Background information[]

  • On 18 January 2022, the fourth season was announced.
  • On 22 July 2022, at San Diego Comic Con's Star Trek panel, Paramount+ announced that the fourth season would premiere with two episodes on Thursday, September 7.
  • Continuing a trend that was carried over from the previous season, the official season four poster art was a take on one of the official ones for Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home.
  • In February 2023, it was announced that Prime Video was to lose its exclusive Lower Decks streaming rights outside the Americas and that the show would thereafter become internationally available on Paramount+ only as an exclusive. [1] Prime Video scheduled the series to leave the service in countries such as Germany in the month before the debut of season 4. [2] The fourth season of Lower Decks was therefore not added to Prime Video's catalog, although the first three seasons had yet to be removed at that point in time. A start was made however, when the third season became by January 2024 no longer available for streaming either in multiple foreign markets of the service.
  • With the removal of Lower Decks and Picard from Canadian CraveTV on 1 August 2023, that streaming service was left without Star Trek entirely. [3] [4]
  • The season is available to watch on Paramount+ where available and on the closely affiliated SkyShowtime streaming service elsewhere.
  • On 24 August 2023, it was announced that four episodes of the season would be played in theaters in Columbus, Dallas, Denver, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Diego, St. Louis, Washington DC, Vancouver, Calgary, and London, England. [5]


The 2024 inaugural Gold Collision Award was a tied win Lower Decks had to share with the Netflix Captain Fall animated series. [6] [7]
