Star Trek: Lower Decks is an American adult animated web television series created for CBS All Access by Mike McMahan. 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. Lower Decks follows the support crew of the U.S.S. Cerritos in the year 2380. McMahan serves as showrunner of the series.
Set in the alternative continuity, Star Trek: Lower Decks focuses on "the support crew serving on one of Starfleet’s least important ships" in the year 2380. The four ensigns are: Beckett Mariner, a cute, perky and fun-loving member and the supreme leader who always love having fun, Brad Boimler, the smartest member, D'Vana Tendi, a huge fan of Starfleet and Sam Rutherford, the cyborg engineer.
