Star Trek: Prodigy Teaser Introduces a New Crew of Misfits

The next animated Star Trek series is about to take flight. During today’s Comic-Con@Home festivities, fans were treated to the first round of footage from Star Trek: Prodigy. You can check it out for yourself below.

Executive producers Kevin and Dan Hageman were on hand to introduce Prodigy’s new teaser, which clocks in at less than a minute. Regardless, it does a respectable job of setting up the overall tone for the series. Set in the Delta Quadrant several years after the events of Star Trek: Voyager, the show centers on a group of teenage aliens who dream of a life beyond their humdrum mining planet. Luckily, their saving grace arrives when they stumble upon an abandoned starship, which they use to explore the cosmos.

Prodigy marks the first Star Trek series to feature a cast made up entirely of non-human characters. Most of these characters appear in the show’s new trailer, including Dal, Gwynn, Rok-Tahk, Zero, Jankom Pog, and Murf. Contrary to what fans may have expected, “Prodigy” isn’t the name of the ship the teens discover. Instead, it’s called the USS Protostar, with a designation of NX-76884. As diehard Star Trek fans probably know, “NX” indicates an experimental vessel rather than a fully commissioned starship.

Additionally, Kate Mulgrew will reprise her Voyager role as Captain Kathryn Janeway, who appears as the Protostar’s onboard hologram. Janeway doesn’t physically show up in the trailer, but we can hear her voice near the very end.

Star Trek: Prodigy will debut on Paramount+ later this year.
