Star Trek: Lower Decks Plot and Cast
Star Trek: Lower Decks was renewed for a fourth season in 2022, which was before the premiere of Season 3. Since Season 3 has not premiered yet, we cannot say anything about what would happen in Season 4. However, it will continue from where the third season ends.
The show is set in the late 24th century in the Star Trek universe, in which Earth is part of the multi-species United Federation of Planets. The Federation’s military and exploration division, Starfleet, operates a fleet of starships that travel the galaxy establishing contact with alien races; Lower Decks focuses on one of Starfleet’s least important starships, the USS Cerritos.
Unlike previous Star Trek series, whose principal characters are typically starship captains or other senior officers, Lower Decks focuses on the missions and adventures of the “lower deckers”, low-ranking officers with menial jobs, while the captain and other senior staff appear as supporting characters.
The expected cast members for the upcoming season include Tawny Newsome, Jack Quaid, Noël Wells, Eugene Cordero, Dawnn Lewis, Jerry O’Connell and Gillian Vigman.
Star Trek: Lower Decks Season 4 Release Date
The third season of Star Trek: Lower Decks is confirmed to premiere in the third quarter of 2022. Apart from that, the makers have confirmed that the fourth season would premiere in 2023, although a specific date is yet to be announced.
The upcoming season should consist of 10 episodes like the first three seasons and the rest of the details shall be confirmed soon. The series is followed by Star Trek: Prodigy.
