Captain Janeway Is Heading Back Into Our Lives as Kate Mulgrew Joins Star Trek: Prodigy
The captain of our dreams is coming back in Star Trek: Prodigy. Maybe it’s 2020 or maybe it’s just a love of Captain Janeway deep inside my soul, but I am crying about this news.
Breaking at the very end of New York Comic Con’s Star Trek panel, it seems as if Kate Mulgrew will return to the captain’s chair for the series and bring life to the iconic Captain Janeway once more. Prodigy is an upcoming animated series created for Nickelodeon by Kevin and Dan Hageman and follows teenagers who discover an abandoned starship and begin to go on adventures.
So, having Mulgrew on the show is a brilliant way of tying in old Star Trek fans to this new universe. And who knows, maybe kids will discover the joy that Star Trek brings and go back to the beginning of the series. I will gladly take Original Series memes from the teens.
In a press release, Mulgrew shared her excitement of returning to Janeway and bringing the captain back into the world for a new generation.
To be honest, I think we do need Star Trek in our lives right now. It’s a world that I’ve always wanted to live in and I think that, with our current political climate, there are many that could find solace in the world created by Gene Roddenberry. Twitter erupted in excitement for the return of Janeway though. (As they should!)
Don’t mind me. I’ll just be crying about Janeway for the rest of the day.
