Star Trek: Prodigy is an American animated television series created by Kevin and Dan Hageman for the streaming service Paramount+ and the cable channel Nickelodeon. The series launched as part of executive producer Alex Kurtzman's expanded Star Trek Universe. Prodigy follows a group of teenagers who use an abandoned starship to search for adventure.
Kate Mulgrew reprises her role as Kathryn Janeway from Star Trek: Voyager. Rylee Alazraqui, Brett Gray, Angus Imrie, Jason Mantzoukas, Ella Purnell, Dee Bradley Baker, John Noble, and Jimmi Simpson also star. Kurtzman first mentioned the series in January 2019, and it was confirmed a month later. The Hageman brothers were set as creators and showrunners. Nickelodeon ordered two seasons of Prodigy that April. The series uses computer animation, differing from previous Star Trek animation. The series is intended for younger audiences than the rest of the franchise. Ben Hibon was announced as director in August 2020, and it was revealed in February 2021 that the series would debut on Paramount+ before airing on Nickelodeon.
Star Trek: Prodigy premiered on October 28, 2021, on Paramount+ with the first 10-episode season. It will then air on Nickelodeon before the second season is released on Paramount+.
