The plotline for Star Trek: Prodigy Animated Series

Star Trek: Prodigy will follow the adventures of a young Spock and Starfleet cadet Thomas Harewood, whose father was killed in action. To understand how his father died, he befriends Zar (voiced by Michael Dorn), who is from an enemy race called Romulans that are fighting with the Federation.

This friendship leads him into positions where they both have to make difficult decisions as enemies turn friends then back again. This show is set in the year 22534, which is when Spock has retired from Starfleet Command and now teaches at a university. Military engagements are less common because of members of both sides recognizing that they will likely have to fight alongside each other in future conflicts.

As such, Romulans and Humans study together on some campuses where children from both races learn about how their cultures influenced one another.

I loved that they were able to keep a lot of the original characters. I hope it’s not too animated, but if so, at least we can have some great voice actors! The teaser trailer was also really well done and gave just enough information about the series. It doesn’t seem like there would be anything overly serious going on in this one because it is targeted towards kids. However, with Klingons and other villains lurking around every corner, you never know what will happen next for these new crewmembers who are full of potential. All-in-all, I am excited to see how Star Trek: Prodigy pans out when released on October 18th, 2019!
