From the original film starring William Shutter and the Patrick Stewart series to the more serious dramas like Star Trek: Discovery and Picard, the Star Trek franchise has been really long and prosperous.
However, CBS All Access is now taking over the franchise where Star Trek: Lower Deck – with Rick and Morty’s Mike McMahon – was not an animated comedy series.
Given a release date of August 2020, the series follows deck crew members on the bottom of the Ceritos, one of Starfleet’s most important ships in 2380.
But when will the show be docking on our screens? What will be the plot? Here’s what you need to know.

What is the plot of Star Trek: Lower Decks?
Not much is known about the show itself, but Kurtzmann gives fans a glimpse of the melody they can expect.
In a press statement, he described McMahon’s initial indication for the event: “(He) won our hearts with his first sentence: ‘I want to do a show with people wearing yellow cartridges among food counterparts so that a banana can come out. The other end ‘
McMahon himself has said that Lower Dex will not hire the classic Star Trek troupe: “I promise not to add an episode at the very end that reveals that the whole incident happened in a training program.”
