The debut episode of Prodigy was also shown to the in-person audience at New York Comic Con. And several new voice actors were announced for the show in recurring roles, including Daveed Diggs (Commander Tysess), Jameela Jamil (Ensign Asencia), Jason Alexander (Doctor Noum) and... Robert Beltran, who will reprise his role as Chakotay from Star Trek: Voyager. (It was revealed that he's now a captain in the Star Trek timeline!) Seinfeld alumnus Jason Alexander previously appeared on Voyager's fifth season episode "Think Tank."

Robert Beltran will reprise his role as Chakotay from Star Trek: Voyager.

As opposed to Star Trek: Lower Decks, Prodigy is being billed as the more kid-friendly Trek animated series. As such, it will be streaming on Paramount+ beginning Oct. 28 and also make its way to Nickelodeon (though the exact timing there has yet to be released).

The NYCC panel included Kate Mulgrew and her fellow voice actors Brett Gray (Dal), Rylee Alazraqui (Rok-Tahk), and Dee Bradley Baker (Murf), plus executive producers Kevin and Dan Hageman, director and co-executive producer Ben Hibon, and Paramount Animation and Nickelodeon Animation's Ramsey Naito. The rest of the main voice cast for Prodigy includes Angus Imrie (Zero), Jason Mantzoukas (Jankom Pog), and Ella Purnell (Gwyn).

Here's the official logline for the Star Trek: Prodigy series premiere, “Lost & Found”:

The one-hour Star Trek: Prodigy premiere hits on Thursday, Oct. 28, on Paramount+ in the U.S. Prodigy will also be available on Paramount+ in international territories including Latin America, the Nordics, and Australia.
