‘Star Trek: Prodigy’ is a new American animated television series created to air on Paramount + and for the Nickelodeon channel. The series is slated to launch in 2021 as part of the expanded âStar Trek Universeâ.
‘Star Trek: Prodigy’ features a group of curious teenagers who use an abandoned ship, in search of adventure. The series makes full and optimal use of computer animation, slightly different from the previous ‘Star Trek’. That said, the series more or less targets the younger generation. The premise of the series guides us through the year 2383, after the events of “Star Trek: Voyager”, when young aliens from the Delta Quadrant find an abandoned Starfleet ship, called the USS Protostar. While taking control of the ship, the teens must learn to work as a team, as they make their way to the Alpha Quadrant.
