The third season of the American animated television series Star Trek: Lower Decks follows the various missions and adventures of the "lower deckers" (low-ranking officers with menial jobs) on the USS Cerritos, one of Starfleet's least important starships. The season is produced by CBS Eye Animation Productions in association with Secret Hideout, Important Science, Roddenberry Entertainment, and animation studio Titmouse, with Mike McMahan serving as showrunner and Barry J. Kelly as supervising director.

Tawny Newsome, Jack Quaid, Noël Wells, and Eugene Cordero voice the lower decks crew members of the Cerritos, with Dawnn Lewis, Jerry O'Connell, Fred Tatasciore, and Gillian Vigman providing voices for the ship's senior officers. A third season of Lower Decks was ordered in April 2021, and voice recording began by June. Writing for the season was completed that September, and picked up from the cliffhanger ending of the second season. Voice recording was mostly completed by June 2022. The season features many connections and references to past Star Trek series such as Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, including several actors returning as guest stars.
McMahan said the third season would take the first steps towards moving the lower deckers up in rank, showing each take a different path to become the people that he planned for them to be at the end of the series. These new personal missions for the main characters are introduced across the first few episodes of the season, and McMahan said they would "change the playing field of the entire show". He said Brad Boimler's lessons in the first two seasons would lead him down a new path, while D'Vana Tendi starts a new job in the sciences division after McMahan felt there was no room for her to grow in the medical division. For Sam Rutherford, the secrets behind his cyborg implant carry over from the second season as an ongoing story that was influenced by the "secret past" of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine character Julian Bashir. McMahan noted that augmentation is "a dirty word in Star Trek. It should always have made somebody lift an eyebrow that Rutherford had that" implant, and the third season would explain why in an "interesting, fun Lower Decks way". The friendships between the main characters are further explored in "Room for Growth", which was inspired by the "room lottery" at McMahan's college. He wanted the episode to be "about the journey and not the destination" similar to the 1986 coming-of-age film Stand by Me, and based several of the episode's locations on scenes from that film. 041b061a72
