Rollin’ Rollin’ Rollin’- Keep them Sketches comin’- Star trek month keeps goin’- on the DS.
Yup, it’s me. Hi. Here to bug you all with another Star Trek sketch.
Today offering is Captain Picard from Star Trek: The Next Generation. Picard rose to his rank of Captain when his commanding officer aboard the USS Stargazer was killed in battle. A model of the Stargazer can be seen displayed by the back wall in Picard’s ready room. Portrayed by actor Patrick Stewart for 7 seasons and 4 feature films, but during the first season of Star Trek: the Next Generation, he was so convinced that he was going to be fired from the series that he didn’t unpack his bags for six weeks. Turns out they thought he did a pretty good job commanding a Starship.
Another little bit of Star Trek: TNG (that’s The Next Generation, for all you non-geeks out there) trivia for you- When a writer’s strike hit the series at the start of the second season, several stories from the proposed late 70’s series “Star Trek: Phase II”, which was eventually dropped in favor of becoming Star Trek: The Motion Picture were quickly dusted off and adapted for the Next Generation crew.
See y’all tomorrow with 3rd favorite Star Trek Captain.
