Star Trek: Lower Decks U.S.S. Cerritos Revealed!

Post by Mike DiCenso » Mon Jul 06, 2020 6:23 pm

This is our first look at the ship from the upcoming animated series, the California-class USS Cerritos.

Interesting with the character art style for the series, the ship and its interiors are surprisingly given some attention to and it is fairly consistent with the "kitbash" designs seen throughout Next Generation as it definitely owes a lot in appearance to the Galaxy and Nebula-class starship components.

Although still early, let the speculations begin!

I can also see some influence from the Oberth-class as well, what with the lack of a neck, and the pylons supporting the saucer section.

Funnily, my first thought was Centaur-class.

And the trailer has been released with more views of the ship.

I don't know. Am I the only one who feels like this seems more like a parody show we'd see on "Family Guy" than the latest incarnation of Trek? Shrug. Maybe I'm just old.

Ship design was nice, I thought. Through I couldn't help but feeling a little clash between than and the crude "Rick and Morty" art design of the characters. Again through maybe that's just me.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who saw Oberth inspiration. I am also happy to see the TNG era kitbash style for what is supposed to be a second line ship.

Intrigued, prepared to give it a chance when it appears on UK shores, whenever that will be.

Just stepping into the moderator mode here just to remind everyone that commenting on the show itself is a separate topic and to keep this to comments and speculation on the ship.

Thank you.

I'm curious as to how many California-class ships were made. Is their general purpose exploration?

Also, I'm not seeing any obvious torpedo launchers.
