Background information Edit

  • The title of this episode was first revealed in a trailer released on 20 July 2019 at San Diego Comic-Con.
  • The release date was announced on 5 October 2019 at New York Comic-Con. [1]
  • This will be one of two animated Short Treks in the second season; since Michael Giacchino has confirmed that he will be directing "Ephraim and Dot", and it had been previously announced that the other animated episode would be directed by Olatunde Osunsanmi, logically Osunsanmi is directing this episode.

  • Alex Kurtzman stated that this episode and "Ephraim and Dot" are both "tied to Discovery, but in interesting and surprising ways." [5]
