Star Trek: Picard spinoff, Star Trek: Legacy has a ton of fan support.
Star Trek: Picard spinoff show, Star Trek: Legacy, is an idea that some fans seemingly love very much. A concept of Star Trek: Picard showrunner, Star Trek: Legacy would see Seven of Nine, Raffi, Jack Crusher, the La Forge sisters, and possibly other second-generation stars from The Next Generation aboard the Enterprise-G, doing their thing across the galaxy.
It’s an idea that has its fair share of detractors, as it leans too heavily in continuing a narrative started in the 1980s with the Next Generation series of stories, but it’s also an idea that has a huge, and growing fanbase.
Now, one fan petition calling for Legacy to be pushed into production has hit a new milestone. The petition calling for Legacy has hit 29,000 signatures, a number more than the petition that Strange New Worlds had. With it hitting this mark, many fans think a Legacy series is not too far behind, but they should be cautious about their optimism.
Star Trek: Spinoff show, Legacy, has huddles that Strange New Worlds didn’t
Legacy may be a good show but it’s important to remember that there were people advocating and pushing for a Strange New Worlds show before Discovery, the show which Strange New Worlds spun out of, had finished filming its second season. Alex Kurtzman himself got the show going, mostly as a vehicle for Anson Mount, who would play Christopher Pike in the series.
It was also a show created at a time when all streaming services were throwing money liberally at projects, regardless of how much they cost, but with Paramount+ now cutting costs in an effort to become sustainable and profitable, it seems less likely a new project, of that magnitude, would get greenlit.
No matter what Kurtzman may be saying to try and appease fans.
