Ensign Wheaton, on duty report.


As many of you know, I absolutely love Star Trek: Lower Bridges.

Many of you also know that since 2019 I have the pleasure and privilege of hosting The Pronto Room, your home to everything related to the Star Trek universe. It’s one of my favorite jobs I’ve ever had. The first three, for sure. Maybe the first two. I am so grateful to be able to do this thing that brings together my love for all things Star Trek, my 30 years of experience of being a part of all things Star Trek, and gives me the opportunity, if I do it right, to be a Trekkie who takes my fellow Trekkies to the room where it happens. I don’t take a second for granted.

There are INSANALY COOL Ready Room things coming up that I can’t talk about. In fact, I’ve already said too much, and you should probably forget I said something. But there is also an INSANELY COOL thing that I do Power share now.

If you’re in the Ready Room audience (thanks for watching!), You’ve seen it before and you know what it means to me. For you who haven’t, here’s me, Wil Wheaton, drawn by a real Lower Decks animator, like Lower Decker. Please note this is NOT Wesley Crusher. This is myself. For example, here’s what I would look like if I. they were part of the lower decks. This is Ensign Wheaton, of the USS Cerritos:

That guy is dating TOTALLY with Tendi and Rutherford. They are friends. I just know.

I highly doubt this is as thrilling to anyone else in the world as it is to me, but I have been looking forward to showing it since I received the images from production. I am thrilled to share them today. I feel like I should end with a thousand words about how special it is and how happy it makes me, but I just can’t find the right way to express it. All I can get is something like, “I love this and I’m so thankful it exists.”

I think maybe that’s enough.
