This week the mid-season finale for Star Trek: Prodigy arrives on Paramount+. We have details, photos, and some videos.
“A Moral Star, Part 2”
The first 10-episode arc of Prodigy wraps up this week with the culmination of the two-part episode “A Moral Star.” Like part one, it is written by the entire season one writers’ room (Kevin & Dan Hageman, Julie Benson, Shawna Benson, Lisa Schultz Boyd, Nikhil S. Jayaram, Diandra Pendleton-Thompson, Chad Quandt, and Aaron J. Waltke), and directed by executive producer and creative lead Ben Hibon. “A Moral Star, Part 2” debuts on Paramount+ on Thursday, February 3. Season one of Prodigy will return with ten more episodes in late 2022.
When the plan goes awry, the crew must improvise. Meanwhile, Gwyn discovers a dark truth that will forever jeopardize their quest toward salvation.
Gwyn’s alien world in Prodigy TV spot
Paramount+ is running a 10-second television commercial for Prodigy which includes shots from previous episodes along with some new footage that appears to be from the mid-season finale.
The promo includes a couple of shots of Gwyn (in her new Starfleet uniform) on an unknown planet with a city in the distance. This could possibly be the Vau N’Akat homeworld of Solum. This may be where she learns that “dark truth” mentioned in the synopsis.
Bonus video: Dee Bradley Baker on CBS News
Last week Prodigy got some promotion on the CBS News streaming service, with voice actor Dee Bradley Baker joining in to talk about season one and the mysteries of Murf.
Discovery is back next week
Star Trek: Discovery returns from hiatus on February 10 with the eighth episode of season four.
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. It will debut later in 2022 in parts of Europe with the launch of the Paramouint+ Sky partnership.
