The finale part of the Star Trek Universe Comic-Con was for Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, and it brought a surprise crossover announcement.
Strange Lower Decks Worlds
Paramount+ today announced two of the current Star Trek series will collide in “a major crossover event” planned for the second season of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds featuring stars from the animated comedy Lower Decks. This must be the big crossover that executive producer Alex Kurtzman has been teasing.
Strange New Worlds star Anson Mount revealed the news when Lower Decks stars Tawny Newsome and Jack Quaid crashed his portion of the Star Trek Universe panel today at San Diego Comic-Con.

According to Paramount+, the special crossover episode will feature “both live-action and animation.” Fans “can expect to see Ensign Beckett Mariner, voiced by Tawny Newsome, and Ensign Brad Boimler, voiced by Jack Quaid, from Lower Decks joining the U.S.S. Enterprise in season two of Strange New Worlds. As a special Star Trek bonus, the episode is directed by TNG legend Jonathan Frakes.
Unfortunately, Paramount+ was not ready to share any images or video from the crossover from season two of Strange New Worlds.
There is no word on when this episode and the second season of Strange New Worlds will arrive besides some time next year. Season one of Strange New Worlds is currently available to stream exclusively on Paramount+ in the U.S., U.K., Latin America, Australia, South Korea, and the Nordics and airs on Bell Media’s CTV Sci-Fi Channel and streams on Crave in Canada. It will also stream exclusively on Paramount+ in Italy, France, Germany, Switzerland and Austria later this year. The series is distributed by Paramount Global Content Distribution.
