Star Trek: Lower Decks Preview: Paying a Price for Romulan Whiskey

With Star Trek: Lower Decks beaming into our homes for Comic-Con@Home on Thursday as part of the virtual San Diego Comic-Con, CBS All Access and series showrunner Mike McMahan knew full well that he would need to bring more than just the cast. So with the adult animated comedy series set to premiere on August 6, we're getting a look at Jack Quaid's Ensign Brad Boimler. Unfortunately for Boimler, he's about to learn that his dreams/delusions of grandeur don't mix well with Romulan whiskey and really, really sharp objects. Images from the preview are throughout the post, and you can check out the clip for yourselves at the end of the article:
