Watching TV projects about the adventures of spaceships, have you ever thought about those people who do all the dirty work? For example, the one who tunes the equipment, cleans the plane and dreams of how one day the captain of the ship himself will give him an important task. The animated series will tell what these individuals think and show what life looks like outside the captain’s office…
“Star Trek: Lower Decks ss 3”: release date, announcement
Thanks to the high ratings and fan engagement, the sequel to the American animated TV series “Star Trek: Lower Decks” will take place. And this became known back in early 2021. The production process for Season 3 started in April 2021, which means that it will premiere in 2022. The exact release date for the new episodes is not known, but it is believed that it will be in August, just like in the case of the previous two seasons.
The spacecraft Cerritos is next in importance after the California class. Its tasks include establishing contact with new civilizations. And every day, the captain of the ship Carol Freeman has to face troubles. Her eternal headache is her daughter Beckett, who began her service from the lower decks, becoming an ensign. Here she met the guys with whom she became close friends.
Brad Boimler is responsible for keeping the ship clean. The captain’s request to clean the deck from traces of coffee is perceived by him as the highest honor. He secretly keeps his own logbook, which is the captain’s privilege – Brad dreams of one day taking this honorable place. But there are no prerequisites for this, since the guy is too young.
It pisses Beckett off that Boimler is currying favor with her mother. The girl never obeyed her and easily violated the prohibitions. Even once on the lower decks, she finds a way to piss Carol out of herself. When some employees spend time in meditation and yoga, Beckett trains to extricate herself from the most difficult situations, for example, from a prison or from a planet inhabited by monsters.
Another friend for the young brawler is Ensign Rutherford, who not so long ago became a half-cyborg. Trying to get used to a new look, he wants to find a girl. But robotic appearance and habits are an insurmountable obstacle to love. Tendi, an Orion from the Science Service, becomes his best friend.
In Season 1, the four guys became great friends, but soon Brad was offered a promotion on another ship and he agreed. Beckett was furious, but there was nothing to be done – she still wished her friend all the best. Concentrating on the relationship with her mother, the girl goes all out …
At this time, a romantic relationship begins to erupt between Rutherford and Tendi. Unable to understand each other’s signs, they are in no hurry, but one day it must end …
Actors and their roles
- Carol Freeman — captain of the Cerritos; mother of a restless daughter; strict, not capable of praise, which is often noticed by her subordinates; adores her daughter, but hates her disobedience, fights against it with all available methods, but to no avail — Dawnn Lewis.
- Rutherford — part of his face is made of iron, which is why he is considered a cyborg; works as an engineer and tries to get along with a new image; looking for love, while not suspecting that his soul mate is somewhere nearby — Eugene Cordero.
- Tendi — gets to work with enthusiasm; once noticing that Rutherford again began to eat pears (which he could not stand for a long time), he decides to infiltrate his brain, because she is afraid that such a small change would later allow him to change his mind about her, and she really wanted to be friends with him — Noel Wells.
- Brad Boimler — a sneaky deck cleaner capable of a dastardly act; at the beginning of the story, reports Beckett’s actions to her mother, as it was an order, and later leaves friends and goes to build a career; nevertheless, his comrades are waiting for his return, and Beckett hopes to laugh once again at his logbook — Jack Quaid.
- Beckett Mariner — tries with all his might to humiliate her mother, but everything ends in failure; in love with Brad, although he is not an ideal man, but a good friend; fights well, has a large supply of ambitions; first does, then thinks — Tawny Newsome.
- From the very beginning, the picture is broadcast on the Paramount+ TV channel and it is unlikely that something will change with the subsequent seasons, of which there may be several. After all, the ratings of the animated TV series do not fall, which means there is no reason to close the project.
- In 2019, the TV show “The Boys” was filmed, and actor Jack Quaid worked on two projects simultaneously. In one project, he played the main role, in another one – he voiced a character from the animated film “Star Trek: Lower Decks”. For two years in a row, the projects coincided in time.
- The Star Trek universe is vast, so it’s worth noting the span of time that the animated series talks about. The TV series “Star Trek: Picard” recounts earlier events, while the movie “Star Trek: Nemesis” reveals what happened after. The USS Cerritos travels around 2380.
