Star Trek: Picard Star Is Ready to Fight Worf
Over the course of Star Trek: Picard's first season, several of the titular captain's crewmates from the USS Enterprise made an appearance. Cast member Evan Evagora expressed his desire to meet one Star Trek: The Next Generation character in Season 2 — and even engage in battle with him.
Speaking with Pod Syndicate, Evagora said he would love for his Romulan swordsman Elnor to lock blades with former Enterprise security officer Worf. "I’d love a sparring session with Worf… It was Klingons who were viewed as enemies and we get given Worf, and that is a different perspective on Klingons. Not everyone is the same. And I think it is the same with Elnor. It’s a different view with Romulans that we haven't seen before. He’s so different than most Romulans are."Click the button below to start this article in quick view. Start now
Evagora also listed Ian McKellen as one of his dream guests, as well as LeVar Burton's — who revealed in April that he had spoken with Picard's producers about appearing in Season 2 — Geordi La Forge. Previous guest stars from The Next Generation include Brent Spiner as Data and Jonathan Frakes as William T. Riker.
Evagora also mentioned that production on Season 2 of Star Trek: Picard will start in January in California. Production was scheduled to begin in June but halted due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. "I don't know if they have posted the date. All I know is everyone's saying January, January, January. So we'll start season two there and in my opinion it cannot come quicker," he said.
Star Trek: Picard stars Patrick Stewart, Alison Pill, Michelle Hurd, Evan Evagora, Isa Briones, Santiago Cabrera and Harry Treadaway. The first season is available on CBS All Access.
