Star Trek: Lower Decks Season 3 Plot
Star Trek: Lower Decks Season 3 will pick up where the second season left us. The second season of Lower Decks concludes on a sad note. Boimler almost had a death experience so close, and right when they believed they were clear, Captain Freeman gets detained.
Now, as we know the upcoming season will be the continuation of these events, showrunner Mike McMahan offered some hints about what we can expect from Lower Decks Season 3.
Mike revealed “Season 3 sees Boimler taking this different path where he becomes a little bit more confident, our Boimler. It earns him some respect, but it also takes him into some tough spots too.”
Next comes Rutherford, who went on to get into lots of trouble in the last two seasons because of his cybernetic infix. “You’ll be learning more about the backstory of how he got [the implant] this season in a really fun way,” McMahan stated.
Coming to Tendi, Mike reveals she will have more of a Spock-like character. He said, “She’s got this new gig, which is instead of being full medical, she’s been swapped over into senior science officer training.”
We will update this section as more information is available about it.
