Last year in October, CBS All Access gave a two-season order to the adult animated series Star Trek: Lower Decks, to be created by Rick & Morty writer Mike McMahan. It will focus on the the support crew serving on one of Starfleet's least important ships.
All Access is also working on a series that will see the return of Patrick Stewart as Captain Jean-Luc Picard.
