The animated series “Star Trek: Prodigy” is starting the second half of its first season on Paramount+, and series star Kate Mulgrew says fans have a lot to look forward to.

It’s an emotional mission, and it’s a love mission. And we see that her instructions are as promising as they seem, but certainly not before they have great and many adventures on the bridge.
Mulgrew voices both the hologram Janeway and Vice Admiral Janeway from the second half of the second season to find her old friend Chakotay, the former captain of the USS Protostar. According to Mulger, she did a great job of distinguishing between the hologram version and the human version of the character.
“There must be subtlety. There has to be subtlety and separation, there has to be some difference between the characters, otherwise you lose insight,” she says. “Vice Admiral Janeway is alive. She is true. She is in command. And it’s the right time. So you’ll see an even greater display of anger from Vice Admiral Janeway. You are going to enjoy it. You are going to be upset. You are going to be disappointed. She’s about to move. She will be all those things. So everything she says and does has an urgency and a dimension and a texture to it. Hologram Janeway, on the other hand, has a short barometer. She is there to guide as needed. She is there to advise. She is there to guide you to safety.
