Tawny Newsome, Jack Quaid, Noël Wells and Eugene Cordero have joined the cast of “Star Trek: Lower Decks.” The announcement came during the show’s segment of the “Star Trek Universe” Hall H panel moderated by actor Jerry O’Connell at Comic-Con 2019.
The half-hour animated series, from “Rick & Morty” head writer Mike McMahan, will focus on the support crew serving on one of Starfleet’s least important ships and will be the first production by CBS Eye Animation Productions, CBS Television Studios’ new animation arm.
The series will take place in the year 2380, right after the events of “Nemesis,” show creator Mike McMahan told the crowd at Comic-Con.
Alex Kurtzman, who serves as the showrunner for “Star Trek: Discovery” and captains the “Trek” universe for CBS All Access, is on board under his Secret Hideout banner, as is Roddenberry Entertainment.
The show received a two-season order last October.
