Star Trek fans saved Star Trek: Prodigy, and a renewed effort is underway to get a green light for Star Trek: Picard season 3’s proposed spinoff known as Star Trek: Legacy. Picard season 3 was a huge hit for Star Trek on Paramount+ as generations of fans thrilled to the reunion of the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation in one more galaxy-saving adventure masterminded by showrunner Terry Matalas. Although Picard season 3 ended with a clear setup for a continuation aboard the USS Enterprise-G, there has been no movement by Paramount+ to produce the spinoff dubbed Star Trek: Legacy, and that series is not in development.

The grassroots campaign Letters 4 Legacy is rallying fans to renew the effort to get Star Trek: Legacy a green light by streaming Star Trek: Picard season 3 on Paramount+. Similar to how Picard season 3 was released for 10 weeks from February to April, “Legacy Launch” – Star Trek: Picard Season 3 Rewatch calls for fans to stream each episode every Thursday starting November 9th. The schedule for the “Legacy Launch” – Star Trek: Picard Season 3 Rewatch is as follows:

  • November 9, 2023: ‘The Next Generation’
  • November 16, 2023: ‘Disengage’
  • November 23, 2023: Calibrate Tricorders for optimal turkey temperature
  • November 30, 2023: ‘Seventeen Seconds’
  • December 7, 2023: ‘No Win Scenario’
  • December 14, 2023: ‘Imposters’
  • December 21, 2023: ‘The Bounty’
  • December 28, 2023: ‘Dominion’
  • January 4, 2024: ‘Surrender’
  • January 11, 2024: ‘Võx’
  • January 18, 2024: ‘The Last Generation’

According to Letters 4 Legacy’s press release, streaming each episode of Star Trek: Picard season 3 every Thursday during the rewatch “serves as a call to action, an appeal to Paramount not to let the promising future of Star Trek: Legacy slip away.” The goal is to get a green light for Star Trek: Legacy with Terry Matalas as showrunner, and his creative team and cast in place to continue the story of Star Trek‘s 25th century where Picard season 3 left off.

Why Picard Season 3 Fans Want Star Trek: Legacy

Fan demand for Star Trek: Legacy has not subsided in the months since Star Trek: Picard season 3’s finale streamed on Paramount+. An online petition to green-light Star Trek: Legacy has garnered over 62,000 signatures. Although the Writer’s Guild and SAG-AFTRA strikes prevented the writers, and still prevents the actors, from publicly advocating for Terry Matalas’ vision to continue Star Trek: Picard season 3’s vision for months, fans online have never ceased voicing their desire for Star Trek: Legacy.

Star Trek: Picard season 3 ended with an undeniably intriguing set-up for more voyages aboard the USS Enterprise-G.

Captain Seven of Nine (Jeri Ryan) and Commander Raffi Musiker (Michelle Hurd) have earned their roles as the new lead characters of Star Trek: Legacy while Q (John de Lancie) reappearing to tease the cosmic destiny of Ensign Jack Crusher (Ed Speleers) offers a road map that fans find too intriguing not to want to see come to fruition. Picard season 3 also established a dynamic supporting cast including Lieutenant Sidney La Forge (Ashlei Sharpe Chestnut), while Star Trek legend Jonathan Frakes expressed his desire to return as Admiral Will Riker and cameo in the spinoff while also directing episodes. At the very least, “Legacy Launch” – Star Trek: Picard Season 3 rewatch is a great reason to experience Terry Matalas’ rousing reunion of Star Trek: The Next Generation all over again.

Star Trek: Picard season 3 is available to stream on Paramount+.
