Star Trek: Lower Decks Took a Serious Turn, and Really Earned It

Seven episodes into Star Trek: Lower Decks, the show has found itself in a comfortable, if at times frustrating, groove. We have a plot for one half of our Lower Deckers, we have a subplot for the other, and in both, there are lots of fun trope poking. It’s all very earnest and silly fun. But this week, as the show…Read more...

On Star Trek: Lower Decks, We Finally Meet an Ensign Who Actually Sucks at Their Job

When Star Trek: Lower Decks was first announced, the elevator pitch was essentially “people on an unimportant Starfleet ship being comically bad at their jobs.” And while its heroes have done plenty of mucking up (about as much as any Starfleet officer we’ve met on screen does, really), Lower Decks so far has…Read more...

Star Trek: Discovery's New Trailer Brings the Fight for the Federation to the Far Future

The crew of the Discovery made a terrible sacrifice at the end of season two, leaving their lives as they knew them behind and flinging the ship 930 years into the future, where the Federation is in some dire straits of its own (again). Now it seems it’s up to Michael and her friends to remind them of what the…Read more...

Lower Decks' Romantic Farce Asks What Happens When You've Seen Too Much Star Trek

So far, Star Trek: Lower Decks has found itself striking a pretty fine balance between jabbing at its franchise’s nerdiness and truly embracing it. But this week, in perhaps its closest move yet to comedic farce, it ponders an interesting question: what happens when a Star Trek character has seen too much Trek for…Read more...

Lower Decks Finally Dives Into What Made Its Star Trek Namesake So Great

Star Trek: Lower Decks is, in a lot of ways, not really like “Lower Decks,” the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode it is named for. But in between bouts of Trek-y silliness that have made the show so endearing so far, its fourth episode finally brings itself closer to its predecessor by delving into the series’…Read more...

Star Trek: Lower Decks Tackles One of Starfleet's Oldest, Funniest Questions

We all have questions about some of the banal things that happen on Star Trek ships. One I’ve always loved thinking about the most is that interplay when an officer asks somehow how long it’ll take do some technobabbley thing, and they reply that it’ll take hours. Why does it take so long to do things in this magical…Read more...

Tardigrades’ rights to be kickass water bears hardcore enough to survive in space’s vacuum just got defended by the United States Court of Appeals for the Second City Circuit.

CBS All Access might become Paramount+ because originality is overrated

We’ve been hearing for a few months that ViacomCBS wants to completely rebrand the CBS All Access streaming service, turning it into a proper Netflix/Hulu/Disney/Amazon/Apple/HBO/Quibi competitor rather than just the dedicated home of The Good Fight, The Twilight Zone, and the various Star Trek shows. We’ve already…Read more...

On Star Trek: Lower Decks, Everyone's Just a Bunch of Adorable Nerds

Star Trek has a reputation as the “serious” sci-fi adventure series for a reason. Put away your whizzbang space-dogfights and your glowstick swords, this is the franchise where serious science happens! Diplomatic talks! Sample analysis! Everyone’s basically a bunch of geeks.

Star Trek: Lower Decks Is Fun as Hell, and So Much More

Coming into Star Trek: Lower Decks, there was a lot of uncertainty about the franchise boldly going into a comedic frontier. Star Trek has always been open to humor in the past, but would it still feel like Star Trek if one of its own shows was more about laughs than interstellar exploration? Thankfully, we don’t need…Read more...

Hold Onto Your Peacock, CBS All Access Just Got Better

Earlier this year, CBS All Access tapped the trove of ViacomCBS assets and introduced a mini library of Paramount films to its service—a move that made a good service even better.

The Sexist Legacy in Star Trek’s Progressive Universe

In the fourth episode of Star Trek: Picard, a familiar face storms onto the scene. With plenty of legacy characters, this might just be another day at the (space) office.

Star Trek: Lower Deck's First Trailer Is What Would Happen If Idiots Like Us Were on a Starship

We love to joke about the disaster humans (and disaster Vulcans, Klingons, Bajorans, Bolians, liberated Borgs, and so on) that make up the myriad crews of Star Trek shows. Sure they’re professionals, but they’re messy and goofy too, just like us! Well, the animated Lower Decks trailer reveals what would happen if you…Read more...

Star Trek's Michelle Yeoh Reminisces About Being 'The Nice Captain' Again in Short Treks

Poor Phillipa Georgiou. We didn’t get to spend all that much time with Michelle Yeoh’s noble captain of the Shenzhou in Star Trek: Discovery before she got a Klingon knife to the chest, but her performance lived on as she got to take on Georgiou’s cartoonishly villainous Mirror Universe self. But as fun as that is,…Read more...
