Star Trek: Picard sees Patrick Stewart returning to his position as Jean-Luc Picard from Star Trek: The Next Generation. Stewart can be identified for taking part in Professor X in the X-Men motion pictures. At Destination Star Trek, Stewart recalled the method of producers Alex Kurtzman and Akiva Goldsman convincing him to return as Picard, one thing he’d been decided not to do. It was in Stewart’s second assembly with the producers that he introduced up Logan, his remaining efficiency as Professor X. “I asked to meet them all again and at the second meeting, I had specific terms and conditions that I said would allow me to think about reviving this world,” Stewart stated (by way of StarTrek.com). “Much of it was about what the world could be that you just have been going again to. I referenced X-Men and significantly the ultimate film that Hugh Jackman and myself did, Logan, as [to] what I had in thoughts. Logan was nothing like several of the opposite X-Men motion pictures that had come earlier than. It was very, very totally different. The world had modified. And so, I challenged Alex Kurtzman and Akiva Goldsman to give you concepts for a totally totally different world than the one which we had identified 17 or 18 years earlier.”
It was solely after Stewart felt the producers had risen to that problem that he agreed to return in Star Trek: Picard. “[Star Trek: Picard is] higher than being a return to Jean Luc, a return to the franchise,” Stewart stated. “It felt like a brand new project. And I was fascinated because, in those 18 years, Picard had grown older and Patrick, myself, had grown older. My life, in many respects, is very different. And I felt if we could bring all of those elements into a new series about Picard then I would be content. And this is the end result of that.”
