Picard NOT boldly gone...

Patrick Stewart has said in a recent press conference promoting his new series Eleventh Hour that there have been "talks" with Paramount executives of his possible return to Star Trek. Stewart considers the talks "serious", but as he's contracted to the Royal Shakespeare Company for the next 16 months nothing will happen before then.

So I'll be back with more news of this in March 2007.

Ah yes I can see the storyline right now , Capt Picard and Co return to fight the ghost of a recently flogged dead horse

Either that or the ravages of age. Good old Granny Troi.

Lt. Colonel Creedon said...

Is it my imagination or have the Next Generation cast aged more badly than the Original cast (deceased ones aside that is!)

sith apologist said...

More quickly, rather than badly.

Vaughan said...

I think even the deceased ones might look better than Rikers ass which is so big it actually takes up the entire screen for some scenes(please see Enterprise finale for some examples)

sith apologist said...

The scene where he got Worf to cover him was, frankly, disturbing.

Lt. Colonel Creedon said...

What?

sith apologist said...

As he went to leap into the tube I think. The way he lumbered across screen ...

Lt. Colonel Creedon said...

Worf wasn't in the ENTERPRISE finale. Are you referring to NEMESIS?

sith apologist said...

It shows how right I am that you can spot from my deliberately vague reference!

Patrick Stewart can't make a film now, he's too busy plugging Huddersfield University on TV :-\
