Admiral Janeway takes a mid-finale moment to deliver the ninth entry of her series of Star Trek Logs on Instagram (voiced by Kate Mulgrew and written by co-executive producer Aaron Waltke). This one picks up after episode 19 (“Supernova, Part 1“), right in the middle of the battle being controlled by the Living Construct, which has Janeway concerned about the fate of Starfleet.
“Fate’s hour is upon us.”
Star Trek: Prodigy wraps up its first season with “Supernova, Part 2” on Thursday, and Janeway’s new log picks up right after the part 1 cliffhanger, describing how her ship, the USS Dauntless, is “coming apart all around us.” According to the log, she has followed through with ordering her crew to abandon ship to evacuate to the non-Starfleet vessels that have arrived to help, but she has a new concern:
Their computer systems are isolated from Starfleet’s for security reasons… but who knows how long it will save us.
She also lays out the stakes for those ships and Starfleet as more ships arrive:
I must believe Starfleet will endure this… but if the signal continues, and the Living Construct adapts… who knows.
The only bit of hope during the battle from episode 19 was the arrival of the non-Starfleet ships. Janeway suggests the Construct could react to their arrival as well, making things much worse for Starfleet. The stakes are clear, the signal must be stopped.

Chakotay on her mind
Even in the heat of a battle, Janeway’s thoughts return to concerns over her former USS Voyager first officer. She ends her log as she began her journey on the USS Dauntless with :
Chakotay, if you’re out there… and somehow find this… just know we never stopped searching.
In recent episodes, Janeway has learned that Chakotay is now trapped in the future on Solum after sending the Protostar back in time without a crew. If she makes it through this battle, you can be sure she will return to the search for Chakotay.
