    Well, it certainly isn't "Star Trek". It looks more like "Red Dwarf"
    with the comedy (or what passes for it) ramped even further than "The
    Orville". :-\

    The official trailer for CBS All Access' new half-hour animated
    comedy "Star Trek: Lower Decks" has arrived, and it's putting an
    irreverent spin on the beloved franchise.

    "We're not really elite - we're more like the cool, scrappy
    underdogs," explains lower-deck Ensign Mariner in the trailer.

    "We live on a spaceship, nobody is dying from a spear wound!" she
    exclaims in the midst of some onboard mayhem.

    The 10-episode series, which has already been renewed for a second
    season, is the first animated "Star Trek" series in more than
    45 years. "Star Trek: The Animated Series" had a brief run starting
    in 1973.

    CBS All Access subscribers can watch the show each week on
    Thursdays starting Aug. 6 on the digital subscription video
    on-demand and live streaming service,

    "Rick and Morty" veteran Mike McMahan developed "Star Trek: Lower
    Decks," which focuses on the support crew that lives in the bowels
    at the very bottom of the U.S.S. Cerritos - known as one of the
    Starfleet's least important ships - in the year 2380.

    The Starfleet lower decks crew includes Ensign Beckett Mariner,
    voiced by Tawny Newsome, Ensign Brad Boimler, voiced by Jack Quaid,
    Ensign Tendi, voiced by NoŽl Wells and Ensign Rutherford, voiced by
    Eugene Cordero.

    It's the first animated series in CBS All Access' "Star Trek"
    franchise, which also includes "Star Trek: Picard," "Star Trek:
    Discovery" and the recently-announced "Star Trek: Strange New
    Worlds."

    Also coming up are a Section 31-based series with Michelle Yeoh and
    a CG-animated "Star Trek" series for younger audiences in the works
    at Nickelodeon.
