After Trek was a companion show to the first season of Star Trek: Discovery, which aired on CBS All Access, and first premiered in September 2017. It was hosted by Matt Mira and produced by Embassy Row in association with Roddenberry Entertainment. It was the first companion Star Trek series and the first Star Trek series to not be set in the Star Trek universe.

A post-episode discussion series with no predetermined run time, in the vein of Talking Dead, another Embassy Row production, the show aired immediately after the debut of each episode of Discovery on CBS All Access. Each episode was also made available as an on-demand release shortly after its initial airing.

The show's format incorporated interactive elements which allowed viewers to communicate in real-time with the host and his guests, through online polls and social media. [1] One segment of each show was entitled "Cadet Training" and focused on past Star Trek episodes that resonated with the most recent installments of Discovery.

Outside of the US, the series aired on the Space channel and on CraveTV in Canada, and was available from Netflix elsewhere, in line with the distribution of Discovery. [2] [3]

Although it was originally stated that the series would be "retooled" for Discovery's second season, [4] on 17 January 2019, it was announced that the series had been discontinued, to be replaced by weekly streams on Facebook Live, [5] which became the significantly scaled-down The Ready Room. [6]
