As part of the Star Trek Universe panel at New York Comic Con we’ve got our first look at the mid-season return of Star Trek: Prodigy. The series has been confirmed for an October 27 return with its next block of episodes from season 1.

The trailer confirms the return of Ronny Cox as the legendary Admiral Edward Jellico. The character was last seen in live-action in Star Trek: The Next Generation during the two-part “Cain of Command” storyline. The then captain of the Cairo was mentioned during an episode of Star Trek: Lower Decks as having been promoted to admiral.

A brand new synopsis for the back half of the season reads:

In the remaining Star Trek: Prodigy season one episodes, as the hopeful crew makes their way toward Starfleet, their dreams are threatened when they discover the U.S.S. Protostar harbors a weapon designed to tear the United Federation of Planets apart. To make matters worse, the U.S.S. Dauntless is on a manhunt for the Protostar as the real Vice Admiral Janeway is eager to uncover what happened to her missing former First Officer Chakotay. With these two ships on a collision course and destruction on the horizon, the fate of the Alpha Quadrant hangs in the balance.

Developed for TV by Kevin and Dan Hageman, Star Trek: Prodigy stars Brett Gray, Ella Purnell, Angus Imrie, Rylee Alazraqui, Dee Bradley Baker and Jason Mantzoukas. The series also marks the return of Kate Mulgrew as a holographic version of Captain Janeway.
