Holograms All The Way Down

Not only does Connor Trinneer voice Trip Tucker for the first time since Star Trek: Enterprise went off the air in 2005, but he's joined by an all-star voice cast, including Jonathan Frakes as Commander Will Riker from Star Trek: The Next Generation, Armin Shimerman as Quark from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Noël Wells as Lt. D'Vana Tendi from Star Trek: Lower Decks, Angus Imrie as Zero from Star Trek: Prodigy, George Takei as Mr. Sulu from Star Trek: The Original Series, Doug Jones as Captain Saru from Star Trek: Discovery, Bruce Horak as Lt. Hemmer from Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, Ethan Phillips as Neelix from Star Trek: Voyager, and Bonnie Gordon as the computer voice.

Enterprise's T'Pol and Lt. Malcolm Reed, TNG's Counselor Deanna Troi, DS9's Garak, Lower Decks' Lt. Beckett Mariner and Lt. Brad Boimler, Prodigy's Gwyndala and Rojk-Tahk, and TOS' Lt. Uhura and Mr. Spock also appear in non-speaking roles. Amusingly, "Holograms All The Way Down" contains clever nods to Star Trek: Enterprise's controversial series finale, "These Are The Voyages...", TNG's "The Pegasus," and DS9's Dominion War classic, "In the Pale Moonlight." This Star Trek: very Short Treks episode also melds Star Trek: Lower Decks and Star Trek: Prodigy's animation styles for a proper celebration of the 50th anniversary of Star Trek: The Animated Series. Fans' reaction to Star Trek: very Short Treks has been mixed, at best, but Trip Tucker's Star Trek comeback is a lot of holographic fun squeezed into a breezy 2-minutes.
