Ahead of Tuesday, May 18’s launch of Star Trek: Lower Decks Season 1 on Blu-ray, DVD and Steelbook from CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment, fans can get an advance look at one of the fascinating bonus features included in the set.

Director Kim Arndt (Solar Opposites, Big Mouth) comments on the show’s special blend of comedy and action.
