While Spiner’s presence in “Star Trek: Picard” season 3 has been reported for some time, the NYCC panel and accompanying trailer reveal that he will be returning as Lore, as opposed to the three. other characters he played. Another piece of unstable technology that ended up working by the time “Star Trek: The Next Generation” ended, Lore was essentially a brother to Data, and a villain at the time. It’s unlikely that Lore’s return won’t be a peaceful one.
Moriarty, meanwhile, appears at the end of today’s trailer, saying, “Hello… old friends” before grabbing an old-fashioned pistol and pointing it away from the screen. Presumably, this means that the Holmes character is unhappy with the crew he might consider his longtime captors.
The third season of “Star Trek: Picard” is set to be a pivotal reunion of the 24th Century Enterprise crew. In April, a teaser confirmed that the entire team would reunite, including Spiner, Burton, Gates McFadden, Jonathan Frakes, Marina Sirtis and Michael Dorn. The “Star Trek: Picard” season will premiere on Paramount+ on February 16, 2023.
