Star Trek: Voyager is getting a lot of love on Star Trek: Lower Decks.

Star Trek: Lower Decks will be going back to the Delta Quadrant when they return on Sept. 7 for their fourth season. But, not really. They won’t really be going back to the Delta Quadrant, but it appears as though they’ll be at least visiting the only Starfleet ship (at this point and time) that has been to the deep recesses of said quadrant.

In Lower Decks’ fourth season, the U.S.S. Cerritos will be running into an old friend, as the U.S.S. Voyager has been confirmed to appear in the fourth season of the show. While it’s not clear what episode the Voyager will appear in, it’s likely to be the very first episode.

Firstly, it’s an episode title that references a classic Voyager episode; Tuvix. The Lower Decks episode is called Twovix, thus implying a sequel to the Voyager episode. Secondly, the trailer shows Voyager, and trailers notoriously only show the first few episodes of a given season for a variety of reasons. The two most important include protecting spoilers because the trailer is often worked on at the start of production.

This means later episode clips aren’t available to them.

The U.S.S. Voyager will also be seen in Star Trek: Prodigy, sorta

While the Voyager will appear on Lower Decks, they aren’t the only ones giving the ship and show love. Prodigy is also bringing in their own Voyager, the Voyager II to be exact, as well as the doctor of the titular show and ship, The Doctor.

While we don’t know where the show will air its second season, we do know that Star Trek: Voyager alum Robert Picardo will be debuting on the show as a way to bridge both series’ together.

Who knows if this will lead to another sequel series ala Picard to The Next Generation, but if it does lead to a Voyager revival, it could be interesting.
