Star Trek: Lower Decks promises “really cool stuff” to come.
Star Trek: Lower Decks may see another season, but they may not. Considering how Paramount+ is currently going, anything is possible. But before we can think about a new season, fans are still anxiously waiting to get through the current one. One that series showrunner Mike McMahon is all too excited for fans to see.
Speaking to the fans at the New York Comic Con (viaTrekMovie.com), Mike McMahan made it clear that fans haven’t seen anything yet.
When speaking about the current season of Lower Decks, McMahan went on to explain that there were a few episodes of season four that the press didn’t get a preview of, and the reason why is because there’s “some really cool stuff coming” and likely he didn’t want them spoiled to the fans.
McMahan is quoted as saying;
"When we have characters from other Star Trek show up, that’s always a huge deal because if they’re going to be on screen, there’s such a gravitational pull of emotion and attention that we have to be honoring them. But we also have to be building and respecting what they created before. And it’s in a comedy environment that we can never punch down. I never want to make fun of these performers. I love their work and you you want them to be able to be a part of the fun. You don’t want them to be like Superintendent Chalmers showing up and being like, “What’s all this fun in Star Trek!” Because they are fun too. There’s a couple episodes of season 4 that we have not released to the press because there’s some really cool stuff coming."
Mike McMahon is hinting at more Star Trek characters coming in
The world of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds is largely built around cameos from other characters and other shows. It’s one of the staples of the brand and we’ve seen actors like Robert Duncan McNeill and John de Lancie pop up on the show reprising their roles from other Trek series.
It’s likely that if he’s not releasing these episodes early, it’s due to him having major cameos in place for the episodes. Who knows who they’ll end up being, but they’re likely to be a big enough deal to keep things under wraps.
