Voice Cast for Star Trek: Lower Decks Revealed


One of the more exciting bits of news surrounding the Comic-Con is CBS All Access’ reveal of the voice cast for the upcoming animated series Star Trek: Lower Decks. For those not in the know, Star Trek: Lower Decks is a comedy spin-off from the long-running sci-fi megafranchise.

The latest additions to the voice cast are Tawny Newsome (Bajillion Dollar Propertie$, The Comedy Get Down) and Jack Quaid (The Hunger Games, Harvey Girls Forever!).Newsome will play “Mariner,” a no-nonsense engineer who gets the job done and does it well — but really doesn’t care. Quaid voices “Boimler,” a by-the-book ensign who gets his own way. Being polar opposites, these two frequently clash, opening up plenty of character comedy opportunities.

It was also revealed that Noel Wells (Master of None, Craig of the Creek) will play Starfleet mega-fan, ensign Tendi; Eugene Cordero (The Good Place, Steven Universe) is ensign Rutherford, a brilliant engineer who nevertheless rarely solves the problem by the end of the episode; and the cast is rounded out with Fred Tatasciore as Lt. Shaxs, Dawnn Lewis as Captain Freeman, and Gillian Vigman as Dr. T’ana.
