Created by Mike McMahan, Star Trek Lower Deck is an animated spinoff series set in the Star Trek universe. The show debuted on Paramout+ in October 2020. The show follows the crew on the Starship USS Cerritos as they roam around galaxies fixing various problems.
What To Expect From Star Trek Lower Deck Season 3?
In the finale of the second season, the Cerritos crew aided 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 the allegation of plotting with Klingons. And annihilating the Pakled Planet. The skipper had just received a promotional offer that would have required her to leave the ship when she was arrested.
Moreover, Beckett Mariner, Tawny Newsome’s daughter, was distressed by the thought. Sam Rutherford of Cordero also found a recollection in his storage area. That indicated his cybernetic implant had been implanted without his will. This put him in a challenging situation, considering his difficulties with the implant throughout the season.
Talking about the plot of Star Trek Lower Deck Season 3, viewers know that it will continue the story after the events of the second season. Fortunately, cast members Eugene Cordero recently hinted at the storyline of the next season. He stated, “I love turning the kind of storylines that you’ve already seen on its head and Easter eggs all over the place. There’s a lot of that stuff happening in season 3. I think there’s even more of Rutherford figuring out who he is before the Oculus and everything happened.”
Why Would Beckett Mariner Be A Great Captian?
Beckett Mariner has a temper, is disobedient, obstinate, and may even be downright unpleasant at times. She is also committed to Starfleet, her friends, and her family, even though she does so in an unusual manner. The protagonist doesn’t always follow the rules. But she always succeeds in getting what she wants by acting in her own manner.
Although she could be a little rogue, Mariner would most likely make a great captain. She has the perspective required to be a great leader because of her experience serving on several ships. She would have also taken up a lot from her mother and Brad, who she has coached and learned from in different ways. Mariner could assume her proper position in the series finale, surrounded by her closest companions on the top decks.
