Star Trek Is Really Going To Waste Jeri Ryan As Captain Seven of Nine? – News Today

Star Trek Is Really Going To Waste Jeri Ryan As Captain Seven of Nine?

Star Trek: Picard set up Jeri Ryan as Captain Seven of Nine on the Enterprise-G, so why haven’t we heard anything about Star Trek: Legacy?



  • Star Trek: Legacy, a potential spinoff from Star Trek: Picard, would provide a payoff to the ending scene of season 3 featuring Captain Seven of Nine and continue her story as a survivor and symbol of redemption.
  • Legacy could bring together legacy characters from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager, allowing actors to reprise their roles without de-aging technology, and provide a platform for old and new fans to enjoy great stories.
  • The adventures of Captain Seven of Nine would not only fulfill the promise made by Picard season 3 but also show that healing is an ongoing process, honoring the role of Admiral Picard in her journey and portraying the continual growth and development of characters.

Star Trek: Picard season 3 ends with Captain Seven of Nine (Jeri Ryan) taking her place in the center seat of the USS Enterprise-G, flanked by First Officer Commander Raffi Musiker (Michelle Hurd), Special Counselor to the Captain, Ensign Jack Crusher (Ed Speleers), and Lt. Sidney La Forge (Ashlei Sharpe Chestnut) at the helm. The brief scene is an obvious setup for a brand-new Star Trek show, leaving audiences hanging on Captain Seven’s commanding catchphrase. Picard season 3 showrunner Terry Matalas said he’d call that show Star Trek: Legacy, but it wasn’t actually in development.

Fan campaigns for Star Trek: Legacy hope to echo the success of campaigns that launched Star Trek: Strange New Worlds after Star Trek: Discovery season 2 introduced Anson Mount as Captain Christopher Pike. Over 63,000 signatures are on a petition supporting Legacy, and Letters 4 Legacy aims to make demand for Legacy heard through the old-fashioned letter writing that saved Star Trek: The Original Series in the 1960s. It’s worth noting the 2023 WGA strike put a halt to the development of any new TV shows, but no news about a new Captain Seven of Nine Star Trek show with Jeri Ryan has surfaced since the strike’s end.

Star Trek: Legacy – Everything We Know

Star Trek: Picard may have come to an end, but the potential adventures of Starfleet in the 25th century could still continue in Star Trek: Legacy.

No Star Trek: Picard Legacy Spinoff Means Captain Seven Of Nine Has No Payoff

If the Star Trek: Picard spinoff Star Trek: Legacy doesn’t happen, then there’s no payoff to Star Trek: Picard season 3’s ending scene aboard the USS Enterprise-G with Seven of Nine as its captain. Picard season 3 spent time setting the tone for what an Enterprise-G show might be like, with the introduction of new characters like Jack and Sidney and re-establishing the dynamic between Seven and Raffi as positive. Captain Liam Shaw (Todd Stashwick) became an incredibly popular new character, and set Seven’s path to the captaincy in motion. There are far more stories to tell about this crew of misfits in the 25th century, and Star Trek: Legacy should tell them.

Despite Liam Shaw’s fate in Star Trek: Picard season 3, showrunner Terry Matalas has hinted that there are ways for Shaw to return to the Enterprise-G for more adventures.

Star Trek: Legacy would be the ultimate payoff to Seven of Nine’s story as a survivor, 30 years in the making. Seven was so harmed by the Borg that she didn’t realize the Collective wasn’t the safe place she believed it to be, but throughout Star Trek: Voyager Seven learned how to live life as a human woman, with her own voice and reclaimed identity. Star Trek: Picard continued Seven of Nine’s story in unexpected ways, with Seven joining the Fenris Rangers to help others, and eventually Starfleet, despite ex-Borg prejudice facing Seven. As commander of Starfleet’s flagship Enterprise, Captain Seven of Nine is proof of redemption through Federation ideals and a symbol of hope.

Why Captain Seven Of Nine Needs To Continue

Captain Seven of Nine needs to continue in order to fulfill the promise made by Star Trek: Picard season 3, but also to bring Seven of Nine’s story full circle. Both Seven and Admiral Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) suffered deep psychological trauma inflicted by the Borg, but Picard served as living proof that one could heal from the trauma of assimilation into the Collective, and go on to live a rewarding life helping others in Starfleet. Seven of Nine becoming a fellow Captain of the Enterprise honors Picard’s role in Seven’s healing journey, and seeing Seven’s adventures as captain would show that healing is a continual, ongoing process.

More practically, Star Trek: Picard season 3 proved that legacy characters and new characters can unite for great stories that satisfy both old and new fans. Star Trek: Legacy, as a Picard spinoff taking place in the early 25th century, could feasibly catch up with characters from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager, with actors being able to reprise their roles from those shows in live action without the need for de-aging technology. Legacy could provide a vehicle for so many Star Trek characters of the 80s and 90s to receive the Star Trek: Picard treatment, and there’s no better captain for that vehicle than Jeri Ryan’s Seven of Nine.
