Plot and Cast of Star Trek: Prodigy
Since Season 1 is still going on, there’s no way to know where “Star Trek: Prodigy” will go in its second season. As long as the show doesn’t change its premise too much, it’s probably safe to say that the U.S.S. Protostar will keep going from the faraway Delta Quadrant to the Alpha Quadrant.
Since most of the most famous “Star Trek” civilizations live in the Alpha and Beta quadrants, it’s likely that the main characters will meet more and more familiar faces as their journey goes on. For example, they might meet humans, Romulans, Klingons, and other well-known species.
Because the show starts where no one has gone before and works its way back, you can probably expect the characters to run into a lot of classic “Star Trek” civilizations as their journey goes on.
Brett Gray is back as Dal, Ella Purnell is back as Gwyn, Angus Imrie is back as Zero, Rylee Alazraqui is back as Rok-Tahk, Jason Mantzoukas is back as Jankom Pog, and Dee Bradley Baker is back as Murf. Plus, Janeway should be played again by the great Kate Mulgrew.
The first part of the two-part midseason finale is a well-balanced, character-driven adventure that skillfully ties together things that have been building up all season. The only bad thing is that you have to wait a week for part 2.
As the Protostar crew hangs out and talks about how the last episode messed with time, they find a recording inside what’s left of Dred 2’s broken robot body. The Diviner interrupts their party by giving them an ultimatum: they have one day to return the USS Protostar, or he will kill all the “unwanted” miners.
Rok says, “What a &*#!… I mean “monster.” In the ship’s conference room, they talk about their two options: protowarp to the Federation in the vague hope that Starfleet can help in time, or go back to Tars Lamora to try (somehow) to save their former slave companions.
Janeway makes it clear that Dal has to make the choice, and Gwyn drives the point home by saying, “He wanted to be in charge, so now he has to make the hard choice.” But the kid captain has learned from his past mistakes. He is not willing to use one of his “half-baked” plans in a situation that looks like it can’t end well and risk losing his friends and everything they’ve fought for.
Gwyn gets Dal on #TeamSaveEveryone with a “catboots” reference to the first episode of the show. He tells Dal that the crew he is worried about is actually his strength. Start the montage as the friends come up with a plan that involves jet packs, phasers, blueprints, Murf, and lots of coffee.
These guys are becoming more like Janeway. Dal thinks about how far he and the others have come since they escaped from Tars Lamora and decides that it’s time to put away the last things that remind them of the past. And it just so happens that his quarters have a shiny new Starfleet uniform that fits him perfectly, and the rest of the crew does the same.
Janeway looks at her new, fully uniformed crew with pride and gives them one more Starfleet pep talk. She also changes her outfit to match theirs. Dal starts giving orders like a real captain, and soon it’s time to “engage the photo drive” and “go fast.” Okay, he’s still a little bit of a kid.
When they get back to Tars Lamora, the Rev-12 pulls the ship in while the sad miners, like that cute Caitian kitten, watch with a new spark of hope. Dal tells himself and the rest of the team that they “know what to do.” As their last preparation, Murf and the cargo transporter play “dress-up,” and then they leave the ship to face the Diviner and his scary sidekick Drednok.
The worst dad ever makes fun of the new uniforms, but Gwyn channels her inner Picard and proudly claps back about “a commitment to strive for a better future.” The Diviner is angry, so of course, he changes the deal. He also wants his daughter back.
Gwyn is determined to make up for what happened in the past, so she is willing to make this sacrifice. She says her goodbyes with tears and even gives Dal a hug, and then trades herself for the Rev-12 and a way for her friends to get off that lonely rock. The Diviner keeps his promise and frees the slaves. With his children by his side, he gets on his precious Protostar and takes off.
The leader of the Vau N’Akat makes himself at home on the bridge. He gets rid of the “Starfleet nuisance” Janeway quickly, and Drednok gives her a new, more compliant and dangerous body. And to show how bad he is, The Diviner destroys the power generators on the Rev-12.
This leaves everyone on Tars Lamora without gravity and with a ticking clock until the shield, which is holding all the air in, breaks. “I gave them a ship, not their lives,” he said. Wow, does this guy have some kind of book on how to talk like a bad guy? Gwyn uses this time to try to get The Diviner to finally explain why he is so obsessed with the ship, but he quickly realises that she is hiding something and that the ship is missing something important.
Back on Tars, the group stops acting like they are in trouble and gets together to show that they have the Protocol, which is hidden inside the unbreakable Murf, which is hidden inside a fake Zero.
Genius! Part of Gwyn’s plan was to get her father to trade her for the ship. The real Zero comes out with those handy jet packs. They start working right away to “save everyone,” hoping that “Gwyn can buy us enough time for this crazy plan to work,” which sounds ominous. Cliffhanger!
