Picard Season 3 Was Written To Feel Like A Star Trek Feature Film
The final season of “Star Trek: Picard” streams on Paramount+ beginning February 16, 2023, and is set to be an all-star reunion of the Enterprise-D crew, with LeVar Burton and Jonathan Frakes, among others, reprising their roles — so it’s only fitting, then, that it’s properly cinematic. "It feels like a feature film, a final feature film," said showrunner and writer Terry Matalas.
Part of the cinematic feeling may come from the fact that, after exploring intergalactic politics and character-driven drama for its first two seasons, the show will now face down one Big Bad. According to "Trek" franchise overseer Alex Kurtzman, the antagonist is comparable to Ricardo Montalban's Khan: “I won't say too much other than to say that she [the villain] is amazing.”
The new season of “Star Trek: Picard” apparently doesn't just feel like a movie, it could be the launching pad for an actual movie. Several of the castmates of "Star Trek: The Next Generation" like Frakes have expressed interest in continuing with stories beyond this one, but Matalas said it will be up to the fans to decide if they want to see more.
