That was A LOT!! Continue reading What were your Top Ten episodes of Star Trek in 2022?
“Supernova, Part 2” concludes our first season of this enjoyable show by bringing the journey we’ve been on with these wonderful characters to a satisfying ending.

“Supernova, Part 1” was a thrilling, and jam-packed beginning installment to this season’s finale. The main thrust of the story features our heroes eliminating every imaginable course of action that could help them stop the Living Construct from initiating the complete annihilation of Starfleet. Those are pretty high stakes for an animated series that was originally designed to be a young person’s introduction to the world of Star Trek. But we’ve said this before, Prodigy’s first season story arc has performed in the same serialized narrative style as the modern live-action Star Trek series. However, “Supernova” has the potential to deliver us a fantastic Season One conclusion. Continue reading Star Trek: Prodigy S1, E19 – “Supernova, Part 1”

In “Preludes,” the crew of the Protostar takes time to pause and learn the backstory of Rok-Tahk, Jankom Pog, and Zero. The episode also provides us with a detailed explanation of the first contact between Solum and Starfleet in addition to giving us insight to the whereabouts of Chakotay.
While “Ghost in the Machine” presents the crew trapped within what they believe to be is a holodeck malfunction made from a mashup of their individual simulations. They discover its something far more sinister putting them in far graver danger. Continue reading Star Trek: Prodigy S1, E16 & E17 – “Preludes” & “Ghost in the Machine”
The title of the episode, “Masquerade,” is a subtle hint to the big reveals we get. While trapped inside the Romulan Neutral Zone, the Protostar crew encounters a rogue geneticist who sheds light on Dal’s past.
This was a chapter that offered us significant movement in one of the show’s original questions by simply answering it. But it also exposed other surprises we didn’t anticipate.
We’re now 75% through the first season. With 5 episodes left, we have unexpected wrinkles that have added to the intrigue and curiosity of the viewing experience. Continue reading Star Trek: Prodigy S1, E15 – “Masquerade”
“Crossroads” is an appropriately named episode because that’s exactly where the crews of both the Protostar and the Dauntless find themselves, at a crossroads. Their respective quests have them converging on an outpost at the edges of Federation space. When Gwyn, Dal, and Jankom Pog, each encounter a member of Adm. Janeway’s crew the experience doesn’t improve matters at all. Continue reading Star Trek: Prodigy S1, E14 – “Crossroads”
“All the World’s a Stage” is a wonderful combination of an homage to TOS and subtle critique of Star Trek lore. Just as our heroes’ have chosen to avoid contacting Starfleet for fear of destroying them with the Diviner’s weapon, … Continue reading Star Trek: Prodigy S1, E13 – “All the World’s a Stage”
