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!
I am not a classic Trekkie. I can count the number of pre-Discovery Star Trek episodes I’ve seen on one hand. It simply wasn’t my thing when I was growing up — though I’ve come to believe I probably would have loved the shows. I can’t rewrite the past and I don’t really have an interest in watching the classic shows in this day and age…so instead, I watched and loved Star Trek: Lower Decks!
TV Show Rating: 10/10 – Fantastic!
I’ve seen both seasons of Star Trek: Discovery and have enjoyed that show well enough. I watched Picard and don’t think very much of it. I enjoyed all the J.J. Abrams movies. But man, Lower Decks is the bee’s knees. Lower Decks is my Star Trek now. It’s smartly written, it’s legitimately funny and it’s clearly made by Star Trek fans for Star Trek fans. And that’s pretty neat! So join me after the jump for my review of the first season of Star Trek: Lower Decks!
Expect FULL SPOILERS for the first season of Lower Decks.

I have never been much of a Star Trek fan, but I’ve finally found my series: Lower Decks! The animated, Rick and Morty-esque cartoon, is a real delight! A bunch of episodes have come out so far and they’re all great! And a new trailer was revealed for the rest of the season at recent Star Trek Day.
Love the show. If you’ve got CBS All Access, give it a watch! It’s true to the spirit of Star Trek, while also being well-written and hilarious.
There was also a trailer for the next season for Star Trek: Discovery. I enjoy that show as well, for the most part.
Now that I have Lower Decks, I don’t know if I need Discovery anymore…not that I need either. But hey, Discovery is still going, so hopefully people are enjoying it.
But seriously, watch Lower Decks, it’s my new must-watch cartoon now that BoJack Horseman, Steven Universe and Adventure Time are over, and we don’t know if we’ll get a season 3 of Harley Quinn, and Rick and Morty remains up in the various airs.
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…
