Star Trek: Prodigy’s First Trailer Goes Where No Kid Has Gone Before

Star Trek: Prodigy’s First Trailer Goes Where No Kid Has Gone Before

We’ve had glimpses and teases over the past year or so of what Prodigy wants to bring to the Star Trek franchise, but now, we’ve finally got a glimpse of it in motion: teasing the future of Star Trek can be found in some bright young things… with a little help from a familiar face.

Revealed at Paramount+’s Trek-tacular San Diego Comic-Con @ Home panel, providing animated insights into the debuts of Prodigy and the second season of Star Trek: Lower Decks, the teaser introduces us to the unlikely alien heroes of the show, who discover the abandoned experimental ship U.S.S. Protostar in the Delta quadrant and decide to take it as their own way to explore the stars. But when the ship’s training hologram, a replica of iconic Voyager captain Kathryn Janeway (voiced by the returning Kate Mulgrew) is activated, our young bridge crew find themselves being shaped by Starfleet’s ideals as they learn how to work together not to just survive owning their own starship, but using it to see the wonders — and dangers — among the stars.

Alongside Mulgrew’s return as one of Trek’s finest captains (albeit in holographic form), Star Trek: Prodigy stars Brett Grey, Ella Purnell, Rylee Alazraqui, Dee Bradley Baker, Angus Imrie, and Jason Mantzoukas as the alien teen protagonists: Dal (of an unknown species), Gwyn (a new-to-Trek Vau N’Kat), Rok-Tahk (a Brikar from the TNG novels), Murf (an unknown blob-like being), Zero (a non-binary Medusan), and Jankom Pog (a Tellarite), respectively. The series, originally set to debut on Nickelodeon, will now premiere later this year on Paramount+, before heading to the children’s network after Prodigy concludes on streaming.

Stay tuned for an Australian release date and platform.
