Star Trek Lower Deck, created by Mike McMahan, is an animated spin-off series set in the Star Trek universe. The show debuted on Paramout+ in October 2020. The show follows the crew of the spaceship USS Cerritos as they roam through galaxies to solve various problems.
What to expect from Star Trek Lower Deck Season 3?
In the second season finale, the Cerritos crew assisted Captain Sonya Gomez and her team in their attempt at the alien race called Lapeerians. Meanwhile, the mission was a success, but Freeman was detained on charges of conspiring with Klingons. And destroying the Pakled planet. The skipper had just received a promotional offer requiring her to leave the ship when she was arrested.
In addition, Beckett Mariner, Tawny Newsome’s daughter, was saddened by the thought. Sam Rutherford of Cordero also found a memory in his storage room. That indicated that his cybernetic implant had been implanted without his will. This put him in a challenging situation, given his problems with the implant throughout the season.
Speaking of the plot of Star Trek Lower Deck Season 3, viewers know that the story will continue after the events of the second season. Fortunately, cast members Eugene Cordero recently hinted at the next season’s storyline. He stated: “I love flipping the kind of storylines you’ve already seen upside down and Easter eggs everywhere. There’s a lot of stuff like that happening in season 3. I think Rutherford is figuring out who he is even more before the Oculus and everything happened.”
Why would Beckett Mariner be a great captain?
Beckett Mariner has a temper, is disobedient, stubborn and can even be downright obnoxious at times. She is also devoted to Starfleet, her friends and her family, even if she does so in an unusual way. The main character doesn’t always follow the rules. But she always manages to get what she wants by acting in her own way.
While she could be a little villain, Mariner would most likely make a great captain. She has the perspective needed to be a great leader due to her experience on various ships. She is also said to have picked up a lot from her mother and Brad, from whom she has coached and learned in various ways. Mariner was able to take her proper position in the series finale, surrounded by her closest companions on the upper decks.
