Star Trek series alum and director Jonathan Frakes has spoken about the possibility of getting executive producer Terry Matalas’ proposed sequel series Star Trek: Legacy made.

While speaking with Variety, Frakes noted that the recent final season of Star Trek: Picard was well-received and said that, as an optimist, he believes Star Trek: Legacy could come to fruition.

“I think they can’t deny not only the fan reaction, but the fact that the numbers put the show at the Top 10 on the streaming charts,” Frakes stated. “And that season of Star Trek: Picard was arguably the among the best seasons of any Star Trek — I think we all agree on that. I mean, Star Trek fans are loyal. It’s not millions and millions of people, and it’s not the youngest fandom in the world. But I am an eternal optimist, and I believe in a perfect world, they will find the assets and the energy and hire Terry to put together this Legacy show and that will, in fact, come to fruition.”

What is Star Trek: Legacy?

Star Trek: Legacy is a potential sequel series to Star Trek: Picard that was pitched on social media by executive producer Terry Matalas. It would see Captain Seven of Nine in command of the U.S.S. Enterprise-G alongside Jack Crusher — Picard’s son, who is embarking on his assignment in the field.

Matales has insisted that there are currently no plans to develop Star Trek: Legacy, noting that Paramount has enough series in the works as it is.
