Continue reading Star Trek: Prodigy S1, E20 – “Supernova, Part 2”
“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”

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”
