Okay!! So You wanted to watch a Series which is very exciting, emotional, having dark at some point, visually animated, connecting Characters, and has rich storytelling like Avatar: The Last Airbender, then Star Trek: Prodigy is it. Doesn’t matter if you are a Star Trek fan or not, an ardent fan of Animation is enough to watch this series. Star Trek: Prodigy is produced by Nickelodeon and CBS Studios. But don’t let Nickelodeon or Star Trek brand dissuade you to watch this series. Though it had a weaker start by some will say, it’s kinda feel like Star Wars than Star Trek, you don’t even care after watching 5-6 episodes after it started to go into the right path and everything else just overshadows for good. Animation Fans should watch Prodigy even if they didn’t watch any single Star Trek Series or Movies before. Though Nickelodeon brand is always targeted for kids and teens, but this series is enjoyed by all ages from 8 to 80.

 The Worldbuilding of the series is something that you expect from the best of Star Trek Media. And the CGI visuals are exceptionally good for viewing pleasures. And the serialised storytelling is something that you won’t see in any Star Trek Media. And the Characters, somehow connects you to go boldly where no one has gone before. And plus point, it has Star Trek: Voyager’s own captain Kathryn Janeway (Kate Mulgrew) as a Hologram to guide the misfit crew on the USS Protostar, which is the main starship for this series. It has some basic Starfleet morals to learn, and some Easter Eggs for callbacks from previous Star Trek Media and so on. And the Story Arc and Character Arc are icing on a cake to stay on the journey. The characters are also connectable from Dal, Gwyn, Rok-Tahk to Zero, Jankom Pog, Murf, The Diviner, and so on. It has received one Emmy Nomination and a Emmy win. 

The series is created by Dan and Kevin Hageman from The Trollhunters and Lego: Ninjago series and directed by Ben Hibon. Stellar Voice Casts like, Brett Gray, Ella Purnell, Rylee Alazraqui, Jason Mantzoukas, Angus Imrie, John Noble, Jimmy Simpson and Dee Bradley Baker making this series so emotionally connecting. Give this series a try. You won’t be regretted. In my opinion, I would say Star Trek: Prodigy should get more recognition than most other currently running animated series as it’s the game changer for Nickelodeon after Avatar: The Last Airbender ended. It’s now available to stream on Paramount+ with 20 episodes in its first season. Every Animation Fans should cherish and would love this series.
