Some good news for Canadian Star Trek fans as another show lands on CTV Sci-Fi.
Lower Decks headed to Canada
The upcoming animated comedy Star Trek: Lower Decks has found a home in Canada. Today it was announced that the show will air on the CTV Sci-Fi Channel (formerly Space) and will also stream on Crave. The announcement came today from Mike Cosentino, Bell Media’s president of content and programming, during his CTV Homefront presentation.

Lower Decks being on CTV Sci-Fi and Crave is not a surprise, as they are the Canadian homes of the other two new Star Trek shows. From their announcement:
First came Star Trek: Discovery. Then came Star Trek: Picard. Now, we’re getting a Star Trek series unlike anything we’ve seen before.
Earlier today, we announced that Star Trek: Lower Decks, the latest addition to the Trek canon, will be coming to CTV Sci-Fi Channel later this year. Unlike Discovery and Picard, Lower Decks—set shortly after the events of Star Trek: Nemesis—is a half-hour comedy that focuses on the more lighthearted aspects of being a Starfleet crew member. Oh, and it’s also animated.
Of course, Lower Decks will stream exclusively in the USA on CBS All Access, but there’s no word yet on where it will be available outside the USA and Canada. Currently, Discovery is available internationally on Netflix, with Picard on Amazon Prime Video.
This is the second significant update for Lower Decks in the last week. Just five days ago CBS released the first new images from the show since Comic-Con 2019. Hopefully, more info and the first trailer are not far off, maybe even during Comic-Con@Home in July.
