Star Trek fans, it’s time to rejoice! The all-new season of Star Trek: Lower Decks is set to hit your television screens and it is too wholesome! At the San Diego Comic-Con 2023, Paramount+ announced the release date for the hit animated series Star Trek: Lower Decks season 4 and we’ve got all the details.

Set in the Star Trek universe, the series revolves around the escapades and missions undertaken by the ‘lower deckers’ aka the junior officers with less prominent roles, who serve on the USS Cerritos, which is considered to be one of Starfleet’s less significant starships.

Created by Mike McMahan, the tone of the series blends sci-fi elements with lighthearted storylines, making for a great addition to the Star Trek universe. At the centre of the show is a diverse group of characters, with each having its own quirks, personality and comic timing. The series then focuses on these characters and their endeavours as they navigate the challenges of space exploration on the starship.

Apart from season 4, the streaming giant has also ordered Star Trek: Lower Decks season 5 which will comprise 10 episodes and is currently in the early stages of development. So, while season 5 goes into pre-production, let’s take a look at the plot, release date and trailer of Star Trek: Lower Decks season 4.

While managing all this, they also have to deal with new and familiar alien species.
