Star Trek: Lower Decks boldly takes the sci-fi franchise where no series has gone before: into the animated comedy realm. The animated comedy series from Rick and Morty writer and Solar Opposites co-creator Mike McMahan is certainly a new frontier for the Star Trek franchise, which is mostly known for its serious live-action sci-fi fare. But Star Trek: Lower Decks aims to give a new perspective on the long-running franchise, taking you below the bridge to follow a group of ineffectual crew members. Watch the official Star Trek: Lower Decks trailer below.

CBS All Access is making the most out of the final frontier with a handful of original Star Trek shows. Star Trek Discovery kicked off the latest era of the franchise created by Gene Roddenberry, Star Trek: Picard brought back the beloved captain from Star Trek: The Next Generation, and Star Trek: Strange New Worlds will spin-off characters from Discovery.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Bryan Fuller kicked off Star Trek Discovery with a bang, but unfortunately left before the show’s second season. The executive producer’s departure was at first blamed on the time he needed to spend working on the Starz series American Gods. But before that, there were reportedly budgetary restraints resulting in creative clashing during the writing phase. That means fans only got so much of Fuller’s vision for this new era of adventures in the final frontier. But thanks to a recent interview, we have details on what Fuller would have done with the Mirror Universe on the series, which would have been drastically different from what ended up happening.
