If you are eagerly waiting for the animated comedy series to come soon, then you are going to have a very good time now. Now it is official from Star trek production team that their upcoming animated series ‘Star Trek: lower decks’ will premiere on Thursday, August 6. Following the premiere, the 10 episodes of season 1 will be available to stream weekly on Thursdays, exclusively for CBS All ACCESS subscribers in the US.

Cast

It is exclusively developed by Mike Mcmahon, Emmy award winner, known for ‘Rick and Morty’ and ‘Solar Opposites’. This series is based on the members of the support crew, serving on one of the Starfleet’s least important ships in the year 2380. It is part of an expansion of the Star Trek franchise headed by executive producer Alex Kurtzman. It is the first animated series created for All Access, and the first animated Star Trek series since the 1973–74 series Star Trek: The Animated Series.

On Saturday, July 20 at San Diego Comic-Con, fans breathed to have a first look at the animated comedy series, which was picked up for a two-season order back in October 2018. You can have a look at its official site. It’s strategical and iconic on its own. It received a good response from the viewers. The traditional comedy and the built-in audience of the ‘Star Trek’ will definitely attract a lot of viewers, who would be eager to watch it.

During the Star Trek launch show, series cast member Jerry O’Connell, McMahan revealed the voice cast members. The panel was also joined onstage by surprise guests and cast members, Tawny Newsome and Jack Quaid, in addition to Executive Producers Alex Kurtzman and Heather Kadin.

Characters include – Tawny Newsome as Beckett Mariner, Jack Quaid as Brad Boimler, Noël Wells as Tendi, Eugene Cordero as Rutherford, Jerry O’Connell as Jack Ransom, Dawnn Lewis as Carol Freeman, Fred Tatasciore as Shaxs and Gillian Vigman as T’Ana.

Development

For the development, of the show, Mcmahon assembled a team of writers who contemplates his vision and many of whom were also some old names in the history of Trek. He brought some of his writers to Star Trek Las Vegas where they said they felt they fit right in. Even if one of the writers wasn’t wearing a Captain Jellico tee and another didn’t have a tote bag with Michael Piller’s face — the way they talked about Star Trek throughout the panel made it clear that these people are having the time of their lives playing in a franchise they love and cherish.

‘Star Trek: Discovery’, was an epistome in itself and was wholly credited solely by Alex Kurtzman. After this success, he signed a five-year overall deal with CBS Television Studios to expand the Star Trek network beyond Discovery to several new series, miniseries, and animated series.

CBS All Access officially ordered two seasons of the animated series, Star Trek: Lower Decks, on October 25, 2018. McMahan was chosen to create, write, and executive produce the series alongside Kurtzman, Secret Hideout’s Heather Kadin, Rod Roddenberry (the son of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry) and Trevor Roth of Roddenberry Entertainment, and veteran animation executive turned producer Katie Krentz of the newly formed CBS Eye Animation Productions.

Kurtzman stated that the series would mostly focus on new characters, but there was some space for characters from previous Star Trek series to appear at some point without whom the series would have been incomplete. The following month, McMahan announced the main cast and characters for the series.

Statements

During an interview, when Mcmahon was asked about the upcoming Star Trek series, he stated that.

Within Lower Decks, there is a proper in-canon Star Trek show. It takes place during the TNG era. It’s on a ship that feels like it’s always existed there and the bridge crew is dealing with big, never-before-seen Starfleet Star Trek-type stories. So every episode has a thing like that happening in it. And then, on top of that, we’ve got A stories and B stories that are emotionally driven from the point of view of the lower deckers on the ships. So it was an area of storytelling that people had covered every once in a while on Star Trek but never built a show around.

“It was important to me that if you know everything about Star Trek and you watch this show then it fits into the canon and doesn’t break Star Trek. In fact, it grows. And if you know nothing about Star Trek, then all of the canon in Lower Decks feels like mythological, broad understandable sci-fi stuff. So you can still enjoy Lower Decks even if it’s your first Star Trek show.”

When Alex Kurtzman was asked about his show and the reason for selecting the 24th century as the prime time, then his words were graceful. He answered humbly -“ Well, obviously we jumped to the future, and so we wanted a place that looked very different. I’ve wanted to shoot in Iceland for a really long time, so we looked at a bunch of different options and Iceland turned out to be doable — so we did it!”

Stat Trek fansite also stated that – “TrekCore offers one of the largest repositories for information on every Star Trek episode and movie along with all the latest news, interviews and analysis on Blu-ray releases, books, gaming, soundtracks and more”.
