With the conclusion of Star Trek: Picard’s third season and, presumably, the program itself, fans are wondering what’s next for the Star Trek franchise.
There is still one more season of Star Trek: Discovery to come, as well as another season of Strange New Worlds and the premiere of a brand-new series called Starfleet Academy.
But what about the Picard crew from Star Trek? Well, one idea is to continue the Star Trek franchise with a spin-off series called Legacy, which would unite new and old characters from the franchise.
Is Star Trek: Legacy happening, and if so, when can we expect it, and who will be in it? Learn more about Star Trek: Legacy right here.
Star Trek Legacy Release Date
According to sources, The cast of Star Trek: Picard seems eager to join a Star Trek: Legacy series and Terry Matalas has stated his interest in creating one. There is only one catch, though.
Matalas has made it apparent that development on the project has ceased, and he has hinted that this is not going to change very soon.
“These shows are expensive to make,” he said to SFX magazine. With Strange New Worlds and Starfleet Academy [both set to premiere in 2024], I can’t imagine Paramount green-lighting a third series without strong financial justification.
I believe their mindset is that they have enough supplies on hand. That’s the thinking, anyway, unless the fans can change their minds.
Since Star Trek: Legacy is not under production at this time, a precise release date is unknown.
Given this, we anticipate a considerable wait before the show airs, should it ever get off the ground. The earliest that Star Trek: Legacy might come out is 2025 at this point.
Who Would Be in the Star Trek Legacy Cast?
From the looks of the post-credits scene in the series finale of Star Trek: Picard, we can assume that John de Lancie’s Q will return for Star Trek: Legacy, along with Jeri Ryan’s Seven of Nine, Michelle Hurd’s Raffi, Ed Speleers’ Jack Crusher, and Sydney ‘Crash’ La Forge, Geordi’s daughter.
However, the show’s proposed premise is so expansive that, in reality, beyond this, practically any of the Star Trek: Picard ensemble might be back, including Jonathan Frakes as William Riker, Gates McFadden as Beverly Crusher, and of course Patrick Stewart as Jean-Luc Picard.
Also, Matalas said that even though Captain Shaw died in the Star Trek: Picard finale, actor Todd Stashwick would return for Star Trek: Legacy if it ever happened. This includes returning cast members from Deep Space Nine and Voyager.
“Shaw does not make it out alive,” Matalas told SFX magazine. But we always knew we wouldn’t do that show without Todd, and we do have plans for a Shaw character, namely Todd Stashwick, to be a part of Legacy that I can’t talk about. So, preparations were made for such a possibility. But alas, no plans are currently in the works.
Star Trek Legacy Plotline: What Can We Expect From It?
The story of Star Trek Legacy would follow the crew of the USS Titan (now renamed the Enterprise-G) as they continue their mission under the leadership of Captain Seven of Nine. We also know that Q will be keeping an eye on Jack Crusher, the son of Picard and Beverly.
That’s all we can say for sure about the plot. Terry Matalas has provided a high-level summary of his proposed storyline for Star Trek Legacy.
Where Can I Watch Star Trek Legacy?
If it goes through, Star Trek: Legacy will join the other Star Trek programs that have aired on Paramount Plus. Media streaming All of the Star Trek movies and episodes of Star Trek: Picard can be found on Paramount Plus.
How Many Episodes Will Star Trek Legacy Have?
There will probably be ten episodes of Star Trek: Legacy. It’s pure speculation, but it’s based on the episode counts of other recent Star Trek shows like Strange New Worlds and Lower Decks, as well as Picard.
Matalas has made it apparent that development on the project has ceased, and he has hinted that this is not going to change very soon. “These shows are expensive to make,” he said to SFX magazine. For more details visit our website Jerseyshorevibe.com
