From giving you accurate weather forecasting, connecting you to friends and family across the globe, and even helping farmers manage their crops: space exploration and technology have enabled us – Earthlings – in so many ways. And we know there is still more to discover. Join us in celebrating National Space Day!
Established in 1997, National Space Day is observed on the first Friday of May and celebrates the advancements made in space exploration and technology. It’s also a chance to inspire the next generation of space scientists, engineers, and explorers.
Ignite your future Starfleet Academy cadet’s love for space in Star Trek Prodigy: Supernova, and watch them navigate the U.S.S. Protostar through the intergalactic worlds of Orisi, Mirios and Taresse.
FIRST STOP, THE ARID PLANET ORISI
A planet dried of its original beauty, it was once full of natural resources. Like Class-M planet Earth in the 21st century, global warming caused sudden water loss: the temperature rose, sea ice melted, and rainfall rapidly decreased. The planet’s inhabitants paid the price, and now Watchers have settled here, hoarding all the power. But don’t let the hostile settlers stop your cadets! They’ve only just begun.
THEN MOVE ON TO THE COOL PLANET MIRIOS
Similar to Bajor with its Earth-like, blue oceans and seas, Mirios was once a lush water planet, full of colourful coral and other vibrant marine life. The sunstar destabilization reduced the planet to sparse puddles and a relatively limited number of lifeforms. Keeping cool with Dal and Gwyn by their side, your cadets will figure something out, and make their way to Taresse.
END YOUR MISSION IN POLAR PLANET TARESSE
Taresse is in the midst of an ice age, which means snowstorms are common. But it wasn’t always this frosty here: this beautiful, diverse planet was native to Naroans, (inhabitants of Taresse) who were skilled holo-game developers recognised across the galaxy. Cadets will need to fight the chill and focus on the mission.
Watch them hit maximum warp speed as they join Dal and Gwyn on a mission to save their captured crewmates, Jankom Pog, Rok-Tahk, Zero, and Murf while battling deadly robot armies and searching for lost parts of the Protostar to fix its engine, all before a supernova destroys them all.
This National Space Day, get your young cadets to look out for each other, see the stars, and plot their course in Star Trek Prodigy: Supernova. Available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Xbox X|S, and Steam.
