Paramount+ today released an exclusive sneak peek of a scene from an upcoming episode of the hit original animated comedy series Star Trek: Lower Decks. The scene was revealed on-stage during today’s global live-streamed Star Trek Day celebration.
The sneak peek is of episode Crisis Point 2: Paradoxus, in which Boimler’s holodeck movie sequel tries to live up to the original, as seen in season one, which will be available to stream on Thursday, 13 October, exclusively on Paramount+ in the U.S.
The Star Trek: Lower Decks conversation at Star Trek Day celebration featured voice cast members Tawny Newsome, who also co-hosted the event, Noël Wells, and Paul F. Tompkins, who served as the moderator. Voice cast member Fred Tatasciore served as this year’s Star Trek Day announcer at the in-person event.
Created by Emmy Award winner Mike McMahan (Rick and Morty, Solar Opposites), season three of STAR TREK: LOWER DECKS challenges the U.S.S. Cerritos ensigns in (hilarious) ways they could never imagine, starting with a shocking resolution for season two’s epic cliffhanger finale.

Cerritos includes Ensign Beckett Mariner, voiced by Tawny Newsome; Ensign Brad Boimler, voiced by Jack Quaid; Ensign Tendi, voiced by Noel Wells; and Ensign Rutherford, voiced by Eugene Cordero.
