Star Trek: Lower Decks is an American adult animated television series created by Mike McMahan for the streaming service CBS All Access.
It is the ninth series in the Star Trek franchise, and was launched in 2020 as part of executive producer Alex Kurtzman’s expansion of the franchise.
Lower Decks is the first animated series created for All Access, and the first animated Star Trek series since the 1973-1974 series Star Trek: The Animated Series.
When a rare Mugato is detected on a planet that it should not be on, the Cerritos is sent to investigate. Mariner, Boimler, and Rutherford join Shaxs and the away team, but not before Boimler and Rutherford learn from the Cerritos bartender that Mariner may be a Section 31 spy. The team discovers many Mugatos that are being kept captive by Ferengi, who are harvesting and selling the animals’ horns. The away team attacks and the Mugatos are released, but Boimler and Rutherford get lost in the chaos. The Ferengi’s buyer attempts to escape and is captured by the Cerritos, which accidentally destroys his ship. Freeman compensates him with a shuttle and some valuable items, before learning that this was a scam. Boimler and Rutherford find Mariner and she convinces them that she is not a spy. Together they convince the Ferengi to change their operation into a Mugato sanctuary and profit off visitors. On the Cerritos, Tendi is tasked with tracking down and scanning crew members who have been avoiding their regular medical checkups.
