Star Trek: The Original Series - Episode Guide - Season 2

While Star Trek season one generally impressed the TV critics and writers, already leaving an indelible mark on 1960s American pop culture, viewing figures weren’t great and thus CBS executives were hesitant to greenlight par two. Perhaps it was Gene Roddenberry’s enthusiasm for the production that ramrodded Star Trek onto television sets for 1967-68. The blasé attitude of execs for Star Trek was enough that episode 26, i.e. the final, was set to serve as a spinoff for an entirely different series about a mysterious time traveler named Gary Seven. (Apparently someone was catching early Doctor Who…)

In terms of watchability, season two of the original series rehashes some already worn ideas, but does bring innovative stuff like the mirror universe and Tribbles, both of which would continue to manifest themselves throughout the ST series.

1. Amok Time – Or, if you’d like, Spock vs. Kirk, round 2. The old buddies come to blows (so to speak) when Spock is nearly driven insane by the ravages on the Pon Farr. ***

2. Who Mourns for Adonis? – That’s right, it’s time for another Insane God! This one’s literal, as an all-powerful being claiming to be Apollo (!) captures the Enterprise crew. (Unless he meant Apollo form, you know, the 1970s Battlestar Galactica series…?) **

3. The Changeling – Something of a template for the Star Trek: The Motion Picture script. A 20th-century Earth probe has gained near-sentience and seeks to “find and sterilize imperfection,” such as the 4 billion citizens of a world the Enterprise was not in time to save. ***

4. Mirror, Mirror – A transporter malfunction (you knew it had to be a transporter malfunction) sends Kirk, McCoy, Scotty and Uhura into a parallel universe in which Machiavelli is probably taught in first grade and the Enterprise is on no peacekeeping mission. ****

5. The Apple – An away team loses a few Red Shirts early on to various “natural” pitfalls on a planet inhabited by Stone Age-level people controlled by An Insane God! (So much for the ol’ Prime Directive here; Janeway would be having fits, I tell ya!) **

6. The Doomsday Machine – The Enterprise comes to the assistance of the Constellation, a Federation starship nearly destroyed by a planet-sized destruction machine (so kinda like the Death Star but uncontrolled). Unfortunately, the Constellation’s captain is obsessed with wreaking vengeance on the planet-killer. A much-celebrated episode from the original series, “Doomsday Machine” has inspired video games and Star Trek novels. ****

7. Catspaw – While orbiting a seemingly dead planet, the Enterprise is captured by two Insane Gods! involved in a struggle which manifests itself in the form of traditional symbols of witchery. **

8. I, Mudd – That (humanoid trafficker) old rapscallion Harry Mudd is back, this time lording over a planet populated only by some 200,000 androids. After one such android poses as a Red Shirt to hijack the Enterprise (hey, it’s was the late 2260s), Mudd has some fun with the Enterprise bridge crew before Kirk confounds the androids with simplistic logical paradoxes. ***

9. Metamorphosis – Zefram Cochrane, inventor of Earth’s first warp drive, is found alive, sustained by a companion that he calls, well, his Companion. The episode that sent rabid fans to feverishly retconning at the cinematic release of Star Trek: First Contact. **

10. Journey to Babel – Spock’s parents Sarek and Amanda board the Enterprise on the way to mediate peace talks between the Andorians and Tellarites. And along the way, the small question of … murder! ***

11. Friday’s Child – The Federation and the Klingons compete for the economic affection of the Capella, seriously hot-headed dudes on a planet rich in dilithium. ***

12. The Deadly Years – The first in a long tradition of rapid-aging stories on Star Trek. In this one, Kirk, Spock, McCoy, etc., contract the bad space virus and as they approach senility, Romulans choose to attack. ***

13. Obsession – When Kirk spots a “gaseous entity” that destroyed a ship previously under his command, he becomes (you guessed it) obsessed with killing the thing. *

14. Wolf in the Fold – A surprisingly dark episode in which a number of grisly, savage murders are committed, apparently at Scotty’s hands – but the actual murderer is a more primal, ancient force. ***

15. The Trouble with Tribbles –Star Trek Guide is firmly of the opinion that the Tribbles are some of the most cleverly conceived aliens within the ST universe, at least until the Borg. This introduction to the balls o’ fur has everything you’d want in a great ST episode: humor, character notes, a random rogue figure, Klingons kicking ass … no wonder “Trouble with Tribbles” is so unforgettable. *****

16. The Gamesters of Triskelion – Insane Gods! or mere disembodied aliens? No matter, as the gamesters of the title are three ladies who force the Enterprise crew to participate in gladiator-style competition. ***

17. A Piece of the Action – Sorry, but once the showrunners accepted the case for “parallel evolution”, the stretching for story ideas was obvious. In “Action,” the Enterprise crew finds a planet sporting a humanoid culture resembling exactly that of 1920s Chicago. Pretty silly stuff, though Kirk and Spock’s explanation of Fizzbin is almost worth the price of admission. **

18. The Immunity Syndrome – An energy-eating creature destroys a Vulcan ship, followed by the Tn Enterprise crew rather inelegantly taking the metaphorical eye for an eye in response. **

19. A Private Little War – War with Klingons, that is! When the Federation discovers the Klingon Empire messing around with a low level of technological development, the Enterprise is dispatched to address the cultural contamination. Machinations ensue before Kirk finally chucks the ol’ Prime Directive right out the porthole. ***

20. Return to Tomorrow – Disembodied aliens take over various bodies of Enterprise crew in turn in order to build other corporeal bodies they may inhabit. **

21. Patterns of Force – When in doubt, turn to Nazis! (Hey, Voyager and Enterprise both did…) A former Starfleet professor has “assisted” the cultures of twin planets through technological advances and the adoption of fascism as a choice of government. ***

22. By Any Other Name – Kirk and his away team are attacked by aliens from the Andromeda Galaxy. They soon take over the Enterprise and begin prepping it for a 300-year mission back to Andromeda. As the ship approaches the Galactic Barrier (Hey, that thing can turn you into an Insane God!, you know…), Kirk engages one in a fistfight and rapidly convinces the rest to stay in the Milky Way. **

23. The Omega Glory – Probably the stupidest of the “parallel evolution” stories, “The Omega Glory” culminates in William Shatner giving his best/worst melodramatic reading of The Constitution and convincing everyone that the American Way is Good. *

24. The Ultimate Computer – Another tried ‘n’ true Star Trek trope gets a rerun for this episode. The Enterprise installs “a new computer system.” The so-called M-5 gets fanatical in a hurry, wreaking particular havoc during a four-ship war game. Have no fear, however: Majel Barrett’s voice is returned to the Enterprise for the next episode. ***

25. Bread and Circuses – Ready for some more “parallel evolution”? Some more gladiator games? Yeah, I thought not. *

26. Assignment : Earth – It’s incredibly unfortunate that “Assignment: Earth” was mostly produced so as to spinoff the supporting character Gary Seven into his own program, because this is one wacky, fun-filled Star Trek episode which really should have set a precedent for ST:TOS scripts. Admittedly time-traveling way too easily into the 20th century, the Enterprise crew engages in a mission involving hyper-advanced technology, Cold War paranoia, a stolen nuclear missile, a magic cat and Teri Garr. ****

Star Trek Season 2 Episode 22

Ep 22. By Any Other Name

  • February 23, 1968
  • 7.5   (3,325)

In the second season of the beloved science-fiction series, Star Trek, episode 22 is titled "By Any Other Name". The episode features the crew of the USS Enterprise encountering an alien race, the Kelvans, who have traveled across the universe in search of a new home after their own galaxy was destroyed. The Kelvans are incredibly advanced, possessing technology that far surpasses what the Enterprise crew has ever seen. The Kelvans are shown as cold and analytical, with no use for emotion or compassion.

The episode begins with the Enterprise approaching an uncharted planet. While investigating the planet, the crew discovers an ancient alien city which appears to have been recently inhabited. The team discovers strange, humanoid creatures who ambush them immediately. The creatures turn out to be the Kelvans. They incapacitate the Enterprise crew and force them to reveal all of their secrets.

The Kelvans reveal that their own galaxy was destroyed and that they are in search of a new home. The crew of the Enterprise becomes suspicious of the Kelvans' true intentions, especially after they install a device on the ship which neutralizes all of its weapons and defenses. The Kelvans insist that they only want to peacefully coexist with the Enterprise crew, but the crew is wary.

The Kelvans are using their advanced technology to transform the crew into a liquid form of themselves that can be stored inside small gems. The gem is then worn around the neck of the Kelvans. The crew is horrified by this transformation, but under the threat of further punishment, they are forced to comply.

Captain Kirk and his crew, including Mr. Spock and Dr. McCoy, must devise a plan to overthrow the Kelvans and regain control of the Enterprise. The crew members manage to convince one of the Kelvans, named Rojan, to work with them, and they begin to hatch a plan. Rojan starts to exhibit emotions, which is a stark contrast to how his race has previously been portrayed.

The episode takes a turn when Rojan begins to develop feelings for Lieutenant Marla McGivers. The two start to fall in love, and Rojan begins to question whether his quest for a new home is worth destroying the lives of so many innocent beings.

The climax of the episode features the crew of the Enterprise trying to regain control of the ship, with the help of Rojan and his fellow Kelvans. The episode concludes with the Kelvans deciding to abandon their quest for a new home and return the Enterprise crew back to their original form. Rojan decides to stay behind on the planet with McGivers, marking a significant departure from the Kelvans' original plan.

In "By Any Other Name," viewers are exposed to the concept of advanced, emotionless extraterrestrial beings who are intelligent beyond human understanding. The episode also explores the idea of humanity and how our emotions and connection to each other can make us stronger than any advanced technology. The episode's focus on Rojan's newfound emotions is also a commentary on how emotions and empathy are essential components of our humanity.

Overall, "By Any Other Name" is a thrilling and thought-provoking addition to Star Trek's second season. The episode's exploration of extraterrestrial life and our fundamental connection to our emotions makes for an engaging and exciting viewing experience.

Did you know

  • Trivia As Commander Tucker is trying to choose a movie to show to the Cogenitor, among the titles in the library is the fictional 1930s science fiction film "The Bride of Chaotica," a reference to a chapter in the campy Buck Rogers/Flash Gordon-type "Captain Proton" serial favored by Lt. Tom Paris in Star Trek: Voyager (1995). Indeed, Captain Kathryn Janeway herself reluctantly played the eponymous character in the episode Bride of Chaotica! (1999) . Another title shown is "Dixon Hill and the Black Orchid." Dixon Hill is a 1940s private investigator noir series, also unique to the Star Trek universe. Captain Jean-Luc Picard frequently played Hill himself on the Holodeck in several episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987) . In fact, all of the film titles shown are bogus, except for The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951) , which was directed by Robert Wise , who also directed Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979) . Another "movie" listed is Mr. Willis of Ohio (1999) , which is actually the title of an episode of The West Wing (1999).
  • Goofs The Vissian chief engineer tells Commander Tucker that a polymer used on their ship is made of more than 200 naturally occurring elements. Tucker is shocked because the Earth database show only 92 naturally occurring elements. What's wrong here is that at the time of filming there were already 94 naturally occurring elements discovered and not 92 (as of 2017 94 plus 24 synthetics elements for a total of 118 ).

[Archer is preparing for an exploration trip with the Vissian captain]

Captain Jonathan Archer : These people are fascinating, T'Pol, they have a lot to offer us... This could be the beginning of a beautiful relationship! - Which reminds me... They've asked us for a sampling of films. I put together a few suggestions.

Sub-Commander T'Pol : I'll see to it.

Captain Jonathan Archer : [ready to go] You're in charge!

Editor's note: The below review contains major spoilers for Star Trek: Prodigy Season 2.

The Big Picture

  • Star Trek: Prodigy Season 2 is a thrilling and heartwarming continuation of the series, featuring time travel and strong character development.
  • The animation and storytelling are top-notch, with themes that resonate with both children and adults.
  • The series deserves more recognition and attention for successfully capturing the essence of Star Trek and its endless potential.

A year after Star Trek: Prodigy was cancelled at Paramount+ , the series has delivered one of the best 20-episode runs of television in recent memory with its long-awaited Season 2 premiere. It’s hard to believe that the home of Star Trek would let Season 2 — which is, by all rights, a love letter to the entire franchise, past and present — go to another streamer. Now Netflix will reap the rewards of the flawless, exhilarating storytelling it delivers, which will keep audiences on the edge of their seats. With its second season, Star Trek: Prodigy has taken the very best parts of a nearly sixty-year-old franchise and infused them with vibrant joy, hope-punk optimism, and fresh perspectives. Whether you’re a seven-year-old experiencing Star Trek for the very first time, a millennial who was raised on Star Trek: Voyager , or a die-hard Star Trek: The Next Generation fan, there’s something for everyone spread out across this season, and it will be a crying shame if these characters’ stories end here.

Season 2 picks up shortly after the close of Season 1, with Dal ( Brett Gray ), Jankom Pog ( Jason Mantzoukas ), Rok-Tahk ( Rylee Alazraqui ), Zero ( Angus Imrie ), and Murf ( Dee Bradley Baker ) adjusting to their new lives in San Francisco as official Starfleet cadets. Some of them (namely, Rok-Tahk) are thriving within the structured educational system, while others (unsurprisingly, Dal) are struggling to find their strengths. Dal is also still reeling from the loss of Gwyn ( Ella Purnell ) as she embarks on her quest to prevent Solum’s future civil war. Dal and Gwyn remain the heart and soul of Star Trek: Prodigy and neither distance nor time travel chaos nor promotions bring an end to their sweet flirtations.

Admiral Janeway’s ( Kate Mulgrew ) quest to find Chakotay ( Robert Beltran ) continues throughout the season, and it honestly delivers one of the most satisfying storylines for these characters by paying off seven seasons of their dynamic from Voyager . Whether you wanted Janeway and Chakotay together romantically or preferred for them to remain just friends, you’ll be happy with how their reunion and the preceding antics are handled. With Hologram Janeway in Season 1, Star Trek: Prodigy felt like a spiritual successor to Voyager , but Season 2 is closer to a true continuation of that series, as Dal and his team are assigned aboard USS Voyager-A with Admiral Janeway at the helm and the Doctor ( Robert Picardo ) in sickbay.

Star Trek: Prodigy

A group of enslaved teenagers steal a derelict Starfleet vessel to escape and explore the galaxy.

‘Star Trek: Prodigy’ Turns Wesley Crusher Into the Doctor

Across the first handful of episodes, Dal and the team face some pretty dire time-travel mayhem that sees Gwyn nearly erased from existence and the terrifying Loom threatening to eat up a host of timelines. For a series that is aimed at seven year olds, Star Trek: Prodigy is incredibly smart about how it introduces the concepts of quantum realities, temporal mechanics, and everything else that comes with jumping across timelines, jettisoning through wormholes, and coming face-to-face with the evil versions of Janeway and Chakotay in the Mirror Universe. But perhaps the most exciting wibbly-wobbly thing that Season 2 does is finally turn Wesley Crusher (Wil Wheaton) into a roguish time traveler , following through on that Star Trek: Picard Season 2 tag that felt like it was going to get lost to time itself.

About halfway through the season, Wesley is revealed to be “the entity” that has been guiding Dal and the team (but specifically Murf) through their time travel antics. He's like Star Trek’s answer to Doctor Who , complete with a world-weary attitude that comes from being burdened with the knowledge of every timeline’s triumphs and tragedies, an upbeat sense of humor to combat that emotional baggage, and a healthy dose of mommy issues. This may actually be the best version of Wesley Crusher we’ve encountered thus far, and it’s made even better by how incredibly realistic the animation is. His character feels real in ways that the series has yet to successfully render Janeway and Chakotay; almost as though Wesley Crusher has jumped between not only timelines but the lines between live-action and animation.

Following her introduction in the back half of Season 1, Asencia ( Jameela Jamil ) proves to be a rather formidable foe for Gwyn. Not only does she ensure that Gwyn barely exists by toying with the timelines, but she also capitalizes on her own knowledge of how things will play out to gain insurmountable power and control on Solum, which threatens to destroy not just Gwyn and the Voyager’s new crew, but the whole of the Federation and their timeline. It’s quite fun to see a villain, who is remarkably similar to one of the young heroes, prove to be such a true threat . The fact that she is able to best even a Traveler like Wesley really underscores just how difficult she is to defeat this season. This plotline also allows for some really beautiful followthrough on Gwyn’s dynamic with her father ( John Noble ) that was first introduced in Season 1, and it heals the wounds left by how terribly he treated her.

Characters Remain At the Forefront of the Storytelling in 'Star Trek: Prodigy' Season 2

Star Trek: Prodigy ’s overarching plot for Season 2 is fixing the broken timelines and ensuring that everyone returns to their rightful place in time, but it also ensures that each character’s individual subplots are given ample time to develop and evolve as the cast grows up before us. At the end of the day, the series is about a ragtag bunch of teenagers who have been thrust into political turmoil and the daily dangers of Starfleet and the Federation, but it’s still a teen drama with all of the dressings of one.

Zero’s subplot is one of the most compelling arcs in Season 2 . From the first episode, Prodigy introduces the Medusan’s desire to be like those around them: able to feel and experience all of life’s little pleasures. There are a lot of throwaway lines about wishing they could know what touch feels like, some of which are met with empathizing from the Doctor, while other moments are just pining for those connections. Early on in the season, Zero forms an unexpected connection with the newcomer Maj’el ( Michaela Dietz ), a young Vulcan aboard Voyager-A who becomes a quick ally to the former crew of the Protostar. By Episode 8, Zero gets their chance to experience life as a caporal being when the crew arrives on a mysterious planet occupied by fellow Medusans. Zero gets a few episodes to fully enjoy all of life’s little pleasures within this body before tragedy strikes, forcing them back into their metallic container. Fortunately, they receive a much-needed upgrade that allows them to still feel touch (including Maj’el’s). The entire plotline feels so very Trek, as it grapples with themes of existence and what makes for a fulfilled one. It’s heartening to have a series aimed at a younger demographic that is so unafraid to tackle such larger-than-life themes with so much heart.

Another notable subplot is Chakotay’s. When Dal and co. finally come to his rescue, he’s been marooned for roughly a decade, in a very “New Earth”-style situation, and he’s very closed off and hardened by what he’s faced. As with everyone who encounters the former crew of the Protostar, Dal and his friends inject a much-needed dose of hope into Chakotay’s life, which pushes him to reflect on things. This plotline also allows Prodigy to explore grief through the loss of Chakotay’s first officer, Adreek ( Tommie Earl Jenkins ), which further forces him to face the situation head-on and process how it might affect the relationships around him. And because Season 2 relies heavily on bouncing around through different timelines , it also means we get to enjoy storylines where Chakotay doesn’t make it off Solum and how that affects Janeway; how Dal and co. are processing the loss of Hologram Janeway; and what it might be like for Chakotay to face off against a truly evil version of himself (courtesy of the one and only Mirror Universe).

How Does ‘Star Trek: Prodigy’ Season 2 End?

There is no guarantee that Star Trek: Prodigy will receive a much-deserved third season ( or a seventh season ), which doesn’t make sense considering how incredible Season 2 is. Despite ending with a tease about what might lie ahead for these characters, the final episode feels like a bittersweet goodbye . It features a beautiful montage of some of the best and brightest scenes from across the two seasons, as the timeline is knit back together, and crisis is averted, and it’s a tear-jerker, despite being a joy-filled moment.

With the time travel chaos in the rearview mirror, Admiral Janeway has new plans for her band of proteges . She, alongside Chakotay and the Doctor, summons the newly minted Starfleet ensigns to the shipyard to see the brand-new U.S.S. Protostar that has been deemed “only suitable for exploration.” Luckily, she’ll fly in a new pilot program that Janeway is putting together, and we’re looking at the crew who will become a “beacon of light” wherever they travel, much as they have been a beacon of light to this franchise for the last three years. While Dal has spent forty episodes envisioning himself as the captain of his own ship—just as he was aboard the Protostar—he comes to realize that his true place is as the first officer to Captain Gwyndala. It’s a natural progression from the dynamics first laid out in the premiere, and a perfect reflection of an era of Star Trek first established by Voyager .

Star Trek: Prodigy begs the question: what is Paramount doing with the Star Trek IP, if they aren’t going to wholeheartedly embrace the series that are doing Star Trek best? It may be a series aimed at children, but aren’t they the future of all franchises? Shouldn’t we be investing in them, capturing their interests, and leading them into the storied halls of a franchise that has so much to offer? Prodigy isn’t the only Star Trek property that’s been left with a giant question mark above its future. It’s unclear if Paramount+ ever intends to follow up the masterpiece that was the final season of Star Trek: Picard , but at least Star Trek: Prodigy delivers a moment that fans were desperately hoping to see. As the final episode of Season 2 draws to a close, Wesley takes Janeway’s advice and drops in to see his mother, Beverly Crusher ( Gates McFadden ), who introduces him to his baby brother, Jack Crusher. It’s a beautiful moment that really underscores how well Prodigy has striven to connect all the various Star Trek series in unexpected ways.

This may not be goodbye for good, but Star Trek: Prodigy Season 2 certainly feels like a goodbye for now. However, we part ways knowing that these kids are out there spreading the joy they’ve brought for two seasons, and at the end of the day, this franchise has always had endless potential. Whether it returns for Season 3, in a novel or comic, or ten years down the line in live-action, Star Trek: Prodigy has delivered top-tier storytelling that deserves to be remembered as some of the best this franchise has to offer.

Star Trek: Prodigy Season 2 sees Dal and co. face off against timeline-eating monsters and reunite with beloved characters from Star Trek: Voyager.

  • Season 2 balances the nostalgia of bringing in more Star Trek: Voyager and The Next Generation characters with the cast of Prodigy.
  • The animation feels even more elevated compared to Season 1.
  • The plot comes to a natural conclusion while leaving the door open for future adventures.
  • The storylines deliver so much: heartbreak, grief, love, friendship, and the core themes that make this series one of the best.

Star Trek: Prodigy is streaming now on Netflix.

Prodigy’s Shocking Ending Connects (Nearly) All of Modern Star Trek Canon

Let’s dig into the memory banks.

The Loom attacks in 'Star Trek: Prodigy.'

The biggest Star Trek binge in franchise history has arrived. Netflix dropped all 20 episodes of Star Trek: Prodigy Season 2 on July 1 , which led to a shocking and surprisingly open-ended finale. In addition to a time travel plot and a guest character who connects Prodigy to several other eras of Star Trek, the last episode, “Ouroboros Part II,” also syncs up with several major plot points from Star Trek: Picard . In fact, Prodigy’s finale helps make various aspects of Picard more explicable in the tapestry of modern Trek.

Here’s what the final moments of Prodigy mean for the Star Trek timeline, and how the show is set up for a hypothetical Season 3. Spoilers ahead.

Prodigy Season 2’s ending sets up Picard Season 1

The new crew of the USS Prodigy in the finale of 'Star Trek: Prodigy' Season 2

The new crew of yet another new starship.

After defeating the Loom and Asencia, Gwyn, Rok, Dal, Jankom, Zero, Ma’jel, and Murf all find themselves back at Starfleet Academy. Finally, it looks like Star Trek’s Boxcar Children will get their happy ending, but no. It’s First Contact Day 2385, and as everyone in Starfleet celebrates, longtime fans know what’s coming. In Picard Season 1, April 5, 2385, is when Synths go rogue and attack the Utopia Planitia Shipyards on Mars. We saw this from a few different points of view in Picard , but the focus was on how it impacted Jean-Luc Picard. Here we see it from the perspective of the Protostar crew, various young people at Starfleet Academy, and the inner circle of Starfleet Command itself.

This leads to a few interesting and revealing references. Because of the Synth Attack, Admiral Jellico (Ronny Cox) makes it clear that “Starfleet Command has been asked to scale back and cease all exploration and focus on protecting our own planetary citizens.” This means the Romulan Evacuation has been canceled. As established in Picard , Jean-Luc was spearheading the Evacuation and resigned from Starfleet when it shut down. Now we know that the person who told Picard to quit was Jellico. In the Prodigy finale, Jellico says, “I have already informed Admiral Picard. He didn’t take it well, to say the least.”

This revelation is ironic. In The Next Generation's two-parter, “Chain of Command,” it was Jellico who took command of the Enterprise-D while Picard was on a secret mission. While Jellico isn’t technically a bad officer, the fact that he accepted Picard’s resignation in 2385 only adds to how furious Jean-Luc must have been.

Starfleet uniforms, combadges, and more

Raffi (Michelle Hurd) and Picard (Patrick Stewart) in 'Picard' Season 1.

The uniform style seen in Picard Season 1 has been retroactively explained in the Prodigy Season 2 finale.

The impending Romulan Supernova doesn't originate with Picard Season 1 but the first J.J. Abrams reboot movie, where Spock was trying to help the Romulans avert the catastrophe and ultimately traveled back into an alternate timeline. In Prodigy, as Janeway, Jellico, and other Starfleet admirals discuss the future, there’s a mix of different uniform styles on display. Janeway is wearing the 2385-style uniform that Picard and Raffi wore in Picard Season 1’s flashbacks, while other characters wear a style closer to what we’ve seen throughout Prodigy . Jellico even lampshades the conflicting styles in this era, saying, “We don’t even have enough combadges to upgrade half the fleet.” These are small details, but this scene does a lot of work to tie Prodigy, Picard, and the Abrams films together.

The Crusher brothers meet

Jack Crusher and Jean-Luc Picard in 'Picard' Season 3.

Jack Crusher (Ed Speleers) and his father, Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart), in Picard Season 3.

Before everything goes sideways on Mars, we see Wesley Crusher (Wil Wheaton) visit his mom, Beverly Crusher (Gates McFadden), on Earth, where Beverly introduces Wesley to his then-new brother, Jack Crusher. There, in 2385, Jack is a toddler, but by 2401, he’ll be in his twenties and become an essential part of Picard Season 3.

“We wanted Wesley to meet Jack,” co-showrunner Kevin Hageman told Inverse before Prodigy Season 2’s launch. “At the time, the [ Picard producers] were curious what we were doing with Wesley.”

Will there be a Star Trek: Prodigy Season 3?

The USS Protostar (and also the USS Prodigy) in 'Star Trek: Prodigy.'

The USS Prodigy has arrived.

The final moments of Prodigy Season 2 reveal that the crew of the destroyed Protostar is being given another ship of the same class dubbed the USS Prodigy . This is notable because while the series is called Prodigy , the Season 2 finale is the first time the word references a starship.

Janeway gives everyone “field commissions,” making them all defacto Starfleet officers, and sends the crew on a mission of exploration despite Starfleet’s concerns. She explains: “As the Federation’s borders are receding, it's of the utmost importance that you are a beacon of light to those beyond our reach.”

There’s also an unexpected switch in commanding officer. Since Season 1, Dal (Brett Gray) has acted as captain, but he willingly hands command over to Gwyn (Ella Purnell). So as Prodigy Season 2 ends, it’s Gwyn who bodly leads the crew to where no one has gone before.

There are currently no concrete plans for Prodigy Season 3. In conversation with Inverse , the Hageman brothers emphasized that there’s “a lot of dreaming,” though it seems possible the Prodigy’s adventures could continue in another iteration of Trek beyond this series. But as of right now, the crew has been given a massive reset button and the chance to adventure across the Final Frontier.

Star Trek: Prodigy Season 2 is streaming on Netflix.
