In his time as a lead member of the franchise, Patrick 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. Patrick Stewart’s 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.
