Author of “The Measure of a Man” is flattered
I’m both flattered and humbled to discover that the Star Trek TV series Picard is building off my Next Generation Episode The Measure of a Man. Bit disappointed to discover that Commander Maddox didn’t actually learn anything from the experience. 😌 #Picard

Douglas Tait has been an actor and creature performer for a number of years. He was previously seen in Star Trek (2009). For Picard, was the Tellarite seen in the first episode of Picard, Tait posted a great photo of the slightly different creature design they used compared to Discovery.
Mackenzie Westmore, daughter of makeup legend Michael Westmore and celebrity in her own right as host of Face Off and star of the soap opera Passions, has a tradition of making a cameo in Trek productions. She took to social media to show off the makeup she was waring for the show, as Rhomsew which is a jumbled version of her family name “Wesmohr” backwards. Westmore’s Rhomsew appears in the background on Earth when Jean-Luc Picard goes to Starfleet Command in “Maps and Legends.” The character appears again later on as part of the team on “The Artifact” however that wasn’t Westmore in the make up as she had a prior commitment.

Well here she is! Rhomsew from the new Star Trek Picard designed by @nevillepage ! Btw what does Rhomsew look like when spelled backwards? You might see me walking about around Picard himself. Such an honor and what an incredible experience to do a full day in prosthetics. Not my norm and I love that! Hope you all are enjoying Star Trek Picard streaming on @startrekcbs ! Unfortunately I did get replaced due to being under contract for another job but even just the little bit I did was an absolute joy and honor and I can’t wait for more!! ;) I LOVED being in full makeup and mad props to the amazing @actordougjones !! Wow! This is no joke! #startrek #startrekpicard #startrektng #picard #cbs #cbsallaccess #scifi #syfy #faceoff #sfxmakeup #sfx #alien #rhomsew #makeup #prosthetics #starfleet #bts #behindthescenes #behindthemakeup #patrickstewart #sirpatrickstewart #lovemyjob

This is how I feel about Star Trek: Picard premiering today! This is also how I feel about Whoopi Goldberg possibly joining season 2 🤩 I couldn’t contain myself when I first arrived to set — happy dancing in my trailer for a good 10 minutes. To get to be part of such an iconic universe is a major blessing. Not to mention the production value on this show. Wow. I counted at least 100 aliens in full prosthetics and custom costumes. That’s 50+ makeup artists. Tons of wardrobe people. Stunning, massive sets. So much attention to detail. It always make my job more exciting when I can step into a world and “stay” there. One of the most important things to note: I worked with two, badass female directors on the show. @hanelleculpepper and @majavrvilo I look forward to seeing your creations onscreen xx @michael.chabon your compliments on my work that day went a long way. @candace_silvers your coachings are always exactly what I need 🙏🏾 Catch Star Trek: Picard on CBS All Access starting today. And catch my episodes beginning next Wednesday 1/29! @startrekcbs @cbsallaccess
