People have already returned to work on Star Trek: Picard.
A few days ago, it was reported that filming for Star Trek: Picard had been momentarily closed due to more than 50 cast and crew members testing positive for the virus. Considering the show’s star was 80 (Patrick Stewart), it was probably the right decision. Still, it looks like the layoff was not as long as expected.
It was supposed to take a few more days for everyone to get back to work for Picard, but now the word is, the work has started again. It’s unclear if this is a downsized crew or what, but Picard showrunner Terry Matalas tweeted he was already back just days after more than 50 crew members were tested. positive for COVID-19.
It is more than likely that the team will work without a group of key members while they wait at home, although this is only speculation on our part.
Star Trek: Picard showrunner hints at a new ship
Matalas’ back to work tweet carried a very unique image that had a very familiar interface design. In the tweet above, you can see what sort of a spaceship interface looks like, which has something to do with an EPS network.
The layout, button design, and overall feel of the interface seem to suggest that Picard season two will actually be aboard a new ship for the season.
One of the biggest fan complaints for the first season, aside from the abysmal tone, was that the show was doing everything it could to not be a Startrek series by placing it as far away from Starfleet as humanly possible.
There are quite a few rumors and rumors that claim season two will bring Picard back with Starfleet to some extent and this image may be proof of that rumor.
