The second season of the animated series ended on a cliffhanger after Captain Carol Freeman got arrested for a war crime she did not commit.

The show’s creator, Mike McMahan had revealed at the Comic-Con that the Cerritos crew would be visiting ‘Deep Space Nine’ in the new season. Now it has also appeared in the trailer as crew members are seen dining at the Sisko’s in New Orleans – a popular dining spot for characters from the Starfleet Academy in ‘Deep Space Nine’.

The New Season was Announced in 2021

Paramount had officially ordered the third season of the show while announcing the premiere date for the second season in April 2021. The writing started in May and the script was locked by mid-September.

Creator McMahan had stated that the third season will continue Captain Freeman’s trial for supposedly destroying the Pakled homeworld. The third season will also explore Beckett Mariner’s new relationship with Jennifer Sh’reyan, however the main focus will still be on her friendships and her relationship with her mother, Captain Freeman.

McMahan also stated that the third season will be the first step towards moving the lower deckers up in rank. He said each character will take a different path to eventually become the person he wants them to become by the end of the show.
