The final frontier is just the beginning!

As we gear up for the release of Star Trek: Prodigy on Netflix this December 25, here's a handy guide to the motley crew of young aliens who must figure out how to work together upon finding themselves aboard the U.S.S. Protostar!

In Season 1, our hopeful explorers make their way across the galaxy in search of a better future at Starfleet. However, their dreams are threatened as two different teams are hot on their trail — The Diviner who has nefarious machinations for the Protostar and Vice Admiral Janeway, and the U.S.S. Dauntless, who is eager to uncover what happened to her missing former First Officer Chakotay.

With these two ships on a collision course and destruction on the horizon, the fate of the Alpha Quadrant hangs in the balance.

The crew aboard the U.S.S. Protostar:

Dal R'El

Like the rest of the crew, Dal R'El (voiced by Brett Gray) escaped the labor colony of Tars Lamora after they discovered the abandoned U.S.S. Protostar. His species is unknown, but he's clever, headstrong, and more than happy to sit in the captain's chair!

Gwyn looks intently at her heirloom in 'Let Sleeping Borg Lie'

"Let Sleeping Borg Lie"

Gwyn (voiced by Ella Purnell) is a Vau N'Akat who once served her father, The Diviner. A change of heart led her to help the crew of the Protostar free the prisoners of Tars Lamora. As the ship's communications expert, she's fluent in a broad range of languages from across the galaxy.

Rok-Tahk smiles while bundled in winter planet gear in 'Crossroads'


As a Brikar, Rok-Tahk (voiced by Rylee Alazraqui) may look intimidating, but underneath that tough surface is a tender member of the crew. She loves small creatures and is best friends with Murf. Rok-Tahk is also incredibly bright, which serves her well as the ship's science officer.

Zero sticks out his tongue and reveals a delta combadge in 'Kobayashi'


Murf (voiced by Dee Bradley Baker)  is...well, Murf! While the crew can't identify his species, this lovable, gelatinous goofball appears to be indestructible and is quite talkative. If only anyone understood Murf's language!

Jankom Pog

Jankom Pog (voiced by Jason Mantzoukas) is a Tellarite and is frequently the most rowdy, stubborn member of the crew. As an engineer, he uses his mechanical arm and sharp mind to keep the ship's proto-drive in peak condition.

Zero attempts to make contact with the M-class planet in 'Terror Firma'

"Terror Firma"

Zero (voiced by Angus Imrie) is a Medusan, an incorporeal species whose very appearance can drive people mad. Because of this, Zero wears a containment suit to protect their fellow crew members. They are not only telepathic, but also sensitive and deeply loyal to their friends.

Holo-Janeway smiles approvingly in 'Asylum'


The young crew of the Protostar are guided by Hologram Janeway (voiced by Kate Mulgrew), the ship's virtual training advisor. Though her companions are not officially Starfleet cadets, she has come to care for them dearly — even if that means a bit of tough love every now and then!
