Developed by Emmy Award winner Mike McMahan (Rick and Morty, Solar Opposites), 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. 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.

The Starfleet crew residing in the “lower decks” of the U.S.S. Cerritos include “Ensign Beckett Mariner,” voiced by Tawny Newsome; “Ensign Brad Boimler,” voiced by Jack Quaid; “Ensign Tendi,” voiced by Noël Wells; and “Ensign Rutherford,” voiced by Eugene Cordero. The Starfleet characters that comprise the ship’s bridge crew include “Captain Carol Freeman,” voiced by Dawnn Lewis; “Commander Jack Ransom,” voiced by Jerry O’Connell; “Lieutenant Shaxs,” voiced by Fred Tatasciore; and “Doctor T’Ana,” voiced by Gillian Vigman.
