Have you sold yet on Star Trek: Downstairs? This introduction to the show’s heroes (and the actors behind them) can help you decide.
The crew’s USS Cerritos far beyond the team of bridge workers. Meet the people in charge of dirty work and get no credit in this video from CBS All Access, which features short interviews with each member of the cast as well as a bit of staff objects they play. Meet Beckett Mariner played by Tawny Newsome, Brad Boimler played by Jack Quaid, Ensign Rutherford played by Eugene Cordero and Ensigh Tendi played by Noël Wells.

Star Trek: Downstairs aired every Thursday on CBS All Access, exclusive in USA.
