In the epic, thrilling conclusion of Star Trek: Picard, a desperate message from a long-lost friend draws Starfleet legend Admiral Jean-Luc Picard into the most daring mission of his life, forcing him to recruit allies spanning generations old and new. This final adventure sets him on a collision course with the legacy of his past and explosive, new revelations that will alter the fate of the Federation forever.
The trailer revealed two new season three cast members. Ed Speleers (Outlander, You, Downton Abbey) appear as a series regular. Paramount+ didn’t provide a name for the character, but he “aids Beverly Crusher’s medical efforts on worlds Starfleet has forgotten.”
The other new character is played by Todd Stashwick (12 Monkeys, Riches ). Again there is no character name but the announcement confirms Stashwick plays the captain of the U.S.S. Titan-A and he will have a recurring role.
