The animated series follows four ensigns — Mariner, Boimler, Rutherford and Tendi — who are assigned to the lower decks of the USS Cerritos, one of the least important ships in Starfleet. While Captain Freeman leads the bridge on epic adventures, the ensigns are left for duties like holodeck waste disposal. But as the Cerritos flies deeper into space, new dangers may force the ensigns into action earlier than they might have imagined.
If the show’s art reminds you of “Rick and Morty,” there’s a reason for that. Mike McMahan, a writer and producer on the first four seasons of the hit Adult Swim show, is creator and developer for this new “Trek” comedy.
