Star Trek: Picard has been touted as a story that tells the next chapter of Jean-Luc Picard's life, but also one that will check in on other characters of the franchise's past. Season 1 featured the returns of characters such as Riker, Deanna Troi, Data, and Seven of Nine, who had made their debut in previous Star Trek works. As such, it's only natural that their former co-stars would check out their performances, which is exactly what fellow Star Trek: Voyager actor Robert Picardo did.
Picardo, who worked with Seven of Nine actress Jeri Ryan on Voyager, watched Season 1 of Star Trek: Picard and recently shared his thoughts with ComicBook.com on how the show handled the character's story:
It's interesting to read Robert Picardo's thoughts as a former Star Trek: Voyager actor, especially one who had some insight into Seven of Nine's character. I'll admit the fact that Seven Of Nine regained most of her humanity and in turn, spent her time trying to help do the same for other Borg was a plot point I underappreciated. Luckily, we have people like Picardo to point that out how clever her story direction was.
Robert Picardo had a lot of kind things to say about how the writers tackled Seven of Nine's character, but the compliments didn't stop there. Picardo had some compliments for Jeri Ryan, as well as the others who reprised their roles for Star Trek: Picard:
Robert Picardo had nothing but compliments for those who were in Star Trek: Picard, but not because he's coming to the series soon. Despite previous statements that he had been contacted for Season 2, Picardo now says that there are no plans for him to appear in the franchise. Whether he's now obligated to say that with Season 2 on the way or just jumped the gun after some meeting with the crew we don't know, but I guess we'll find out eventually!
