Star Trek: Voyager’s Robert Picardo May Appear in Star Trek: Picard
We might see another Star Trek: Voyager alum making his return in the upcoming Star Trek: Picard. After discovering that Jeri Ryan will reprise her role as Seven of Nine, we now hear that CBS is looking for Robert Picardo to play the Emergency Medical Hologram and/or Dr. Lewis Zimmerman again. In a recent interview with TrekkieGirls at London Film & Comic Con, Picardo revealed that CBS talked with his agent.
“I am pleased that they (CBS) have expressed interest in me,” Picardo said. “They have reached out to my agent about next season. So I’m looking forward to seeing what it is. As you know I play two characters, primarily the Doctor but also Lewis Zimmerman. Lewis Zimmerman, the engineer who created the Doctor’s program, certainly would have aged. He’s in the same timeline as Patrick Stewart and all the folk.”
Then he stated that would be an honor to have a reunion with Ryan and Patrick Stewart.
“The Doctor, of course, like Data, doesn’t age, but there are ways to address that, as we all know,” he added. “I joked the other day that my daughter does visual effects, that’s exactly what she does is digitally correct actors so I said, ‘If they hire the two of us, she could make me look 25 years younger.’ Anyway, it will interesting to see when something happens, if something but, but I might have a chance to be onscreen with Jeri again. It would be an honor and a delight, obviously, to have scenes with Patrick Stewart so, you know, we’ll keep our fingers crossed.”
Star Trek: Picard is expected to premiere in early 2020. Are you happy about Robert Picardo’s potential return? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
