Star Trek: Picard fan theory suggests Vadic is a new Vorta

Star Trek: Picard has fans speculating about everything and everyone this season!

But one interesting theory that could actually be possible, at least in my opinion, is Captain Vadic’s (Amanda Plummer) position now that we know Changelings are involved as villains for this final season of Star Trek: Picard. According to Trekmovie, which has been analyzing some of the fan theories, fans have suggested that Vadic is serving the new Founders as a Vorta.

The aliens/creatures she has serving her are then put in the position of new Jem’ Hadar (were all Jem H’dar eradicated?).  Additional speculation is that Vadic’s minions are an off-shoot of the Jem’Hadar since the original Founders are not involved in this terroristic attack on the Federation. There has also been some suggestions that Vadic herself is a Changeling, but in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Vortas, who were serving the Founders, were the ones leading the Jem’Hadar so that one seems a little iffy.

The third season of Star Trek: Picard really has fans talking

It seems like more fan theories are coming out each day, with some right on point, and that’s not surprising considering the success of this season so far. More people are invested in what’s happening to these characters they’ve known for over thirty years. And we’re even talking about the new villains just as much, if not more, than the familiar characters.

Initially, I questioned bringing in a new villain when Admiral Picard and his former colleagues could be fighting a villain we all knew. I just wasn’t sure about a connection to Admiral Picard and how it would play out over ten episodes. But integrating the Changelings into the plot is a brilliant way to tie Star Trek: Deep Space Nine with Star Trek: The Next Generation, and Star Trek: Picard.

As for who Captain Vadic really is, that’s something we’ll just have to wonder about until the big reveal comes. Personally, I think this one has some merit. What do you think?
