At ViacomCBS’ Investor Day event on Wednesday, February 24th, 2021, Viacom CBS announced that the Star Trek universe will be made available for streaming on Paramount+, including the U.S. premiere of Star Trek: Prodigy in 2021.
Star Trek: Prodigy is developed by CBS Studios and Nickelodeon, and is the first Trek series that’s geared towards the kids and family audience. It’s also the third animated Trek series, after Star Trek: The Animated Series (1973) and the ongoing Star trek: Lower Decks(2020).
The announcement included a first look at the six members of the Star Trek: Prodigy bridge crew. The story will follow the six outcasts, who are introduced to Starfleet and its ideals after they commandeer a ship.
Previously it was announced that Kate Mulgrew will be reprising the role of Kathryn Janeway for the series, a character she originated in Star Trek: Voyager (1995), which ran for seven seasons.
