What Is Star Trek: Prodigy About?
Star Trek: Prodigy is an animated television series created by Kevin and Dan Hageman for Nickelodeon. It is part of the Star Trek franchise and will be launched in 2021 as part of executive producer Alex Kurtzman's expansion of the franchise.
A first-look image of the STAR TREK: PRODIGY bridge crew was also released. In PRODIGY, six young outcasts know nothing about the ship they have commandeered - a first in the history of the Star Trek Franchise, but over the course of their adventures together, they will each be introduced to Starfleet and the ideals it represents.
With the addition of STAR TREK: PRODIGY, the entire Star Trek Universe will now be available to stream on Paramount+. The Star Trek Universe on Paramount+ will also include current and upcoming seasons of the original series STAR TREK: DISCOVERY, STAR TREK: PICARD, the animated series STAR TREK: LOWER DECKS and the upcoming STAR TREK: STRANGE NEW WORLDS. The Star Trek Universe on Paramount+ also includes all 726 episodes from the six classic Star Trek series and a selection of Star Trek films.
"In three years, we've expanded the Star Trek Universe to new heights, creating five original series - each with its own unique storytelling and distinct cinematic feel," said Alex Kurtzman, Executive Producer Star Trek Universe. "We're so excited to partner with Dan and Kevin Hageman and the team at Nickelodeon for STAR TREK: PRODIGY as we bring Trek to a new generation of younger fans with an animated series as rich in character and scope as our live action shows. I'm thrilled audiences of all ages now have instant access to the full Trek library, classic and new original series, on our new home at Paramount+."
"When STAR TREK: DISCOVERY first premiered, we knew we had the beginning of something special," said Julie McNamara, Executive Vice President and Head of Programming, Paramount+. "Over three years later, we are thrilled that Paramount+ will serve as the streaming home of the Star Trek Universe, with an unparalleled existing and expanding library of Trek content. The upcoming addition of STAR TREK: PRODIGY to Paramount+ means subscribers now have a Trek series for every member of the family - including kids. We are excited to bring this next chapter to a new generation of Trek fans alongside the creative masterminds behind Secret Hideout and Nickelodeon, as well as the talented Kevin and Dan Hageman."
"Debuting Prodigy on Paramount+ alongside the complete Star Trek universe points to our strategy of growing Nickelodeon's reach by expanding our top franchises and diving deeper into their worlds, and their characters and stories," said Ramsey Naito, President, Nickelodeon Animation. "And on top of having great characters and absolutely gorgeous animation, PRODIGY shows how the ViacomCBS brands can come together to make great, compelling content that appeals to both new audiences and long-time super fans. We're incredibly proud of this series and we're looking forward to building its audience across the Paramount+ and Nickelodeon platforms."
Paramount+ introduced the stellar lineup of voice talent behind the six young alien starship crew members featured in its upcoming all-new animated kids' series STAR TREK: PRODIGY. First look images of the series were also revealed.
The new voice cast and their STAR TREK: PRODIGY characters are as follows:
· Rylee Alazraqui ("Doug Unplugs," "Home Economics") as "Rok-Tahk," a Brikar and an unusually bright eight-year-old girl. Rok is a bit shy, but not when it comes to her love for animals.
· Brett Gray ("On My Block," "When They See Us") as "Dal," 17 years old and an unknown species, he fancies himself a maverick, who even in the toughest times, holds strong onto his unwavering hope.
· Angus Imrie ("The Crown," "Emma") as "Zero," who is a Medusan: a noncorporeal, genderless, energy-based lifeform. Since others would go mad at the sight of their true self, Zero wears a containment suit they made themselves to protect others.
· Jason Mantzoukas ("Infinite," "Big Mouth") as "Jankom Pog," a 16-year-old Tellarite. Tellarites are known to relish an argument, and Jankom is no different. Regardless of opinion, he will always play 'devil's advocate' for the sake of hearing all sides.
· Ella Purnell ("Army of the Dead," "Sweetbitter") as "Gwyn," a 17-year-old Vau N'Akat who was raised on her father's bleak mining planet and grew up dreaming to explore the stars.
· Dee Bradley Baker ("SpongeBob SquarePants," "Dora the Explorer") as "Murf," whose age and species is unknown but who is an endearing, indestructible blob with curiously good timing and an insatiable appetite for ship parts.
This new voice cast joins actress Kate Mulgrew ("Star Trek: Voyager") who is reprising her iconic role as Kathryn Janeway. In the series, Janeway will serve as the STAR TREK: PRODIGY starship's built-in emergency training hologram.
Produced by the Nickelodeon Animation Studio and CBS Studios' Eye Animation Productions, STAR TREK: PRODIGY will premiere on Paramount+ in the U.S. this Fall.
