‘Star Trek: Lower Decks’: Season 2 Gets August UK Premiere On Amazon Prime Video & Trailer
Get ready to return to the U.S.S. Cerritos, as Amazon Prime Video announces Season 2 of ‘Star Trek: Lower Decks‘ will premiere in the UK this August, the day after the US premiere on Paramount+.
Developed by Emmy Award-winner Mike McMahan (‘Rick and Morty’, ‘Solar Opposites’), ‘Star Trek: Lower Decks’ focuses on the support crew serving on one of Starfleet’s least important ships, the U.S.S. 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 U.S.S. Cerritos, 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. The Starfleet characters that comprise the ship’s bridge crew include Captain Carol Freeman, voiced by Dawnn Lewis, Commander Jack Ransom, voiced by Jerry O’Connell and Doctor T’Ana, voiced by Gillian Vigman.

Not only is Jonathan Frakes reprising his role as Captain Will Riker, but we also get a guest appearance by Robert Duncan McNeill as Tom Paris… sort of…
