What happens to the TNG characters now?
 
For TOS, we know that Kirk died on the planet, by helping Picard defeat Soren. We know that, the last we saw anyhow, Spock was on Romulus. And we also know, again, the last we saw, that Scotty had retired to a colony, and that McCoy was still alive in the 24th century and was an Admiral.

But what of the TNG characters? If there are to be no more TNG movies or TV series, then shouldn't the characters get an official send-off? Or at least some kind of closure?

Should Picard be part of the Admiralty, or an Ambassador? Should Geordi eventually be a Starfleet Captain? The same too with Worf (or a high rank in the Klingon Empire)? Should Riker also be an Admiral? Deanna have a high role in Starfleet Medical, along with Beverly?

I really reckon that Paramount should consider some made for TV movies. It would at least present a chance to close off the characters.

Why...really?

Picard: (lying at bottom of a ravine) "muttered"
Captain of the Enterprise G: "Ambassador Picard..."
Picard: *grinning* Jean-Luc. Please call me Jean-Luc
Captain of the Enterprise G: Is there anything I can do for you?
Picard: (struggles to sit up but gives up) Earl Grey....Hot....Oh My.

You need to download the "made for web" comic prequel to Star Trek. It explains the destruction of Romulus, Nero turning evil, Data returning, Picard moving onto becoming an ambassador and even Worf dying.

Read the TNG relaunch novels if you really want to know more about what happens to the crew after Nemesis.

^Er, yeah.. the last time we saw Spock was when he got thrown back into an alternate 23rd century. Did the OP miss that memo? ;)

Picard = Captain, Enterprise E, married to Beverly CMO, with child on way
Riker = Captain, Titan, married to Troi Counsellor, with child born
Data = dead
Worf = Enterprise First Officer - kinda like Wolverine with better back story
Geordie = hoping, still hoping for love.

I dunno about that, because we are in an alternate timeline now, so it would be hard to go back to those days.

No it wouldn't. That's the beauty of an alternate timeline.

I think what he means is that that's where public interest largely is at the moment.

From the end of Nemesis point of view

Captain Picard: Still Captain of The Enterprise E, likely assigned in a diplomatic capacity in relation to Romulus

Riker: Captain of the Titan, on his first mission

Data: Ambigious, its possible Data's neutral net does indeed overwrite B4's and thus Data could be back, perhaps as the Enterprise E's first officer (as he was said to be Riker's successor at the beginning of NEM by Picard)

La forge: Still Chief Engineer on Enterprise E, its possible that he might have been promoted to full commander

Worf: Likely standing in as Enterprise E's tactical officer, until he's reassigned

Troi: Married to Riker, Counseller on Titan

Dr Crusher: Either still the CMO of Enterprise E or perhaps she left to take up a post in Starfleet Medical once again

Wesley Crusher: LT JG on the Titan as an engineering officer if we take NEM's deleted scene as canon (which is likely, why leave it out?)

Dr Pulaski: Probably still at Starfleet Medical, or maybe living with Kyle Riker!?! :P

Guinan: Probabl still tending the bar on the Enteprise E

Nurse Ogawa: Probably still on the Enterprise E

Reg Barclay: Probably still working on the Pathfinder Project


I think that covers just about everyone prominantly featured

She survived. On the E, they call that lounge "The Happy Bottom Riding Club". I see this as meaning they moved the lounge to the bottom of the ship.;)

Not like it's stopped him before.

Picard gets sucked through a black hole and helps nuKirk defeat nuKhan, but ends up getting crushed to death by a collapsing walkway.
