Star Trek: Prodigy returns from a hiatus with its sixth episode, which arrives on Paramount+ this week. We have details, photos, plus a clip to get you started.
The new episode is titled “Kobayashi,” for Star Trek’s famed no-win scenario. It debuts on Paramount+ on Thursday, January 6. This is the start of a five-week run finishing out Prodigy’s first 10-episode arc from season one.
As Gwyn struggles to find her role aboard the U.S.S. Protostar, Dal tests his leadership skills in the newly discovered holodeck.
Clip: Dal boards the Enterprise
The latest episode of The Ready Room featured a clip from this week’s episode (at 24:39). The clip shows Dal discovering the Kobayashi Maru scenario on the holodeck, which recreates the bridge of the the USS Enterprise-D.
Discovery is back in February
Last week’s episode of Discovery was a mid-season finale. The series will return with episode 408 on February 10.
New episodes of Prodigy premiere on Thursdays on Paramount+ in the U.S. and on CTV Sci-Fi Channel in Canada, where it’s also available to stream on Crave. It is available on Paramount+ in Latin American, the Nordic Countries, and Australia, and Amazon Prime Video internationally on Fridays. It will debut later in 2022 in parts of Europe with the launch of the Paramouint+ Sky partnership.

Y’all need to come up with some new episode titles
You know Alex Kurtzman had to mediate a fight between the Discovery and Prodigy teams when they both decided to name an episode “Kobayashi Maru.” It’s slightly surprising that Disco won, since the long lead time on animation probably means the Prodigy script was written before the Discovery one.
In the grand scheme of things, similiar episode titles shouldn’t be an issue.
It’s clearly not. We all survived Discovery naming an episode “Anomaly”, despite that title having previously been used for an episode of Enterprise.
But it is a bit funny to have two episodes with such similar names within a few months of each other.
Yeah we survived it …but at what cost?
At what cost?
Sometimes the internet amazes me in the craziest ways. People losing their shit because two completely different shows just happen to have the same generic title in an episode. One guy went so far as accusing Discovery producers doing it as a way to ‘disrespect’ Enterprise (which the first episode of the season proved the complete opposite of that in fact).
I say this as an obsessive Star Trek fan myself, but some people have waaaay too much time on their hands.
We also survived Emissary/The Emissary and Muse/The Muse and Wink of an Eye/Blink of an Eye, and First Contact/First Contact, and Nemesis/Nemesis and a whole bunch of others.
With 800+ offerings over all the shows, it’s not unreasonable to see some repetition.
Although I miss the rather arch episode titles of Discovery’s first season.
Simplicity seems to be the vogue now.
A HUGE smile came over my face when I saw the E-D bridge again. It’s nice to see so many elements of classic Star Trek coming back! Can’t wait to see who they pick for the exercise.
If they’d have done the 1701 bridge I may very well have re-upped with Paramount +. It did get a smile out of me, though. :-)
Give it another 5 episodes Michael. 😏
Put it this way: if the word on SNW turns out to be good, I’ll have a lot of catching-up to do.
Cone & disk game! She’s trying to get them all addicted to the game!
I’m glad they will never let the people responsible for that travesty live it down… ;-)
I actually love that episode! I show it to 6th graders every year, and they love the blend of young romance and action. It also leads to a discussion on our addictions to technology!
That was my first thought!
I think I was the one who asked how long it would take for these kids to find the holodeck and apparently it took them 6 episodes. Oh well, it was inevitable. Wasn’t there also a Discovery episode a couple of weeks ago named after the Kobiyashi Maru? What is it with such a resurgence of interest for this test?
