'Star Trek: Lower Decks' Cast & Character Guide: Meet the Crew of the USS Cerritos

Here's our cast and character guide to the hit Paramount+ show.

It's time to boldly go where no Star Trek show has gone before! Star Trek: Lower Decks made Star Trek history when it debuted on August 6, 2020. It was not only the first animated Star Trek series since the short-lived 1970s show Star Trek: The Animated Series , it was the first ever comedic installment in the expansive Star Trek universe. Star Trek is known for exploring strange new worlds and new civilizations, but exploring comedy was brand new territory for the groundbreaking franchise. Fortunately, Lower Decks was a hit for its streaming service Paramount+, which at the time went by the name CBS All Access. Created by Mike McMahan , a self-proclaimed Trekkie, Lower Decks is a hilarious love letter to all things Star Trek with plentiful Easter eggs that pay loving homage to every iteration of Star Trek , both on the small and big screen.

Star Trek: Lower Decks follows the low-ranking support crew of the U.S.S. Cerritos. The story revolves primarily around Starfleet crew members such as Beckett Mariner, Brad Boimler, D'Vanna Tendi, and Sam Rutherford as they perform menial tasks on the Cerritos. While classic Star Trek ships like the flagship U.S.S. Enterprise went on important missions like defending Earth from the Borg, the Cerritos is one of Starfleet's least important ships. Another departure from the traditional Star Trek structure is that Lower Decks focuses on the "lower deckers" of the Cerritos, while the senior officers such as the Captain are essentially supporting characters. This creates thematic opportunities for Lower Decks to explore new stories and characters often not explored in a conventional Star Trek show, usually to hilarious results.

Star Trek: Lower Decks is streaming episodes on Paramount+ . The first episode of the third season debuts on Thursday, August 25, 2022. Similar to the first two seasons, Season 3 will consist of ten episodes. Before the third season drops, let's take a look at the cast and their corresponding characters who will be warping through the cosmos once more on the USS Cerritos.

Tawny Newsome as Beckett Mariner

Tawny Newsome voices Ensign Beckett Mariner, one of the "Lower Deckers" of the U.S.S. Cerritos. Mariner is brash, impulsive, and always looking for trouble. Mariner's recklessness often brings her into conflict with Ensign Boimler, who is very much the polar opposite. As the show progresses, more of Mariner's backstory is revealed, including her connection to one of the senior officers of the Cerritos. Mariner also experiences quite the character growth as she becomes less impetuous throughout the show. There's a lot hidden underneath Mariner's seemingly distant demeanor, as revelations bring about emotional realizations that bring her even closer to Boimler and her fellow crew members.

Lower Decks isn't Newsome's first foray into space travel. She played Captain Angela Ali on the satirical comedy Space Force , which lasted for two seasons on Netflix and featured Steve Carell and John Malkovich in the lead roles.

Jack Quaid as Brad Boimler

Ensign Brad Boimler couldn't be more different from fellow crew member and friend Beckett Mariner if he tried. Voiced by Jack Quaid , Boimler is the neurotic perfectionist counterpart to Mariner's spontaneous adventurer. While Boimler has lofty ambitions of climbing the ranks of Starfleet, Mariner is perfectly content surveying the lower decks. In the same way that Mariner pushes Boimler outside his comfort zone, Boimler forces Mariner to come to terms with the aspects of her past she'd rather keep hidden. As the series speeds along, Boimler gradually becomes more comfortable in his own skin, more willing to take risks, and not as uptight on upholding Starfleet regulations as he was when the series began.

Jack Quaid is quite popular among the nerd community, known for playing vigilante Hughie Campbell on The Boys . Quaid also voiced Alberto Falcone in the animated film Batman: The Long Halloween and got his big break playing Marvel in The Hunger Games and its sequel Catching Fire .

Noël Wells as D'Vanna Tendi

Noël Wells voices D'Vanna Tendi. Tendi is an Orion ensign that serves in Sick Bay on the Cerritos. For those unaware, an Orion is an emerald green alien made famous when Captain James T. Kirk fraternized with one during a popular episode of Star Trek: The Original Series . Tendi is one of the biggest fans of Starfleet there is, giving some hardcore Trekkies a run for their money. Tendi is also incredibly excited to be serving onboard a Starfleet vessel. Her tenaciousness and excitement bleed over even during the most dangerous of situations, from scary away missions or when the Cerritos is under attack. When the show begins, Tendi is new to the crew of the Cerritos and was created to help introduce audiences to the characters. Tendi goes through quite the transformative journey in Lower Decks , as she comes across lethal enemies and terrifying situations that test her naive excitement to be serving on a Starfleet vessel in the far reaches of outer space.

Noël Wells got her start on Saturday Night Live in 2013, debuting in the show's 39th season.

Eugene Cordero as Sam Rutherford

Sam Rutherford is voiced by Eugene Cordero . Rutherford is a human/cyborg hybrid serving onboard the Cerritos. Rutherford begins the show still trying to figure out what field he is most interested in pursuing, whether that's command, engineering, or medical. Rutherford eventually settles on engineering, realizing he has a knack for problem-solving. McMahan, the show's creator, has compared Rutherford to Geordi La Forge ( LeVar Burton ), who is the chief engineering officer on the U.S.S. Enterprise-D in Star Trek: The Next Generation . The only difference is that Rutherford isn't as adept at problem-solving as La Forge, given he's still young and figuring things out on his own. Cordero has made appearances on numerous fan-favorite shows including Arrested Development , Curb Your Enthusiasm , and The Office .

Dawnn Lewis as Carol Freeman

Dawnn Lewis voices Carol Freeman, the captain of the U.S.S. Cerritos. McMahan has described Freeman as a "very capable captain" whose starship is just not very important. Freeman also has direct ties to Mariner given that Freeman is her mother. Much of the interpersonal conflict between Freeman and Mariner on the show involves Freeman wanting Mariner assigned to another starship. Neither Freeman nor Mariner want the crew of the U.S.S. Cerritos to know of their biological connection, so when the crew does find out, it causes both Freeman and Mariner quite a bit of heartache. As the show progresses, Freeman and Mariner are able to confront their complicated past in an effort to work better together as captain and crew member. Lewis has lent her voice talents to such projects as Inside Out , Toy Story of Terror! , and Monsters University .

Jerry O'Connell as Jack Ransom

Jack Ransom is voiced by Jerry O'Connell . Ransom is the first officer of the U.S.S. Cerritos and Freeman's right-hand man. When comparing Ransom to previous Star Trek first officers, McMahan has compared Ransom to William Riker, the first officer of the U.S.S. Enterprise-D from Star Trek: The Next Generation . McMahan specified that Ransom was similar to Riker but with the addendum "if he was on speed and had less shame." That summarizes Ransom pretty well. The burly, muscular, brazen Starfleet officer who famously works out and shamelessly isn't afraid to mention it every other episode. During Season 2, Ransom was possessed by the same alien energy that took over Gary Mitchell, James T. Kirk's best friend and first enemy on The Original Series . O'Connell has a deep connection with Star Trek , given that he's married to Rebecca Romijn , who plays Number One on Star Trek: Strange New Worlds . His previous credits include Billions , Stand By Me , and a whole lot of DC animated projects .

Fred Tatasciore as Shaxs

Fred Tatasciore voices Shaxs, a Bajoran tactical officer and chief security officer aboard the U.S.S. Cerritos. In the first season finale, Shaxs most notably sacrifices himself saving Rutherford from the Pakleds. It was an emotional death given that Shaxs took Rutherford under his wing during the first season. Shaxs started the show as a gruff and emotionless security chief, but through the course of the first season, and as a result of his tutelage with Rutherford, opened up significantly. Of course, as in tradition with Star Trek deaths, Shaxs was resurrected and returned for Season 2. It was a hilarious commentary on how beloved Trek characters often return from the dead, such as Spock -- who dies in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan , only to return in the next installment. Tatasciore has voiced many notable characters on popular animated shows such as Lard-Nar on Invader Zim , Nikos on Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law , and Qui-Gon Jinn on Star Wars: The Clone Wars .

Gillian Vigman as T'Ana

T'Ana is voiced by Gillian Vigman . T'Ana is the chief medical officer on the U.S.S. Cerritos and a member of the Caitian species. The inclusion of T'Ana was a homage to Star Trek: The Animated Series , which also featured a Caitian by the name of M'Ress. T'Ana is the first Caitian to appear on a Star Trek show since The Animated Series . McMahan has described T'Ana as a "good doctor, but unpleasant cat" and that is undoubtedly the best way to define T'Ana. T'Ana might not be the most affectionate doctor, but she revealed a softer side when she mentored Tendi last season. Tendi briefly served in Sickbay and while she realized being a medical officer comes with a fair amount of challenges, T'Ana made sure she was looked after. T'Ana is emblematic of Lower Decks in general -- often hilarious, sometimes surprising, but always heartfelt.

Who Voices Peanut Hamper On Star Trek: Lower Decks?

Peanut Hamper floating on Tyrus VIIA

It's pretty evident that the "Lower Decks" character with a mathematically perfect name, Peanut Hamper, is much different than the other exocomps, first introduced in "The Next Generation." The rebellious and smart-mouthed hovering liaison officer debuted in "No Small Parts," as a new recruit on the Cerritos. By the end of the Season 1 finale, Peanut Hamper bails on Starfleet when asked to partake in a dangerous mission to save the crew. Since then, she has appeared in several episodes, and the entertaining "Star Trek" persona's amusing antics are thanks to the exceptional efforts of Kether Donohue. Donohue is the actor responsible for voicing Peanut Hamper.

In addition to the actor's work on "Star Trek: Lower Decks," Donohue has a number of credits voicing characters in animated titles such as "Tuca and Bertie," "Pokemon," "American Dad," "Elena of Avalor," "Birdgirl," and "Tokyo Mew Mew." But she has also lent her talents to live-action endeavors, including notable roles as Gabby on "B Positive" and Lindsay Jillian on "You're the Worst." Her work on the big screen also includes a few standout roles, like Alice in "Pitch Perfect" and Donna in the found footage feature "The Bay."

While Donohue undoubtedly has extensive experience playing many unique and interesting characters, the thought of voicing a floating robot called Peanut Hamper was almost too much for the actor to handle.

Playing Peanut Hamper initially made Kether Donahue nervous

Joining any major franchise can be a nerve-racking experience, especially when the property has been a powerhouse with fans for many decades, as is the case with "Star Trek." While it probably can feel intimidating to take on the role of an extraterrestrial persona like a Vulcan or Klingon, having to play a faceless, armless, floating robot named Peanut Hamper could easily come off as a risky challenge for any seasoned actor. This was the case when Kether Donohue was considering taking on the "Lower Decks" role. 

"I'm not going to lie, I felt really intimidated when I came on to play Peanut Hamper because I know Star Trek has a very loyal fan base of people that watch the show," the actor said in an interview with StarTrek.com "I take that seriously and I'm honored and grateful that I was accepted into the Star Trek universe. I'm grateful and happy that people dig Peanut Hamper. It makes me happy."

Despite Peanut Hamper's checkered past and questionable actions, Donohue's assessment that fans have embraced the character positively is accurate. For example, on Reddit, u/O/WSpaceClown posted, "I thought Peanut Hamper was so adorable. Then she turned out to be a self-absorbed a**hole. Still kind of love her though." u/WoundedSacrifice added to the comment saying, "I love to hate her." 

There is no denying the character is the most popular exocomp since "Star Trek: The Next Generation," and it will be exciting for fans to see what the future holds for Peanut Hamper in "Lower Decks."

‘Star Trek: Lower Decks’ Season 5 Voice Work Resumes; Tawny Newsome Tells Us About Recording Return

voices of star trek lower decks

| November 18, 2023 | By: Laurie Ulster 63 comments so far

The SAG-AFTRA strike is over, so another Star Trek show is getting back to production—in this case, the adult animated comedy  Star Trek: Lower Decks . TrekMovie spoke to Tawny Newsome about starting up again, and her co-star Jack Quaid has shared an image on social now that he’s back in the recording booth.

Season 5 recording for Lower Decks

In mid-July, the SAG-AFTRA actors union went on a strike that lasted until November 9th. Voice work for the fifth season of Star Trek: Lower Decks had just started, but was put on hold when the strike began, but now it’s been resumed.

In an interview with TrekMovie’s All Access Star Trek podcast, Tawny Newsome confirmed that they’re back in action:

“We were recording a tiny bit before the strike and then we just got started again. We’re like somewhere in the middle. I’ve done like four or five episodes so far… yeah, I love it. I’m so happy to be back doing these roles.”

Newsome also confirmed that even though she hasn’t recorded with co-star Jack Quaid (Boimler), both have overlapped at the recording studio:

“No we didn’t [record together]. Actually for our first session back, our producer Brad Winters didn’t tell us, but he scheduled me and Jack not only back-to-back but he scheduled us to overlap. So I showed up to record at 1:00 and really I wasn’t recording till 2:00 and Jack was in there finishing and we were like, “My friend! Ah!” I mean we see each other all the time but to see each other at work, it was such a joy. Don’t tell the studio, but I think we did  waste about 90 minutes in there just like catching up and gossiping and eating salads. But maybe they scheduled in some intentional buffer time.”

Newsome’s comment evokes lower deckers’ “ buffer time” from the first season episode “Temporal Edict.”

Star Trek getting back to work

Writing for the fifth season of Lower Decks wrapped up in October; showrunner Mike McMahan told the crowd at NYCC : “I’m writing the finale of season 5 right now. And next year is going to be awesome.”

Each of the first four seasons of Lower Decks was released in late summer about a year apart. In her TrekMovie interview, Newsome wasn’t 100% certain, but thought the show could probably still stick to its schedule:

“I think our production timeline is okay. I don’t know. I don’t know how that got affected but we’re back.”

Earlier in the week, we reported that the third season of Strange New Worlds is back in pre-production . The Star Trek: Section 31 movie is reportedly starting prep as well. After the WGA strike ended in October, the writers room for the new Star Trek: Starfleet Academy show got back to work, and the show is expected to go into production in 2024. Post-production on the animated Star Trek: Prodigy series was not impacted by the strikes, so all 20 episodes are expected to be completed by January and be released sometime in 2024 on Netflix. Work on the fifth and final season of Star Trek: Discovery is complete and arrives on Paramount+ in early 2024, but a specific release date hasn’t been announced.

Watch: Sonequa Martin-Green And Tawny Newsome Talk Representation And Star Trek Celebrating Black Women

Busy woman, she’s also in the ST:A writers room. It’s good to let the kids run with the franchise, lets see what they do with it

with newsome being an uber-fan, I’d trust the direction of the franchise in her hands more than anyone else.

With canon deep dives she’s mentioned I 100% agree.

Tawney Newsome is the sole reason I have any interest in this show. Having a true Trekkie in that room gives me hope we’re at least getting a show that will fit within canon and follow the true spirit of Star Trek.

If it doesn’t I’ll put all the blame on Kurtzman of course. 😉👎

We’ve seen what happens more often when not when people flat out say they love Star Wars but go with Trek because that’s what they can get at the time.

They need to hire good writers, not good fans.

That’s my issue with her too. I do enjoy her work on LDS, however, I don’t think she should be writing Star Trek. Then again, they are turning Trek into a zany comedy, a parody of itself, and she’s qualified to do just that.

I’m curious. What makes her unqualified to be in the writers room? Is she not a big enough fan? Of course we all know True Trek should be super dark and gritty with absolutely no room for levity or humour.

If you read our posts, you’d see our point is that the first priority is to be a good WRITER. not a good fan.

How do you know that she is not a good writer? She has written before.

You are ALL WRONG here .

Truth is, we don’t have enough information yet to conclude that she is a good, bad or average writer yet. We just don’t know yet.

They need to be both, unless you think they should hire writers who have no grasp of what Star Trek is? We don’t need another Discovery.

Tony Gilroy wasn’t the biggest Star Wars fan and look how Andor turned out. You don’t need to fill a show with easter eggs and references to make it good. Just hire good writers, and then have showrunners and producers who know what Star Trek is. Otherwise all you get is bad fan fiction, like Picard S3.

Terry Matalas knows what Star Trek is. Besides, that’s always been a ridiculous thing to try to gatekeep, even when applying it to Discovery or JJ Trek at their extremes.

There were plenty of episodes, such as “No Win Scenario,” which leaned into the sort of Trek so many of us know and love. Star Trek is versatile and malleable. It can be a comedy, it can be TV-MA, it can be like Star Wars (but less fantastical), it can be a rom-com, it can be animated, it can be for multiple generations, and it can evolve. There’s no rule it can’t have a nostalgia factor, certainly, 57 years into its existence. Mileage may vary about how much is too much, and your position on that is very clear. But to be so reductive of the writers’ work on Picard and LDS because of that is just crass.

nicholas meyer also a non ‘trek’ fan and made the best of the OS movies

It doesn’t have to be about Easter eggs like PIC S3 but it should be about sticking to the heart of the franchise. I’m not saying a non-fan can’t do it but what I am saying is we already have BAD examples of what happens when certain ones try and you have a better chance if someone is a fan vs if they are not.

Nicholas Meyer had almost no knowledge of the franchise and was a relative novice at writing. And TUC hasn’t aged well.

What hasn’t aged well about TUC’s writing? And TWOK and TVH’s?

I’m…actually curious what hasn’t aged well about VI too.

Nicholas Meyer … was a relative novice at writing.

WTF? Dude had written and published two novels, once of which was a best seller, and then wrote an adapted screenplay from one of his novels that got an Oscar nomination.

And TUC hasn’t aged well.

100% agree with you there. The Cold War thing with the Nixon quote, and then the Klingon constantly quoting Shakespeare, and the lame Soviet-like prison planet — it really looks dated now.

Because there are no longer prisons in Siberia? You could make a movie today with an allegory about the the end of the Cold War, and no one would bat an eye. The idea of two huge superpowers on the brink of war with a catalyst forcing them to find a solution for peace is evergreen and relevant today. The only real weight to the argument that TUC is too of its time would be Praxis/Chernobyl being so on the nose.

But quoting Shakespeare of all people does not make something dated. If Chang had quoted MC Hammer, that would be dated.

To each his own, it makes it feel dated to me, Phil and other fans obviously. I’ve see this topic brought up numerous times about TUC not aging well. And Chang quoting Shakespeare seems charming to me back then, but now I laugh and I’ve had others with me laugh when they see it. And the “Only Nixon can go to China” line would be so obscure in the 23rd Century — that’s just a bit embarrassing now to watch.

Setting aside a few isolated people’s validation as that’s not relevant.

Still not sure how referencing the most influential writer in the English language or a famously important historical event rises to the level of laughable or “embarrassing.”

Chang studies his enemies and found inspiration and insight in the works of Shakespeare. Adds an interesting quirk to me, and it was good enough that they did it again with Garak in “The Die is Cast.” As for Nixon going to China, one could argue that’s now an even more relevant historical turning point as China is now a superpower vying for dominance with the US, and Nixon hasn’t much faded as a famously twisted political figure. Makes sense to me Spock and Kirk would remember this, and I’m a little skeptical that a modern audience today would find that to be a dated reference.

Do we not still quote Lincoln? So why would Nixon’s quote be obsolete? It also was the first step in establishing formal relations with China, so certainly worth remembering.

That’s quite a stretch. The Nixon quote is fading, Lincolns quotes, no.

We still talk about so many historical figures from just as long ago today. Some may have only faded into a couple anecdotes like Hannibal crossing the alps with elephants. But it’s not at all implausible to think people 200 years from now, students of history, would know this reference – relations opening up between what would become the dominant superpowers of the 21st century, all started by the first US president to resign in disgrace.

TUC hasn’t aged well? In what way? I mean if you are saying the set designs or something ok that’s one thing. But TUC remains one of the best sci-fi if not the best sci-fi examples of the end of the Cold War between the US and USSR there has ever been. Maybe even one of the best outside of the barriers of sci-fi. It’s a true classic.

It’s still my second favorite movie to this day. Don’t mind Phil, he’s hopped up on candied yams a day early and lost his mind!

Who says she isn’t a good writer?

Emily, apparently.

One can be both.

One doesn’t necessarily negate the other, Besides, she’s not the only writer in the room so IMHO even if she was just a fan I would rather have her in there than not.

Agreed. Ron Moore and everyone were “kids” when they did the TNG era

Jack Quaid is one busy dude.

I’m a fan! Loved his parents growing up too

I was annoyed Meg Ryan’s new romcom came and went in a flash while I was out of the country. Really wanted to support her – it ain’t easy to do what she did so well in her heyday!

I really hope they don’t cut it at 7 Seasons.

I hope that they MAKE IT To 7 seasons

Yeah, I’m hoping we get 7 seasons….

(whispers) and a movie!

Oh I hope so but in ther days of streaming I am not sure that is viable. 7 seasons seems like it is relegated to the TNG era.

Very true. I think if it gets another season then it has a shot at least but I am prepared for season 5 to be its last (sad face).

But the fact they haven’t announced fifth season will be its last yet like they did with DIS gives me hope its possible to go more seasons.

I’m very worried that it’ll be 5 seasons and done. Hope I’m wrong.

LOWER DECKS SEASON 5 BABY!!!! SEASON 5!!!

AAAWWWW YEAH! CERIRITOS STRONG!

WARP ME!!!!

I think with PRO going to Netflix that ironically gives LD a better chance!

I always forget the cast usually doesn’t record together. It’s edited and directed so well one could easily never know!

I know right?? It’s kind of crazy how well edited/acted animated shows or movies can be. It really does sound like they are all in the same room together and reacting to each other. Amazing group of actors (and technology ;)).

I’m not an actor but even I know so much of acting is playing off of your acting partner’s performance and mannerisms. It really gives credit to not just the actors but the animators to be able to give the actors something to feed off of more than just the written page.

That’s on the directors most likely being their scene partners.

Oh, interesting!

I’m so confused? When I commented a few months ago about the lower decks people appearing at conventions during the strike, I was roundly lambasted here and told that none of the animation work and voiceover work on lower decks was subject to work stoppage and paid appearance limitations from the WGA and SAG strikes, because it’s a different union and different contract???

You’re always confused dude.

See “Who Cares” response, Mensa.

This was true, they show’s cast are members of 2 guilds (3 for Tawny) and while SAG & the writers guild were striking (both of which Tawny is a member of) their other guild could continue to work. However the show suspended production in solidarity and so that the cast could join the picket lines.

Appearances at conventions for Lower Decks were thus not under SAG control.

Ah, Thanks for the explanation!

IMO it’s a gray area. Yes technically they ARE different. But lots of voice people, like Kate Mulgrew obv, are both so they may choose to say they will not work in animation even if they technically could. I may be wrong on this but I think its a personal choice in those cases. Even with the SAG strike there were certain exceptions made for live live action projects that could still move forward.

Yes!!! So great to hear. Our Lower Deckers should be back in 2024th century after all! ;D

I think season 5 will be as good if not better than season 4! Star Trek is in good hands with this team. :)

I know it probably won’t happen, but *if* ST Legacy does become a thing, I would love to see Mariner as a lt cmdr as part of the crew. I mean she has been live action already, right?

So would I! McMahan has said he knows where each of them would be by Picard’s era so you never know? And once the crossover episode became a roaring success, anything is possible now.

Kurtzman… “It is really funny!” So that’s it then, huh? Star Trek is now a friggin’ sitcom. Unbelievable

No, ONE Star Trek series out of ELEVEN is a comedy. Deal with it.

This is either satire or sent from about five years in the past.

Are you under the impression there has never been a “funny” Star Trek episode before? So much of TOS was based in humor. FFS it is a show that was saved by Lucille Ball!

Wow for Jack Quaid. DC and Star Trek. My two favorite franchises!

As controversial as the concept of a second American civil war might be, Alex Garland’s Civil War i s garnering plenty of praise from SXSW audiences.

Ad – content continues below

“Since the first images were revealed from Alex Garland’s Civil War , it just had the vibe of something noteworthy. Whether the movie was good or bad, simply the idea of a film depicting a modern American civil war was simultaneously terrifying and intriguing. Civil War opens in theaters April 12 and had its world premiere at South by Southwest earlier this week, where it kind of blew the roof off the place.”

As much as we might wish for a second season of Masters of the Air , the torch will likely be passed if the WWII miniseries trilogy continues.

“ Masters of the Air EP Gary Goetzman isn’t closing the door on a potential second season of the Apple TV+ epic. But he, Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks likely won’t be the ones to make it. ‘I hope somebody does it, but I don’t know that it’ll be us,’ Goetzman told The Wrap of a follow-up installment or another Air Force series.”

Star trek: lower decks season 5 - cast, story & everything we know.

Star Trek: Lower Decks season 5 is coming, but when will it air, and what will happen to Tendi and the Lower Deckers after THAT cliffhanger?

Quick Links

Star trek: lower decks season 5 is coming, when will star trek: lower decks season 5 be released, is everyone back for star trek: lower decks season 5, what could star trek: lower decks season 5 be about, star trek: lower decks season 5 updates.

Star Trek: Lower Decks will return for season 5, and showrunner Mike McMahan has already teased what viewers can expect. The Lower Decks season 4 finale, "Old Friends, New Planets" ended on a cliffhanger, as Lieutenant D'Vana Tendi (Noël Wells) sacrificed her Starfleet career so that the USS Cerritos' crew could rescue Lt. Beckett Mariner (Tawny Newsome.) While Lt. Sam Rutherford (Eugene Cordero) was sad about Tendi's departure, the rest of the Lower Deckers were confident that the lovable Orion will return to Starfleet in Star Trek: Lower Decks season 5.

The ending of Star Trek: Lower Decks season 4 set up various plot threads that will be picked up when the show returns. Mike McMahan has warned fans about being complacent about Lower Decks ' security on Paramount+, however, which makes it harder to determine the long-term future of the show. The shock cancelation of Star Trek: Prodigy season 2 in 2023 was a stark reminder that a season order for a Star Trek series isn't necessarily a guarantee that a show will make it to air. As Star Trek: Lower Decks continues to go from strength to strength, it's hoped that after Lower Decks season 5, even more seasons will follow.

Star Trek: Lower Decks Season 4 Ending Explained (In Detail)

Lower decks season 5 is in production now.

Star Trek: Lower Decks season 5 was confirmed before a single episode of season 4 aired, demonstrating Paramount+'s confidence in the show. While the poor treatment of Star Trek: Prodigy season 2 gives pause for thought, the two-part Lower Decks finale played like a hugely exciting movie, proving once and for all that it's far more than a Star Trek comedy. The thrilling Lower Decks season 4 finale, and the positive responses from viewers should be enough to guarantee further adventures for the crew of the USS Cerritos .

Star Trek: Lower Decks season 4's finale featured Wil Wheaton, Shannon Fill, and Robert Duncan McNeill voicing their characters, Wesley Crusher, Sito Jaxa, and Nicholas Locarno from Star Trek: The Next Generation .

Lower Decks' traditional drop is late summer/early fall

With Star Trek: Lower Decks season 5 being announced before season 4 started airing, the show's traditional late summer/early fall release date is expected for 2024. As an animated series, Lower Decks' scripting and production weren't affected by 2023's dual WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes and the show's actors like Tawny Newsome and Jack Quaid completed their voice-over work after the strikes were resolved. While the actors will return for ADR and recording additional dialogue, Star Trek: Lower Decks season 5 is on track.

Lower Decks' cast got bigger in season 4

Star Trek: Lower Decks ' entire cast will be back for season 5 . Although D'Vana Tendi left the USS Cerritos to rejoin Star Trek 's Orions , the other Lower Deckers seem confident that she'll find a way back to Starfleet. Star Trek: Lower Decks ' new addition, Lieutenant T'Lyn (Gabrielle Ruiz) has proved to be instantly likable, and will remain aboard the USS Cerritos in Lower Decks season 5. After reconciling her issues with promotion, Lt. Mariner is back aboard the Cerritos, where she aims to be less self-destructive in Lower Decks season 5. Star Trek 's quarters-sharing odd couple, Bradward Boimler (Jack Quaid) and Sam Rutherford will also return alongside the rest of the supporting cast.

Mike McMahan has dropped Lower Decks season 5 hints

A return to Orion to continue Tendi's story is a definite in Star Trek: Lower Decks season 5 , and there may be some potential "love" for Scott Bakula's Star Trek: Enterprise as well. After his brief stint as acting Captain, Boimler will likely be pursuing a career in command. However, his transporter clone William Boimler is still out there somewhere, potentially becoming season 5's big bad. Mike McMahan has also teased a wedding and a trip to a planet he has always wanted the Cerritos to visit. Meanwhile, the reformed hologram Goodgey (Jack McBrayer) could provide some interesting new storylines for Rutherford and the crew of the USS Cerritos in Star Trek: Lower Decks season 5.

Star Trek: Lower Decks is available to stream on Paramount+.

Star Trek: Lower Decks season 5 is coming to Paramount+, and here are the latest updates of what's next for the crew of the USS Cerritos.

  • Tawny Newsome: Mariner Is “Weird, Chaotic, Stressful” In Star Trek Lower Decks Season 5

voices of star trek lower decks

The “Star Trek” universe has been a fertile ground for parodies, and “Star Trek: Lower Decks” has stood out by self-referentially poking fun at the larger Trek canon while celebrating its legacy. Here are the 10 best “Star Trek” parodies of all time featured in “Lower Decks”:

1.Second Contact (S01E01) – The series premiere hilariously introduces us to the concept of second contact, highlighting the less glamorous but equally important jobs within Starfleet.

2.Temporal Edict (S01E03) – This episode gives a nod to the infamous “buffer time” concept, showing how crewmembers overestimate work time to slack off, until it backfires spectacularly.

3.Cupid’s Errant Arrow (S01E05) – Love triangles and alien artifacts come together in a playful satire that references and ribs classic ‘Trek’ romance tropes and the crew’s penchant for getting emotionally entangled.

4.Much Ado About Boimler (S01E07) – A transporter accident gone wrong is a classic ‘Star Trek’ setup, but “Lower Decks” amps up the humor with a series of increasingly bizarre maladies.

5.Veritas (S01E08) – Offering a playful take on unreliable narrators and courtroom drama episodes like “Court Martial” and “The Measure of a Man,” this episode humorously explores miscommunication and misunderstandings on board.

6.No Small Parts (S01E10) – With numerous Easter eggs and callbacks to previous series, this season finale satirizes ‘Trek’s’ habit of grandiose speeches and heroic sacrifices in typical Lower Decks’ lighthearted fashion.

7.We’ll Always Have Tom Paris (S02E03) – Featuring an actual ‘Voyager’ character, this episode parodies the hero worship of classic ‘Trek’ characters with Boimler’s over-the-top adulation for Tom Paris.

8.An Embarrassment Of Dooplers (S02E05) – Playing on the multiplying tribbles from “The Trouble with Tribbles,” this episode takes creature overruns to new comedic heights with the uncontrollably duplicating Dooplers.

9.I, Excretus (S02E08) – This episode sends-up classic holodeck malfunctions mixed with career evaluations putting characters through hilarious paces that illustrate their insecurities and idiosyncrasies.

10.First First Contact (S02E10) – Satirizing both the franchise’s obsession with first contacts and season-ending cliffhangers, this episode combines both elements while putting an amusingly dysfunctional twist on them.

“Lower Decks” continues to deliver these smart and funny homages, delighting fans with its irreverent take on a beloved universe while cleverly honoring what makes ‘Star Trek’ so enduringly popular.

What can we expect from Star Trek: Lower Decks season 5, including its premiere date, cast, and othe ...

The Star Trek: Lower Decks franchise, developed by Mike McMahan, is an American adult animated science fiction comedy television series that is the first animated series in the franchise and also serves as its first comedic series. It follows the lead of Arrow, who ended the development of Star Trek in 1982, and is followed by NBC's Comedic Feature.

McMahan, along with Alex Kurtzman, Heather Kadin, Rod Roddenberry, Trevor Roth, and Katie Krentz, serves as the executive producer for the show. A third season is scheduled for release this year and a fourth is currently under consideration for release in January 2022.

What is the date of the fourth season and what is the plot, the returning actors, and the upcoming premiere date?

The fifth season of Star Trek: Lower Decks features a plotline.

Before Season 3 premiered, Star Trek: Lower Decks was relaunched for a fourth season in 2022, but it is not yet known for what Season 3 might do in Season 4. Despite this, the show will continue where Season 3 left off.

Set in the late 24th century, the show showcases Earth as a member of the United Federation of Planets, which is made up of the military and exploration division, Starfleet, and their fleets travel across the galaxy to establish contact with alien races.

Star Trek: Lower Decks Season 5's premiere date and cast are unknown, but fans can watch it via cable and enjoy the upcoming movie.

The third season of Star Trek: Lower Decks is planned to open in the third quarter of 2022, and the fifth season is set to premiere on September 7, 2023. The next season is expected to be 10 episodes long, as per the previous two seasons. The remaining details are expected to be confirmed soon. The series is followed by Star Trek: Prodigy.

The series differs from previous Star Trek shows in that it centers on the "lower deckers" who take on the main roles in the various missions and adventures, unlike the main characters.

Which websites offer Star Trek: Lower Decks season 5 for online and offline viewing?

Similar to the earlier seasons, Star Trek: Lower Deckcore can be streamed on Amazon Prime Video in its entirety, except for the initial teaser. The Season 5 trailer for Star Trek: Lower Decks is currently unavailable. To view Season 2, please click on the thumbnails below to watch the teaser.

A Complete History of the Ferengi in Star Trek

One of the most controversial Star Trek: The Next Generation creations were the Ferengi, but they became an important alien species in its history.

Quick Links

The ferengi where created as the 'new klingons', the history of the ferengi alliance in star trek, the redemption of the ferengi as a species, the future of the ferengi and star trek.

There are countless interesting alien species in the Star Trek universe, and they have rich histories both in the narrative and off-screen. While some species like Vulcans or Klingons are immediately iconic, others take some time to ingratiate themselves with the fan community. The history of the Ferengi is one such story, since Star Trek fans took some time to warm up to the aliens that were meant to be a critique of capitalism . In fact, the idea that the Federation had moved beyond capitalism was present in the universe since the Star Trek: The Original Series era.

While developing Star Trek: Phase II , Gene Roddenberry and his writers tried to figure out how the universe of the Federation continued to evolve. The first attempted sequel series would've been a mash-up of The Original Series era settings and characters, along with new elements to expand the universe. That series, however, evolved into Star Trek: The Motion Picture and the successive film series. However, for the 20th anniversary of the universe, Paramount tapped Roddenberry to create a new series, this time set well into the future so as not to bump up against the films. It was through this process that the Ferengi were created by Roddenberry to have a huge role in the next chapter of his Star Trek universe .

What Deep Space Nine Moment Made Armin Shimerman Realize He Was in Star Trek?

When assembling the Phase II leftovers into Star Trek: The Next Generation , there were some changes that Roddenberry made. One such change was the idea that Klingons would no longer be the antagonists they were before, especially with the addition of Worf. Thus, he created the Ferengi and tapped producer Herbert J. Wright to further develop the species. Because the 1980s seemed to celebrate the idea of greed, the newest antagonists were meant to be a critique of that kind of capitalism. The Ferengi had a Hollywood twist, too, coming from "the stereotype of agents and lawyers being cutthroat, greedy and wanting only money," Wright told Cinefantastique in 1990.

After the first appearances of the Ferengi, fans hated them , and they were alone. Season 2 head writer Maurice Hurley also didn't enjoy the new antagonists. He called them "a waste of time" and said he was the "lone voice" speaking against them. Thus, when he took over, it was "good-bye Ferengi. They're out of here. Bring on the Borg!" he said in The Fifty-Year Mission: The Next 25 Years by Edward Gross and Mark A. Altman. However, it wasn't over for them. When Deep Space Nine debuted, the show rehabilitated the Ferengi beyond the single-note villains they were in The Next Generation .

Actor Armin Shimerman wanted to fix his mistake , in his view, in how he defined the species through his performance in Star Trek: The Next Generation Season 1, Episode 5 "The Last Outpost." The Ferengi became a massive part of that series. They also appeared in both Star Trek: Voyager and Enterprise , as well as showing up as background aliens in Star Trek: Discovery . Even with a rough beginning, the Ferengi found their place in the franchise and are here to stay.

Star Trek: Lower Decks Paid Off a Deep Space Nine Character Arc

In the Star Trek universe, the Ferengi have a long history with "hew-mans" despite not making official first contact with the Federation until the 24th Century. One time-travel adventure that changed Star Trek canon was the Deep Space Nine Season 4 episode "Little Green Men" when a time-travel anomaly sent Quark, Rom and Nog to Roswell, New Mexico in the 1950s. The Ferengi purchased warp drive technology in the mid-22nd Century but remained a mysterious merchant race. A group of Ferengi boarded and took over the NX-01 Enterprise in Star Trek: Enterprise Season 1's "Acquisition." While some aliens like the Bolians, Menk and Valakians knew of them, Vulcans and humans did not.

In the mid-24th Century, the USS Stargazer under the command of Captain Picard encountered Ferengi, which attacked. He used a "high warp" trick which made the Stargazer seem to be in two places at once, later called the Picard Maneuver. They were eventually identified in "The Last Outpost," considered the official first contact moment. They had successive hostile contacts with the USS Enterprise-D, including personal revenge against Picard himself for that first attack. Many Ferengi still tried to menace the Federation, such as the group that encountered the USS Voyager through an unstable wormhole.

Through their interaction with the Federation on Deep Space 9, the Ferengi became cautious allies of Starfleet . Under Grand Nagus Zek, and his successor Rom, the Ferengi society underwent reforms. Women gained more rights, and the Ferengi even helped oppose the Dominion. Under Zek's successor, Grand Nagus Rom, the Ferengi Alliance joined the Federation in the late 24th Century when Captain Freeman out-negotiated him during Star Trek: Lower Decks Season 4, Episode 6, " Parth Ferengi's Heart Place ."

How Deep Space Nine Elevated the Ferengi From Jokes to Serious Characters

During the run of Deep Space Nine , the Ferengi culture was further defined in ways The Next Generation never did. In fact, as the conflicts in that series between Starfleet and the Maquis, the Cardassians and Dominion unfolded, they became the conscience of the series. Quark often talked about how war was not good for "profit," however he, Rom and, especially, Nog were principled, moral characters. Rom left his brother's employ to become an engineer working for the Bajorans. However, it was his son Nog who had the most impact as a Ferengi on the universe.

Nog was the only other young character on the station, becoming fast friends with Jake Sisko. The latter, however, didn't want to follow in his father's footsteps and join Starfleet. Looking up to Captain Sisko, and with his help, Nog became the first Ferengi to join Starfleet . Later, Nog was injured in a battle against the Dominion, which led to the amputation of his leg. Nog had to overcome that trauma with the help of sentient hologram, Vic Fontaine . By the end of the series, he'd earned a promotion and, as far as canon goes, is still serving the galaxy with distinction.

A Complete Timeline of the Borg in Star Trek

When the USS Discovery time traveled to the 32nd Century and helped rebuild Starfleet and the Federation, the Ferengi were still there . An unnamed captain was seen amongst the ranks of Starfleet officers. Even as founding members like Earth and Ni'Var (the renamed Vulcan) left it behind, the Ferengi stayed loyal to the idealistic galactic union. When the new series Starfleet Academy debuts, it's quite possible that more Ferengi characters will be introduced among the cadets or, perhaps, the academy professors. Perhaps by this time in the future, they'd left behind their capitalist ways, no longer caring about profit or gold-pressed Latinum.

On Star Trek: Lower Decks the Ferengi have appeared in a number of episodes, beyond the one in which the Ferengi Alliance officially joined the Federation . It was revealed that Quark is still on Deep Space 9, though his eponymous bar has become a franchise with locations all across the galaxy. Another Ferengi named Quimp is friends with Mariner and appeared in Lower Decks Season 1's "Envoys" impersonating a cruel, criminal so that her friend Brad Boimler could "save" her. Later, in "Part Ferengi's Heart Place," he helped Mariner get to the root of her malaise about her promotion and future in Starfleet.

Despite almost disappearing from Star Trek entirely in the early TNG seasons , the Ferengi have become as vital a part of the universe as any aliens. While they didn't become the "new Klingons" as was originally envisioned, their impact on galactic history is perhaps more profound because of it. Like most Star Trek antagonists, they've gone from simple villains to becoming full-fledged allies of Starfleet. Whatever is next for the Ferengi in this universe, it's bound to be interesting.

Star Trek: Discovery will debut its fifth and final season on Paramount+ on April 4, 2024.

The Star Trek universe encompasses multiple series, each offering a unique lens through which to experience the wonders and perils of space travel. Join Captain Kirk and his crew on the Original Series' voyages of discovery, encounter the utopian vision of the Federation in The Next Generation, or delve into the darker corners of galactic politics in Deep Space Nine. No matter your preference, there's a Star Trek adventure waiting to ignite your imagination.

I'm Excited For Strange New Worlds' Pike To Become Star Trek's Most Important Captain When Discovery Ends

  • Captain Pike of "Strange New Worlds" is set to become the most important active Captain in the Star Trek franchise.
  • As "Star Trek: Discovery" and "Star Trek: Picard" come to an end, Captain Pike steps into the spotlight on Paramount+.
  • Pike's portrayal embodies classic Star Trek virtues while modernizing for the 21st century, making him a worthy lead.

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds ' Captain Christopher Pike (Anson Mount) will become Star Trek 's most important active Captain when Star Trek: Discovery ends. Pike was reintroduced in Star Trek: Discovery season 2, updating the character from the original version played by Jeffrey Hunter in Star Trek 's original pilot, "The Cage." The revamped Captain Pike, Lt. Spock (Ethan Peck), and Number One (Rebecca Romijn) proved to be so popular that they received their own spinoff, the critically acclaimed Star Trek: Strange New Worlds .

Star Trek on Paramount+, until recently, had 5 new series featuring multiple starship Captains, although the most prominent are Star Trek: Discovery' s Captain Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green), Star Trek: Picard' s Admiral Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart), Star Trek: Lower Decks ' Captain Carol Freeman (Dawnn Lewis), Star Trek: Prodigy 's Dal R'El (Brett Gray) and Admiral Kathryn Janeway (Kate Mulgrew), and Captain Pike. As an enduring icon of Star Trek: The Next Generation , Admiral Picard's stature can't be denied, but his days of being a starship captain are long over , and Star Trek: Picard ended with season 3 in 2023. With Star Trek: Discovery season 5 also marking its final season, Captain Pike of Strange New Worlds is about to take Star Trek 's center stage in a grander way.

Every Upcoming Star Trek Movie & TV Show

When discovery ends, strange new worlds' pike becomes star trek's most important captain, strange new worlds becomes star trek's flagship tv show.

Captain Pike will become Star Trek 's centerpiece Captain when Star Trek: Discovery ends. As the first Star Trek on Paramount+ series, Discovery was the flagship, and Sonequa Martin-Green's Captain Burnham was on par with Pike in terms of her importance to the current Star Trek franchise. With Admiral Picard gone and Burnham bowing out, Captain Pike becomes the top Star Trek on Paramount+ Captain in live-action (if he isn't already). Indeed, Strange New Worlds will formally succeed Discovery as Star Trek on Paramount+'s flagship show.

Captain Pike also commands the USS Enterprise, the most important ship in Star Trek, so it's fitting that Star Trek on Paramount+ is about to revolve around Strange New Worlds.

Unfortunately, the only live-action Captain who could equal or exceed Pike's prominence doesn't have a Star Trek TV series in development at Paramount+. S tar Trek: Picard season 3's ending set up a new show about Captain Seven of Nine (Jeri Ryan) and the USS Enterprise-G, but that potential series is in limbo and may not happen at all. The same can be said for Chris Pine's Captain James T. Kirk since it's been nearly a decade without another J.J. Abrams' Star Trek movie hitting movie theaters. Captain Pike also commands the USS Enterprise, the most important ship in Star Trek , so it's fitting that Star Trek on Paramount+ is about to revolve around Strange New Worlds.

Why Pike Becomes More Important Than Lower Decks & Prodigy's Captains

Pike embodies star trek's tv future.

Star Trek: Lower Decks, which is about to enter season 5 on Paramount+, and Star Trek: Prodigy , which soon premieres season 2 on Netflix, are popular and highly regarded by Star Trek fans. Unfortunately, as animated series, they don't have quite the same cache as live-action Star Trek series regardless of how excellent Lower Decks and Prodigy are. When Star Trek: Discovery ends, Captain Pike will lead the lone Star Trek on Paramount+ live-action series until the debut of Star Trek: Starfleet Academy . And even then, Strange New Worlds about the Starship Enterprise is more high-profile than Starfleet Academy's experimental YA show about young cadets.

Captain Pike has all the worthy qualities to be the primary Star Trek Captain, and his time is nigh.

Much of Captain Pike and Strange New Worlds ' success is due to how he and his show embody the virtues of classic Star Trek while also modernizing it all for the 21st century . Anson Mount portrays Captain Pike as smart, compassionate, and fair, but also decisive and authoritative, and audiences have responded positively to Chris and to Strange New Worlds . Thankfully, Star Trek: Strange New Worlds is guaranteed to return for season 3, and will hopefully have many more seasons of exploring the final frontier. Captain Pike has all the worthy qualities to be the primary Star Trek Captain, and his time is nigh.

[Mariner is giving T'Lyn a pep talk]

Beckett Mariner : What was your captain's name?

Castro : Sokol.

Beckett Mariner : Man! Fuck Captain Sokol! What, you saved their lives, so he kicks you off the ship? Where's the logic in that, huh?

Castro : It does seem like a disproportionate response to a minor character flaw.

Beckett Mariner : There is no character flaw. Can you imagine anything more Vulcan than Bendii Syndrome? Hello? I mean, Spock's dad had it and he was Vulcan as a motherfucker.

Castro : Hmm...

[T'Lyn relaxes]

Castro : I suppose, by the transitive property, I, too, must be Vulcan as a motherfucker.

Beckett Mariner : Fuck, yeah! Logic, bitch!

7 best Star Trek parodies, ranked

Joe Allen

For more than 50 years, Star Trek   has been an institution, especially among the nerds of America. The original Star Trek series has spawned various movies and additional shows in the years since it aired, and those shows have been met with various levels of acclaim and criticism.

7. Star Trek: Lower Decks

  • 6. The Muppet Show – Pigs in Space

5. Animaniacs: Star Truck

4. the orville, 3. futurama: where no fan has gone before, 2. black mirror: uss callister, 1. galaxy quest (1999).

Alongside all of these more faithful series, though, there have also been a number of parodies of  Star Trek , its tropes, and the world it’s set in. We’ve gathered seven of the very best of those parodies for this list, which range from TV episodes to entire movies.

Why not kick this list off with a show that allows  Star Trek  to make fun of itself? Lower Decks  follows the support crew on a fairly unimportant interspace vessel as they try to manage their personal lives, even as they deal with all sorts of sci-fi invaders.

  • 7 best directorial debuts ever, ranked
  • 10 best action movie quotes, ranked
  • 10 most popular 2024 Best Picture Oscar nominees, ranked

As this list proves,  Star Trek  has become such an institution that it can be effectively parodied from dozens of different directions, but this show, which plays with the series’ tropes while offering a new perspective on the action, is a delight from minute one, and is still going strong after its fourth season.

6. The Muppet Show – Pigs in Space

The Muppets may not be as widely beloved today as they once were, but Pigs in Space was once a regular segment on The Muppet Show.  The segment was flexible enough that it could parody any beloved sci-fi property, but  Star Trek  was undoubtedly a mainstay.

This was underlined by the fact that Captain Link Hogthrob seemed to be a pretty overt Captain Kirk riff, and Miss Piggy’s ship was called Swinetrek. Still, Pigs in Space was not particularly biting. Instead, it was the kind of sweet, earnest parody that the Muppets were so often great at.

When the Animaniacs got a chance to invade their favorite TV show, they didn’t miss an opportunity to cause plenty of havoc. Star Truck follows the rascals at the show’s center as they meet characters like Dr. Squat and Captain Kork while also delivering the kind of jokes that only hardcore fans of both shows would fully understand.

If you’re a  Trek  fan, you probably loved this episode, which also gave Maurice Lamarche the chance to do pretty impeccable impressions of William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, and DeForest Kelly.

When Seth MacFarlane set out to create his own version of Star Trek , many people were alarmed by how genuine and sincere it seemed. The Family Guy   creator has long been a megafan of the series, and while  The Orville  has elements of parody, it also seems to be a loving tribute to the show that spawned it.

The show featured notable guest stars from various  Star Trek  shows, and also captured the spirit of the planet-of-the-week adventures that made the original  Star Trek  so widely beloved. While it’s certainly jokier than the original series,  The Orville  is ultimately a loving tribute to what made  Trek  great.

Perhaps the most impressive thing about this Futurama  episode  is that the show manages to reunite almost every member of the original cast to deliver voice performances. The episode imagines that the crew of the Planet Express stumble upon a planet where the entire original cast of the series is alive and well, having been revived hundreds of years after the show’s original run.

The notion of giving these actors a chance to live in a far different future than the one their show imagined was brilliant enough, but all of the actors brought their A-game to these versions of their actual personalities.

Not every Black Mirror  episode  is as sharp and compelling as  USS Callister , which is both a parody and a critique of the entire  Star Trek  ethos. The episode follows the crew of a  Star Trek -esque ship as they’re tortured by their captain. Eventually, we begin to realize that this entire world is a virtual reality, and the entire crew are avatars for co-workers of a single isolated man.

USS Callister  is specific in its references to the original  Star Trek , but it’s also a pointed critique of the misogyny that could underlie much of what that original show tried to achieve, and more crucially, of the show’s many fans who totally misinterpret its message.

One of the great parody movies of any kind ever made,  Galaxy Quest  is set in a universe where a show like  Star Trek  was a phenomenon when it first aired. Now, the cast assembles for reunions, but have grown to hate one another. When real aliens recruit them based on the belief that they are actually the characters they played on the show, they’re forced to prove that they have what it takes to be real heroes.

Thanks to a great ensemble cast that includes Alan Rickman and Sam Rockwell in standout performances,  Galaxy Quest is genuinely funny. What has helped it endure, though, is that it’s also one of the more earnest movies on this list, and it manages to balance those tones beautifully.

Comedy clubs aren't dead, but it's kind of hard to justify going out when Netflix is so willing to bring comedy clubs to you. Every month, Netflix drops a handful of new stand-up comedy specials to keep things fresh, while maintaining an impressive library of its previous specials as well as stand-up films and shows that predate the streaming era.

This month's new additions are Donnell Rawlings: A New Day, Taylor Tomlinson: Have It All, and Mike Epps: Ready To Sell Out. Both Tomlinson and Epps have previously had Netflix comedy specials, but Rawlings gets his first Netflix spotlight in A New Day through his ongoing collaboration with Dave Chappelle, another Netflix regular. Keep reading for our complete list of the best stand-up comedy on Netflix right now, and you can keep the laughter going for a long, long time.

It only took 44 years for a new adaptation of Shōgun to come along and remind viewers that the late James Clavell was an incredible writer. Clavell was a solider in the British army during World War II, and he endured a harsh stint as a POW before his eventual release. Those experiences informed his writing as he went on to become an acclaimed screenwriter, director, and novelist. Shōgun may be Clavell's most famous work, but it's far from his only masterpiece.

Because the new version of Shōgun is currently airing on FX and streaming on Hulu, we're taking a look back at the five best James Clavell movies and shows. Even some film aficionados may not have realized that Clavell was behind some of these flicks. That's why it's important to shine a light on his work, even if some of these projects aren't readily available to be streamed. 5. Noble House (1988)

Adam Sandler was fired from Saturday Night Live, despite being part of one of SNL's best casts. It's a fact he joked about when he returned to host after 25 years in an “I Was Fired” monologue song. But the funnyman had the last laugh. He went on to found Happy Madison Productions, which has produced (and continues to produce) numerous movies, many of which he stars in. The movies were rarely (if ever) praised by critics, but it didn’t matter. Many of them were massive box office successes, thanks in large part to Sandler’s silly comedic antics and signature style.

Sandler went on to prove that he’s a talented actor beyond the comedy genre, starring in movies like Paul Thomas Anderson's Punch-Drunk Love, Uncut Gems, and Hustle. While he has been consistently delivering popular movies, from serious to animated fare, as well as Netflix films like You Are So Not Invited to My Bat Mitzvah, it was the 1990s that solidified Sandler’s position as a cultural comedy icon. Not all his movies from the decade were hits, but each played a role in making him one of the most successful comedy moviemakers and actors of that decade. 7. Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo (1999)
