  • "Star Trek: Lower Decks" on Paramount+

    Just finished watching the first season of Star Trek: Lower Decks that I purchased via iTunes. While this series was initially aired on CBS All Access (which is now called Paramount+) back in the Fall of 2020, it became available on iTunes in the middle of May 2021.

    This series is animated and is centered around 4 Ensigns on board the starship USS Cerritos as the ship does support kind of things like making Second Contact to alien worlds, which includes things like making sure they get the spelling right on the planet in question.

    Oh yeah, this series is also a comedy but it keeps in touch with Star Trek lore like the Gorn (a wedding is shown in episode #8), Q, and nods to both the The Original Series (TOS) and The Next Generation, as well minor nods to the The Animated Series, Deep Space Nine and Voyager.

    There are 10 half hour episodes for the first season.

    I should mention that episode #9 titled Crisis Point pays homages or parodies the various Star Trek movies like:
    • The Motion Picture (#1)
    • The Wrath of Kahn (#2)
    • The Search for Spock (#3)
    • The Final Frontier (#5)
    • The Undiscovered Country (#6)
    • Generations (#7)
    • First Contact (#8)
    • Star Trek (#11)

    Most of this episode's plot centers around The Wrath of Kahn and The Search for Spock.
