Developed by Mike McMahan (Rick and MortySolar Opposites), Star Trek: Lower Decks focuses on the support crew serving on one of Starfleet’s least important ships, the U.S.S. Cerritos, in 2380.

Ensigns Beckett Mariner (Tawny Newsome), Brad Boimler (Jack Quaid), Rutherford (Eugene Cordero), and Tendi (Noël Wells) all live and work in the "lower decks" and must keep up with their duties and their social lives—often while the ship is being rocked by a multitude of sci-fi anomalies.

Joining the ensigns on the Cerritos is the bridge crew, including Captain Carol Freeman (Dawnn Lewis), Commander Jack Ransom (Jerry O’Connell), Lieutenant Shaxs (Fred Tatasciore), and Doctor T’Ana (Gillian Vigman).

New episodes of the 10-episode first season will drop weekly on Thursdays on CBS All Access in the U.S.

Star Trek: Lower Decks is the first animated series to join the expanding Star Trek franchise on CBS All Access, which includes hit original series Star Trek: PicardStar Trek: Discovery, returning with Season 3 later this year; the recently announced U.S.S. Enterprise-set series Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, featuring Anson Mount, Rebecca Romijn, and Ethan Peck; and the development of a Section 31-based series with Michelle Yeoh.
