Star Trek: Lower Decks – Everything we know about the new CBS animation show



Star Trek: Lower Decks is all about the flags.


CBS Interactive

Behind every glamorous Starfleet captain is an unsung squad of lower-level workers who keep the spacecraft going. With Star Trek: Lower Decks, a CBS All Access streaming comedy show that explores life under the bridge, the flags are finally getting their money's worth.

The episodes of Lower Decks take half an hour each and focus on the crew of the USS Cerritos. It is streamed on the CBS All Access subscription service. (Disclosure: CBS is the parent company of CNET.)

Star Trek: The Animated Series ran in 1

973 and 1974, so it's been decades since Trek had a live action show. During a panel at the San Diego Comic-Con 2019, Star Trek producer Alex Kurtzman says he sees Lower Decks as a way to invite kids into the fandom.

What is Lower Decks about?

Lower Decks takes place in 2380, shortly after the events of the next-generation movie Star Trek: Nemesis. This means that the USS Cerritos are in the same period as Picard and his crew and the Voyager in use.

The USS Cerritos will have a bridge crew, but they are not the focus of the show.

Co-Creator Mike McMahan of Rick and Morty described the Cerritos as "a non-important vessel in Starfleet" during the SDCC panel. Cerritos is the Spanish word for "little hills", so the name of a spaceship is not as majestic as Enterprise, Voyager or Discovery.

The spaceship belongs to a new class of ships, the California class, and will feature a completely new design. We do not know yet what it looks like, but we know that a holodeck is on board.

Four Ensigns voiced by Tawny Newsome, Jack Quaid, Noël Wells and Eugene Cordero are the stars of the show. McMahan said the stories fit Trek's legacy and universe: "Every Star Trek is about a family, and our show is about a family, it's just not the same family you've seen before," he said.

Fans of the original animated series can look forward to some extraterrestrials that appeared only in this earlier series.

Newsome described Ensign Mariner to SDCC as a "crazy rock 'roll party queen" and said she was good at Starfleet in all things and should be in the ranks ahead be as her.

Quaid was also on the SDCC jury, saying his character, Ensign Boimler, is on the books and eager to become a captain. He has book smarts but is not so good at putting his knowledge into practice.

Ensign Tendi is voiced by Noel Wells.

Ensign Tendi (Noël Wells) experiences her first working day in the pilot series of Lower Decks. She is a big fan of Starfleet and works in the medical department. "There is no gross alien disease that she does not necessarily want to deal with," McMahan said.

Eugene Cordero comments on Ensign Rutherford.

Ensign Rutherford (Eugene Cordero) is an engineer and has a fresh cyborg implant on his head. "Like Geordi La Forge, he's a great engineer, but unlike Georgi La Forge, he does not solve the problem until the end of each episode," McMahan said.
