Star Trek: Lower Decks received a trailer and character posters for its third season during the Star Trek Universe panel at San Diego Comic-Con and they tease a visit to Deep Space 9.
The trailer begins by showing the aftermath of Captain Freeman being put on trail following the Season 2 finale and shows some of the adventures the crew will go on when the series returns to Paramount+ on August 25, 2022.

While Deep Space 9 was only shown for a moment at the end, the trailer also features Beckett Mariner, D’Vana Tendi, Bradward Boimler, and Samanthan Rutherford at Sisko’s Creole Kitchen, the New Orleans restaurant that was owned by Captain Benjamin Sisko’s father Joseph.
Star Trek: Lower Decks creator and showrunner Mike McMahan stopped by the Star Trek Universe panel to give fans a few more details on this trip to Depp Space 9.
“Yes, on Lower Decks, we circle Deep Space 9 and we count the pylons,” McMahan said. “Then we go into Deep Space 9 and enjoy the Kardassian architecture. And you might see some friendly faces in there. It feels to me like one last walk around Deep Space 9. I can’t wait for you guys to see it.”
These four crew members were also featured in the character posters revealed during the panel, and you can check them out in the gallery below.
