Really good.

The new Paramount + and Nickelodeon show follows five children who are imprisoned on a dark planet in an unexplored part of the galaxy. They escape their imprisonment and race across the planet to find a missing experimental spacecraft buried beneath the planet’s surface and have never heard of Starfleet or the Federation.

They get on the ship, but they can’t make it work. With the prison guards on their heels, they suddenly stumble upon a training hologram in the form of Captain Kathryn Janeway from the Voyager series. It is up to Janeway’s hologram to teach them how to navigate the cosmos, as they are chased by Diviner (John Noble) and Drednok (Jimmi Simpson) who want the ship for themselves.
