Star Trek: Prodigy‘s debut arrives in less than a month, and there is a brand new video promo to help prep you. We also have news on the Australian premiere and some more fun stuff.
A motley crew
ViacomCBS has started running a new commercial for Star Trek: Prodigy aimed at younger audiences on Nickelodeon (including Nick At Night). The animated kids series will actually air on Nickelodeon after the first season wraps up on Paramount+.
A longer version of this new promo was released today on Twitter promo (also Instagram) featuring new footage from Prodigy giving us a better sense of who does what on the USS Protostar.

Holo Janeway still needs coffee
Yesterday was National Coffee Day leading TrekMovie to pose the Twitter question of if the Emergency Training Hologram version of Janeway on Prodigy had the same close relationship with the caffeinated beverage. And one of the writers chimed in. Aaron J. Waltke let us know how integral it is to her programming.
Coffee drinking is one of Hologram Janeway’s personality subroutines — if removed, her entire holomatrix will destabilize. Turns out it’s essential to keeping her memory engrams intact. #StarTrek #StarTrekProdigy #NationalCoffeeDay https://t.co/ZRb9BIBVfZ pic.twitter.com/8GaLCIfUw2

The Diviner isn’t so scary
Last month actor John Noble was revealed to be playing The Diviner, the primary villain for Prodigy. Earlier this week co-star Rylee Alazraqui (Rok-Tahk) shared a cute photo with the veteran actor, noting “The Diviner isn’t SO bad.”
