I am a huge fan of Star Trek: Lower Decks. I’ve never been a big Trekkie. It just wasn’t my thing growing up. But I’ve watched a lot of modern Trek stuff and Lower Decks is my favorite. It’s a brilliant show with great characters, a great sense of humor and a real love of all things Trek. It’s great for me because I can enjoy the jokes on the show and then look them up online to get the deeper meaning.
I can’t wait for season 3. The first two seasons were friggin’ perfect, and more of this show is going to be a real treat. I want a ton of seasons! I want a full, class Star Trek show length amount! Six seasons and a movie! And we also learned at Comic-Con that Lower Decks is going to crossover with Strange New Worlds. I haven’t watched that yet but am considering it. And, for some reason, they won’t have the voice actors play the characters in live action, even though they look perfect for the live action roles. Weird choice.
But whatever, I’ll take weird choices. Star Trek: Lower Decks arrives on Paramount+ on Aug. 25! Just gotta wait another month!
I have never been a Star Trek guy…until last year, when the cartoon Lower Decks debuted and I was instantly in love! This is the Star Trek for me. Funny, well-written, awesome in all the right ways and full of smart, well-used references. I would literally watch an episode and then go online to learn what all the references were, I was that in love with the show.
And it’s coming back for a second season!
I cannot wait. This show is damn good, and I hope it gets a bajillion seasons. And then I hope it gets some live action crossovers somehow with other Trek media. Paramount is putting out a ton of Star Trek content these days, and Lower Decks is the only one that’s any good. In my opinion.
Season two of Star Trek: Lower Decks arrives on Aug. 12!
Far be it for me to offer free publicity to CBS and the Star Trek franchise; I just want to share this awesome new show with you people. A lot of shows, or at least cartoons, nowadays are putting their first episode for free on YouTube. I think that’s a great marketing tactic! Because who here is actually subscribed to CBS All Access?
Anyway, Star Trek: Lower Decks is a great show so far and I think you should all give it a try!
I think it’s a funny show. Rapid delivering, dry, grounded humor, fun characters, a lot of great Star Trek lore baked deep into the show. It’s good stuff! And it’s free to watch! At least the first episode is…
