'Star Trek: Prodigy' Celebrates Dal R'El In New Clip From 'Season 1, Volume 1' Home Release

After introducing the world to Star Trek: Prodigy in two blocks of ten episodes each, season 1 of the highly-acclaimed Star Trek series has finally come to a close, and as the series is about beam onto Blu-ray and DVD, Paramount has released a clip from the home release, which you can check out below, courtesy of Screen Rant!

The animated show was created by Kevin and Dan Hageman with the aim of opening the doors of Star Trek to a younger audience and providing established viewers with a new and youthful lens from which to learn more about the universe. From the Fall of 2021 until the end of 2022, Paramount+ and Nickelodeon Animation did exactly that through Star Trek: Prodigy's tale of six alien kids who encountered the USS Protostar and tried to live the Starfleet life alongside a hologram Star Trek: Voyager's Janeway (Kate Mulgrew).

Aside from Mulgrew, who plays the hologram version of Janeway as well as her flesh-and-blood self over the course of the season, Star Trek: Prodigy's main cast includes a mix of veteran performers and several young voice talents. Brett Gray is Dal R'El, a 17-year-old Augment who becomes captain of the USS Protostar as he searches for the truth of his origins. Ella Purnell plays Gwyndala, a teenage Vau N'Akat and linguist who becomes the crew's communications officer. Jason Mantzoukas is Jankom Pog: an argumentative Tellarite and the ship's engineer. Star Trek: Prodigy also stars Angus Imrie as Zero, Rylee Alazraqui as Rok-Tahk, Dee Bradley Baker as Murf, Jimmi Simpson as Drednok, and John Noble as the Diviner.

What To Expect From Star Trek: Prodigy Season 1, Volume 1

In the above clip from Star Trek: Prodigy season 1, volume 1, Gray introduces his character of Dal and describes some of his importance in the major arc of the first season. Dal starts off as a scrappy kid who dreams of liberation, but as the show progresses, he learns about teamwork and leadership. Animation director Jason Meier goes on to describe him as a young cowboy, highlighting how his story and character development are comprised of equal parts comedy and pathos.

The above clip is but one scene from the over 75 minutes of additional footage available in the Star Trek: Prodigy season 1, volume 1 home release. Beyond the first ten episodes of season 1, the Blu-ray and DVD come equipped with never-before-seen bonus content and exclusive cards with key art from the show. The episodes can be viewed with their original English audio, as well as Spanish and French dubs. Fans can purchase their own copy for $17.99 on January 3 before season 2 arrives later this year.

While waiting for Star Trek: Prodigy season 2, Paramount has plenty of other universe-expanding series available. The alternate timeline of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds has completed its first season, while Star Trek: Lower Decks provides an altogether different animated experience. Lastly, the final season of Star Trek: Picard will land on February 16.

Star Trek: Prodigy season 1, volume 1 will be available on Blu-ray and DVD beginning on January 3.
