Paramount+ Shares ‘Star Trek: Prodigy’ Teaser and Images

At New York Comic Con EPs Kevin and Dan Hageman took the stage with cast members Kate Mulgrew, Brett Gray, and Jameela Jamil, revealing a teaser, images, and a new crew member; mid-season return with new episodes set for October 27.

During the Star Trek universe panel last weekend at New York Comic Con, Paramount+ debuted the official mid-season trailer for Season 1 of its original animated kids’ series, Star Trek: Prodigy. The trailer, which was introduced by executive producers Kevin and Dan Hageman, was revealed during the panel along with new images from the upcoming episodes.

Also announced, Ronny Cox joins the Season 1 cast, reprising his Star Trek: The Next Generation role as Admiral Edward Jellico, a promotion from his original Star Trek character, Captain Jellico.

Star Trek: Prodigy’s mid-season return is set for October 27 on Paramount+ in the U.S., and on October 28 in Latin America, Australia, Italy, and the U.K. Following the series’ return, new episodes of the 10-episode-long second half will be available to stream weekly on Thursdays. The series will air later in the year in South Korea, Germany, Italy, France, Austria, and Switzerland.

The Star Trek: Prodigy portion of the Star Trek universe panel featured a conversation with series voice cast members Kate Mulgrew, Brett Gray, and Jameela Jamil, as well as executive producers Kevin and Dan Hageman, Alex Kurtzman and Rod Roddenberry, and director and executive producer Ben Hibon. Josh Horowitz, MTV host and host of the Happy Sad Confused podcast, served as the panel moderator.

Developed by Emmy Award winners Kevin and Dan Hageman (Trollhunters and Ninjago), the CG-animated series is the first Star Trek series aimed at younger audiences and follows a motley crew of young aliens who must figure out how to work together while navigating a greater galaxy, in search of 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.

In the second half of Season 1, the hopeful crew makes its way toward Starfleet, but their dreams are threatened when they discover the U.S.S. Protostar harbors a weapon designed to tear the United Federation of Planets apart. To make matters worse, the U.S.S. Dauntless is on a manhunt for the Protostar as the real Vice Admiral Janeway is eager to uncover what happened to her missing former First Officer Chakotay. With these two ships on a collision course and destruction on the horizon, the fate of the Alpha Quadrant hangs in the balance.
