    I had a look at the CBS streaming section and it didn't fit there, forgot about the future subforum

    That's...surprising.

    Awful news. I just can't stand Mulgrew.

    Edit - at least it's only animated.

    No worries. Future shows go here until a subforum is made.

    I had the stream running on one screen and doing something on the other and as she was talking about I was like what!!! This is great news, totally unexpected and my interest in this was mild as it was aimed at kids but now I am definitely going to check it out.

    I'm very excited! Picard, Riker, Troi, Data, Seven, Hugh, and now Janeway! Trek's "golden era" is getting a comeback that's not gonna stop soon!

    Why didn't you put Janeway in the thread title? Casting news certainly don't count as spoilers, it would be literally impossible to talk about any upcoming show without mentioning the main character.

    VOY is not my favorite series but Janeway is a good character (for the most part...some odd characterization in the writing) and a very good choice for a show like this. Also, what a cool way to connect the past of the franchise to the future.

    I misread that as '*Hugh legacy character...'

    Well, I guess this narrows it down in regards to which era Prodigy takes place in. Unless it is in the distant future and in fact a holographic Janeway recreation.

    But that's silly. It is literally impossible to keep this a secret, it's not even supposed to be a secret at this point. It was officially announced, she'll be all over the promos when it gets closer to release, everyone will know before the show starts.

    The identity of main cast and the basic premise simply don't count as a spoilers. That's like saying Pattinson as the new Batman is a spoiler. Some information is a necessity when it comes to new shows or movies.

    There were lots of different holo-Janeways to choose from.

    Honestly, it being a hologram - or a Janeway from an ATL - is easier to imagine than it being the real Janeway. It's just hard to imagine Janeway (even if she's retired) having nothing better to do than lead a bunch of teenagers who have stumbled upon an abandoned starship.
