What is Star Trek: Lower Decks (TV) About?
Star Trek: Lower Decks is an animated comedy series that adds a humorous twist to the renowned Star Trek franchise. Set in the vast and ever-expanding Star Trek universe, the show takes place aboard the U.S.S. Cerritos, one of Starfleet's less prestigious ships.

With its unique approach, Star Trek: Lower Decks successfully combines comedy and adventure, injecting new life into the beloved franchise while providing a fresh perspective on the daily lives and misadventures of those who maintain order in the vastness of space.
