Ensign D'Vana Tendi enthusiastically begins her new assignment aboard the USS Cerritos, a California-class starship specializing in second contact missions, doing the follow-up grunt work of the crews boldly going where no one has gone before. She quickly befriends Ensigns Brad Boimler, Beckett Mariner and Sam Rutherford, collectively nicknamed the "lower decks," as Mariner points out, that is where the real action happens.
The Cerritos, under the command of Captain Carol Freeman, proceeds to aid the Galardonians in the construction of a communications array (while dealing with the effects of a rage virus,) delivers Klingon General K'orin to Tulgana IV and diplomatic trinkets to Gelrak V. Other missions include aiding with the relocation of an ancient generation ship, assisting with the demolition of one of Mixtus III's moons, fending off Drookmani scavengers, and providing support to the Khwopa. All the while, Captain Freeman is keeping an especially close and untrusting eye on Ensign Mariner – as the two have kept secret that they are mother and daughter.
As Boimler aspires to be more promotable, Mariner works to teach Boimler the importance of doing what is right (even when it means breaking the rules,) and the budding of Tendi and Rutherford's friendship, the secret of Mariner and Freeman's relationship comes out. The Cerritos is nearly destroyed before it is saved by the lower decks' quick thinking, the sacrifice of chief of security Shaxs, and a last minute assist by Captain William T. Riker of the USS Titan.
Сериал посвящен четырём молодым энсинам, служащим на USS «Серритос» — вспомогательном корабле Звёздного Флота класса «Калифорния». В отличие от «Энтерпрайза», «Серритос» занимается вопросами «второго контакта», обеспечивая налаживание и поддержание взаимоотношений с недавно обнаруженными цивилизациями.
Star Trek: Lower Decks is the ninth main series set in the Star Trek universe, the tenth including the companion series Star Trek: Short Treks, and the twelfth Star Trek series overall. It is the second series to be entirely animated, after Star Trek: The Animated Series, with episodes running half an hour, and the third series to have animated episodes, after Short Treks. Lower Decks is the first original animated series commissioned by CBS All Access, as well as the first produced by the new CBS animation arm, CBS Eye Animation Productions, and was announced in October 2018, with All Access committing to a two-season order. 
Created by Mike McMahan, the series is an adult animation comedy produced in association with Titmouse, Inc. and forms part of Alex Kurtzman's five-year deal with CBS to expand the Star Trek franchise. Lower Decks focuses on "the support crew serving on one of Starfleet's least important ships." 
The show takes place aboard the California-class USS Cerritos on the "lower decks".  The show's time period is described as the Star Trek: The Next Generation-era, more specifically 2380, after Star Trek Nemesis.  
A full-length trailer was released on 12 July 2020. 
The first season was nominated for the NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Animated Series. 
In April 2021 it was announced that Lower Decks had been renewed for a third season. 
McMahan has acknowledged that some fans have referred to the four leading characters as "the warp core four," though the production team's shorthand for them is "The Lower Deckers." 
↑ John Van Citters has chosen "LDS" as the series' official abbreviation, while also alluding to it being a reference to Kirk's line about LSD in Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home.  This is consistent with the three letter abbreviations for other series, though no "official" abbreviations have been given for Star Trek: Short Treks, After Trek, or The Ready Room. MA will use the abbreviation "LD" for Lower Decks to remain consistent with using the first letter in titles with more than one word after Star Trek.
