Picard’s Showrunner gives clues about the presented ship of the 3rd season and more – TrekMovie.com

The third season of Star Trek: Picard it has already been filmed and the return of the main cast will be found in it Star Trek: The Next Generation. Now showrunner Terry Matalas is giving more hints about the final chapter Picard.

Not Stargazer

This weekend, show host Terry Matalas shared a short video from the set of the third season, which began filming right after the second season ended last September. The video shows the crew being informed not to sit in the chairs of the bridge unless their name is Terry or Doug (director Doug Aarniokoski).

Since the start of filming for the third season last September, Matalas has shared pictures of the bridge and other Starfleet ship kits that will be a major part of the third season. In the introduction of the second season and closer, we saw the USS Stargazer, which led to the assumption that the above video and all images shared during the production of the third season were also Stargazer, assuming the central ship for the third season. However, this weekend, when a fan inquired about a video from the start of filming the third season, asking, “Should we take this as an indication that Stargazer is part of the third season?” Matalas discovered “It’s not Stargazer.” Along with that little bomb, he added a little emoticon with a smiling face.

It is clear that the ship shown in the video uses the same set of bridges built for Stargazer and it is difficult to notice any major differences. Remodeling kits for different ships is of course nothing new in Star Trek. This leaves the intriguing question of what kind of ship it could be? And will Stargazer have any role in the third season?

The finale of the second season also raises the question of Seven and Stargazer. Picard gave her a field commission and put her at the helm of the ship in the second season finale. This could be setting up Seven to finally become part of Starfleet for a third season, but is he staying with Stargazer or joining this second ship?

The return of the LPG cast includes another mystery of the character. What role will Brent Spinner play? With Spinner’s LPG character, Data is finally at peace in the first season Picard, a fan suggested that Spinner could play “another Soong” or perhaps Lore, Data’s evil twin brother. Matalas replied, indicating that Spinner would play something else.

A good premise for Spinner’s role in the third season would be the return of his character from the first season of cyberneticist Dr. Altan Inig Soong, who was last seen on Syntha 2399’s home world. “, since he has already played that role. The only clue so far is Spinner’s dialogue, which can be heard in the voice in the video for the announcement of the cast of the third season, which says: “Evolution is not an act of preservation. It’s an addition, “which fits into the character of Altana Soong. However, with Spinner, one never knows what role he could play in Star Trek.

Another fan question that Matalas mysteriously answered this weekend was about the possibility of seeing Larissa in the third season. The finale of the second season ended with Laris and Picard finally reuniting. The opportunity for Picard to express his love was the whole point of Q’s lesson on time travel for this season. Asked if we would “be able to see Larisa and Jean Luc together in Season 3,” Matalas replied “Yes. But…”

As noted in our report earlier this week, Orla Brady stated that she finished her job playing Larissa early during the third season’s production. Therefore, it is possible that Matalas indicates that Laris will appear in the third season, but that is not the main part of the season.
