The first season of Star Trek: Lower Decks will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray on Tuesday, May 18th. This unique comedy Star Trek series was a big hit when it first aired on CBS All Access (now Paramount+) This series was a big hit with Star Trek fans not only because of the humor, but of the many different easter eggs hidden throughout the series. Often after an episode had been released social media would buzz with “Did you spot this or notice that?” One of the more unique easter eggs was the infamous Star Trek Helmet that was made in the 1970’s by the toy company Remco.
This series followed four Ensigns that were assigned to the California-Class USS Cerritos. These Ensigns try to fulfill their duties without going insane from the hustle and bustle in the lower decks are Beckett Mariner (who holds a secret), Brad Boimler (who wishes to rise to the rank of Captain), D’Vana Tendi (an Orion who is starstruck about being onboard) and Sam Rutherford (who has a cybernetic implant and loves engineering). There are also several cameo appearances by characters seen in other series.
