Upcoming animated series “Star Trek: Prodigy” keeps setting our expectations high. First, it was the early animation teases. Then, it was the reveal that none other than Captain Kathryn Janeway (Kate Mulgrew) formerly of the Starship Voyager, would be appearing. Now, after a panel during New York Comic Con (NYCC) 2021, we find out that Chakotay (Robert Beltran) will ALSO be a part of “Star Trek: Prodigy!”
New cast memebers announced during the panel include Daveed Diggs as Commander Tysess, Jameela Jamil as Ensign Asencia, Jason Alexander as Doctor Noum, and Robert Beltran as Captain Chakotay.
There was also a new clip shared, which highlights hologram Janeway meeting her new ‘crew.’ It’s so good to hear that voice again, not gonna lie. You can watch the official title sequence for the series here.
We meet Murf (Dee Bradley Baker), Brikar Rok-Tahk (Rylee Alazraqui), Jankom Pog (Jason Mantazoukas), Zero a Medusan (Angus Imrie), Dal (Brett Gray), and Vau N’Akart Gwyn (Ella Purnell). The Diviner and Drednok, notable villains for the series, will be voiced by John Noble and Jimmi Simpson.
