‘Star Trek: Lower Decks’ Clip Takes Crew on a Bar Tour — Exclusive

Over the course of four seasons, “Star Trek” animated series “Lower Decks” has seen its crew of lowly officers take on the worst jobs in all of Starfleet, the type of menial work that only those at the very bottom of the chain of command are asked to do. But in the show’s upcoming episode, the core four characters get an assignment that promises much nicer pleasures: a glorified bar crawl.

“Parth Ferengi’s Heart Place,” the sixth episode of “Lower Decks” ongoing fourth season, sees junior lieutenant’s Mariner (Tawny Newsome), Boimler (Jack Quaid), Rutherford (Eugene Cordero), and Tendi (Noël Wells) assigned to Starfleet’s “Travel Guide Duty.” In a clip exclusively shared with IndieWire from the episode, directed by Brandon Williams with a script by Cullen Crawford, their superior first officer Jack Ransom (voiced by Jerry O’Connell) explains that the job, one of Starfleet’s most coveted, involves updating a planet’s entry in the fleet’s official travel guide, meaning they’ll receive all-expenses paid access to the system’s museums and historical sites. But mostly? They’ll be visiting a lot of bars.
