The cast of Star Trek: Prodigy has finally been revealed and it looks like a very familiar voice will be once again heard in the upcoming animated series. It has just been confirmed that Star Wars: The Bad Batch actor Dee Bradley Baker is one of the promising members of the ship's new crew.
The official Star Trek on Paramount+ Twitter account has just announced the cast of Prodigy and it includes some major stars. For instance, Army of the Dead actress Ella Purnell will provide the voice of the young Vau N'Akat named Gwyn.
Not surprisingly, fans were delighted to learn that Baker will play one of the aliens in the new animated show. Baker has been cast as Murf, who is described as "an endearing, indestructible blob with curiously good timing and an insatiable appetite for ship parts." That sounds like an interesting role for Baker to tackle.
Baker is best known for providing the voices of the Clone Troopers in Star Wars: The Clone Wars. He plays all members of Clone Force 99 in Star Wars: The Bad Batch.
Prodigy will also feature the voices of Brett Gray (On My Block) as Dal, Jason Mantzoukas (Big Mouth) as Jankom Pog, Angus Imrie (The War of the Worlds) as Zero, and Rylee Alazraqui (Witness Infection) as Rok-Tahk. They will be joined by Kate Mulgrew, who reprises her role as Captain Kathryn Janeway from Star Trek: Voyager.
Star Trek: Prodigy has not yet been given an official release date. However, the series is expected to premiere on Paramount+ later this year.
