Paramount+ has announced the voice cast for their upcoming animated series, Star Trek Prodigy. This is the third animated series to take place in the Star Trek Universe. The Original Series animated show ran for 22 episodes from 1973 – 2974, Star Trek: Lower Decks premiered in 2020 and Season 2 begins on 08/12/21.
In addition to the cast listed below, we also know that Kate Mulgrew will be reprising her role as Katherine Janeway, however, she won’t be the same Captain Janeway we know from Voyager, this Janeway is an “emergency training hologram”; Billy Campbell will also be returning to the Trek universe as Thadiun Okona, a one-off character from Next Gen.
Star Trek Prodigy: Voice Cast
The newly announced cast for Star Trek Prodigy includes Ella Purnell as Gwyn, Brett Gray as Dal, Jason Mantzoukas as Jankom Pog, Dee Bradley Baker as Murf, Angus Imrie as Zero, and Rylee Alazraqui as Rok-Tahk.
Rylee Alazraqui (“Doug Unplugs,” “Home Economics”) as “Rok-Tahk,” a Brikar and an unusually bright eight-year-old girl. Rok is a bit shy, but not when it comes to her love for animals.
Brett Gray (“On My Block,” “When They See Us”) as “Dal,” 17 years old and an unknown species, he fancies himself a maverick, who even in the toughest times, holds strong onto his unwavering hope.
Angus Imrie (“The Crown,” “Emma”) as “Zero,” who is a Medusan: a noncorporeal, genderless, energy-based lifeform. Since others would go mad at the sight of their true self, Zero wears a containment suit they made themselves to protect others.
Jason Mantzoukas (“Infinite,” “Big Mouth”) as “Jankom Pog,” a 16-year-old Tellarite. Tellarites are known to relish an argument, and Jankom is no different. Regardless of opinion, he will always play ‘devil’s advocate’ for the sake of hearing all sides.
Ella Purnell (“Army of the Dead,” “Sweetbitter”) as “Gwyn,” a 17-year-old Vau N’Akat who was raised on her father’s bleak mining planet and grew up dreaming to explore the stars.
Dee Bradley Baker (“SpongeBob SquarePants,” “Dora the Explorer”) as “Murf,” whose age and species is unknown but who is an endearing, indestructible blob with curiously good timing and an insatiable appetite for ship parts.
In addition to the voice cast announcement we also got some really cool new character posters of the Star Trek Prodigy crew.
If you don’t mind being spoiled, you can check out some character breakdowns of other characters who will be appearing on Star Trek Prodigy. It should be noted however, that a rep from CBS reached out to us to let us know that some of the information in these breakdowns has been changed, but we were not able to find out exactly what those changes are.
Star Trek Prodigy will premiere on Paramount+ later this year before airing on Nickelodeon. What do you think of the look and voice cast for the new show?
