From Wikipedia™: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_Trek:_Lower_Decks

Star Trek: Lower Decks focuses on "the support crew serving on one of Starfleet’s least important ships" in the year 2380.

Cast and characters

Tawny Newsome as Ensign Beckett Mariner:
An ensign aboard the U.S.S. Cerritos. Newsome described the character as irreverent and someone who does not follow the rules, though she is actually "very good at all things Starfleet, she just doesn’t care" and has been demoted several times. Newsome added that Mariner "just wants to ride her skateboard and eat her piece of pizza in peace, man".

Jack Quaid as Ensign Brad Boimler:
An ensign aboard the Cerritos, Boimler is a stickler for the rules and will need to learn how to improvise if he is to become a Captain one day Quaid described the character by saying "he would nail the written portion of the driving test with flying colors but once it actually got to him being in the car, it would be a complete and total disaster".

Noël Wells as Ensign Tendi:
An ensign in the medical bay aboard the Cerritos, Tendi is a big fan of Starfleet, who is always thrilled to be working on a starship. She is new to the Cerritos at the start of the series, and helps introduce the audience to the setting and characters. McMahan saw Tendi as acting like himself if he ever got the chance to work on a starship.

Eugene Cordero as Ensign Rutherford:
An ensign aboard the Cerritos, Rutherford is adjusting to a new cyborg implant. McMahan compared Rutherford to the Star Trek: The Next Generation character Geordi La Forge, saying they are both "amazing at engineering stuff" but Rutherford does not always solve the problem like Geordi because he is still learning.

Dawnn Lewis as Captain Carol Freeman: The captain of the Cerritos. McMahan described her as a capable Starfleet captain whose starship is not very important.

Jerry O'Connell as Commander Jack Ransom: A commander aboard the Cerritos that McMahan compared to Star Trek: The Next Generation's William Riker, if he was on speed and had less shame.

Fred Tatasciore as Lieutenant Shaxs: A Bajoran lieutenant aboard the Cerritos.

Gillian Vigman as Lieutenant T'Ana:
A Caitian doctor and head of medical aboard the Cerritos. McMahan described her as "a good doctor, but she’s an unpleasant cat". Including a Caitian in the series is a reference to Star Trek: The Animated Series which also starred a member of that species, M'Ress.
