Picard’s son may actually be a reality
Recently, a rumor started swirling around about the introduction of Admiral Picard’s son in Star Trek: Picard. Not much information was supplied at the time, and the details were kind of sketchy. Now, however, The Illuminerdi dropped more information about the supposition and added that they have every confidence that the information is accurate.
In the July 8th article, writer Josh Goldman gives more specifics about Picard’s son, including his age, description, and an actor who is possibly being considered for the role. However the character breakdown was provided to the site, it reveals that Picard’s son is named Henry, and that he is in his early twenties. And there’s more.
"Henry is described as having either an American or British accent, he’s headstrong, independent, and charming. He can be reckless and has a “take from the rich, give to the poor” sense of morality. He’s confident, adventurous, and ready to fight for and help people in need."
Picard’s son even has a storyline idea
In addition, a brief storyline is also introduced with Henry becoming involved in a conspiracy that crosses the galaxy. Such an involvement will have Henry rethinking his ideas about the world around him, his heroes, and himself. Goldman goes on to say that “while no decisions on casting have been made yet, they are interested in David Corenswet.” Corenswet is a twenty-eight-year old American actor who most recently starred in The Politician.
So with all of this new information coming in, we have to wonder if we’re getting closer to a reveal from Star Trek: Picard producers. Perhaps this is an idea to not only flesh out Patrick Stewart’s character in the upcoming seasons but possibly make way for a new character in the Star Trek universe, one that could be around for much longer than the time allotted for this series.
So what do you think? Is this still an elaborate rumor that’s growing bigger, or is there really a chance that Picard has a son we’re about to discover along with him?
