Star Trek Lower Decks will begin streaming in August, CBS has today announced.
The 10-episode series will air 30-minute episodes weekly from 6 August on CBS All Access in America and on Sci-Fi Channel and Crave in Canada. Distribution rights for the rest of the world have yet to be confirmed.
“Star Trek: Lower Decks focuses on the support crew serving on one of Starfleet’s least important ships, the U.S.S. Cerritos, in 2380,” an updated summary from CBS reads. “Ensigns Mariner, Boimler, Rutherford, and Tendi have to keep up with their duties and their social lives, often while the ship is being rocked by a multitude of sci-fi anomalies.”
Alongside the confirmation comes a couple new images from the animated Trek series, including our first look at the California-class U.S.S. Cerritos. You can take a look at them in the gallery below.
Lower Decks will star Noel Wells as medical officer Ensign Tendi, Eugene Cordero as cyborg early adopter engineer Ensign Rutherford, Tawny Newsome as bat’leth-wielding Ensign Mariner and Jack Quaid as “pearl clutching” Ensign Boimler.
We’ll let you know how Australians can watch Star Trek Lower Decks as soon as the news is confirmed.
