Star Trek Head Teases Janeway's Return: “There Are Many More Surprises in Store”

Kate Mulgrew, the voice actress of Capt. Kathryn Janeway in the original version and her holographic recreation, attended the Star Trek Universe New York Comic Con panel on Saturday, to introduce the Star Trek: Prodigy Season 1 midseason trailer.

During the fan Q&A session, a fan asked about the possibility of Mulgrew reprising her voicing role in live-action. Seeing as there’s a return of the Star Trek: The Next Generation cast in Star Trek: Picard season 3, the idea seems even more probable.

Mulgrew eagerly, almost teasingly, turned the question over to Alex Kurtzman, the producer in charge of the Star Trek television franchise. Read on to see Kurtzman’s response below:

“Here’s what I’m going to say: Things have been talked about; that’s all I’m going to say. But nothing would make me happier than to bring Janeway back. I think it would be an incredible, incredible thing to do. There might be an idea in play. Who knows? But I would love it to happen.”

Once Kate Mulgrew voiced Capt. Kathryn Janeway of the USS Voyager in Star Trek: Voyager, the actress also returned to voice Janeway’s hologram version in Star Trek: Prodigy and the mirror universe version of the character in Star Trek Online. It is no surprise that fans would love to see Mulgrew reprise her role in live-action. Besides, it would only make sense since she has basically been established as the sci-fi icon.

Even Mulgrew herself admitted her excitement to come back for the character again in live-action, as she told in June.

For now, the actress teased what’s coming up next for Janeway fans for Star Trek: Prodigy: “There are many more surprises in store, so I have to be careful. She is an admiral, but she is capable of surprising even herself, and what is coming will be entirely unexpected and will then turn into something pretty wonderful, taking this into an altogether new season for Janeway in her several incarnations.”
