Star Trek: Lower Decks Season 1
Created by Mike McMahan. With Tawny Newsome, Jack Quaid, Noël Wells, Eugene Cordero. The support crew serving on one of Starfleet’s least important ships, the U.S.S. Cerritos, have to keep up with their duties, often while the ship is being rocked by a multitude of sci-fi anomalies.
Back to the TNG time period, and back to animation, which we haven’t seen in over 40 years. The animation style is fantastic, the story lines are fun, and the nostalgia is appropriately used in a way that doesn’t feel pandering at all, unlike DISCO or Picard.
These are short episodes that are easily consumed, and a short season that can be quickly watched in just a single day. I sure hope to see more of this show!
