Mulgrew will voice Janeway for Nickelodeon's upcoming animated series about a group of lawless teens who discover a derelict Starfleet ship and use it to search for adventure, meaning and salvation. "I have invested every scintilla of my being in Captain Janeway, and I can't wait to endow her with nuance that I never did before in Star Trek: Prodigy," Mulgrew said in a statement. "How thrilling to be able to introduce to these young minds an idea that has elevated the world for decades. To be at the helm again is going to be deeply gratifying in a new way for me." Star Trek boss Alex Kurtzman said of bringing Janeway back: "Captain Janeway was held to a different standard than her predecessors. She was asked to embody an inhuman level of perfection in order to be accepted as 'good enough' by the doubters, but showed them all what it means to be truly outstanding. We can think of no better captain to inspire the next generation of dreamers on Nickelodeon, than she."
