A new trailer for Season 4 of Star Trek: Lower Decks takes the crew of the Cerritos to the USS Voyager. The premiere of Season 4 is just around the corner and as Star Trek fans eagerly await the return of our favorite lower deckers, we’ve received a new look at the upcoming episodes promising epic adventures for Starfleet’s most chaotic crew. The new trailer for Lower Decks Season 4 takes fans on a journey back through some of the best moments so far for ensigns Beckett Mariner (Tawny Newsome), Brad Boimler (Jack Quaid), D’Vana Tendi (Noël Wells) and Sam Rutherford (Eugene Cordero). Senior officers Commander Jack Ransom (Jerry O’Connell), Lieutenant Shaxs (Fred Tatasciore), Doctor T’ana (Gillian Vigman), and Captain Carol Freeman (Dawnn Lewis) also get their own spotlights as the trailer hypes audiences up for the adventure of a lifetime.
The most exciting part of the new footage, however, is the return of the USS Voyager. Mariner elatedly exclaims that they get to do something on Voyager — and it is safe to say we’re just as happy about it as she is — following a stunning shot of the ship’s return to animation after being previously seen in the Season 1 finale of Star Trek: Prodigy. The rest of the new footage speed runs through the kind of adventures that only the crew of the Cerritos can deliver, with Boimler running from an active volcano, Tendi and Mariner visiting another Orion planet, and a terrifyingly cute new alien species that fans are going to want plushies of immediately.
Alongside the new trailer, Paramount also released an adorable new poster featuring our favorite ensigns hijacking a shuttlecraft while a planet explodes in the background. The range of emotion of each character runs the full gamut from Mariner’s thrilled determination to Boimler’s pure terror, with Rutherford and Tendi both somewhere in the middle. See the poster below.
It’s the Best Time to Be a ‘Star Trek: Lower Decks Fan’
Fans of Star Trek: Lower Decks have had quite the summer, with the series making its first live-action debut in an epic crossover episode with Strange New Worlds. The seventh episode of Strange New Worlds Season 2, titled “Those Old Scientists,” saw Boimler and Mariner sucked through a portal and sent back in time for a one-of-a-kind adventure with the crew of Captain Pike’s (Anson Mount) USS Enterprise. The episode also gave voice actors Quaid and Newsome the opportunity to play their characters in live-action, while also giving fans a taste of what the SNW characters would look like in the style of Lower Decks. The new season of Lower Decks is said to be a love letter to Star Trek fans that strikes a bold new path in this beloved universe.
