Marcus Nash as Ensign Jean-Luc Picard

Before he was Captain we got to see a younger Ensign Jean-Luc Picard in The Next Generations Season 6 Episode 15 “Tapestry”. This autograph is from the 2016 Rittenhouse Archives Star Trek The Next Generation Series.

This episode with Q shows how Jean-Luc almost died from a Nausicaan dagger through the heart. Skip to the current day Season 1 Episode 7 episode of Picard, we will see an older Jean Luc tell Kestra to aim her bow at his head instead of his heart because it is made of solid Duratanium.

Michael Berryman as Captain Rixx

Rixx was a cool Starfleet Captain in the very creepy episode “Conspiracy”. Air Date was May 9, 1988 from Season 1 Episode 24. Lots of weird scenes including an exploding head scene at the end. LOL

This card was produced by Rittenhouse Archives in 2010 for their Star Trek Next Generation trading card series. Michael Berryman as Captain Rixx. The reverse of the card names the episode “Conspiracy” which is nice. Most cards do not reference the episode.

Wil Wheaton’s The Ready Room

If you are a fan of the new Star Trek Picard series, you have to tune into the CBS All Access Star Trek channel. Wil Wheaton’s show The Ready Room is fantastic with wonderful reviews and interviews with all the stars of the show. Wil is able to ask so many insightful questions as a former Next Generation cast member and his love of everything Star Trek.

Here’s a pic of Wil from a Wondercon Convention. Wil was very fan friendly taking time to stop for a quick photo.

Picard Episode 6 – Hugh Borg

It was great to see the return of Jonathan Del Arco in Picard Episode 6 “The Impossible Box”. One of my favorite episodes of Star Trek The Next Generation was Season 5 Episode 23 titled “I, Borg” where Jonathan first debuted as a Borg drone with the designation Third of Five later named Hugh by Geordi and the Enterprise crew.

Here is an old convention photo i took of Jonathan and the photo is dated 6/22/1997. Country Club Plaza, Sacramento, CA.

Jonathan would later appear as Hugh Borg in Star Trek The Next Generation in the 2 part episode “Descent”. Part I was the Season 6 ending cliff hanger with Hugh emerging as one of the key characters in Part II which would be the Season 7 Episode 1 opener.

Screen capture of Hugh and Captain Jean Luc Picard from StarTrek.com’s video Star Trek:Picard – Taking the Borg out of XBS. A nice reunion between the 2 characters.
