"My favorite episode is "Inner Light". It was a beautiful script, which for me was almost entirely located away from the Enterprise-and it's crew! And because I was given the chance to perform what Picard would have been like if his life experience had been different.
Stewart played the role in the TV series Star Trek: The Next Generation and in several movies, the most recent of which was Star Trek: Nemesis, which came out in 2002.
During a Q&A on Facebook to promote his latest movie Match, a fan asked Stewart if he would like to play Picard again, with the actor responding: “Absolutely, if it were a really good script. But, the poor soul is getting old and long in the tooth. He would probably need some help mounting his horse unlike the youthful captain of 30 years ago.”
He was then asked who could play a younger Picard if he could not play the role. He responded “I would have to say it must be the actor, my son, Daniel Stewart.”
Star Trek: The Next Generation (Tng) seemed like a long shot, no one had a lot of faith that it would catch on. The Original Series was so great and had developed such a loyal following that people doubted whether Gene Roddenberry could capture that lightening in a bottle again.

The first two seasons of the show weren’t bad, but it wouldn’t be until season three (a symptom of most post-tos series) that the show really took off and became the epic space adventure we all know and love. Tng lasted seven seasons for a total of 178 episodes and ended its run with “All Good Things” on May
