Check Out First Images From First Two Episodes Of ‘Star Trek: Lower Decks’ Season 3

Paramount+ followed up the release of the official trailer for season three of Star Trek: Lower Decks with the first official preview images. We have two images each from the first two episodes, and episode titles as well.

Episode 301: “Grounded”

The first episode is called “Grounded,” likely referring to how the crew of the USS Cerritos are grounded after Captain Freeman was arrested for the destruction of Pakled Planet at the end of season two. And the first image from the episode shows Freeman still in custody being escorted by some Starfleet Security officers.

The second image shows the four ensigns in their civilian clothes back on Earth, or as Tawny Newsome described them at the SDCC panel, “the Earth outfits are bangin’.”

Episode 302: “The Least Dangerous Game”

The second episode is called “The Least Dangerous Game,” which is a twist on the idea of hunting humans. Both images appear to show the crew back on the USS Cerritos, indicating the “Grounded” issue may get wrapped up in the first episode. The first image shows the crew wearing some Klingon armor. This is from a scene shown at Star Trek: Mission Chicago where they are playing a Klingon version of D&D called “Bat’leths & BIHnuchs.” The game features a virtual Martok (voiced by J.G. Hertzler).

The second image shows Boimler on a ship (presumably the Cerritos) running from a new alien named K’Ranch, voiced by Nolan North. Mike McMahan revealed to EW that K’Ranch is inspired by Tosk from Deep Space Nine.

Nolan North plays K’ranch and Jack Quaid as Ensign Brad Boimler

I know it’s the wrong character (and actor), but I really hope Martok tells everyone playing “Bat’leths & BIHnuchs” to experience b’jh!

Funny. This Klingon version of D&D called “Bat’leths & BIHnuchs.” Episode. Was it not Frake’s as Direction for an Star Trek Video Game called “Star Trek:Klingons”? The circle come to an end

Calling it, we are definitely getting an Allamaraine call-back in “The Least Dangerous Game”.

I had that VHS game with Robert O’Reilly not quite playing Gowron. Very goofy game.

I still have it! Experience Bij!

3rd Season is going to be Lower Deck’s tribute to Star Trek III The Search For Spock.

Be great to use an extended format of Short Treks because I like many want to see the founding of the Federatio, Archers role; xactly what happened to Sisko and Federation post Dominion War and the any exploits of Enterprise 1701, the any planets they visited and co sequences of Kirk’s visits. Please no more TNG, Star Fleet, Federation and Trek itself is such ore Tham this washed up boring show. Archer and the NX made valuable contributions to founding of Federation give them there do. We don’t need Frakes or any of those clowns you guys force feed on the Trek Universe. , let every Captain’s story be told and their contributions shared and explained in their own words and own way. The actor that played Archer is not my favorite but Archer is more relevant to the story of Trek and the Federation than Picard can ever be. It’s like giving 45 more relevance then George Wsshington or Abraham Lincoln
