Prodigy Season 2 Brings Back Robert Picardo As The Doctor


To remind readers, the final episode of “Voyager,” called “Endgame” (May 23, 2001), flashed forward to a possible future wherein the U.S.S. Voyager managed to return to Earth, with 20 years having already passed. Janeway, regretting a decision she made decades before, steals a time travel widget and goes back in time to the “present” of “Voyager” to confront her younger self. The older Janeway orders the younger Janeway to make use of Borg technology to get back to Earth faster, although the younger Janeway is a little miffed that her older self would be so reckless with time travel.

In that alternate future, audiences saw the Doctor back on Earth with a wife, although little information was given about her. After the younger Janeway returned to Earth earlier, that alternate version of the Doctor was presumably erased from history. Little was seen of the Doctor after the events of “Endgame.”

“Prodigy” sees the Doctor still serving in Starfleet, wearing an updated uniform, and standing on the bridge of the Voyager-A with Admiral Janeway in command. He is the chief medical officer on board the new Voyager. Importantly, the Doctor is still played by Robert Picardo, reprising his role. Picardo is now 70 and he sounds a little older than he did in 2001. However, thanks to the magic of animation, the Doctor hasn’t aged a day.

Because the Voyager-A is a flying school, the Doctor seems to serve as an assistant principal of sorts. He’s also the one who directs Dal (Brett Gray), Rok-Tahk (Rylee Alazraqui), Zero (Angus Imrie), Murf (Dee Bradley Baker), and Jankom Pog (Jason Mantzoukas) to their stations on the ship.
