Star Trek: Lower Decks, the animated comedy series set in the Star Trek universe, has been making waves with its unique approach to storytelling.
Taking its name and premise from a late episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation, ‘Lower Decks’ focuses on four junior crew members and is told mostly from their perspective.
One of the main characters in the series is Sito Jaxa, who had previously appeared as a cadet in the episode ‘The First Duty.’
This episode revolved around Wesley Crusher’s involvement in a conspiracy to cover up an accident that resulted in the death of a fellow cadet. It also introduced Nicholas Locarno, who was intended to be the helm officer in Voyager but was later replaced by Tom Paris.
Producers have given various explanations for the change in character, with some citing concerns about Locarno’s redeemability after his actions in ‘The First Duty.’ However, there are also suggestions that the decision was made to avoid paying royalties to the character’s creators.
Despite the intricate connections and references to past episodes, ‘Lower Decks’ manages to stand on its own as a compelling series. While it caters to fans with its abundance of Easter eggs and callbacks, it never loses sight of the importance of telling a good story.
The latest episode of ‘Lower Decks’ continues to showcase the series’ ability to balance nostalgia with original storytelling. Even if you’re not familiar with the background information, the episode still offers an enjoyable viewing experience.
