Trailer Reporting For Duty!
Developed by Emmy Award winner Mike McMahan (Rick and Morty, Solar Opposites), Star Trek: Lower Decks, is a new half-hour animated comedy series focusing on the support crew serving on one of Starfleet’s least important ships, the U.S.S. Cerritos, in 2380.
The Starfleet crew residing in the “lower decks” of the U.S.S. Cerritos, includes Ensign Beckett Mariner, voiced by Tawny Newsome, Ensign Brad Boimler, voiced by Jack Quaid, Ensign Tendi, voiced by Noël Wells and Ensign Rutherford, voiced by Eugene Cordero. The Starfleet characters that comprise the ship’s bridge crew include Captain Carol Freeman, voiced by Dawnn Lewis, Commander Jack Ransom, voiced by Jerry O’Connell, Lieutenant Shaxs, voiced by Fred Tatasciore and Doctor T’Ana, voiced by Gillian Vigman.
The Cerritos is in pretty rough shape. The challenge will be what falls apart first – the ship, or its crew?
Star Trek: Lower Decks premieres August 6, only on CBS All Access. In Canada, Star Trek: Lower Deks will air on Bell Media’s CTV Sci-Fi Channel and will stream on Crave.
