Star Trek: Picard sees Patrick Stewart reprising his role as Jean-Luc Picard from Star Trek: The Next Generation. Stewart is also an executive producer on the series, which was created by Alex Kurtzman (Star Trek: Discovery), Academy Award winner Akiva Goldsman (A Beautiful Mind), Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael Chabon (The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay) and Kirsten Beyer.
Earlier this month, Stewart spoke about the defining moments of Picard's first season. “It was a scene where Marina was talking to me about Soji and talking to me about me, and so forth. Long speech,” Stewart said. “And she did it so brilliantly. It was one of those moments which happens, I think, to all actors when I stopped being in a scene and was simply an audience admiring what was going on in front of me. I thought her work was brilliant.
“The other one was almost the penultimate scene of the season when I was alone with Data in a strange, rather grim, grey room. And we were talking about his life and what he expressed as the one thing that he most missed in his life was knowing that he would die. Because of my relationship with Brent, which is very special, as are my relationships with the entire crew of the Enterprise, my principle colleagues, and there was a moment in that scene where I had to stand up out of the chair and prepare to leave the room knowing what I had agreed to do, the last thing I would do to help Data. And I had to turn and say ‘Goodbye, Commander.’ We did that shot several times because I’d get to my mark and I couldn’t say it because it was just too emotional."
