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 (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.

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.

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 (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.

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!
