    I actually think that Whoopi would be a good idea...that clicks with me more than any of the main-credits TNG regulars.

    Yeah, me too. Guinan is someone that I'd expect to still have contact with Picard even in situations with no starfleet involvement.

    And James McAvoy as Picard's sons.

    It's weird. I want to see the old gang in some way, but I think it will distract from the series unless it is 1 or 2 people.

    That logic is infallible, yet I still want to see the whole crew. Can they give us a fanwank special after the show concludes? Maybe Picard's Re-retirement party or something like that. With the exception of Chekov, all TOS main characters had some follow up later in their lives or in some cases deaths. Why shouldn't TNG get similar and have some of that happen in Picard? My desire for a fanwank happy ending is conflicting with my higher reasoning skills. I know it will be lame, but I am not so secretly hoping for it.

    De Lancie, Spiner, and Goldberg all play ageless characters, and have noticeably aged in the last 20-some years. While explanations can be made, I would rather not have them appear (or appearances kept brief) than going into a convoluted explanation of their appearance.

    Ensign Harry Kim as Starfleet C-in-C.

    The only guest actor I can think of right now that the show absolutely needs is, of course, Samantha Eggar.

    Q can look however he wants. Forgot about Guinan's aging though :/

    Guinan isn't ageless, just very long lived. And who knows, maybe her species goes through a phase of rapid aging. Yoda was fine in TESB (at 800), but suddenly a couple years later in ROTJ he's on his deathbed... (when suddenly he's 900!).

    As for Q, one piece of dialogue can explain his aging, as I posted earlier:

    Maybe it'll be like this: people driving Picard around to the store.

    In TESB, Yoda said that he'd been training Jedi for 800 years. We may have been around 100 when he started training them.

    The Horta...with a much more advanced budget (I'm half serious).
