A new Star Trek animated series is on its way very soon, entitled Star Trek: Lower Decks.

Rather than taking things seriously, this series has set phasers to “comedy”.

There’s decent pedigree behind the scenes, too, with Rick and Morty and Solar Opposites writer Mike McMahan making it so.

Rather than focussing on the bigwigs of the crew, this one takes us deep down into the bowels of the USS Cerritos to follow a group of regular crew grunts – ensigns Mariner, Boimler, Rutherford and Tendi.

Set to air in the US from early August, here’s a bit of a look at it:
