Perhaps the most talked-about part of the painting has been addressed Piccardduring which Patrick Stewart, Gates MacFadden (Dr. Beverly Crusher), and executive producers Alex Kurtzman and Rod Roddenberry appeared and offered some insight into what would happen, according to TrekMovie.com. The full panel, hosted by Lea Thompson (who directed two episodes of season two), is included below.

The painting not only debuted a new teaser tractorShe revealed many new facts about the last season of the series. One of the more interesting aspects is the confirmation that not only will the Enterprise E NCC-1701-E be seen in the new season, there will be more than one. “There’s more than one project and that makes it a little complicated,” Stewart said when asked if he’s ever sitting in the Enterprise captain’s chair again. “But we’ve been going back to the original Enterprise for a while.” While we assume this means Enterprise-E (last seen in Star Trek: Enemies), it could mean that an older organization has appeared, and it may have been shut down. Piccard Season 2 confirmed that the saucer from Enterprise-D (which crashed in Star Trek: Generations) to the ground for display in the museum, so that it can also be seen. Stewart mentioned walking the carpet again on the bridge, a feature of old ships.

Worf in particular looks very different from what we saw last time. Kurtzman also noted that the season will feature a female villain who dominates the entire season, and will have an effect much like that of Khan’s Ricardo Montalbán in the original series and Star Trek II: Wrath of Khan.

Stewart and McFadden also had a mini panel of sorts with Entertainment Weekly, where they discussed the impact of Star Trek and the relationship of Picard and Crusher. Stewart also pointed out to Entertainment Weekly that what we’ll see isn’t just a file next generation Reuniting for the sake of nostalgia, but Season 3 is an all-new story that will bring all the Enterprise crew back together. In a surprising statement, Stewart seemed to suggest that we might not see all the characters together until later in the season.

Piccard It infuriated longtime fans who felt the series had deviated from the optimistic view of the future of the original Roddenberry. Star Trek series and next generationAnd it became very sarcastic and dark. according to rotten tomatoesAlthough 86% of critics agreed with Picard, only 40% of fans voted with them. They were also upset that the only constant of TNG Stewart himself, who was also more pessimistic, and almost disappointed with Picard, was a far cry from the character they had known before. They missed the dynamic of the original cast, and it looks like Season 3 is trying to correct that. Fortunately, Kurtzman promises that this won’t just be a cameo from TNG It casts, as we’ve seen earlier, but rather “important roles” that are vital to the story. “We wanted to whet the appetite a little bit to see them get back together. So at the start of the season, the crew is in different places around the galaxy… and slowly we see them get together,” he said. The panel also revealed that Brent Spiner (who is not in the trailer) will indeed be returning in a new role, although it was not mentioned who would play him. Datta Altan played Inju Song and Adam Song during the first two seasons.

He also indicated that he may play the role of Picard again after this season, if a movie comes up with the right story together, he will eagerly play him again.
