Star Trek: Prodigy - Season One, Volume One is a DVD Region 1 release featuring the first 10 episodes of the first season of Star Trek: Prodigy.

A four-pack of character art cards, each of which with information on how the USS Protostar crew interacted with Starfleet protocols, was included in the set as a physical bonus.

No separate versions of this specific release were issued in the other regions, meaning they had to do with Region 1 imports. This however, is a decreasing hindrance for customers in these regions, as the more recent disc players (the Blu-ray players in particular) have done away with the region geo-restriction hardware encoding/modification – aside from the circumstance that the vast majority of players had always been able to play the NTSC, PAL as well as the SECAM television formats.

Summary[]

Star Trek: Prodigy follows the intergalactic adventures of six teenagers as they try to escape from their cruel past and look to the stars for hope and salvation aboard an abandoned Federation starship. These outcasts know nothing about the ship they have commandeered – a first in the history of Star Trek – but over the course of their adventures together, they are introduced to Starfleet and the ideals it represents. Created by Emmy Award winners Kevin and Dan Hageman (Trollhunters), this 2-disc set includes more than 75 minutes of exclusive Special Features with producers, writers, designers, and actors introducing the Star Trek canon to a new generation of fans.

Background information[]

  • This home video release saw a from the fan's perspective unwelcome return of the "market discrimination" phenomenon. North American customers had to await the release of the second half of the season on a separate physical home video format release later that year on 26 September. In stark contrast, it was also announced that the UK and Germany (and thus the EU) could expect a complete season release in both formats on 25 September and 5 October respectively, adding insult to injury to the American fanbase.
  • By way of consolation for North American customers, it was concurrently announced that digital purchase of the entire first season was now made possible through the usual array of digital vendors, such as Prime Video, the iTunes Store, and others. [1]
