Comic-Con@Home panel riffs on new CG ‘Star Trek’ kids’ series that premieres exclusively on the streamer in the U.S. this Fall.
Paramount+ debuted the official teaser trailer for the all-new animated kids’ series Star Trek: Prodigy. The teaser trailer was introduced by executive producers Kevin and Dan Hageman during the series’ Comic-Con@Home virtual panel and featured a first look at the Star Trek: Prodigy starship. Produced by the Nickelodeon Animation Studio and CBS Studios’ Eye Animation Studios, the series premieres on Paramount+ in the U.S. this Fall.
The Star Trek: Prodigy virtual panel was part of the overall “Star Trek” Universe panel, which kicked off Paramount+’s Comic-Con@Home “Peak” Animation programming block, showcasing the service’s upcoming animated series. The “Star Trek” Universe panel also included Season 2 of Star Trek: Lower Decks.
Moderated by Jerry O’Connell (Star Trek: Lower Decks), the Star Trek: Prodigy panel featured a conversation with voice cast members Kate Mulgrew (“Hologram Janeway”), Brett Gray (“Dal”), Ella Purnell (“Gwyn”), Angus Imrie (“Zero”), Rylee Alazraqui (“Rok-Tahk”), Dee Bradley Baker (“Murf”) and Jason Mantzoukas (“Jankom Pog”) alongside executive producers Kevin and Dan Hageman and director/co-executive producer Ben Hibon.
Developed by Emmy Award winners Kevin and Dan Hageman (Trollhunters and Ninjago) the CG-animated series Star Trek: Prodigy is the first “Star Trek” series aimed at younger audiences and will follow a motley crew of young aliens who must figure out how to work together while navigating a greater galaxy, in search 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 the course of their adventures together, they will each be introduced to Starfleet and the ideals it represents.

Alex Kurtzman, Heather Kadin, Katie Krentz, Rod Roddenberry, and Trevor Roth serve as executive producers alongside co-showrunners Kevin and Dan Hageman.
