Today at the Star Trek: Prodigy panel at New York Comic Con, Paramount+ announced new recurring cast members and premiered a clip from the show of Hologram Janeway meeting the new Protostar crew.
Big names in recurring roles
Robert Beltran first announced he’d be appearing on Prodigy at STLV in August. He’ll be reprising his role of Chakotay, who’s now Captain Chakotay; whether or not he’ll be a hologram is yet to be announced. Daveed Diggs will play an Andorian character called Commander Tysess. Diggs is best known for his role in Hamilton, and has voiced characters on Bob’s Burgers, Central Park, and Star Wars Resistance. Jameela Jamil from The Good Place (and whose Good Place co-star Jason Mantzoukas plays Jankom Pog) will be voicing Ensign Asencia, a Trill. And Jason Alexander, a longtime Star Trek fan who guest starred on Voyager, will provide the voice for Doctor Noum, a Tellarite.
