Since its very first telecast in 1966, Star Trek has introduced audiences to a world that championed diversity, inclusion, acceptance and hope. Released jointly on Paramount+ and Nickelodeon, “Star Trek: Prodigy'' is an animated series that follows a rag-tag group of young aliens who find an abandoned Starfleet ship, the U.S.S. Protostar.
To promote the second half of the show’s first season, Paramount+ leaned into the Children’s and Family Emmy Award-winning show’s educational side.
In a series of bite-sized videos, astrophysicist and “Star Trek”' science advisor Dr. Erin Macdonald explains real science concepts featured in episodes of “Star Trek: Prodigy” in a way that’s easy for young viewers to understand.
