The idea of a Star Trek: Titan series has made an impression on fans now watching the third and final season of Star Trek: Picard.
Captain Liam Shaw (Todd Stashwick) is brash, arrogant, smug, and smart. He isn’t the typical captain that everyone warms to right away. In fact, in the first couple of episodes of Star Trek: Picard, Shaw is one of the least-liked new characters on the show. But he’s grown on viewers so much so that they’re asking whether there is the possibility we could see a Star Trek: Titan series with Stashwick as the lead.
A viewer posited the question to Stashwick on Twitter who quickly confirmed that there was nothing in the works right now. He added that those decisions were above his head, and he hadn’t been told if the producers or powers-that-be, so to speak, have anything planned. Another fan followed up by asking if he were to receive the call, would he “accept the duty and boldly go” to which Stashwick responded with a positive gif.
Another fan reached out to showrunner Terry Matalas about campaigning for a Star Trek: Titan series.
And Matalas was quick to give the idea a thumbs-up, calling it a “terrific idea.”
Undoubtedly, this wasn’t the first time Matalas had heard about the idea. With Picard ending, talks of a spin-off (or spin-offs) have been going on for longer than the third season has been airing. With the way Stashwick has portrayed Captain Shaw, it would be more of a surprise if the idea hadn’t come up at all.
Obviously, Matalas is behind the series and the fan demand for it 100%, and there are many, many fans who are already behind the spin-off, with one saying they wanted to see Shaw go head-to-head with the Borg Queen and another saying they would watch Shaw for eight seasons of twenty-two episodes each.
It’s almost assured that there will be at least one spin-off from Star Trek: Picard. Whether or not the announcement will be made on First Contact Day is unknown, but that would be a great time to let us know this series is being seriously considered.
