A Rick and Morty writer will take Star Trek where no Trek has gone before—comedy
Do you maintain a soft spot for the beloved yet campy 1970s staple, Star Trek: The Animated Series? Have you lost more than one afternoon reading old script outlines and scanning concept art for the forgotten mid-2000s project, Star Trek: The Final Frontier? Today, Trek cartoon fanatics, may be your lucky day.
According to Variety, CBS has officially ordered two seasons of Star Trek: Lower Decks, a new animated Trek series eventually coming to the CBS All-Access streaming service. The new project is being developed by Mike McMahan, a writer on Rick and Morty, and it will focus on the support crew working on one of the other Starfleet ships.
