Lower Decks Season 1 Plot Summary
Star Trek: Lower Decks season 1 largely revolved around introducing us to the show’s characters and its world. Beckett Mariner’s relationship with Captain Freeman is revealed by the season’s end and we’re introduced to characters who will later be pivotal to the show, like an Exocomp named Peanut Hamper and the villainous race of mental inferiors the Pakleds.
