Oh Captain, my Captain.
The news that Jean-Luc Picard is returning to the Star Trek franchise lit up the internet yesterday, with many an internet-friend and I squeeing with delight.
I mean…first we were like this.
And then we were like this.
And now we’re kinda like this.
The new series, set to debut on CBS All Access App in Fall 2019, will feature Captain Picard in new adventures within the franchise’s universe, and Sir Patrick Stewart will also be executive producer on the project. So far, there has been no announcement of the return of any other of the Star Trek: The Next Generation cast members, but I wouldn’t be surprised if a few happy surprises turn up in upcoming months.
I’ve waited 16 long years for the return of Captain Picard, and I know what I’ll be doing on the day the first episode drops.
