Get ready for the new daily show

Marina Sirtis and Jonathan Frakes are both back for Picard series

July 22nd, 2019 by Marc Comments

After the wonderful full trailer for Picard dropped at the weekend (here) at SDCC I was completely on board.

The addition of Data, Seven Of Nine and The Borg had got my attention and the glossy but well made trailer itself sold me… and I’m not the biggest Trekkie (I just never got that obsessed with it) but even I was excited.

However, now The Next Generation star Marina Sirtis who played Deanna Troi has confirmed that she too is back as is Riker, played by Jonathan Frakes (who is also directing a few episodes) and, well, it seems this is a full-on reunion tour.

The addition of more stars will undoubtedly have the fans excited and, if they can pull off a well-scripted series, then CBS All Access could be looking at a bonafide hit.


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
