Welcome back to Warp Factor, where we’re celebrating the premiere of Star Trek: Lower Decks. The new animated Trek show has hit CBS All Access, so we’re discussing all of it with series creator Mike McMahan, as well as stars Tawny Newsome (Mariner), Jerry O’Connell (Ransom), Eugene Cordero (Rutherford), and Noël Wells (Tendi).
Does Ransom have his eye on the captain’s chair? Is Rutherford’s love life going to be as hopeless as Geordi’s was, and does he care? What episode is Tawny Newsome especially excited about?
All of this is covered in our new episode, as well as Mariner’s special connection to the captain of the U.S.S. Cerritos.
It’s time for Darmok and Jalad at Tanagra! Give a watch to the new Warp Factor right here.
