Star Trek: Lower Decks beams down to Prime Video, is Strange New Worlds next?

Amazon Prime Video has assimilated another Star Trek show, becoming the new home for animated spin-off Lower Decks. The show will beam down to the UK, along with Australia, New Zealand, Europe, Japan and India, on January 22 2021.  

Developed by Emmy Award-winner Mike McMahan (responsible for Rick and Morty), Star Trek: Lower Decks focuses on the support crew serving on one of Starfleet’s least important ships, the USS Cerritos, in 2380. 

Ensigns Mariner, Boimler, Rutherford and Tendi have to keep up with their duties and their social lives, often while the ship is being rocked by a multitude of sci-fi anomalies. The Starfleet crew residing in the lower decks of the starship, includes Ensign Beckett Mariner, voiced by Tawny Newsome, Ensign Brad Boimler, voiced by Jack Quaid, Ensign Tendi, voiced by Noël Wells and Ensign Rutherford, voiced by Eugene Cordero. 

Providing the voices for the ship’s bridge crew are Dawnn Lewis, Jerry O’Connell, Fred Tatasciore and Gillian Vigman. 

All ten episodes of season one will be available to binge from the January airdate.

The series includes special cameos by Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Picard actors Jonathan Frakes and Marina Sirtis as well as John de Lancie, as Q from Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Alex Kurtzman and Heather Kadin and Roddenberry Entertainment’s Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth, and Katie Krentz serve as executive producers alongside creator and showrunner McMahan. 

Star Trek: Lower Decks joins Star Trek: Picard on the platform. While no announcement has been made, this acquisition makes it increasingly likely that Star Trek Discovery spin-off Star Trek: Strange New Worlds will also find a home on Amazon’s streaming starbase.
