Star Trek: Prodigy S1, E19 – “Supernova, Part 1”

“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.

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”
