    The animated show will be aimed at the younger audiences

    The all-new animated series from the Star Trek franchise, Star Trek: Prodigy just announced some of its voice cast.

    Intended for youngsters, the story will be about a group of young audiences who stumble upon an abandoned Starfleet ship. The kids learn about the ship and get it up and running, so that they can head to the Alpha Quadrant. Prodigy isn’t the first animated show from the massive franchise. The first one to come out is Star Trek: The Animated Series, and the ongoing Star Trek: Lower Decks. However, Prodigy is the first one to be made just for kids.

    New audiences will meet Captain Janeway for the first time in Star Trek: Prodigy. Janeway was introduced to live action in the classic series, Star Trek: Voyager. Kate Mulgrew, who played the character in the live-action will lend her voice for the show. However, she will only be present as a holographic A.I. and serves as a guide to the young explorers. The other cast members include Jason Mantzoukas, Dee Bradley Baker, Ella Purnell, Brett Gray, Angus Imrie, and Rylee Alazraqui. John Noble and Jimmi Simpson will star as villains.

    Latest reports state that Jason Alexander, Daveed Diggs, and Jameela Jamil will join season 1 in recurring roles. Diggs will voice Commander Tysess, Jamil will voice Ensign Asencia, and Alexander will voice Doctor Noum. Jamil tweeted to confirm the news, and called it a “childhood dream” to be part of the franchise.
