Review: ‘Star Trek: Prodigy’ is Kid-Friendly ‘Star Trek’ for the Whole Family

It’s been a long road since the series finale of Star Trek: Enterprise in 2005 and the reemergence of watching serialized Star Trek in 2017 with Star Trek: Discovery

Since Alex Kurtzman set out to revive Star Trek on television screens around the world, we have been treated to Star Trek: Discovery, Star Trek: Picard, and the adult animated series Star Trek: Lower Decks.

But perhaps the best Star Trek story from this era is the one designed to usher in a new generation of Trekkies—Star Trek: Prodigy

Before Star Trek: Picard premiered last year, Star Trek: Enterprise was the last time I dropped everything to watch Star Trek on television. 

In an oversaturated television market, where every network has a streaming service and every streaming service is trying to appeal to their younger audience, Star Trek: Prodigy stands out as not only one of the best animated series, but one of the purest forms of Star Trek

Star Trek: Prodigy’s first installment, “Lost & Found” is a super-sized double episode clocking in at just under an hour.
