For those of you living in the US, the first episode of Star Trek: Lower Decks is available to watch for free on YouTube! (Or for those of you who use a VPN as well!) I surprisingly found myself laughing while watching this episode, coming in with no expectations.
A lot of nostalgia for Star Trek: The Next Generation kicked in almost immediately, however, with a good amount of familiar audio sound effects and ship designs. The story of Second Contact was an interesting concept to explore and it’s fun to see how 2nd Tier Starfleet handles alien crises.
I hope this show turns out to be amazing as well as popular, as we all need good Trek in our lives.
Edit: Premiere no longer available.
