While Patrick Stewart is stepping into his new role as the lead of the Starz series Blunt Talk, a generation of fandom will always remember of as Jean-Luc Picard, captain of the starship Enterprise on Star Trek: The Generation.

The Next Generation concluded its run on television in 1994, and Stewart last portrayed Picard in the 2002 film Star Trek Nemesis. With '90s television reboots being all the rage right now, could we see Picard return?

"It's possible," Stewart told IGN. "I think it's unlikely. But it's possible. The series wrapped over 25 years ago and we've got a rather elderly Captain Picard now. So I don't know. It would be… it could be entertaining."


Make it so, Captain. Make it so.
