So they start in the Delta Quadrant on the mining asteroid, and they immediately make a beeline to the Alpha Quadrant. That sounds familiar. Are we traveling the same route as Voyager?
Dan Hageman: We won’t be traveling the same route as Voyager. But obviously, they’re going to get a lot of help from the Emergency Training Hologram Janeway. So she has some ideas of where to where to go.
Kevin Hageman: And I think in the Delta Quadrant, they might come across some familiar faces that maybe Voyager came across. Or, as they get closer to the Alpha and Beta quadrant, there might be other familiar faces.
Ben Hibon: And it’s never a straight line, right?
Kevin Hageman: It’s never a straight line now with a bunch of kids behind the wheel, come on.
So does Hologram Janeway have all the knowledge of the Janeway that arrived back on Earth in “Endgame?”
Kevin Hageman: She’s based off the historical records and personality records.
Dan Hageman: But I don’t think every little detail would be in her logs.
But the Protostar was launched after or before Voyager returned home?
Dan Hageman: Oh, it would be after Voyager returned home, I can say that. I can’t get much more detailed about
Kevin Hageman: Because it’s a big secret.
There is something special about this ship, right?
Dan Hageman: Yes, there’s something mysterious about the ship of why it’s there on [the mining asteroid] Tars Lamora. We’ve seen some fan theories out there, but no one’s really got it.
Kevin Hageman: She’s a part of the ship, right?
Does this tie into why there are so many Alpha Quadrant species on Tars Lamora?
Dan Hageman: Not related to the ship, no.
Kevin Hageman: But there are well thought out reasons why they are in our show, and why they’re in the Delta Quadrant.
