“Star Trek: Prodigy” Will Introduce Star Trek to the Younger Generation

Star Trek Prodigy

Comic-Con may not be happening as normal, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t getting our usual flood of announcements. Like Star Trek: Prodigy, the title and logo of which were revealed at yesterday’s Star Trek Universe panel.

The star-studded Star Trek Universe panel is usually a Hall H event, so getting into it is difficult unless you want to devote many hours to waiting in line. So one plus of SDCC going virtual is that you get to see the panel without wasting your entire day! With so much going on in one panel, it’s no surprise that there will be announcements – like the all-new animated series Star Trek: Prodigy.

Star Trek: Prodigy, a joint venture of Nickelodeon and CBS Television Studios, “follows a group of lawless teens who discover a derelict Starfleet ship and use it to search for adventure, meaning and salvation.” Developed by Emmy Award winners Kevin and Dan Hageman (Trollhunters, Ninjago) and overseen by Nickelodeon’s Ramsey Naito, the series expands the ever-growing Star Trek universe and is the first series aimed for younger audiences.

The CG-animated series will debut exclusively on Nickelodeon in 2021, hopefully introducing a brand new generation of fans to the wonders of the Star Trek universe.

The series will be from CBS’ Eye Animation Productions, CBS Television Studios’ new animation arm; Secret Hideout; and Roddenberry Entertainment. Alex Kurtzman, Heather Kadin, Katie Krentz, Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth will serve as executive producers alongside Kevin and Dan Hageman. Aaron Baiers will serve as a co-executive producer.

ViacomCBS has worked hard to continually expand the Star Trek universe, and CBS All Access offerings include Star Trek: Discovery, Star Trek: Picard, the animated series Star Trek: Lower Decks, the upcoming series Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, and a still in development Section 31-based series featuring Michelle Yeoh.
