The third and final season of Star Trek: Picard was great. It was great fun. It zipped along at an incredible pace. It was completely shameless with its ‘memberberries deployment and we just didn’t care. We strapped in and enjoyed the crowd-pleasing ride, served up to us in an unfussy family style, and massive portions, with bottomless booze on the side.

Finally, The Next Generation had got the send-off it deserved, and we ate it up.

Immediately there was fan talk that seemed to birth a potential spin-off show – Star Trek: Legacy. This would continue the adventures of the now Enterprise-G (formerly USS Titan) with Captain Seven of Nine (Jeri Ryan), first officer Raffaela ‘Raffi’ Musiker (Michelle Hurd), captain’s counselor Jack Crusher (Ed Speleers), and several of the other younger characters introduced in Picard season 3, such as the LaForge daughters.

It seemed like fair game. So, of course, it’s not happening. Creatives in Hollywood giving fans what they actually want? We can’t have that at all! Last time they tried it, it was Picard season 3 and that just made everyone else look bad.

Picard season 3 showrunner, the man who did the unthinkable and followed his instincts as to what fans might actually enjoy, Terry Matalas recently spoke to TrekMovie and confirmed no movement:

“There’s not [any movement]. They have Star Trek that they are making and they only have so much money and streaming space. There’s currently not, but we’re looking forward to whatever the Star Trek universe brings … and never say never.”

And what Star Trek are they currently working on? Let’s take a quick look:


OK. Let’s talk to an adult again please. When asked if a 2 hour TV movie version of Star Trek: Legacy could happen instead, Matalas goes on to say:

“Look, anything is possible. We certainly wouldn’t be ‘Oh no, we aren’t going to do a movie.’ For me, I would just need this crew, I would need this cast, and as long as that was a possibility, we would figure something out, yeah. A series is obviously ideal because there are so many stories to tell. And the 25th century in general in ‘Star Trek’ is such a rich thing.”

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds and the animated Star Trek: Lower Decks will soon be all there is of Trek on TV when Discovery ends and Section 31 airs.
