Supernatural episode "Drag Me Away (From You)" attempts to give viewers the old 'the past comes back to haunt you' with a Winchester twist, but really the episode is a vague attempt to drive a rift between Sam and Dean and let us know one important fact: the beginning of the end IS coming.

Mary Anne Butler
Mary Anne Butler (Mab) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), Bleeding Cool (where she was News Editor), and now NerdBot as News Editor. Over the past 10 years, she’s built a reputation at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. Though she be but little, she is fierce.

We are so absolutely delighted to share the news that Kate Mulgrew, who played Captain Katheryn Janeway on “Star Trek: Voyager,” is returning to the Roddenberry fold.

Announced just this morning during the “Star Trek” panel at New York Comic Con (NYCC), a new casting trailer for the upcoming animated Nickelodeon series “Star Trek: Prodigy” included the coffee-drinking captain.

You can see the announcement video here.

Mulgrew says:


“When [exec producer] Alex Kurtzman called me over a year ago to propose this idea I have to tell you at first I was a little bit uncertain. After all I have played her for seven years in four-and-a-half-inch heels. I have invested every scintilla of my being in that woman. And I thought, ‘An animated version of Janeway? I don’t know.’ But as I was talking to Kurtzman on the phone, long dormant longings to restore her started to stir and I thought, ‘This could be heavenly.’”


Brothers Kevin and Dan Hageman (“Trollhunters,” “Ninjago“) are the creative team behind animated series “Star Trek: Prodigy,” which follows a group of lawless teens who discover a derelict Starfleet ship and use it to search for adventure, meaning and salvation.

“Star Trek: Prodigy” is expected to hit Nickelodeon sometime in 2021.
