Star Trek Online gives out free Lower Decks duty officers, starts summer event

This week, Star Trek’s newest TV series debuted. But instead of it being a serious, live-action show, Star Trek: Lower Decks is an animated comedy that looks at the antics of second-shift crew on a second-tier starship.

It’s also an opportunity for Star Trek Online, which has to be giddy with all the potential crossovers these days. Cryptic sent word that it’s giving away four free special duty officers from Lower Decks to anyone who logs into the game.

In addition to that promotion, the game’s Risa summer event is going on now through September 3rd. Players can have some fun in the sun while earning some nifty rewards. Goodies that can be got from the event include a Risan weather control vessel, baseball outfits, a rainbow tribble, and a t-shirt for the band “Sex Phasers.”

Free things are free things but like many giveaways too they are claimable only from Fed/Fed Alligned toons so I could not get for any but one of my toons

Not seen Lower Decks yet but I haven’t heard many good things about it from those who have . I guess I will take a look if its ever made available for streaming in the UK .

I know I’m an outlier, but I loved the show. The characters are interesting and sweet and the show is not afraid to make fun of the usual Star Trek tropes. I was kind of sad when I realized I have to watch this, one weekly episode at a time.

I don’t think you are an outlier…As a loooong time Trek fan who is a little bitter about the direction of the latest shows, this show had a great TNG vibe to it and the comedy didn’t seem forced. I too am disappointed that CBS is doing the weekly episode thing, kinda dumb nowadays.

I’d assume they’re doing it weekly to kind of mess with the people who subscribe for a month, watch everything over a weekend and then unsubscribe again. I haven’t been impressed enough with the little I’ve seen of any of the new Trek series to want to pay for CBS Arm Twist to watch them. But I know someone who has done it that way and watched all of Picard and Discovery to date with only one month’s sub.

I think it’s very good, charming and funny. Funnily enough, I learned about it’s existence from the Culture Warriors of YouTube who ranted and raged about how nobody is going to watch this ‘garbage’. Thanks Culture Warriors!

Also, I just love how one of their prominent criticisms is ‘Oh God, more of this CalArts bullshit’ without ever explaining what the eff they mean. As if that statement alone is some kind of unshakable condemnation.

While the internet cries it’s death on arrival I plan to watch it for the next few years. It’s a slow start but I will see where it goes.

The Summer event started on the 4th so you are a little behind… The Lower Decks Doffs they are giving away for free in game are actually pretty good they all have unique benefits, which is nice.

It was a TNG episode (S7, Ep 15) but this Lower Decks and the doff related giveaway it pertains to is related to the new Satirical Comedy Animated show called “Lower Decks” that just started airing on CBS All Access in the states of which only the first episode has currently aired and is written by Mike Mahan who is know for Rick and Morty.

Free stuff is free. I’m a little confused who the target audience for “Lower Decks” is supposed to be. From what I can see in the trailers, it’s a series that pretty much dumps on all things Star Trek – the main characters are incompetent screw-ups, the bridge crew are selfish jerks, and it looks like the solution to most problems involves lots of swearing and gore. Honestly, it looks like the kind of series that would be designed by people who like “Rick and Morty” and don’t actually understand that Rick is the *bad guy.*

Hit the nail on the head. Very similar to the recent crappy Thundercats show. Either the creators hate the source material and want to make fun of it on purpose or do not know what their audience wants.

It’s by at least one of the Rick and Morty people.

It’s by someone that worked on S2 of R&M, following orders by Secret Hideout.

This isn’t accurate at all. Its a loving homage to all things trek.

I don’t think you have actually seen it because again that’s completely untrue. The trailers are way off. The show embraces trek and the creators clearly know trek by heaet

Reader

If you like it, then I suppose that’s all that matters. All I’ve seen are the trailers. And based on the trailers, I have no interest in seeing any more of it.

After claiming the free duty officers I don’t find them interesting enough to even really feel like making an effort to claim them on more than one character. They’re basically just four free green duty officers.

Yes because you have omniscient knowledge of everything he has or has not seen.

Spend anytime trying to discuss Star Trek online leads one to learn how to spot the haters and their arguments. I mean it’s one thing to say “I don’t like the art style” or I’m not a fan of comedies” But Saying the writers don’t know trek when it’s rather obvious that they do is a pretty good tell.

I’m surprised you have you called anyone who disagrees with you a ha…

Oops, lol you did.

HO HO HOHNO

The exact kind of statement made by someone who thinks they’re the arbiter of what “good Star Trek” is.
