‘Star Trek’: How Patrick Stewart Is Involved With Writers’ Room In New Series

Writer Michael Chabon recently revealed the extent in which Stewart was involved with the writers’ room for the highly-anticipated new series:

In his time as a lead member of the franchise Stewart has appeared as the iconic Jean Luc-Picard in two show series and four feature length films since first taking on the role in 1987. He appeared as a guest star in the spin-off, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine before appearing in the films. His character was last seen in the 2002 film, Star Trek: Nemesis. Sadly it was not the most gracious of sendoffs for the iconic character. The film was sadly a box office disappointment, only earning $67M on a $60M budget and received mostly negative review from critics. Perhaps the upcoming series will provide a more gracious exit for one of the best captains to grace the science fiction genre.

What do you all make of this news? Are you looking forward to Picard’s return to the franchise? Should they have left the character alone? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
