Developed by Emmy Award winner Mike McMahan (“Rick and Morty,” “Solar Opposites”), season two of STAR TREK: LOWER DECKS is bigger, funnier and Star Trekkier than ever before. Fans can expect strange new (and familiar) aliens to challenge the crews of the U.S.S. Cerritos and the U.S.S. Titan. For Mariner, Tendi, Rutherford and Boimler, the animated adventure is just beginning.

In addition to the Lower Deckers, the Starfleet characters that comprise the U.S.S. Cerritos’ bridge crew include Captain Carol Freeman, voiced by Dawnn Lewis, Commander Jack Ransom, voiced by Jerry O’Connell, and Doctor T’Ana, voiced by Gillian Vigman.

Says Westlake: “When I sat down with showrunner Mike McMahan to watch the first episode of Star Trek: Lower Decks, I was immediately struck by a sense of warmth and friendship from his characters. The crew of the USS Cerritos were so well written, voiced with heart by an incredible cast, and beautifully animated. I simply loved spending time with them, and I instantly wanted to follow them on any (mis)adventures they got up to. Having grown up watching Star Trek (it was the one show my sister and I could always agree on), what a surreal experience it was getting to contribute music to such a wonderful universe.”


Chris Westlake is an American composer of electronic and orchestral music. His work can be heard across many genres. From the melodic and orchestral sci-fi of Star Trek: Lower Decks, to foreboding and emotional music for the Emmy-nominated Castle Rock.
His score for Castle Rock was described by The New York Times as “extra-lush. It’s another way this episode feels like a movie.” Rolling Stone described his music as “a tapestry of ominous noise – it’s communicating something about how the characters feel, rather than telling us what to feel.”
His early musical life was fed by a love of all things strummed. He spent his teenage years studying classical and flamenco guitar with Celino Romero and Sharon Isbin, head of the guitar department at Juilliard. He went on to study at USC’s Thornton School of Music, where he was asked by a friend to score a short film.
He is currently writing music for the third season of the animated hit series, Solar Opposites (Mike McMahan, Justin Roiland).
