Boldly going where no one has gone before, Star Trek: Lower Decks follows the underdogs of Starfleet and their crazy adventures traversing the universe, helping civilizations and new life, and keeping up appearances without making total fools of themselves along the way. It's Star Trek, but more irreverent than you've ever seen it before. Written by Johnny

User Reviews

Don't be fooled...
6 August 2020 | by drvixSee all my reviews

... By mediocre scores or disgruntled purists pining for a canon that was shattered before the original series even ended it's first run. Star Trek has always been escapist fun with an added layer of social awareness. It never became "woke" - it was "woke" back when we called "woke" people hippies and it never changed (with the notably shameful exception of S01 of TNG). It's enjoyable, Trek flavoured comedy with added in-jokes for nerds. The older (and nerdier) you are, the more of those in-jokes will hit home. As a 50 year old, lifelong Sci-fi fan I really enjoyed the 1st episode and look forward to more.
