Sir Patrick Stewart in talks to return to Star Trek as Captain Jean-Luc Picard

Patrick Stewart may be beamed back for another Star Trek series.

Sir Patrick, 77, is “close to securing a deal” to return as Captain Jean-Luc Picard for a reboot of the Generation series.

The star is keen to reprise his most ­famous part – and deals are close to ­being struck, says a TV source.

An LA source said: “Patrick is ­looking pretty good to get back on board the Enterprise. There are some aspects of the deal to be finalised, but there is a verbal commitment from all parties.”

He said: “There are animated series also in the works, and Patrick could easily lend his voice to them.

A reboot of TNG, a/o an animated series? I smell shenanigans.

The prospect certainly is appealing. He'd only agree to it if the alleged new series has the potential to be good.

Yeah, I know I sound naïve, but a man can dream, right? :P

I dunno. Like all the new series, I am honestly so burned by... well, recent events, shall we say... that I just don't have faith that anything good will come out of CBS when it comes to Trek.

I guess I'll wait and see.

I just hope he yells at Commander Wesley to shut up.

None. They always surrender right before they finish the job and never tell you why.

We're finally seeing Trek moving forward within its universe, finally continuing where Voyager/Nemesis left off. That's some good news.

With the problem that future events are already partially written (romulus destruction for example)

Even if it fits well with the "imaginary future" of Q in All Good Things,

1) Romulus is destroyed
2) The Romulan empire loses the major center of population and industry and ends in chaos
3) the Klingon empire attacks and conquers the Romulan Empire
4) the Federation breaks the alliance with the Klingons

If they did that, I would be happy. I suspect they won't do that, though.

I will always be very proud to have been a part of Star Trek: The Next Generation, but when we wrapped that final movie in the spring of 2002, I truly felt my time with Star Trek had run its natural course. It is, therefore, an unexpected but delightful surprise to find myself excited and invigorated to be returning to Jean-Luc Picard and to explore new dimensions within him. Seeking out new life for him, when I thought that life was over.

During these past years, it has been humbling to hear stories about how The Next Generation brought people comfort, saw them through difficult periods in their lives or how the example of Jean-Luc inspired so many to follow in his footsteps, pursuing science, exploration and leadership. I feel I'm ready to return to him for the same reason – to research and experience what comforting and reforming light he might shine on these often very dark times. I look forward to working with our brilliant creative team as we endeavor to bring a fresh, unexpected and pertinent story to life once more.

Okay, here is my prediction. Stick a pin in it, see how I did in a year or two.

I predict : The new show will be a "Starfleet Academy" show, and Patrick Stewart's role will be as the head of the Academy. His role in the show will basically be to have a scene near the start where he talks to some students, hands out an assignment, etc. He'll have a scene at the end where he discusses the lesson they learned from whatever happened. He may have a scene or two in between where he gives a failing cadet a pep talk. Most of these scenes will be in his office. He will be in each episode no more than ten minutes, and usually more like five. The episodes will actually be about the students, who will all be pretty young things.

Why? The man is almost eighty. As well as he has aged, I doubt he's going to be able to do a full TV schedule again. So they'll Angela Lansbury him and arrange the show to give him the lightest possible workload for any given episode. Two or three scenes per episode, all on one set. Couple of short days worth of work per week for him.
