Picard was guessing, Jack didn't confirm or deny.
If Terry wrote that expository dialogue in to explain it, it's accurate.
Plus Picard did"the math." He knows (as confirmed onscreen) when Jack was conceived.
I don't particularly care that things don't add up quite right if he's 23-24, but the fact remains, that'd mean he was born around 2377-2378, which doesn't mesh with Nemesis being set in 2379.
Damn that Warpfield time dilation effect...
Great interview for this weeks Ready room with the actor who plays Captain Shaw .
Or Pic S3 takes place later than some suggest.
The other thing is Jack was drinking at that bar 5 years before Pic S3. It certainly implies that he was an adult 5 years ago, and possibly 23-24 now.
Ed Speleers looks younger on Picard than he did on Outlander a few years ago.
Terry said it takes place in 2401, and also admitted that Jack's age doesn't make sense.
Seems par for the course.
Now I'm wondering who Worfs handler is....only one that springs to mind isTuvok?
Why does that imply anything. We have no reference of a drinking age in the 24th or 25 century. Or even if Jack would have been drinking real alcohol. Certainly we know they have alternatives to real alcohol.
My suspects include Bashir, Moriarty (le twist), and New Person.
Tuvok is an interesting guess, too.
I think whomever they are is actually a changeling infiltrator. Trying to keep them off the trail.
Yeah kind of like Worf's 9-year-old son Alexander serving as the weapons officer on a Klingon bird of prey during the Dominion War in season 6 of DS9.
Michelle Yeoh. (I kid).
Picard is pushing 100 -- forgive the man for not being quick on mental subtraction.
Ro Laren or Garak
I don't think it will be Garak (though I'd welcome it to be sure).
Ro, though - I'm surprised I didn't think of her, myself. That'd be rad.
Same here. The movie Picnic had a 37 year old William Holden playing early to mid 20's. Holden was a very Hard looking 37 at the time. He could have passed for 40's easily. The movie went on to be nominated for several academy awards. Even best picture.
Ed most definitely can pass for 23/24
I love that this is bothering so many people yet I heard less complaints about the stupid funhouse Turbolift and the 4 Nostril, Golden, Bald headed Klingons dressed like Asgardians.
If Worf's handler has to be someone that we already know, then I would think that the best bet would be Bashir. Given his experiences dealing and working with Section 31, I can totally see him being recruited by Starfleet intelligence.
