“Star Trek: Prodigy” & “Lower Decks” Trailers

Originally published on Dark Horizons by Garth Franklin

One of the virtual Comic-Con@Home panels today was the one for “Star Trek” with new trailers released for the upcoming seasons of both animated series set in the franchise.

First there’s the teaser trailer for the Nickelodeon and Paramount+ CG animated series “Star Trek: Prodigy” which will debut on Paramount+ this fall.

That follows six young aliens who commandeer an abandoned Starfleet starship they know nothing about. Kate Mulgrew reprises her Capt. Kathryn Janeway role from “Star Trek: Voyager” as a hologram who helps teach the new, young crew how to navigate the cosmos.

Also shown was the official trailer for the second season of the adult traditionally animated series “Star Trek: Lower Decks” which will premiere on August 12th on the streamer.

The new season begins with Ensign Boimler (Jack Quaid) aboard the U.S.S. Titan as captained by William Riker while his old compatriots toil away on the far less glamorous U.S.S. Cerritos.
