Latest Trailer for ‘Strange New Worlds’ Features ‘Lower Decks’ Characters

With all the Star Trek series coming out today, it was only natural that there would be crossovers, but the second season of has a special appearance from some characters from an animated series.

Jack Quaid and Tawny Newsome are set to guest star as Ensigns Boimler and Mariner from Star Trek: Lower Decks, and we have our first look at them thanks to the latest trailer for the second season of Strange New Worlds. Watch this:

Here’s the official description for Strange New Worlds 2:

In series two of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise, under the command of Captain Christopher Pike, confronts increasingly dangerous stakes, explores uncharted territories, and encounters new life and civilisations. The crew will also embark on personal journeys that will continue to test their resolve and redefine their destinies.

It’s actually curious how Boimler and Mariner appear in Strange New Worlds since Lower Decks takes place after The Next Generation, which happens way after The Original Series. My guess is they could find their way into the Enterprise via time travel, and it’s possible they know all about the stories of Pike, Kirk, and Spock long after they’ve retired.

Then again I’m just speculating. Lower Decks is just a fun little variation to the Trek formula, and I’m happy to see Boimler and Mariner get some more attention. It would be great if we got to see the rest of the Cerritos crew in live-action, even if just for a little bit.

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds premieres on Paramount+ on June 15.

Star Trek: Lower Decks Stars Enter the World of Live Action

The Lower Decks crew have entered live–action!

The new trailer for Star Trek: Strange New Worlds season 2, premiering on Paramount+ this June 15, brings with it our first look at the big crossover event. Jack Quaid and Tawny Newsome, who voice the animated characters Beckett Mariner and Brad Boimler on Star Trek: Lower Decks, will embody their characters in live–action form.

“Surprise!” Newsome’s Mariner tells a perplexed Captain Pike (Anson Mount) and Spock (Ethan Peck), alongside a noticeably purple–haired Boimler.

Quaid and Newsome will appear in a season 2 episode directed by Jonathan Frakes, a.k.a. Captain Riker from Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Picard. The hour will also feature animation in addition to the actors’ live–action performances.

Quaid previously teased the television event to EW by saying, “Ethan Peck and I have a bromance for the ages. We call it Spoimler: Spock and Boimler. It’s amazing, but that whole cast is so friendly and welcoming and cool. We just had a ball, and we got to be directed by Jonathan Frakes. So what could be better?”

The trailer teases that Spoimler bromance with Spock giving Boimler the Vulcan salute as he’s about to beam off ship. “Live long and prosper, Mr. Boimler,” he says.

The footage also gives fans a fresh look at Paul Wesley’s James T. Kirk and new addition to the cast Carol Kane, who will portray the recurring role of Pelia.

Returning are Rebecca Romijn as Una Chin–Riley, Jess Bush as Christine Chapel, Christina Chong as La’An Noonien–Singh, Celia Rose Gooding as Nyota Uhura, Melissa Navia as Erica Ortegas, and Babs Olusanmokun as Joseph M’Benga.

Episodes of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds will drop weekly every Thursday starting June 15.

‘Star Trek: Lower Decks’ Renewed for Season 5

Star Trek: Lower Decks has officially been renewed for Season 5 several months ahead of Season 4’s debut on Paramount+. The streamer announced today that the adult animated season would be getting a 10–episode order for its fifth season, along with a summer release window for the long–anticipated Season 4.

Lower Decks is Star Trek‘s most comedic offering with the series hailing from the mind of Emmy Award winner Mike McMahan (Rick and Morty, Solar Opposites). The series follows the crew of the USS Cerritos, namely a handful of ensigns tasked with the most menial work Starfleet has to offer—but that doesn’t mean they don’t get up to some of the Federation’s most wild adventures. Lower Decks‘ animated format and adult target audience have allowed the series to truly take the franchise where none of its series have gone before. Ensigns Mariner (Tawny Newsome), Boimler (Jack Quaid), Tendi (Noël Wells), Rutherford (Eugene Cordero), and Provisional Ensign T’Lyn—a new addition to the group following the Season 3 finale—are set to run into new and classic aliens on their upcoming adventures as they attempt to keep up with their duties.

Lower Decks Is Boldly Going to Strange New Worlds

While we don’t know much about the plot of Star Trek: Lower Decks Season 4, it was announced during SDCC that the lower deckers would be making a trip to the Enterprise. During the convention’s Star Trek Universe panel, Newsome and Quaid joined Anson Mount on stage to announce that Season 2 of Strange New Worlds will feature a crossover episode between the two shows. It’s anyone’s guess how the two shows will collide given that they’re set at different points in the Star Trek timeline, but we do know that the episode will feature Newsome, Quaid, and the other lower–deckers playing themselves, as well as animated versions of the Strange New Worlds cast.

Paramount+ Sets Star Trek Release Schedule Through 2024

In addition to the news of Lower Decks‘ renewal and release window, Paramount+ announced that Strange New Worlds has been renewed for Season 3 with Season 2 set to hit the streamer on June 15. Star Trek‘s other animated series, Prodigy, which follows a rag–tag group of alien kids under the watchful eye of a Captain Janeway (Kate Mulgrew) hologram, has set a winter release window for Season 2. And though it was recently announced that Star Trek: Discovery will be ending with Season 5, we still have several episodes to look forward to when the series returns in early 2024.

Meanwhile, Star Trek: Picard is currently airing its incredible third and final season. With only a few weeks left until the series finale, you still have time to catch up on Paramount+, and join the chorus of fans and cast members hopeful for a Star Trek: Legacy spin–off series.
