Hello Star Trek fans! Welcome to Star Trek Prodigy Season 1 Episode 6: Kobayashi. This is an episode full of Trek lore and Easter eggs!! Well, not so much Easter eggs as just flat out references to previous characters and previous incarnations of Trek. It's a must see for Trek fans!
We pick up the action this week right where we left off in the mid-season finale. The crew comes flying out of the protostar-induced warp with everyone screaming. They have managed to travel 4000 light years in a few seconds (or about 7 weeks if we're watching our own calendars)! They've escaped the Diviner, so they've got more time to spend exploring the new ship. Dal ends up running the Kobayashi Maru simulation with some well known characters as his bridge crew - this is maybe the coolest part of the episode.
Meanwhile, Gwyn, Janeway and Zero are digging into the encrypted memory banks of the computer. Turns out the ship is hiding some interesting info from everyone (including Janeway)!
If you haven't heard our 6-year old correspondent Maahi (from our previous episodes), then this is the time to tune in. She always tells us what she thinks about the episode and what (if anything) she's learned from it!
