Paramount series Star Trek: Lower Decks season 3 premise
Set in the 24th century, Star Trek: Lower Decks follows the staff you don’t normally see on board a lowly ship called the U.S.S Cerritos. The premise flips the usual Star Trek dynamics, with the normal “stars” of such shows, the Captain, etc, becoming supporting characters, and the “lower deckers” becoming the main players in the stories.
Our opinion on the premise
It’s hard not to be taken in by the comedy premise of this series. The format focussing on the funny side of running an intergalactic Federation ship is endearing and clever, and the basic premise allows for the subversion of the usual sci-fi tropes associated with the franchise.
