Keep reading to see the photos.
Ahead of Star Trek: Picard's premiere, ComicBook.com spoke to Evagora about Elnor's relationship with Picard. "He looks up to Picard," Evagora said "It's almost like a Batman and Robin situation, me being Robin, obviously. He views him as a father figure, a leader, a teacher, everything."
He also spoke a bit about how the state of the Romulan people in Star Trek: Picard reflects our world, saying "It's easy to draw comparisons to all these war-torn countries that have just been ravaged. The people left with nothing, like refugees, they're going to want to move to better places and create a better life and it's really easy to find the comparisons there in Star Trek: Picard."
The episode also guest stars as Amirah Vann as Zani, a member of a Romulan religious order that Picard relocated to the planet Vashti 14 years ago.
New episodes of Star Trek: Picard become available to stream Thursdays on CBS All Access.
