch the rest before season 2 tomorrow. pic.twitter.com/Ld53g0FnTM
