Joining the cast of the upcoming animated Star Trek: Prodigy is John Noble (Fringe, Lord of the Rings) and Jimmi Simpson (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Westworld) as “Drednok” and “The Diviner,” respectfully.

Gwyn, a previously announced character voiced by Ella Purnell, happens to be The Diviner’s child. Drednok is The Diviner’s enforcer, a spidery robot who helps his boss find the Protostar.
