Star Trek: Prodigy Season 1 Episode 5 will see how Dal’s team will continue to survive on an alien planet. They don’t have any means to go back with their ship meeting with destruction. Gwyn tried to run away by leaving everyone behind, but it didn’t work. Now, this planet they are stranded on, tortures them by showing their deepest desires. So it would be mentally challenging unless someone comes to their rescue. The second thing to worry about is if Diviner makes his way to rescue his daughter Gwyn who is at this point with them.
So Dal’s team had Gwyn under their guard and were keeping their distance away from Diviner. But a habitable planet got its sights. Janeway suggested as cadets, it is their job to explore the new planets and look for a place for life to thrive. Although Dal didn’t want to go initially, he did. With the entire team away, Gwyn decided to use this opportunity to escape. What she and Dal’s team didn’t know is about the dangers this planet has on its own.
Star Trek: Prodigy S01 E04 Recap
Previously on Star Trek: Prodigy Season 1, Dal’s team was keeping themselves away from the Diviner. Especially with the fact that they had Diviner’s daughter Gwyn under their guard. Amidst this, Janeway told them about an M-Class planet they should check out. It might be suitable for life. Since they are cadets, it’s protocol to explore new planets. Dal wasn’t quite happy with going to an M-Class planet. Still, he was forced to go. Before the team could leave for exploration, just in case for protection, Janeway introduced the team to some heavy weapons that may come in handy on an alien planet.
So the team did land, and they left Janeway and Murf behind with Gwyn behind bars. With the devices they had, the team divided their ways to explore this planet which is not supposed to have any intelligent lifeform. As they were busy with the same, Gwyn broke free and started plotting her escape through the ship. She even went on to reset Janeway in order to make things smooth for her. Thus contacting her father farther away informing of her escape.
Coming to Dal’s team, they did discover lives on this planet. The only thing is, it was all part of a mirage. While everyone bought into that lie, Dal managed to recognize it. He saw his parents and Janeway talking to him. Janeway is a hologram who can’t leave the ship, so he realizes that the planet is just showing an individual what he desires. The moment he decides to walk away, the veins of this planet start attacking him. Thanks to one of his weapons, he managed to break free.
Similarly, one by one, Dal went on to rescue his friends to get off the planet. At the same time, Gwyn felt the same wrath of the planet but was still willing to escape with the ship. In the process, she got caught up, and the ship went on for destruction. She made a last-minute escape, but now the entire team was stranded on this alien planet.
