The Star Trek universe never stops expanding and now, it reached the realms of the animated comedies. CBS All Access has released a new trailer for its upcoming new spinoff Star Trek: Lower Decks.

The new animated show will follow the lower ranking Starfleet personnel stationed on “one of the Starfleet’s least important ships, the U.S.S. Cerritos, in 2380.”

The show was created by Rick and Morty writer Mike McMahan and its characters are tasked with important missions such as taking out the space trash. Oh, and they will also save planets and keep human hearts beating without a body—small things like that.

The show will premiere on the streaming service on Thursday, August 6. It will feature Eugene Cordero as Ensign Rutherford, Tawny Newsome as Mariner, Jack Quaid as Bomler, and Noel Wells as Tendi. Jerry O’Connell will voice Commander Ramson and Dawnn Lewis will voice Captain Freeman.

It should be refreshing to see a show focusing on the less glamorous jobs in the fleet rather than on the unbeatable heroes that usually get all the spotlight.
