John Noble (“Fringe”) and Jimmi Simpson (“Westworld”) are set to voice the villains in the kids animated series “Star Trek: Prodigy” for the Paramount+ service.
Noble will voice the lead villain known as The Diviner who rules the mining asteroid of Tars Lamora. The Diviner is on a merciless quest to locate the U.S.S. Protostar, the mysteriously abandoned experimental Federation starship at the center of the series.
Instead, the ship is discovered by a motley crew of six young aliens who learn from the emergency training hologram Janeway (Kate Mulgrew) how to operate it. One of those aliens is also the Diviner’s child, Gwyn (Ella Purnell).
Simpson will voice Drednok, the Diviner’s spider-like robotic minion whose only purpose in life is to enforce his master’s will with hard-hearted ruthlessness.
Brett Gray, Angus Imrie, Rylee Alazraqui, Dee Bradley Baker and Jason Mantzoukas co-star in the series with Kevin and Dan Hageman (“Trollhunters,” “Ninjago”) serving as executive producers.
