Star Trek: Legacy, the rumored follow-up series to Star Trek: Picard, gets an update courtesy of a new report. In addition to reuniting the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation for one last mission, Picard season 3 set up a new Star Trek show featuring Captain Seven of Nine (Jeri Ryan) as commander of the USS Enterprise-G, tentatively titled Star Trek: Legacy. The cast ideally would include Commander Raffi Musiker (Michelle Hurd) as First Officer; Ensign Jack Crusher (Ed Speleers), as well as several returning Picard characters.


A new Variety cover story about the future of the Star Trek franchise includes a long-awaited, albeit brief, update on the possibility of Star Trek: Legacy happening as a Star Trek streaming movie made for Paramount+ if Star Trek: Section 31 is a success. Read the quote below:

And Kurtzman is already eyeing more opportunities for TV movies, including a possible follow-up to “Picard.”

Star Trek: Picard season 3’s finale concludes the story of TNG in grand style and sets up the next generation’s legacy, along with a big surprise.


Why hasn’t Star Trek: Legacy been confirmed yet?

Short answer: money.


The fan-led campaigns to greenlight Star Trek: Legacy certainly show that demand for the new Star Trek: Picard spinoff exists, but demand alone isn’t enough to warrant a whole new Star Trek series going into production. Even though Picard season 3 clearly set up Legacy, with its potential cast of new characters, Captain Seven catchphrase cliffhanger, and even a visit from Q (John de Lancie), there was never a guarantee that the premise would result in a multi-episode, ongoing Star Trek show, especially with 3 other Star Trek shows currently in production.

The new Variety report suggests that Star Trek: Legacy may come to exist as a streaming Star Trek movie, which would be a more financially sound move, even if it isn’t exactly what fans have been clamoring for. Star Trek: Section 31 was intended as a series before being modified into a more cost-effective feature-length telefilm, and its success could lay the groundwork for a collection of similar Star Trek content on Paramount+. Legacy as a Star Trek movie may not be ideal, but it would still see the continuing adventures of the USS Enterprise-G crew, and that’s better than no Star Trek: Legacy at all.
