There's only a few days away until Star Trek: Lower Decks makes it debut, revealing a completely different perspective of the Star Trek Universe. A trailer has already been revealed for the upcoming series which teases the difficulty of being part of a starship crew. And in a first look clip released at the Comic-Con@Home virtual panel, fans get to see more of the show's gruesome aspects.


The first look released for Lower Decks is basically an extended scene of the trailer where Beckett Mariner teases Brad Boimler while he was reading out his "Captain's log." After going out of the closet, it was revealed that Mariner is drunk by drinking Romulan whiskey, which is against the regulations. She then takes out a bloody Klingon Bat'leth, swings it across Boimler, urging him to spar with her. However, it doesn't take long before disaster strikes, with Boimler's thigh getting stabbed by Mariner. You can check out the clip below!

Showrunner and executive producer Mike McMahan jokes that while there won't be people getting chopped in the leg in every bat'leth episode, there's always the possibility of it happening when you're serving on a Starfleet ship.

The description for Lower Decks reads as follows:

"Developed by Emmy Award winner Mike McMahan (Rick and Morty, Solar Opposites), Star Trek: Lower Decks, a new half-hour animated comedy series, focuses on the support crew serving on one of Starfleet's least important ships, the U.S.S. Cerritos, in 2380. Ensigns Mariner, Boimler, Rutherford and Tendi have to keep up with their duties and their social lives, often while the ship is being rocked by a multitude of sci-fi anomalies."

Star Trek: Lower Decks features the voices of Tawny Newsome, Jack Quaid, Noël Wells, and Eugene Cordero. The series is set for release this August 6th on CBS All Access.
