The "Crisis Point" sequel that Star Trek: Lower Decks fans have been waiting for is finally here in this week's episode, "Crisis Point 2: Paradoxus." Paramount+ has provided ComicBook.com with an exclusive clip from Star Trek: Lower Decks' second sendup of Star Trek's cinematic entries. The clip picks up where the previous sneak peek left off. Ensign Brad Boimler (Jack Quaid), playing the role of Capt. Dagger, commands his ship, the USS Wayfarer, to come to the rescue of the USS Cerritos. The Romulan triplets they faced off against retreat, but "Dagger" decides to "let 'em run" while he ensures the Cerritos crew is safe. You can watch the clip from "Crisis Point 2: Paradoxus," debuting Thursday on Paramount+, above.
"Crisis Point 2: Paradoxus" is continuing a string of standout Star Trek: Lower Decks episodes that began with its visit to Deep Space 9 followed by Peanut Hamper's mathematically perfect return. In "Crisis Point 2: Paradoxus," according to the official synopsis, "Boimler's holodeck movie sequel tries to live up to the original." Ben Rodgers wrote the episode and Michael Mullen directed.
Created by Emmy Award winner Mike McMahan (Rick and Morty, Solar Opposites), season three of Star Trek: Lower Decks challenges the U.S.S. Cerritos ensigns in (hilarious) ways they could never imagine. The season began with the shocking resolution to Season 2's cliffhanger finale.
