In what is, to my mind, the strongest episode of Star Trek: Lower Decks yet, Boimler, Mariner, Rutherford, and Tendi must testify to events they don’t actually know anything about — even though they were there for them. As an added bonus, John deLancie returns as the voice of Q! My take on “Veritas.”
After all that, though, the foursome still don’t know what the actual mission is, which Clar finds impossible to credit. Starfleet officers plan for every contingency and always tell the truth, and Freeman’s crew should know everything that goes on. This leads Boimler to give an impassioned, hilarious speech about how they’re just the lower-decks ensigns, they don’t know everything, and heck, the senior officers don’t always know everything either! They’re all hugely busy and playing it by ear half the time.
