The half-hour animated series, from “Rick & Morty” head writer Mike McMahan, will focus on the support crew serving on one of Starfleet’s least important ships and will be the first production by CBS Eye Animation Productions, CBS Television Studios’ new animation arm.

The series will take place in the year 2380, right after the events of “Nemesis,” show creator Mike McMahan told the crowd at Comic-Con.
