Star Trek: Lower Decks Season 3 Storyline: What will happen next?
The series examines the life and activities of the support crew of the Starfleet USS Cerritos in 2380. The term Lower Decks was first introduced in Star Trek: The Next Generation, where an episode was named lower decks. The show shows a different perspective on Starfleet background staff. There are four Ensign on the Starfleet, who work on the ship.
The first episode, Second Contact, introduces the four ensigns of the USS Cerritos, which is apparently a not-so-important ship in the federation. Ensign Beckett is an overconfident individual who often disdains the Starfleet rules to do her thing. There is also Ensign Boimer, who fantasizes of becoming a captain one day. Ensign Rutherford just got a fresh cybernetic transplant, and finally, Ensign Tendi a medical doctor, just transferred to the USS Cerritos.
The final episode, No Small Parts, opens up with the Starfleet orbiting planet Beta III; remember the planet was introduced in Star Trek The Original Series, where the people of Beta III served a god called Landry, a computer that made people at a particular hour during the day called the Red Hour.
