(written from a Production point of view)
This page contains information specifically pertaining to the individual seasons of Star Trek: Short Treks, whose episode premieres were consecutively streamed on CBS All Access for the USA. Netflix streamed the first season for the rest of the world, but declined to pick the second season, nor has any other streaming service showed any interest to pick up the second season.

- On 20 July 2019 the first official Season 2 trailer, coming in at 100 seconds, was unveiled at the 2019 San Diego Comic Con. The trailer featured footage of Anson Mount, Rebecca Romijn, and Ethan Peck, reprising their Star Trek: Discovery season two roles, providing confirmation that some episodes were to feature the crew of USS Enterprise. The trailer also divulged the titles of the six planned season two episodes. The previously teased title "Chaos Theory", seen in social media posts on 23 June 2019, was absent from the listed titles; it is likely that "Chaos Theory" was a working title for "Q&A". 
- As CBS failed to find a non-USA outlet for the format after the first season of the series, the second season only became available for (official) watching outside the USA, when the Blu-ray and DVD home video formats were released in June/July 2020. Remarkably, the Star Trek: Picard introduction short "Children of Mars" was not included on either of the two releases.
- Characters which 'cross over' from other incarnations of Star Trek in Season One: Sylvia Tilly ("Runaway"), Saru and Philippa Georgiou ("The Brightest Star"), and Harry Mudd ("The Escape Artist").
- Characters which 'cross over' from other incarnations of Star Trek in Season Two: Christopher Pike, Spock, Una and Amin ("Q&A"), James T. Kirk, Leonard H. McCoy, Hikaru Sulu, Khan Noonien Singh, Abraham Lincoln, Apollo, Planet Killer("Ephraim and Dot"), Michael Burnham and Mike Burnham("The Girl Who Made the Stars"), and a photograph of Jean-Luc Picard ("Children of Mars").
On 28 July 2020, the second season received an Emmy Award nomination in the "Outstanding Short Form Comedy Or Drama Series" category.  This constituted a milestone in the history of the television franchise as it – discounting the nominations received for Star Trek: The Original Series, when the dictinction did not exist yet – became only the fifth time that a Star Trek production was nominated for a "major", or Primetime, Emmy Award since Star Trek: The Next Generation's 1994 nomination, and of which only Star Trek: The Animated Series won Star Trek its hitherto single one back in 1975. Short Treks however, failed to win the award – which was by 2020 no longer a Primetime but rather a "lesser" Creative Arts Emmy award.
