#SDCC2019 Meet the cast of Star Trek animated series Lower Decks

July 20th, 2019 by Marc Comments

More Star Trek news from SDCC 2019 as we have our first look at the upcoming CBS All Access Star Trek animated comedy series Star Trek: Lower Decks.

The first season is ten episodes and will arrive early next year.

Lower Decks co-creator and executive producer Mike McMahan joined executive producers Alex Kurtzman and Heather Kadin to introduce the crew of the USS Cerritos: 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.

The ship’s bridge crew include Captain Carol Freeman voiced by Dawnn Lewis, Commander Jack Ransom voiced by Jerry O’Connell, Lieutenant Shaxs voiced by Fred Tatasciore, and Doctor T’Ana voiced by Gillian Vigman.

We also have a look at the show’s Holodeck (bottom).

Not sure what to make of this series at the minute, but I do love a fresh approach to something, so I’ll not be writing it off until I see it.


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
