    I can't find any news updates, but Episode #6, "Kobayashi", seems to be missing in action Down Under. An Aussie friend said he sees only an empty rectangle where the episode should be - but I'm not even seeing that.

    Does anyone have news on why the delay, please?

    At first I was thinking maybe Oz would just be a week behind, but still no sign of new eps at all.

    Thanks to my friend, Jeff, for this info re "Star Trek Prodigy": "new episodes from #6 will be aired on 'Paramount+ Australia', from next month." [Direct response from "Paramount+ Australia".]

    Yay!

    UPDATE: Australia was promised Episodes 6-10 (which had been in limbo, causing much spoiler-avoiding) would arrive "some time in February 2022". And this morning the whole batch turned up at once (Paramount+), along with the new DSC ep and Seasons 1-3 (which had been on Netflix, but vanished from their back catalogue the day Season Four's premiere was pulled at short notice.)

    I hope this weird stutter is a one-off and not a sign of things to come.

    It is all part of the teething problems when setting up local Paramount+ digital venues. Should be plain sailing from now one. Simultaneous releases are important for discouraging piracy and helping international fans from encountering spoilers. I wish there was a way they could post announcements on the Paramount+ menu pages. I searched the whole site looking for somewhere to ask a question.

    Similarly, when Netflix International put the first four "Short Treks" into "Trailers and more" 24 hours before the premiere of DSC Season Two. Many people never found them. Then we had the expectation that the next batch of "Short Treks" would appear in "Trailers and more" 24 hours before the premiere of DSC Season Three. But they never came. Had to wait for the Blu-Ray boxed sets.

    There needs to be a way to promote all upcoming changes and news on the dowload sites.
