Star Trek: Lower Decks creator, the brilliant Mike McMahan was joined by stars of the show: Tawny Newsome, Jerry O’Connell, Noël Wells, Eugene Cordero, and Dawnn Lewis to celebrate the terrific, new season at the season two premiere party which took place on August 4, 2021 at the CBS Radford Lot in Los Angeles, California. The Star Trek: Lower Decks family were all so ecstatic to be at the event. O’Connell was ever so kind and took time to personally greet all attendees, welcome them with open arms and thank them for attending the event. Iconic voice actor, Tom Kenny (who voices the role of the legendary, fan-favorite, animated character, SpongeBob SquarePants), also joined in on the fun and attended the marvelous screening event. Kenny voices the role of Quimp in the series.
The tremendous amount of joy this exceptional series brings to viewers was reflected at the special screening with a phenomenal U.S.S. Cerritos “block party” for attendees to enjoy.

Attendees were also able to snack along with Mariner, Boimler, Tendi and Rutherford and have some delectable street corn as seen in the series. The merriment continued with an amusing crane game where guests had the chance to win a Star Trek: Lower Decks shirt, fantastic photo-opps and to quench guests’ thirst, there was even an awesome U.S.S. Cerritos cocktail bar.
Then, it was time to enter in the world of the Star Trek: Lower Decks crew-members as guests got comfy on lawn chairs with their branded Paramount+ blankets and relished in getting a sneak peek at the series with the first two episodes of the show.
