The second season of Star Trek: Lower Decks arrives in just two weeks and to remind you Paramount+ released a brand new preview.
The promo released today on social media has a bit of a theme, keyed up by Captain Freeman’s admiral boss (and husband) asking if the ship has seen any accidents.

ICYMI: Lower Decks
It’s been a big week for the animated series. A new trailer (which you can see below) was released during Comic-Con@Home last Friday, which we have totally over-analyzed. Paramount+ also released 10 images from the first two episodes as well. Star Trek: Voyager’s Robert Duncan McNeill was confirmed to appear in season two, and he is even getting a commemorative plate, because he appears as a plate (watch the trailer, it will make sense).
And along with the trailer, showrunner Mike McMahan and his main cast held a virtual panel, offering more insights into the upcoming season. And Amazon Prime Video confirmed they will debut the show internationally the day after it premieres on Paramount+ (USA) and CTV Sci-Fi (Canada).
TrekMovie will have more Lower Decks coverage in over the next two weeks including talking to some of the cast, and of course our full detailed review on the site, episode discussion on our All Access Star Trek podcast, and analysis of the season premiere easter eggs.

Is that one of the plants from “This Side of Paradise” exploding in Mariner’s face?
I don’t think so. Those plants didn’t shoot thorns.
I guess it is one of the plants from the episode “The Apple”.
Any news on the international bluray release?
Great, now the Captain is lying to a superior officer?
I am just waiting this season for the introduction of bathroom humor to the show. I have a feeling that it’s only a matter of time.
oh, that hasn’t stopped Kirk or Sisko from leaving things out….
Or like Spock said to Valeris in The Undiscovered Country, concerning the warp drive NOT being out of order but Spock convincing Scotty it “was” if they wanted to rescue Kirk and McCoy:
VALERIS: A lie?
SPOCK: An omission.
“Ah! Mr. Scott. I understand you’re having trouble with the warp drive. How much time do you require for repair?”
“There’s nothin’ wrong with the bloody thing!”
“Mr. Scott. If we return to Spacedock, the assassins will surely find a way to dispose of their incriminating footwear, and we will never see the captain or Dr. McCoy alive again.”
“Could take weeks, sir.”
“Thank you, Mr. Scott.”
Shall we count the number of times “waste extraction” was mentioned in DS9?
Its also her husband….
If it’s funny it would be a major improvement.
I didn’t watch. I’m trying to keep myself spoiler free now for Aug 12.
I’m hoping Prodigy will air directly after LDS, I’m not the target audience for it but I have a good feeling about it.
Weirdly, I’m getting excited about Season 4 of DIS. It’s my least favourite show, it’s got a ton of problems that I won’t go into here, but hoping it will deliver. I’m thinking positive thoughts.
I did watch the promo, but I won’t spoil anything for you. I will say of the first season, though, even though they gave away more than one might expect (or desire) in the promos, they saved all the really big stuff for the show proper. I think the most spoiler-y thing in any of the promos for S1 was the revelation John de Lance would be back as Q, and then it turned out to be just a brief cameo and an unusually small part of the episode; that might not have been the ideal way to reveal Q, but I think revealing in the promo probably served a greater purpose, in that it primed us to expect major cameos teased in advance, and dispensed with the big question of established Trek stars reprising their roles from productions past, and in so doing it diminished expectations some might have had for a big cameo in the finale, and thereby letting the Riker / Troi / Titan appearance be a true surprise, with none of its impact diminished.
I still haven’t seen a more specific date for Prodigy than “later this year”, but at least we have that much, and I do expect it to come the week after the Lower Decks S2 finale. The weird thing is I don’t know exactly when that is; I’ve seen conflicting reports that Lower Decks S2 will have either ten or twelve episodes. That puts its finale on either October 14 or 28, which means Prodigy (assuming it picks up right away the following week, as Discovery S3 did after Lower Decks S1 last year) should begin either October 21 or November 4. Either way, I’m very much looking forward to it, though I’m well outside the core age demographic it’s targeting. I’m sure it’ll appeal to people of all ages.
Mike McMahan said in a recent panel( I think it was from comic con) that LDS seasons will be 10 episodes.
Thanks for sharing!
