Star Trek: Picard Finally Reveals The Enterprise’s New Captain

Star Trek: Picard Finally Reveals The Enterprise’s New Captain
Star Trek: Picard has brought back various former stars from The Next Generation alongside Patrick Stewart’s titular Jean-Luc, but the beloved Enterprise itself has not featured on the series to date. Tie-in novel The Last Best Hope by Una McCormack has now hit shelves, though, and it reveals one big thing that fans have been itching to know: the identity of the current captain of the iconic starship. And it’s a familiar character.

In the Star Trek: Picard – Countdown comics, Picard spoke with Geordi La Forge, who helped construct the Romulan rescue fleet, about the new Enterprise captain and it was clear that it was someone they both trusted and could rely on. In this new novel, it’s finally stated that it’s none other than Worf. This will mean a lot to fans of the character, too, as it once looked like he would never get

9 'Star Trek: Picard' Easter Eggs From Episode 5

9 'Star Trek: Picard' Easter Eggs From Episode 5
[This story contains spoilers for Star Trek: Picard, season one, episode five.]

This week's new episode of Star Trek: Picard made some Deep Space Nine fans very happy. And some Voyager fans, too, by bringing to life what is essentially Picard and Seven of Nine fan fiction. 

"Stardust City Rag" is both a shot in the arm narratively for the series so far and a dramatic gut punch, thanks to the conflict between Picard and Seven and their shared pasts as former Borg. As the two iconic Trek characters plot to pull off an elaborate caper on the ...

‘Star Trek: Picard’ Review: Episode 2 Suggests the Unfortunate Future of ‘All Good Things…’ May Yet Happen
[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “Star Trek: Picard” Episode 2, “Maps and Legends.”]

When is “Star Trek: Picard” going to start?

Yes, we’re two episodes into the new CBS All Access series, but most of what’s unfolded so far feels like elaborate table setting for adventures to come. The question is, how much longer is this table setting going to last?

Episode 2, titled “Maps and Legends,” is merely a continuation of the premiere installment. It’s a serialized show, of course, so that’s to be expected. But together these two episodes are like the “Issue 0” of a comic-book run: a prologue, rather than the adventure itself.

This is where showrunner Michael Chabon’s literary background is both a blessing and a curse: In his script with Akiva Goldsman for “Maps and Legends,” there is a novelistic richness of character, for certain, but also an over-emphasis on dialogue that you can visualize working on the page — but,

‘Star Trek: Picard’ Review: The Great Beyond

‘Star Trek: Picard’ Review: The Great Beyond
“Engage.”

This was the simple command that Captain Jean-Luc Picard uttered so often throughout the seven-season run of Star Trek: The Next Generation — the final word before the starship Enterprise headed off on a new adventure. But engage is also what so many recent TV revivals fail to do. They don’t connect with the old material in any meaningful way so much as they strain to recreate it exactly as it was. They’re brand management more than they are storytelling — unapologetic bids for attention in an overcrowded TV landscape,

Star Trek: 10 Most Hilarious DS9 Memes

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine premiered during the heyday of the Trek revival. It ran on the heels of The Next Generation in 1993 and its success led to the creation of Voyager in 1995. It was a groundbreaking show. Not only was it the first Trek set on a space station instead of a starship, but it also featured the first African-American protagonist. It was a ratings success at the time but it remains an often overlooked and underrated member of the Star Trek family.

In the Star Trek family, Deep Space Nine would be the goth child. It's dark. It's contemplative. It takes to task the institutions framed as infallible in other shows. It's secretly a big softie. It has some of the best storylines in Star Trek history. It also has some of the best memes.

TV Episodes To Watch In Remembrance Of The Star Trek Legends Who Passed Away In 2019

2019 was a rough year for those who worked on the Star Trek franchise and its fans.

Many people who were part of Star Trek's mission to "explore strange new worlds ..." passed away.

In their honor, let's take a look back at some of their finest TV adventures.

D.C. Fontana

Star Trek wouldn't be the Star Trek we know and love without D.C. Fontana. She wrote many of Star Trek's best episodes and shaped its most iconic character, Spock. She also wrote for Star Trek: The Animated Series, Star Trek: The Next Generation, and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

The Fontana penned Star Trek Season 2 Episode 15 is great as a standalone story. It may also be the franchise’s most influential episode. Star Trek: Discovery drew a lot of inspiration from the Spock family dynamic Fontana created in that episode.

René Auberjonois obituary

American actor and singer best remembered for his roles in the 1970 film M*A*S*H and TV’s Star Trek and Boston Legal

The actor René Auberjonois, who has died aged 79 of cancer, had a distinctive face – beaky, birdlike, inquisitive – and a gift for comic haughtiness. His biggest successes came on television: as well as appearing in guest roles on everything from The Rockford Files to Grey’s Anatomy, Starsky and Hutch to Frasier, he was a regular on three popular and vastly different shows, each of which required him to play variations on his stuffed-shirt persona.

In the sitcom Benson, a spin-off from the irreverent 1970s television hit Soap, he was the prissy, hypochondriac chief of staff to a Us governor; he joined the show in its second season in 1980 and remained on board until its cancellation six years later. He was seen throughout the seven seasons of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993-99) as Odo,

René Auberjonois Remembered by ‘Star Trek: Deep Space Nine’ Castmate Nana Visitor

René Auberjonois Remembered by ‘Star Trek: Deep Space Nine’ Castmate Nana Visitor
René came into my life the way he did for so many others; I loved his performance on “Benson” and looked for him in movies and TV ever after. As a young actor, I could see every inch of him was trained to tell stories: His body, face and voice moved with ease and authority. I wanted to be like that. I would watch other actors I admired in those early days and play the game of “Who would you want to sit next to at dinner if you got the chance?” and René was always on that list.

After working with him on “Deep Space Nine” for seven years of long days and nights, and then 20 years of doing “Star Trek” conventions around the world with him, I was lucky enough to spend many dinners with him. And he was even more fascinating as a friend than I could have imagined.

First of all, William Shatner may not have played Captain Kirk opposite Auberjonois’ Odo but the pair were still firm friends off-camera and The Original Series legend took to Twitter to say he would always cherish the “wonderful friendship” they shared.
