Whatever Wednesday: Star Trek Picard

Updated: Jan 24, 2020

Hello Posse,

It is well documented that I am a big ole nerd. I love all things sci-fi and I do things like read physics for fun. So it should come as no surprise to learn that I am a Trekkie. I have even had photos with a few of the Star Trek captains including William Shatner and I once met Sir Patrick Stewart in London.

I have been looking forward to seeing the new series Picard since I first learned is was being made. Where we live, we cannot get the normal streaming service it is available through so we have been searching to find any local service where we can get it. But while we wait to see season one, I'm already geeking over what will come in season two.

Recently while Sir Patrick Stewart was visiting The View he asked Whoopi Goldberg if she would be interested in being a part of season two of Picard. It looks like Guinan will be making a return to the Star Trek universe, a character that was created just for her.

Growing up Goldberg had been a fan of the original Star Trek series. Later when she was gaining success in the entertainment industry a friend of her's, LeVar Burton, told her he had been cast as part of a new Star Trek series. She asked him to let the shows producers know she would be interested in joining the cast as well. It was after a call she made to Star Trek creator, Gene Roddenberry, the character of Guinan was born.

Goldberg was on the Star Trek the Next Generation series for five seasons and also appeared in two movies. If you want to read more check out
