Today at San Diego Comic-Con, Paramount+ released the trailer for the third season of the animated comedy series Star Trek: Lower Decks. Series creator Mike McMahan introduced the trailer during the Star Trek Universe panel in Hall H at the event. Paramount+ also released new character portraits featuring main characters Mariner, Boimler, Tendi, and Rutherford. You can find both the trailer and the character portraits below. Star Trek: Lower Decks Season 3 will challenge the U.S.S. Cerritos ensigns in new ways as they seek a resolution to last season's cliffhanger ending, which ended with Captain Freeman being framed and arrested for destroying Pakled Planet.
The Star Trek: Lower Decks Season 3 trailer features plenty of the Star Trek Easter eggs for which the animated series is known. Chief among them is the appearance of Deep Space 9 towards the trailer's end. There's also a nod to the opening of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, with the Cerritos doing laps around the space station while the show's opening theme plays. Previous teasers have included nods to the Star Trek: The Next Generation series finale "All Good Things…" and the motion picture Star Trek III: The Search for Spock.
Star Trek: Lower Decks' cast includes lower deckers 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 Cerritos bridge crew includes Captain Carol Freeman, voiced by Dawnn Lewis; Commander Jack Ransom, voiced by Jerry O'Connell; and Doctor T'Ana, voiced by Gillian Vigman.
