UPDATE: More from Mulgrew
Reader Josh Metcalf has highlighted his one-on-one chat with Mulgrew, where she goes into a bit more detail on Prodigy, saying…
Matcalf: I’m looking forward to hearing your voice more on Prodigy.
Mulgrew: I’m really enjoying recording that cartoon. It’s very sophisticated. It’s feature-film quality. The Hageman brothers [co-creators] are geniuses. And [executive producer] Alex Kurtzman is a great, great leader. A visionary. I think it’s time for the little ones to come into the fold.

Prodigy is coming to Nickelodeon in 2021
CBS first announced the CG-animated Trek series in April 2019, with Nickelodeon giving the show a two-season order. It is being developed by Emmy winners Kevin and Dan Hageman (Trollhunters). The series follows a group of lawless teens who discover a derelict Starfleet ship and use it to search for adventure, meaning, and salvation.
The title for the Trek series targeting a new generation of fans was revealed during virtual Comic-Con last summer, which also confirmed a 2021 release for the first season. Mulgrew’s inclusion on the show was revealed last October during the virtual NYCC.
