Star Trek: Picard 3, interview with Michael Dorn and Michelle Hurd
“Nobody says goodbye in the world of Star Trek”. According to Michael Dorn, greetings are a trivial thing in the world created by Gene Roddenberry. This is because the courses and recurrences of the characters are an integral part of the DNA of the series that has rewritten the stylistic features of television science fiction. That’s it – thirty-six years since the debut of Star Trek: The Next Generation, the series that saved the Star Trek franchise from obscurity – the crew of the USS Enterprise rally around Admiral Jean-Luc Picard (Sir Patrick Stewart) again in the final season of Star Trek: Picard, from February 17 streaming with the third season. We reunite with Geordi La Forge, Worf, William Riker, Beverly Crusher, Deanna Troi and Seven of Nine – joined by Lore, Data’s evil twin.
“Returning as Worf? It was surprisingly easy. In the middle of shooting I realized how much fun I was having,” tells Michael Dorn. There is also Michelle Hurd, one of the few actresses to debut in Star Trek: Picard to have survived the two soft-reboot that the series has gone through in previous seasons. “Be part of the legacy of Star Trek it is something indescribable. My character Raffi is going to be pretty rough at the start of Season 3, but her dynamic with Worf is going to move audiences because there’s such a need for authentic portrayals,” said the actress.
