    Supposedly they wrote possible futures for every single TNG regular (and recurring) characters. I simply can't imagine them *not* having a plan for Crusher. The fact that she's just MIA is narratively jarring. She's one of Picard's oldest friends and sounding boards. If she were dead, there would have been a mention of it. The only thing that makes sense is if they had a falling out of some sort. Or Beverly is in an unreachable place.

    Or, the previous showrunner didn't think she was necessary to the overall narrative. And no I don't agree with that at all. But it is possible he thought that for whatever reason. We have a new showrunner now, so, time will tell if he's more open to other TNG characters appearing or not. We're already getting Guinan and now Q, so that's a good sign IMO.

    If it felt like the showrunners didn't really have a plan on how to end the first season of Picard it's because they didn't. Taken from a Hollywood Reporter article. https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/he...g-q-for-picard

    THR:Switching to Picard, what did you guys learn from the first season in terms of pulling off the show that you’re bringing into season two?

    Akiva Goldsman: Figure out the end earlier. If you're going to do a serialized show, you have the whole story before you start shooting. It's more like a movie in that way — you better know the end of your third act before you start filming your first scene.

    Maybe that explains why I hated the way they ended things with Picard in the season's last episode.

    But wait, it gets better!

    THR: You're bringing back Q, but Picard is a pretty different show, tonally, than Next Gen. So how do you evolve Q like you evolved Jean-Luc, so that he's still the same character but not overly broad or cartoonish?

    Akiva Goldsman: You asked the exact right question, and the answer is: "In the same way that we have tried to do with Picard himself." [Co-showrunner] Terry Matalas and I don't pretend that the interstitial years didn't happen. No, obviously, chronological time is less relevant to Q. The time between shows is probably not even the blink of an eye in Q time — if you even have Q time. But we definitely chose to follow suit when it came to him. So as we tried to evolve the other characters, the same is true of Q. This is a show of a different time with actors of a different age. We're now talking about the issues that come up in the last [stage] of your life. We wanted a Q that could play in that arena with Picard.

    Get ready for a lame Q that won't stop apologizing to everyone

    Why would he be apologizing to everyone?

    Ok..Chabon is the showrunner that's leaving, Terry Matalas is the showrunner that's coming. Akiva Goldsman seems to be in a Feige-esque role hence why they're talking to him but he's not the showrunner per se, Matalas will be. So the question mark is what will Matalas bring to the table.

    It does seem like Goldsman is basically throwing Chabon under the bus though with his "Finding out the end earlier" comment.

    Meanwhile, this just happened:

    Ditto, although in my case, it's not just because Dr. Crusher was super-important to Picard, but because I never could stand Q. He came off as a cheap Trelane knock-off, and I didn't much like Trelane either.

    Also, get off my lawn!

    Good news, indeed!

    Worf's return would be a good excuse to bring back Crusher as well - it's probably about time for her to replace that implant that replaced his shattered vertebrae, yeah..?

    Wonderful news. Now just bring back Crusher... and make the season more bloody hopeful and less alcoholic!

    And just like that...

    Confirmed: Michael Dorn’s Cryptic Tweet About Starfleet Return Isn’t For A Star Trek Show Or Movie [UPDATED]

    While Dorn’s tweet about being summoned back into action by Starfleet could be seen as a hint related to his Captain Worf show, or possibly one of the three live-action or two animated Star Trek series currently in development, it appears that isn’t the case. TrekMovie has confirmed with sources that whatever this is, it isn’t related to a Paramount+ Star Trek project.

    so...Dorn isn't lying about returning as Worf, just in what capacity no one knows yet as its not officially related to Paramount et al
