Paramount+ shared a first-look clip featuring Hologram Kathryn Janeway from its upcoming animated Star Trek kids series during today's Star Trek: Prodigy panel at New York Comic-Con. The new clip revealed the beloved Star Trek: Voyager character, voiced by Kate Mulgrew in the new series. The reveal came after Paramount+ screened the show's premiere episode during the following cast and producer panel. You can see the clip below. The event also brought news that another Star Trek: Voyager actor, Richard Beltran, is returning to voice his character, Chakotay, in Star Trek: Prodigy. The show also announced three more cast members in Daveed Diggs, Jameela Jamil, and Jason Alexander.
Star Trek: Prodigy will premiere on Thursday, October 28th, with a one-hour episode available exclusively on Paramount+ in the United States. The series will also stream on Paramount+ in international territories, including Latin America, the Nordics, and Australia.
In the one-hour series premiere, "Lost & Found," a group of lawless teens, exiled on a mining colony outside Federation space, discover a derelict Starfleet ship. Dal must gather an unlikely crew for their newfound ship if they are going to escape Tars Lamora, but the Diviner and his daughter Gwyn have other plans.
The Star Trek: Prodigy New York Comic Con panel included a conversation with series voice cast members Kate Mulgrew (Hologram Kathryn Janeway), Brett Gray (Dal), Rylee Alazraqui (Rok-Tahk), Dee Bradley Baker (Murf), executive producers Kevin and Dan Hageman, director/co-executive producer Ben Hibon, and Ramsey Naito, President, Animation & Development, Paramount Animation, and Nickelodeon Animation. Dawnn Lewis moderated the panel, who voices Captain Carol Freeman on Paramount+'s Star Trek: Lower Decks.
Emmy Award winners Kevin and Dan Hageman (Trollhunters and Ninjago) developed the CG-animated series Star Trek: Prodigy, the first Star Trek series aimed at younger audiences. It follows a motley crew of young aliens who must figure out how to work together while navigating a greater galaxy, searching for a better future. These six young outcasts know nothing about the ship they have commandeered – a first in the history of the Star Trek franchise – but over their adventures together, they will each be introduced to Starfleet and the ideals it represents.
CBS' Eye Animation Productions and Nickelodeon Animation studio produce Star Trek: Prodigy. ViacomCBS Global Distribution Group distributes the series.
