The series, created by Mike McMahan, is the first comedy Star Trek series in history; where most Treks follow a brave captain and their key crew members on quests to explore strange new worlds, Lower Decks focuses on the ensigns who tend to get killed anonymously in the backgrounds of shots. The official synopsis:

Ensign Tendi has her first day of work on Starfleet's U.S.S. Cerritos, where she meets fellow support crew members, Ensigns Mariner, Boimler and Rutherford. Meanwhile, Boimler is tasked with a secret special assignment and Rutherford attempts to keep his dating life intact while a sci-fi disaster strikes the ship.
