The first season of Star Trek: Prodigy wraps up this week with the second part of the two-part finale. We have details and images.
“Supernova, Part 2”
Episode 20 of Prodigy is called “Supernova, Part 2” and was written by co-creators Kevin and Dan Hageman and directed by executive producer Ben Hibon. It debuts on Paramount+ on Thursday, December 29.
As the Federation hangs in the balance, the crew must make the ultimate sacrifice to save Starfleet’s future.
New episodes of Prodigy debut on Thursdays exclusively on Paramount+ in the U.S., and on Fridays in Latin America and select countries in Europe. The series is also carried on SkyShowtime in the rest of Europe with the second half of season one expected to arrive in 2023.

This show is so far the best of the new era of Trek. I wish it were live action and I wish the creative team was given control of the whole franchise.
I find the show good but not the best imo it has had some great stories but like all Trek shows it has it’s problems. I hope for S2 they change things up.
I’m not particularly attached to any of the characters. The storytelling is solid though, which is a huge plus.
I’m surprised about it myself, but after this first season, I feel the same way! This should’ve been live action (and no other changes; still the same storylines, aimed at the same age group, etc.), and it would’ve been amazing!
This show has what Lower Decks is lacking for me: It strikes the right TONE, it FEELS like Trek, and doesn’t just disrespectfully “rummage around” in it for exploitation’s sake. LD has its moments here and there (last season’s DS9 episode, because it knows who to lure me in with 😅), but PRO, so far, is GOLDEN! 🪙😁👍
I don’t agree with what you say about LD, but absolutely agree about PRO feeling like Trek.
Do not forget, that this is born from Voyager Part. So i do have my thoughts if this would work for the entire franchise. But definitely fit like a glove when it comes to Voyager
My guess is that the second seasons mainplot for the Protostar-Crew is to find Chakotay, (unofficial) backed by the Vice-Admiral.
I have a feeling we’re going to be losing holo Janeway in this episode.
I think so too. I think the key is going to be resetting the Protostar to ‘factory settings’ so to speak.
I don’t think that means losing jolo-Janeway but rather her memories post construct.
facts me too
Its not true that new episodes of Prodigy are available on Paramount+ in Europe. In fact there are no new episodes. Its still America first. Paramount+ in Europe doesn`t have any worth for a star trek fan in Europe atm – you are still behind US at least six months.
The entire first season was aired on Nickelodeon in Denmark and a couple other regions though.
Blow up the damn ship!
”Ultimate sacrifice” I am guessing means blowing up the ship.
Blind warp using the proto engine, destination new galaxy, new adventures, no way back home anytime soon. Federation saved
Which I believe is foreshadowed by the title “Supernova”.
Blowing up the ship and sacrificing Hologram Janeway. I think i am more upset over losing hologram Janeway than i am over the destruction of the protostar.
unless of course someone pops up with a mobile emitter at the last minute. but i dont see that happening.
Would be very unusual to destroy the show’s starship and necessitate designing and animating so many brand new sets and a new title sequence.
My theory is that Chakotay will somehow come back from the future with the Protostar (uninfected)
Interesting development for season 2, we’ll just have to see what is in store…
So weird that we’re coming up on the end of Prodigy’s first season. Only eight weeks until Picard Season 3 then we’re off to Strange New Worlds again. I’ve really enjoyed this first season of Prodigy I’m sorry to see it end. Hopefully we don’t have to wait too long for Season 2.
I’m not thinking ‘only’ when looking at an 6 or 8 week break in new Trek offerings. It will make the end of this season of Prodigy all the more biting.
Tiger2 will say that who would have thought we’d have so much new Trek just a few years ago.
I’m clearly spoiled, looking at 50 episodes of Picard, SNW, LDS, Prodigy, and Discovery all working their way through postproduction and thinking “Why wait until mid February to premiere Picard season three?”
On the other hand, nothing is showing on the guild sheets for upcoming live action production for Trek in Toronto. While we know Paramount+ seems to like to wait until production is well advanced to announce new seasons being greenlighted, we usually see preproduction work showing up in January or February for a spring-summer of shooting.
Could be that the powers that be recognize they’re behind schedule for 2024 live action releases…
Especially as their footdragging on greenlighting things seems to mean their showrunners and talent are booked for other work.
Meanwhile, Terry Matalas’ new Witch Mountain television pilot for Disney+ is in production in the Greater Toronto & Hamilton Area.
I’m just hoping they won’t make the season finale a cliffhanger, unresolving the fate of Starfleet…
What’s worse, do that thing Picard does which is not even revisit it the next season.
This episode is so awesome, starfleet again save the world.
