Star Trek legends Jonathan Frakes and Robert Picardo are going to be in a Hallmark Christmas movie together, but we’re hoping for some more.
The world of Star Trek will see two of their greatest legends, Jonathan Frakes and Robert Picardo, head over to the world of Hallmark Christmas movies for the upcoming release, “A Biltmore Christmas”. Frakes has a largeish role, serving as a guide of sorts in the trailer that was recently released. Picardo, on the other hand, doesn’t seem to have a huge part, at least not one big enough to feature in the trailer.
Both men are great actors and will bring a uniqueness to the world of Hallmark that we’ve not seen that often. Usually, it’s former teen heartthrobs coming in, like the star of a Biltmore Christmas, Bethany Joy Lenz, former star of the CW show One Tree Hill.
So getting two men into their 70s with a far bigger connection to the sci-fi genre is certainly not a common one for the world of Hallmark. But something we think is truly awesome. And we’re hoping for far more.
We’re hoping that Hallmark throws us one other Star Trek cameo in their upcoming A Biltmore Christmas film
With Frakes starring in Star Trek’s The Next Generation and Picard, and Picardo starring in Voyager and Prodigy’s second season, both men are well versed in the world of Trek and both have had plenty of interactions with cast members in and out of the Trek world that could be featured as cameos in the upcoming Biltmore Christmas film.
We’re going to say right off the bat that we don’t think there’s another Trek actor or actress popping up in the film, but man, wouldn’t that be something? Have a little Tim Russ cameo, with Russ starring down Picardo?
Considering the history with Trek and Hallmark, namely the ornaments, we think it’d be a neat way to tie everything together.
