For all the wrong reasons, “Star Trek: Picard“It’s been in the news for the past few weeks. Like a real-life disaster movie, the cast and crew of the Paramount+ show are working their way through the pandemic. Like so many businesses and other aspects of life, COVID-19 disrupted production on the second season of “Picard” and everything on hold.
Writer Lesli Goldberg reports 50 members of the production team tested positive for COVID in early January 2022. The story notes that filming of “Picard” took place in Los Angeles, where “several television and movie red carpets are happening.” canceled” due to recent COVID spike in -19 Omicron cases.
ScreenRant’s Sarah Smith clarified that it’s technically halting production of Season 3 because they’re filming consecutive seasons. Smith reported that production of “Picard” had resumed on January 7, citing a Tweet from showrunner Terry Matalas.
Matalas .’s Twitter feed might be a good one to follow for the fans Patrick Stewart’s Characters. The feed often provides fans with images from the “Picard” set and often sparks conversations among his followers.
Games Radar reports that Season 2 is scheduled to premiere in February 2022, but these delays can alter the timeline.
‘Picard’ season 2 trailer
For Trek fans who might not have been paying close attention — which is easy given the overwhelming amount of news surrounding the franchise — “Star Trek: Picard” will delve into an alternate universe . That’s where Picard (Stewart) and his crew, Dr. Agnes Jurati (Alison Pill), Soji (Isa Brones), Elnor (Evan Evagora), Raffi (Michelle Hurd) and the Seven of Nine (Jeri Ryan) join. together to ensure the Earth avoids a fascist future.
This is similar to how Marty McFly goes back to 1955 to prevent Biff from becoming an unstoppable billionaire in “Back to the Future: Part II. Meanwhile, McFly (Michael J. Fox) must avoid interfering with himself and Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd).
John de Lancie and Whoopi Goldberg will also return to the franchise as “Q” and “Guinan.” As the trailer teases, Q continues to “test” humanity. This is the same experiment that Q started The first episode of “The Next Generation”“In 1987 and revisited in last episode of TNG, seven years later.
New Borg Queen
Season 2 will also mean that fans will get to know each other again Queen Borg, who appeared first in “Star Trek: First Contact“In 1996. Back then, she was played by South African actress Anne Krige, who reprized the role in several episodes of “Star Trek: Voyager”. She shared the role with Susanna Thompson, who took on the episodes “Dark Frontier,” “Unimatrix Zero,” and “Unimatrix Zero, Part II.”
For “Picard”, Queen Borg will be played by Annie Wersching, an actress known for her works “The Vampire Diaries” and “Bosch. ”
Some Borg theories
Writer Mike Poteet speculates that Picard and company reactivated the Borg Queen “just to collect some of that Borg”chronometric beads“we’ve heard of ‘First Contact’, to facilitate their trip back to our present.”
That makes perfect sense, since viewers can make that inference from the trailer. But in a later scene, Agnes Jurati appears to be interacting with the Queen, suggesting that something else may also be going on. Poteet said that “The meeting with Queen Borg…predicted a darker plot development?”
ScreenRant’s John Orquiola wrote that Borg might have gone after Picard because he was more like them now. At the end of Part One of “Picard,“The old captain’s consciousness was merged into a new android body. Like his young friend Soji, Picard is a non-human life form. Borg may attempt to assimilate Picard and the entire planet Copellius (which is Soji’s secret hideout and her composite family).
Orquiola says that thanks to time travel, Picard may have to stop “Queen Borg before she becomes the ruler of the robot race”. That would be disastrous, as Queen Borg would then be able to take control of Picard on her own – just like she tried to do in “First Contact”.
The Hollywood Reporter hints that Borg might join just to get their stuff. One of the most interesting parts of “Picard” Part One is how the Romans destroyed an old Borg Cube. Perhaps Borg will return to the Alpha Quadrant simply to get their cube back.
It is possible that Picard and his team used the Borg Queen for her time travel powers but summoned her race, with unintended consequences. The story may reveal that even though Picard saves the “future,” like McFly, he is somehow able to free Borg, which could be the danger he faces in Season 3. .
