Speaking of Star Trek: The Next Generation, fans can look forward to some big reunions in Season 3 of Star Trek: Picard on Paramount+, including Worf (Michale Dorn), Geordi La Forge (LeVar Burton), Will Riker (Jonathan Frakes), Deanna Troi (Marina Sirtis), and Beverly Crusher (Gates McFadden). LeVar Burton recently had the following to say about working with his TNG family one more time (transcription via TrekMovie): 

 "It was an absolute blast being together again... you guys have heard how close we are, right? When I got married, Brent was my best man, Patrick, Jonathan and Michael were my groomsmen. We've seen each other through the birth of our children, through marriages, death of parents, divorces... And so the opportunity to be together again, and to be together again in spacesuits and play these characters that we all-we love these people as much as you do. Trust me. And you will see, I'm so proud of us because I think we all look pretty damn good. Not only are we aging and aging gracefully, but we're aging appropriately. And that's not always the case."

Star Trek: Picard Seasons 1 and 2 are streaming now on Paramount+. The third and final season of Star Trek: Picard debuts on Paramount+ in 2023.
