Paramount+ to Premiere New Episodes of 'Star Trek: Prodigy' From Oct. 27


Mid-Season Return First Look Clip Also Unveiled

"Star Trek" Veteran Billy Campbell Joins the Series with Recurring Voice Cast Role

Series Produced by Nickelodeon and CBS Studios' Eye Animation Productions

September 8, 2022 - Paramount+ today announced that season one of original animated kids' series STAR TREK: PRODIGY will have its mid-season return on Thursday, Oct. 27, exclusively for Paramount+ subscribers in the U.S., Latin America, Australia, South Korea, and the U.K. It will air later in the year in South Korea, Germany, Italy, France, Austria, and Switzerland. The announcement was made during the STAR TREK: PRODIGY conversation that took place at today's global live-streamed "Star Trek Day" celebration. A mid-season return first-look clip was also revealed, featuring the U.S.S. Protostar crew and beloved character Murf as he completes his "metamurfosis."

The first all new episode of Star Trek: Prodigy is titled "Asylum" (#111).

In addition, it was announced and revealed in the first look clip that Billy Campbell will be joining the season one voice cast with a recurring role. Campbell will reprise his "Star Trek: The Next Generation" role as Thadiun Okona, a roguish space captain who's constantly outrunning trouble caused by his own tactics. When he runs into the young, impressionable Protostar crew, he'll soon discover they are in more hot water than he is. Campbell joins previously announced recurring voice cast members Daveed Diggs (Commander Tysess), Jameela Jamil (Ensign Asencia), Jason Alexander (Doctor Noum) and Robert Beltran (Captain Chakotay).

"From early on in the writers' room, we knew we wanted Captain Thadiun Okona to return and become a questionable guide to our impressionable crew," said executive producers Kevin and Dan Hageman. "It was so much fun to not only explore where Okona's outrageous life has taken him in his later years, but to also work with Billy Cambell who effortlessly fell back into the role of Okona like he had never left."

In the remaining STAR TREK: PRODIGY season one episodes, as the hopeful crew makes their way towards Starfleet, their dreams are threatened when they discover the U.S.S. Protostar harbors a weapon designed to tear the United Federation of Planets apart. To make matters worse, the real Vice Admiral Janeway is on a manhunt for the Protostar, eager to uncover what happened to her missing former First Officer Chakotay. With these two ships on a collision course and destruction on the horizon, the fate of the Alpha Quadrant hangs in the balance.

The STAR TREK: PRODIGY conversation at today's "Star Trek Day" celebration featured series voice cast members Kate Mulgrew and Brett Gray.

Developed by Emmy(R) Award winners Kevin and Dan Hageman ("Trollhunters" and "Ninjago"), the CG-animated series STAR TREK: PRODIGY is the first "Star Trek" series aimed at younger audiences, and follows a motley crew of young aliens who must figure out how to work together while navigating a greater galaxy, in search of a better future. These six young outcasts know nothing about the ship they have commandeered - a first in the history of the "Star Trek" franchise - but over the course of their adventures together, they will each be introduced to Starfleet and the ideals it represents.

STAR TREK: PRODIGY is from CBS' Eye Animation Productions, CBS Studios' new animation arm; Nickelodeon Animation, led by President of Animation Ramsey Naito; Secret Hideout; and Roddenberry Entertainment. Alex Kurtzman, Heather Kadin, Aaron Baiers, Katie Krentz, Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth serve as executive producers, alongside co-showrunners Kevin and Dan Hageman. Ben Hibon directs, co-executive produces and serves as the creative lead of the all-new animated series. Aaron Waltke and Patrick Krebs also serve as co-executive producers.

The Outrageous Okona returns

The STAR TREK: PRODIGY voice cast includes Kate Mulgrew (Hologram Kathryn Janeway), Brett Gray (Dal), Ella Purnell (Gwyn), Rylee Alazraqui (Rok-Tahk), Angus Imrie (Zero), Jason Mantzoukas (Jankom Pog), Dee Bradley Baker (Murf), John Noble (The Diviner) and Jimmi Simpson (Drednok).

STAR TREK: PRODIGY currently streams exclusively on Paramount+ in the U.S., Latin America, Australia, South Korea, and the UK and is coming soon to Paramount+ in Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, and France as well as to Nickelodeon international channels, which are available in 180 countries globally.

Released today is a new clip from the second half of Prodigy Season 1, where Dal (Brett Grey) and crew are on the run from Admiral Janeway (Kate Mulgrew) and her USS Dauntless — where it’s clear the kids have learned about the danger carried aboard Protostar, which would infect the Dauntless through communication channels.

The clip titled "Murf's Metamurfosis" shows the U.S.S. Protostar crew on the bridge with Murf (Dee Bradley Baker) inside of a cocoon while Rok-Tahk (Rylee Alazraqui) waits in anticipation, saying, "Woah! I can't wait to see our little Murf!" "And I can't wait to get out of here!" Dal R'El (Brett Gray) responds. "Pog, the proto-drive!"

As Pog (Jason Mantzoukas) sets the course, we find the Protostar in hot pursuit of a much larger ship. Holo-Janeway (Kate Mulgrew) asked incredulously, "What did you do while I was sleeping?" We see the other ship with Admiral Janeway (Mulgrew) with a full regulation Starfleet crew emerging, flanked by her first officer and science officer. "Don't let them get away," she orders. With the chase on in the slipstream, Protostar's Gwyn (Ella Purnell) brings up how the other ship is hailing them, but Dal warns if they make contact, the living construct that already has a grasp on the Protostar will infect them, too.

“Somewhere Over the Rerun” | ALF | FULL Episode: S2 Ep2 | ALFtv

ALF has taken a liking to watching Gilligan's Island (1964). He dresses accordingly and has coconut drinks. He's bored at the Tanners' house and takes things one step too far towards Gilligan's Island.

ALF follows the adventures of Gordon Shumway, a furry, wise-cracking alien from the planet Melmac who crash lands into the garage of the Tanner family. The Tanners offer him a home and give him the nickname ALF, short for “Alien Life Form.” Created by Tom Patchett (The Carol Burnett Show) and Paul Fusco (who also performed as ALF), the half-hour sitcom rose to popularity in the late 1980s, cementing itself in the pop culture zeitgeist.
