This feels like it may be more STTNG with a splash of Orville... but animated. I will definitely be giving this a look.

I'm fine with Animated & I'm fine with humor in my Trek.
But I'd prefer to mix in some seriousness.
I'm really going to show my age here but..
I'd love to see an updated animated series like the original animated trek(1973) & toss in humor there.
If this was the case I'd be all aboard!

Wasn't there a TNG episode with the same name?

Yup... and it is the premise of this series. It isn't a serious show because these aren't people making command decisions. They are tying to figure out how to get promoted, sucking up to higher ranking officers, and the general hijinks that go on at the lowest ranks as they go about their daily duties.

I get that... but at the same time this show features characters that will rarely, if ever, be forced to make command decisions. There was an STTNG episode called Lower Decks that this show is based on.

It's a workplace comedy set in the bowls of a Federation Starship featuring low ranked people going about their work day.

Getting ready to watch it now. I'm not a big fan of Rick and Morty but I suspect I will enjoy this.
