Paramount announces that Star Trek: Picard Season 3 will be the last for the series as the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation will join the show for the final season. The announcement was made in the following video for “First Contact Day,” where joining Patrick Stewart for Season 3 includes LeVar Burton, Michael …
There has been mention of a new Star Trek TV series on more than one occassion over the past few years, and now Marina Sirtis, known for playing Troi from TNG, comments on it.
In the following video, Sirtis definitely thinks there will be a new Star Trek TV series and even offers if they reboot The Next Generation, Mila Kunis should play her part.
Previously it’s been said that with J.J. Abrams attached to the new Star Trek movies, a TV series was put on hold, but with Abrams now on Star Wars, it’s possible Paramount might go with a new TV series sooner rather than later.
Scott Bakula recently gathered along side all the captains of Star Trek at a reunion that took place in London.
There, Bakula was asked if he would like to be in J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek sequel, with Bakula, who played Captain Jonathan Archer of Star Trek: Enterprise, replying in the affirmative.
“Of course! I love the new film! Are you kidding? They just have to ask. They have my number. I fax it regularly over to his (J.J. Abrams’) office. Is that wrong? Is that pandering? In uniform. Maybe that’s too much,” Bakula told ComingSoon.net (via Blastr).
Likewise, Star Trek: The Next Generation‘s Marina Sirtis, Counselor Troi, said she would like to appear as well.
“I love the new films. I thought the kids were fantastic! Not crazy about them blowing up Vulcan. I was like, hold on a minute. Wasn’t Vulcan around when we were around? But I’m not going to argue with J.J. Would I like to be in the new films? Yes! That would be fabulous! I think that I should go over there as a counselor. They’re young, they need guidance. I can see myself putting them on the right path,” she said.
As J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek is set in an alternative universe, the inclusion of either Scott Bakula or Marina Sirtis really wouldn’t be much of a â€” quantum leap (sorry, had to go there).
The as-of-yet unnamed Star Trek sequel has a May 17th, 2013 release date in 3D, is directed by J.J. Abrams and stars Chris Pine as Capt. James T. Kirk, Zachary Quinto as Spock, Karl Urban as Leonard “Bones” McCoy, Zoe Saldana as Nyota Uhura, Simon Pegg as Scotty, Anton Yelchin as Pavel Chekov, John Cho as Hikaru Sulu and Benedict Cumberbatch as an unnamed villain.
