Star Trek Day rolls on with a spotlight on Star Trek: Lower Decks, offering a glimpse at the episode arriving October 13: “Crisis Point 2: Paradoxus.” It’s a follow-up to “Crisis Point,” a season one standout that paid delightful tribute to Star Trek movies. Can the sequel live up, under what looks like Boimler’s direction rather than Mariner’s this time?

The clip suggests... yes, Boimler is gonna holodeck himself into some extremely triumphant movie-fantasy heroics. Check it out!
