Star Trek: Picard will be entering its third and final season soon, with many cast members from The Next Generation returning. Next Generation star Denise Crosby will be one of the returning stars for Star Trek: Picard, reprising her role as Tasha Yar.
Considering how nostalgia is at an all-time high, getting Denise Crosby back for Star Trek: Picard Season 3 isn’t a huge surprise. But how will Tasha Yar be re-introduced in Star Trek: Picard Season 3? And how many other stars from The Next Generation are returning?
Tasha Yar is returning to Star Trek: Picard…with a twist?
According to a fan who attended Star Trek Las Vegas, it was announced that Denise Crosby would be returning as Tasha Yar for Star Trek: Picard. However, the announcement was just a teaser, with Crosby not wanting to spoil fans with the details.
“I don’t want to give away too much,” Crosby said (via TrekMovie). “But I’m going to tell you that you will see Tasha Yar, but I’m not going to tell you how. You got to watch.”
This has already spawned several humorous comments on Reddit, with one user claiming we’ll see her evil sister Yasha Tor. Others also claimed that we would see the character killed offscreen, which would be a very disappointing result for Star Trek fans.
More Next Generation stars returning?
It will be interesting to see which characters from The Next Generation appear in Star Trek: Picard Season 3. Now that we know Tasha Yar is coming back, this should open up the possibilities for more characters from that show.
We’ve already received hints of more characters from The Next Generation coming to Picard’s final season. All fans need is a trailer that will tease the characters appearing in the final season and that should get people talking.
Star Trek: Picard Season 3 is set to hit Paramount+ sometime next year.
