Nickelodeon's upcoming animated Star Trek series has a title and logo.

Star Trek: Prodigy is centered around "a group of lawless teens who discover a derelict Starfleet ship and use it to search for adventure, meaning and salvation," Nickelodeon and CBS Television Studios announced Thursday during the Star Trek Universe panel at Comic-Con@Home.

The CG-animated series, which is the latest to join the ever-expanding Star Trek TV world, is set to debut on Nickelodeon in 2021. Its aim is to introduce the universe to a younger audience, according to the ViacomCBS-owned network.

The new series joins a Star Trek TV franchise that features CBS All Access' Star Trek: Discovery, Star Trek: Picard and the upcoming animated series Star Trek: Lower Decks as well as the upcoming Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, featuring Captain Pike, Spock and Number One.

A Michelle Yeoh-led spinoff about Section 31 is currently in development.
