Star Trek: Picard begins the countdown to the end on March 3rd.
Season two of Star Trek: Picard begins on March 3rd on Parmount Plus, and though it’s not the final season of the series, it’s right around the corner. In fact, the cast and crew are wrapping up the last days as Michelle Hurd told Collider last week that they were currently filming the finale. And no one is immune to the emotional aspect of ending the show.
Patrick Stewart, in a group press interview [via Trekmovie], said he has already been dealing with the emotions as he’s shot some final scenes, on of which was with John de Lancie, who plays the character of Q. And that brought the tears to both him and de Lancie.
Star Trek: PIcard wraps up a long history with Admiral Picard and Q.
Q and Picard have a complicated history, and Stewart said that when the director announced that it was de Lancie’s final scene, both of them had tears in their eyes that represented that history. It wasn’t just the two actors saying goodbye; it was the two characters. And it was the end of Stewart working with de Lancie who “brought so much to every single moment and every shot that we did and every scene that we rehearsed.”
And while we can’t say we’ll never see either of these characters again, or at least hear their voices, when the final credits roll on the final episode on Star Trek: Picard, we’ll all feel some of the same emotions. These are two characters who’ve been a part of our lives since 1987. That’s thirty-five years of history that will be condensed into one final season. And though we’ll be sad when it’s over, we will always be grateful that we got a chance to spend more time with Admiral Jean-Luc Picard and Q.
