Michael Chabon (born 24 May 1963; age 56) is an American screenwriter and novelist.

Chabon is the writer of the Star Trek: Short Treks episode "Calypso", together with Sean Cochran. He is also a writer, executive producer and showrunner on the upcoming Star Trek: Picard. [1][2] The announcement that he was serving as showrunner on Picard also mentioned another episode of Short Treks he has written, Q&A.[3]

Chabon commented: "One of my favorite episodes of any Star Trek ever is the episode of Deep Space Nine, "Far Beyond the Stars"... [It] squarely takes on the subject of race and racism in America, not in the future, in the past, in a really interesting way, but in a way that also clearly resonates on many levels with science fiction fandom as it currently exists or as it existed when that episode of Deep Space Nine was made. You know, that’s what Star Trek‘s for, in addition to all the other things that it may be for" [4]

Chabon is an accomplished novelist, who received the Pulitzer Prize for his 2000 novel The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay. He has received many more awards and accolades, including the Hugo Award and Nebula Award for his 2007 novel The Yiddish Policemen's Union.
