Star Trek: Nemesis deleted scene hints at Picard’s future for upcoming series
A deleted scene from Star Trek: Nemesis could confirm what happened to Picard ahead of the new upcoming series.
An uncovered scene from Star Trek: Nemesis shows Jean-Luc Picard talk to Data and potentially confirming what happened to Picard (Patrick Stewart) since the movie’s timeline.
At the end of the 2002 film, Data, played by Brent Spiner, sacrificed himself to save his Starfleet captain – with Picard mentioning his death in the trailer for the upcoming show.
‘Nearly two decades ago, Commander Data sacrificed his life for me,’ Picard says in the trailer.
‘These past few years I really tried to belong here. But it never truly felt like home.’
Patrick Stewart has played the iconic Jean-Luc Picard since Star Trek: The Next Generation which ran for seven seasons between 1987 and 1994.
In the deleted scene from Star Trek: Nemesis, Picard and Data are shown discussing family and their future, which could suggest a storyline for the upcoming Picard show.
The scene also sees Picard and Data drink a glass of Château Picard. In the Star Trek: Picard trailer, Picard is seen at his brother’s vineyard, after leaving Starfleet, suggesting that the deleted scenes may be connected to the upcoming CBS show.
When the two characters discuss their future and moving on in the deleted scene, Data states to Picard: ‘I believe my memory engrams would sense the absence of your proximity Sir. I would miss you.’
Comparably, in the trailer for the upcoming series, Isa Briones’ character Dahj, confronts Picard: ‘Do you know who I am? Everything inside of me, says that I’m safe with you.’
Set phasers to curious.
While the identity of Dahj is still unknown, there are clear parallels between the deleted scene of Nemesis and the Star Trek: Picard trailer, with the aftermath of Nemesis seen to be the main storyline for the French Starfleet captain.
The trailer shows that Spiner returns as Data along with Jeri Ryan as Seven of Nine from Star Trek: Voyager.
Star Trek: Picard will air on CBS: All Access in the US and Amazon Prime in the UK in 2020.
