According to "Calypso," the second of four mini-episodes of Star Trek (otherwise known as Short Treks), not only is Betty Boop still around - she's an interstellar sensation! The episode, co-written by prize winning novelist Michael Chabon, takes place thousands of years in the future where a man on the run finds himself on a Federation space ship where he watches the 1933 Fleischer film "Snow White" which features Betty Boop, Ko-ko the Clown, Bimbo and Cab Calloway's famous rendition of St. James Infirmary Blues.
