Prodigy’s Next Mission
It would seem that Star Trek: Prodigy is a key focus for Paramount right now! Premiering on October 28th 2021, the show has been an instant hit with audiences young and old. Many view the series as having the potential to really blossom into something fantastic. But fans around the world have fallen in love with the crew of the USS Protostar. However, that might specifically be the character of Murph taking the fame.
Star Trek: Prodigy Supernova looks to capture that excitement of young minds. The game is listed as an action-adventure title that will allow up to two players to take part. Additionally, the game is rated 7+, perfect for us older players to join in if we would like! However, some will be glad to know there is no paid content or planned DLC at this time.
The Plot of the game is as follows…
After the U.S.S. Protostar picks up strange readings from a dying star, Dal and Gwyn must race against time to save their friends, their ship, and an entire planetary system before a supernova destroys them all! Using their unique skills to overcome ingenious puzzles, endure hostile environments and battle deadly robot armies, Dal and Gwyn must save their captured crewmates Jankom Pog, Rok-Tahk, Zero and Murf. But they soon encounter a deadly new enemy, one that will stop at nothing to destroy the U.S.S. Protostar and change the very course of history!Star Trek: Prodigy Supernova – Outright Games
What Can You Do?
You might be asking what can you actually do in the game? Star Trek: Prodigy Supernova takes place onboard the USS Protostar, you’ll be playing with the characters of Dal and Gwyn. Additionally, key features include solo gameplay or 2-player cooperative mode. However, you’ll be able to make First Contact with new alien species as well, no matter how you play.
However, one gameplay element which sticks out is the ability to customize the USS Protostar. I wonder how Hologram Janeway (Kate Mulgrew) might feel about that? Players can collect iconic items from the Star Trek Universe and use them to customize the USS Protostar in-game.
Star Trek is all about exploration, this game is no different. For example, players are going to be able to explore strange new worlds. Additionally, each world will have its own hostile environments, puzzles, challenges and mysteries. However, how you choose to handle them is up to you.
