See ‘Star Trek: Prodigy’ Visit The Strangely Familiar In First Images From “All The World’s A Stage”

The second half of the 20-episode first season of Star Trek: Prodigy continues this week with the thirteenth episode. We have details and a lot of photos. [MINOR SPOILERS]

Prodigy does a “love letter to TOS”

Episode 13 of Prodigy is called “All the World’s a Stage.” The episode is written by co-executive producer Aaron J. Waltke who wrote the Trek lore-filled episode “Kobayashi.” At Mission Chicago earlier this year series creator Dan Hageman offered a preview of this episode:

I think we can spoil an upcoming episode in the next ten episodes, written by Aaron Waltke, who is our resident Trek fan. He wrote “Kobayashi” as well. He wrote a love letter to TOS in the next ten.

“All the World’s a Stage” was directed by Andrew Schmidt and it debuts on Paramount+ on Thursday, November 10.

Synopsis:

The crew answers a distress call to find a colony trapped in Starfleet’s past.

This should be an interesting episode about Starfleet’s past.

Again, count me intrigued.

And not just because all the 23rd century-ish uniforms are green, of all things.

Looking at these images, I have so many questions!

Does that one guy look like the Diviner?

In the Green shirt? Kinda sorta yeah.

Janeway is now obviously a MAIN CHARACTER in this series instead of a supporting one.

Cool, Mulgrew has her follow-on Trek series now, so they don’t have to worry about giving her ANOTHER new series. It’s covered…check!

Hopefully Kurtzman is resisting the awkward public “campaign” from Mulgrew on this, and instead is having some preliminary discussions with Visitor, Siddig and Lofton about a DS9-derived new series.

She’s always been a main character. I remember the Hageman brothers said, in a past interview, they had to have Mulgrews participation or they wouldnt have done the show. That’s how crucial she is.

OK, that works too. I’m just talking about the reality of how big the Janeway character’s role was early on compared to now…it’s been increasing over time and her % screen time on eps was more at the supporting level early on as compared to now.

Janeway is a very popular character. Her, Seven and Uhura are the most well known female characters in Trek., I don’t think that’s a controversial statement. The audience wants to see more of her not less, especially an audience that are now parents which are introducing their kids to her for the first time. Janeway is big deal to a lot of folks.

Your leaving out Kira. I’d put her right up there with Seven and Janeway. Uhura is in a class by herself given that was a TV pioneering role.

Kurtzman, who signed off on making Janeway/Mulgrew a pivotal part of “Prodigy,” is likely more than okay with the idea of having her be a pivotal part of a third Trek series. So are the many “Voyager” fans who’ve been wanting to see her back.

Kurtzman seems to be very fond of Mulgrew too, which helps. I’m sure he’ll try hard to make a live action Janeway show a possibility.

Agree! 👍

I think they put her on this show as a feeler and to get her back in a live action show one day!

I hope if it happens it has to be one minor difference from the Picard show…this time it actually has to be good! 😆

Give me as much Janeway as you can! And give us a reunion with Seven Kurtzman!!!

I think he’s just being nice in public because Mulgrew has basically been campaigning for the live action series. Kurtzman wants to avoid the bad press of Takei’s Captain Sulu thing, so he publicly needs to say all the right things. But I really doubt he’s going to pull the trigger on that given Mulgrew already has her follow-on series in Prodigy.

My opinion. IDIC

I wonder when Jellico and Okona is going to show up? I’m looking forward to that, I suppose in the latter half of the episodes would be my guess.

I find it quite amusing Prodigy, Lower Decks and Picard keep with the proper, classic visual aesthetic. Yet Discovery and Strange New Worlds uses a completely different visual style. Everything from ships, sets, costumes, alien races etc. yet still say they are part of the same continuity?

A nightmare for Memory Alpha and to be honest, my OCD!

How so?

Also, Prodigy, Lower Decks, and Picard are all TNG-era, while Discovery and SNW are TOS era.

Well thankfully not anymore for Discovery. 🙄

This episode looks and sounds great! It’s going to be fun how they make it a tribute to TOS! Really excited about it! 🖖

What I saw til now – very well written and beautifully staged. Big Like.

strange thing: saw prodigy for free in german tv the last couple of days. already dubbed for german television. wow. it’s so good. nice to have it for free … this soon!!

Really enjoyed this one. Definitely one of my favorites.
