Star Trek unveils the first teaser for animated series Prodigy
Star Trek has offered the first official look at its proper return to telly.
The franchise has a stronghold on streaming TV with CBS All Access in the US and Netflix in the UK, but franchise bosses Alex Kurtzman and Heather Kadin are bringing it back to traditional TV as well.
During a panel at Comic-Con: At Home, the duo unveiled the official logo for the Nickelodeon original animated series Star Trek: Prodigy — which is being aimed at a younger audience than Discovery and Picard.
Prodigy will use CG animation in its story about a rebellious group of teenagers who encounter a broken down Federation starship. Together, they commandeer the ship to have adventures of their own, albeit without any approval from Starfleet!
The series is being developed by Kevin and Dan Hageman, the duo behind Trollhunters: Tales of Arcadia and LEGO's Ninjago series.
"Star Trek, Nickelodeon and the state of animation are doing incredibly ambitious things as of late, we couldn't be more excited to jump aboard," the Hageman brothers have said.
Star Trek: Prodigy is currently scheduled to premiere on Nickelodeon in 2021.
Star Trek also has animated spin-off Lower Decks launching its first season in August. Unlike Prodigy, Lower Decks is aimed at adults with its comedic depiction of the low-level workers aboard the USS Cerritos.
