Welcome aboard Starfleet. A new crew. A new voyage. A new, greater galaxy awaits. This is, Star Trek: Prodigy, the all-new animated kids’ series streaming exclusively on Paramount+ later this month.
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 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.
The Star Trek: Prodigy theme is composed by Academy Award winner Michael Giacchino, and the series music is by Nami Melumad (An American Pickle, Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond, Absentia).
“I am excited that I had the opportunity to write the main theme for Kevin and Dan’s latest project, and as always am thrilled to be a part of the Star Trek family,” said Michael Giacchino.
“I’m especially looking forward to everyone hearing the incredible work of composer Nami Melumad, who will take the reins of scoring the episodes. Not only is she extremely talented, she is a true Star Trek fan.”
The new cast voicing the six young aliens in the animated series includes Ella Purnell; Brett Gray; Jason Mantzoukas; Rylee Alazraqui; Dee Bradley Baker and Angus Imrie. They will join Kate Mulgrew, who is reprising her iconic role from Star Trek: Voyager as Captain Kathryn Janeway. Also joining the crew and making their debut as the series’ main villains, is John Noble and Jimmi Simpson.
Star Trek: Prodigy streaming exclusively on Paramount+ from October 29.
