Ship Talking with Lower Decks

Sadly, Lower Decks season 1’s DVD and Blu-ray release did not include any audio commentaries. However, the set for Lower Decks season 2 included commentaries on four episodes

The first commentary for Lower Decks season 3 will appear on the season opener, “Grounded.” It will feature the return of Lower Decks commentary alums Jonathan Frakes (William Riker), Tawny Newsome (Beckett Mariner), and showrunner and series creator Mike McMahan.

The next commentary will appear on episode 6, “Hear All, Trust Nothing.” This will feature guest stars and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine stars Nana Visitor (Kira Nerys) and Armin Shimerman (Quark). This commentary will also feature the return of Newsome, McMahan, and Jack Quaid (Bradward Boimler), who each appeared in season 2 commentaries. It will further include the commentary debut of Noël Wells (D’Vana Tendi) and Eugene Cordero (Samanthan Rutherford). The full Beta Shift complement!

Another commentary will appear on episode 7, “A Mathematically Perfect Redemption.” Two new commentary guests will join McMahan on this track: Lower Decks supervising and episodic director Barry Kelly and Kether Donohue (Peanut Hamper).

The next commentary will appear on episode 8: “Crisis Point 2: Paradoxus.” This commentary will feature Newsome, Wells, Quaid, and McMahan. It will also be the Lower Decks commentary debut for Jerry O’Connell (Jack Ransom).

The final commentary will appear on the season finale, “The Stars at Night.” It will feature the return of Quaid, along with the first appearance by Dawnn Lewis (Captain Carol Freeman) and Fred Tatasciore (Lt. Shax). 

Lower Decks season 3

Lower Decks season 3.

We dream of commentaries on every Lower Decks episode. However, fifty percent commentary coverage is higher than any other recently released Trek season. What will Frakes reveal about the Titan in the Lower Decks season 3 commentaries? April can’t arrive soon enough.
