On Prime Video and Paramount + the TV series with Patrick Stewart ended after three seasons.
For a few hours, up Prime Video and Paramount+ is available the latest episode of Star Trek: Picardthe tv series that brought back Patrick Stewart as the iconic character from Star Trek: The Next Generation Jean-Luc Picard. If you have seen it (if not, we advise you to return to this in-depth analysis later so as not to spoil the surprise), the post-credits scene will have left you with several question marks and one certainty: we have not yet seen the last of the Jack Crusher Of Ed Speleers.
Star Trek: Picard, what happens in the last episode
In the final episode of Star Trek: Picard the protagonist and Beverly Crusher (Gates McFadden) manage to save their son Jack from the Borg Queen, also thanks to the help of their longtime companions. Then, after a time jump, we find out what happened to all the characters. USS Titan was renamed Enterprise-G in recognition of the efforts of Picard and his crew. The promoted Seven of Nine (Jeri Ryan) is its captain, Raffi (Michelle Hurd) the first officer, while Jack, now a Starfleet ensign, an advisor.
A happy ending – everyone laughs in friendship around a card table – except that, in a post-credits scene, we see Q (John de Lancie) make a surprise appearance in Jack’s quarters on the Enterprise-G. “Young mortal, you have a long way ahead of you,” he tells him. “You told my father that the trial of humanity was over,” he replies warily. “It is. For him,” Q clarifies, before adding, “But I’m here for you today. Yours, Jack, has just begun.”
Jack Crusher: His story continues
It is therefore evident that great things await the character of Jack Crusher. Maybe a spin-off? Possibly a tv movie in line with le recent statements by executive producer Alex Kurtzman? Perhaps an involvement of him in one of the other stories of the Star Trek Universe in progress? In an interview with Entertainment Weeklylo showrunner Terry Sharp confirmed: “Jack has a lot to do, let me tell you. The moment I came to this idea and I realized that it had to be about Picard’s son, I imagined a post-credits sequence in which he was handed the baton”. Matalas recalled “the first major interaction” between Q and Picard in Meeting at Farpointthe first episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation, and added: “Where better to end than at the beginning?”. And while she didn’t reveal what the plans are for Speleers and Jack Crusher, she guaranteed that they are clear in his head admitting: “Oh yeah. I know what they are. Of course I do.”
