Say what you will about Star Trek: Picard, it’s definitely delivered some surprises.
Some of these have proven very welcome, others have proven pretty unpleasant – a sudden character death comes to mind…
However, when you’re dealing with such a colossal property, there’s always going to be some upset. This is a world that so many have been immersed in for as long as they can remember and with such emotional attachment comes a deep response.
Back when the series was first announced, fans were thrilled to welcome back Patrick Stewart as the titular Jean-Luc, gearing up to embrace his familiar presence on screens once again.
Since it kickstarted in January 2020 we’ve been introduced to some terrific new characters, of whom we’re sure will be treasured for years to come. Although, one of the most enjoyable elements has been reacquainting ourselves with old favourites.
With episode 7, we’re again invited to bask in the company of some iconic names.

It really is thrilling to see him return!
Beyond Star Trek, the 67-year-old actor more recently exercised his vocal talents voicing J’Son/Narrator in the Guardians of the Galaxy TV series, as well as starring in films like 2017’s Devil’s Gate (he played Sheriff Gruenwell) and such shows as Angie Tribeca (Commandant Van Zandt) and The Last 24 (Narrator).
Lulu Wilson joins Star Trar: Picard
Any horror fans here?
The previous decade was truly amazing for genre fans, and if we were to consider the best efforts of both film and television we’d have to extend praise to The Haunting of Hill House on Netflix.
It boasted a great cast and Lulu Wilson (she played Young Shirley) continues to climb, scoring the part of Kestra in Star Trek: Picard.
The 14-year-old actress has already starred in some notable projects across her career, including such film highlights as 2014’s Deliver Us from Evil (Christina), Ouija: Origin of Evil (Doris Zander), Annabelle: Creation (Linda) and Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One (Elementary Kid).
She was also in the acclaimed TV series Sharp Objects (Marian Crellin) with Amy Adams.
Spotlighting Marina Sirtis
Jonathan isn’t the only cast member making a return to the overarching narrative…
Marina Sirtis is also back to reprise the role of Troi!
Fans will remember her from the aforementioned Star Trek: The Next Generation, Nemesis, Insurrection, First Contact, Generations etc.
More recently, she’s been in a range of films, including 2015’s A Dark Reflection (Maggie Jaspar), Finders Keepers (Janine) and 5th Passenger (Alana), with TV roles in the likes of NCIS (Orli Elbaz), Make It or Break It (Doctor Anna Kleister), Scandal (General Fletcher) and more.
