Star Trek: Prodigy (2021–…): Season 1, Episode 3 - Starstruck - full transcript

Who is that?

An interesting development.

I'm Kathryn Janeway,
your training advisor.

I'm a hologram based on one
of the most decorated captains

in Starfleet history,

programmed to assist
the "Protostar's" crew

on their journey back
to Federation space.

She's hideous.

Why is her forehead so smooth?

You're no summer peach
either, Tellarite.

Jankom Pog likes her!

What's a Freder--
Fred Erasion?

What Starfleet crew
doesn't know the Federation?

Where's your captain?

Right here!
I am the captain.

And I order you to return us
to Tars Lamora--

we'll have to forgive her.
She's delirious.

Her brain's sick
with space...flu.

I'm in command of this ship.


Quite a vote of confidence.

I'm only here to offer advice

and maintain the "Protostar's"
lower-level functions.

Everything else
is up to your crew.

But I believe
there is something

you aren't being
truthful about.

I can explain.

You see--

It's obvious
you're Starfleet cadets.

No uniforms, no clue.

I can spot greenhorns
a parsec away.

Yes! We are cadets.

Can you remind us
what the Federation does again?

For my crew. Not me.

The United Federation
of Planets.

An interstellar union of
different worlds and species,

with shared principles
of universal liberty,

rights, and equality.

That sounds nice.

Starfleet is the Federation's

for deep space exploration,

on a mission to maintain
peace and freedom,

to explore strange new worlds,
to seek out new civilizations.

To boldly go where no one
has gone before.

This Federation biz sounds,

uh, actually pretty good.

Is such a collective

It is.
Shall I help you plot a course?

all: No?


Well, were we listening
to the same pitch just now?

I like to boldly go.
Or at least I think I do.

I sense an aversion in Dal,

but I cannot clearly
read his mind.

Perhaps if I get
a little closer--oh.

Read it clearly now.

I will not be probing
any further.

We don't need her help.
We can plot our own course.

Which way is Federation space?

Here, in the Alpha
and Beta Quadrants.

Then we want to go
all the way


This place.

I must caution you,

that little red dot
represents a--

Just tell us how
to get there, Holo-nanny.

You're the captain.

♪ ♪

He's not the captain.

Hey, Janeway,
does this ship have a brig?

She said starboard side.

But which side is that?

Dal, why are we lying
about being cadets?

The kid's not wrong.

We just kidnapped
the boss' daughter.

We're floating blindly
through space

in a ship we don't know
how to fly.

This is bad.

The Federation could give us
adequate protection

from the Diviner's tyranny.

Are you all crazy?

Did the oxygen levels drop
in here?

Oxygen level's optimal.

Let me tell you how
the galaxy really works.

This oughta be good.
The Federation?

It's just another name
for someone else in charge.

Janeway sings a nice song,

but I can tell you
from experience,

people in authority lie.

They try to sell you
the good life,

but it's a good life for them,
not us.

Besides, how much protection
are they gonna give

to a bunch of fugitives

who roll up
in their stolen ship?

Take it from me, if it sounds
too good to be true, it is.

You're in charge.
Do you lie to us?

Yes. He lies all the time.

But I lie for us.

Don't think of it
as lying to her,

think of it as playing pretend.

This used to be a Federation
ship, but now, it's our ship.

And as long as we control it,
we're in charge.

Dal has a way with words.

Listen to them
at your own peril.

Don't listen to her.
She's got space madness.

You mean space flu.

♪ ♪

Murf found starboard.

C'mon Zero,
let's take her to the brig.

Uh, it's okay, kid.
What do we do now?

You heard the cap.
It's our ship.

Let's see what
she's got to offer.


I dunno, this is one of
the nicer prisons I've been in.

I meant Gwyn's mind.

Her resistance to my telepathy
must be inherited.

I had hoped to gain an insight
into why her father desires

to obtain this ship.
It's quite the mystery.

I don't need to read her mind
to know

she's picturing herself
blasting me out of an airlock.

That sound about right?

Didn't we just do this?

Oh that's right--but last time
I was in there,

and you were out here.

Wait, is this soundproof?
Can she hear us?

You're an imbecile.
Well, there's your answer.

My father will come for me.

No matter how far you try
to run, he'll hunt you down

and make all of you pay
for taking his daughter.

What's a guy
in a tank gonna do?

Swim at me?

You laugh, yet your mind
is reeling with pure terror.

Good one, Zero! Let's go.

♪ ♪

All I have to do is wait.

♪ ♪

What is the status
of the riots?

We have regained control of

"The Unwanted"
with minimal losses.


♪ ♪

Losing the "Protostar"
and my daughter is not minimal!

Agreed. Shall "The Unwanted"
continue to extract chimerium?

Yes. Exhaust them so they're
too tired to rise up again.

And I'll need every speck
of chimerium for trade

to get my ship back!

Prepare the "REV-12"!

What sort of
mess hall has no mess to eat?

I'm starving.

If you need sustenance,

the food replicator
uses matter conversion

to create any meal
you dare dream up.

Uh, Jankom's
a little light on credit.

As a cadet, you should know
the Federation has moved

past traditional currency.
It's free.

What? Blood truffle biscuits,
sweet radish pie,

and don't skimp
on the sour gravy!

Come to Poggy!

Go on, Rok! Try it out!
What's your favorite food?

I don't know.
I'll just have what you got.

Dream big, Kid. You should
order whatever you want.

Nutri-Goop? That slop they
fed us back in the mines?


It's the only food
I've ever had.

I appreciate a gal
who knows what she likes.

♪ ♪

Check out the bunk room!
Looks cozy.

I suppose communal
sleeping quarters

could accelerate team bonding.

♪ ♪


Ah, Murf, you've settled in.

I look forward to sharing
this experience with you...

from over here.

Perhaps we could be
bunk mates, Dal.


♪ ♪


Look at the Captain's quarters!

Oh man! Whoo!

This bed is kinda lumpy.

I mean, it's kinda lonely
in here,

and I mean come on,
who needs all this view?

Curse of being a captain,
I guess.

I can still read your mind.

How 'bout now?

♪ ♪

Back to mock me, girl?

♪ ♪

For so many years,
you watched them take us...

how they treated us...

why didn't you stop them?

My father told me--I thought
you were criminals.

We're not criminals.

The only crime we ever
committed was getting caught.

♪ ♪

Jankom's just checking
under the hood.

This shiny girl
has two warp cores!

Just one'll take us
to warp nine,

if it don't break us
into a bajillion pieces!

If those are the warp cores,
what is this?


Jankom Pog has no idea.

Red alert. Red alert.
Red alert.

Didn't touch anything!
Wasn't me!

No, that wasn't you, Jankom.

There seems to be
a bigger problem.

Relax, I'm sure this is just
a routine systems check.

Pull it up on screen.

Oh, that does not
look routine.

It's beautiful.
What exactly am I looking at?

Your course has led us
into a binary system

where the gravitational pull
of an orbiting white dwarf

is in the final moments
of tearing apart a red giant.

A dying star.

What a rare and exciting way
to meet our doom!

This right here is why
we shouldn't be in space!

For the record,
I tried to caution you.

Perhaps you'd like my help
to change course, Captain?

Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah.
I see what you're doing.

But this is my ship.
I control it. Be gone.

"Your" ship?
I said "our." Didn't I?

You just couldn't hear it
over all this noise.

Zero, get us out of here!

Attempting to change course.


Appears like we're still
heading straight into it.

Why aren't we
changing course, Z?

It's not me.

We are falling into
the dwarf star's gravity well.

Then warp us out of here.

Doing what you told me to do.

Just a friendly reminder:

using a warp drive
inside a gravity well

may result in unpredictable
and dangerous side effects.

Right, I knew that!

I meant divert all the power
to the impulse engines!

So many buttons!

If you divert all power,
you'd be deactivating--

Victory for Jankom Pog!
Oh wait, where'd the lady go?

♪ ♪


♪ ♪

Even at full impulse power,
the star's gravity

is so strong,
we are being pulled into it.

I've never been
inside a star before!

Dal, I really think
we need Janeway.

We need to be faster--
uh, lighter.

Ditch all non-essential cargo!

Why are you looking at me?
Jankom Pog is essential.

That's debatable.

I mean, dump everything
not bolted down!

Ejecting escape pod one.

Ejecting escape pod two.

Ejecting escape pod three.

Please tell me there are
more escape pods onboard.

There are no more
escape pods onboard.


Would you like
the vehicle replicator

to create a shuttlecraft?

What's a vehicle replicator?

The "Protostar's"
vehicle replicator,

located in the shuttle bay,

designed to quickly create
any means of transport--

Make a shuttlecraft now!

Vehicle replicator

♪ ♪

Are we under attack?


Jankom doesn't
like gettin' jostled!

It seems diverting power
deactivated our shields,

leaving us vulnerable
to space debris.

This just keeps getting better.

Where's our prisoner?

it seems diverting power

included the brig's
containment field.

Find Gwyn!

I--I don't want to.
I want off this ship!

I don't have time
to argue, Rok!


You're the muscle, kid.

Ain't any of us
doing any better.

Divert power from impulse
and get us back our shields.

And brig!

I can't. Something else
is draining power.

A vehicle replicator?
A what?

Shuttle 10% complete.

There you are.

I don't wanna hurt you.

Listen to me.

We're all going to die
if we don't get out of here.

Why should I listen to you?
You never helped us!

You're a bad lady!

You're angry.
I get that.

Whoa, whoa!

Shuttle 90% complete.

For what it's worth,
I'm sorry.

Oh, no.
And now, we're floating.

Okay, we can handle this.

At least ask Janeway to turn
on the air conditioning!

Unless you all want roasted Pog
for dinner.

Murf, got any fantastic
last-minute heroics?

I believe Murf
is eating a chair.

Captain, we need you now.

we'll die.

♪ ♪

I need your help.

You know how to keep
a lady waiting.

How do I get my feet

All you had to do was ask.

Alright, cadets,
let's get to work.


the inertial dampeners

to restore
the artificial gravity.

And where's that?

The controls are on
the operations console.

Ah, found it.
A bit to the left.

Your other left.
That's the one.

Artificial gravity restored.

I am not going to let you
have this again.

I got the prisoner!
That's great, kid.

We've still got problems
up here.

Zero, you should have enough
juice for the shields now.

♪ ♪

Shields are at 80%,
but dropping with every hit.

a sufficient tactical array.

Why not use it

Ooh, Jankom Pog
gets to blow stuff up?

Technically it's

but you get to push the button.

♪ ♪

Okay, she's back in the brig.

Oh, my gosh,
what is that river of fire?

Trillions of tons
of white-hot ionized gas

about to explode.

That sounds worse.

What's the call, Captain?
I don't know.

We've done
everything you've said,

and we're still fighting
to get out.

That's it!
What if we stop fighting

and ride the shock wave?
Let it propel us free?

You were reading my mind.

Now that is another lie.

Uh, full impulse

And do what Zero said.
Ready on my mark! Now!

Thank you.
You saved our lives.

I only nudged you all

You did the rest.

I guess I did know
when to ask for help,

which is what a natural-born
captain would do.

You're welcome!

Nobody thanked you!
Of course he takes credit.

We're goners.

I must say, when
the Federation first formed,

it wasn't pretty.

A collection of species,

entirely unfamiliar
to each other,

different languages,
different cultures,

but with one shared
aspiration--to be better.

I've seen my share
of wayward crews

and I can tell you this--
you've got potential.
