Star Trek: Prodigy Trailer Teases an Exciting yet Emotional New Adventure

The first trailer for Star Trek: Prodigy has just been dropped and it offers an awesome glimpse at an exciting new adventure featuring completely new characters. But that's not the only thing we can expect in the upcoming animated series. The teaser also offered a small snippet of Kate Mulgrew's Kathryn Janeway assuring her new crew.

The Star Trek: Prodigytrailer opens with a group of aliens working together as a grim voice announces that no one shall escape. However, a young alien named Dal remains hopeful. He believes that he can get out of his current predicament and find a better life.

Although he is told that he's the only one who thinks he can escape, there are other youngsters who appear to be going through the same thing. And like Dal, they are eager to find a better life for themselves.

It isn't long before Dal stumbles upon an abandoned starship that could be their ticket to a better future. Will they succeed or are they destined for something worst?
