‘Big name Trek: Decrease Decks’ warps into the animated comedy frontier with ‘2d Touch’


“Star Trek” has a new animated series — only the second ever for the franchise — that warped onto television  Aug. 6 to join the acclaimed collection of shows that currently includes “Star Trek: Discovery” and “Star Trek: Picard”

“Star Trek: Lower Decks” is developed by Mike McMahan, creator of Hulu’s “Solar Opposites” and co-creator of “Rick and Morty.” It focuses on the support crew aboard an insignificant Starfleet starship, the California-class USS Cerritos, shortly after the “Next Generation” era, in 2380, after the events of “Star Trek” Nemesis.” The show is the latest in a slate of new Trek offerings from the subscription streaming service CBS All Access that will soon include “Star Trek: Strange New Worlds.” Plus, we’ve still got a Section 31 spin-off in pre-production, starring Michelle Yeoh and another animated series, “Star Trek: Prodigy,” in production for Nickelodeon.
