A group of escaped prisoners finds an abandoned Federation spaceship hidden under tons of rocks and uses it to plan away into the unknown, but not before securing their way by kidnapping one of their guards. This is the beginning of Star Trek: Prodigy, whose untrained crew must acquire the skills to operate and maintain the USS Protostar, even though it has about thirty small components, using only the ship’s Janeway hologram.
Navigating the Delta Quadrant is in itself a dangerous task that the Voyager crew has demonstrated. Still, the biggest and most frightening threat could be their pursuer, a creature with unknown goals and a formidable will that has much to offer. To capture everything again. of the things that have been stolen from him: the seer.
Tars Lamora is a planetary prison on the outskirts of the Delta Beta District, rich in a precious mineral called chimera, extracted from captured slaves, often supplied by Kazon. The guardian of this planetary dungeon is one of the last two surviving members of the Vau N’Akat tribe, and his name is the viewer. A swarm of robotic tail beetles, called guards, act as guard dogs and travel on his command through the mines to imprison or punish them at will. Gwyn’s daughter runs her own business and has learned many of the world’s languages. Still, her leading advisor is a robot named Drednok.
Pronounced by John Noble, The Diviner spends much of its time in a massive pool of fluid or serum that can be shielded by metal bands and appears to serve medical purposes for an unknown disease. Outside the tank, he wears a suit lined with fluid tubes that appear to mimic the beneficial effects of his submerged state. The treatment could be used to compensate for some abnormal injuries. Still, it could also improve some of his physical abilities beyond previous limits, such as B., to increase his physical strength. He also appears to have an innate racial defense against mental invasions that make it difficult for him and his daughter to enter the mind with empathy or telepathy.
He and his daughter have demonstrated an ability called Neuroflux, which allows them to teleport various objects. The Diviner does not fully show this control of the material at this point in the series. Still, there are indications that he is overtaking his daughter. Gwyn has a metal bracelet that can be turned into a thinly curved blade, a rounded shield, and possibly other valuable configurations. Neurolux activation appears visually as bioluminescent bands on the skull and eyes.
One of the most formidable skills of fortune tellers is the henchmen at his disposal, especially the terrifying Major Mechanical Domo known as Drednok. With excellent AI and low voice, the robot bleeds a significant threat. He prefers torture-focused interrogations over subtle manipulation but is also capable of subtle tricks. It has a modular structure and can adopt different formats to the respective conditions. It can take a spider-like bottom, designed for agility and razor, and transform into a precision-anchored laser gun with “enormous power” when not set up as a scary masked figure.
Finally, and perhaps most notably, the contribution of Noble’s unique fringe, Return of the King, which gives The Diviner its true sense of fear. In an interview, the actor claimed that many of his elements to bring the character to life came from the epitome of the Star Trek villain himself, Khan Noonien Singh, who appears as Ricardo Montalban in both the original Star Trek series and The Wrath of Kahn. Played. Swinging between a peak of anger and single-minded determination, The Diviner inspires affection and creates horror in those around him.
It is not yet clear what the viewer is doing for the protostar, as he has access to not only a ship but also a compelling disguise device that can hide the entire criminal colony from tracking, but it has taken years to find and repair. . to its goal. The Protostar crew found something in the technology that was not.
Protostar is also capable of reproducing not only simple foods and gear but also entire ships. Although this uses a significant amount of energy, potential applications of a system that can quickly and efficiently assemble something as complex as a bus, equipped with motors and life support, can be used to organize the molecules in a recyclable way. . The fact that the viewer knows more about the ship than his crew or the public adds a frightening expectation to his research.
The fortune-teller seems to have a personal interest in the survival of his people and has entrusted his daughter with the task of carrying out this legacy. The ship may allow him to do this in a manner not yet determined. As an experimental vessel, it could also replace or improve its dependence on serum vessels or combinations on which it currently appears to be dependent. He also seemed involved in a conversation with Drednok that it was more important for him to restore the ship than save his daughter.
As the fortune teller’s plans unfold, his star hunt and upcoming crew will give him and his henchmen more opportunities to show how far they will go to reach his ultimate goal. In this way, it is expected that he will continue to develop his Khan-style influences that have helped shape a unique and dangerous Star Trek villain.
