Star Trek's newest spin-off reveals brand new details for season 1 episodes

Star Trek's latest spin-off, the animated comedy Star Trek: Lower Decks, has beamed up some brand new details about its first season before it hits screens in August.

CBS All Access has revealed the titles of the first four episodes of the series and they'll certainly keep you guessing about just what we're in store for with the USS Cerritos crew.

The first episode will be called 'Second Contact', episode two is named 'Envoys', the third episode is titled 'Temporal Edict' and episode four has the rather intriguing title of 'Moist Vessel'.

Lower Decks breaks from Star Trek tradition by following the lowly support crew "serving on one of Starfleet's least-important ships" and has been developed by Emmy-winning Rick and Morty writer Mike McMahan.

The show's voice cast includes The Boys star Jack Quaid as Ensign Brad Boimler, Tawny Newsome as Ensign Beckett Mariner, Noël Wells as Ensign Tendi and Eugene Cordero as Ensign Rutherford.

McMahan has also teased that we could potentially hear some familiar voices in the show in future, pointing out that "there are a lot of recognisable characters in the galaxy at that point".

"Next Gen is my favourite era. And as a huge Trek fan, I would definitely want to try to use some of them so that I could not only build out the world, but also work with some of my heroes," he said.

Star Trek: Lower Decks will premiere on CBS All Access on August 6. There is not currently a UK release date but hopefully one will materialise soon.

Star Trek: Discovery airs on CBS All Access in the US and Netflix internationally, including the UK. Star Trek: Picard airs on CBS All Access in the US and Amazon Prime Video internationally, including the UK.
