Picard will never be recast - the hard core fans would accept no substitute, and the general public would never be interested in a TNG reboot because ol' JL isn't a hip, swingin' brawler. Thank Zeus!
I suspect the same thing would have been said of Kirk a few years ago.
And the most iconic Trek character of them all, Spock. Now played by Zachary Quinto.

Since Charles Xavier from the X-Men movies is basically Picard in a wheelchair with telepathy, and they replaced Patrick Stewart with James McAvoy in the prequel X-Men: First Class, I say the Picard character can definitely live on without Patrick Stewart.
