(written from a Production point of view)
Michael Chabon (born 24 May 1963; age 57) is an American screenwriter and novelist, who serves as a writer, executive producer, and season one showrunner on Star Trek: Picard. He also wrote two Star Trek: Short Treks episodes: "Calypso" (with Sean Cochran), and "Q&A", and served as producer on a third one, "Children of Mars".
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". 
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.
