    I don't know about Hurd and Raffi, but iirc one of Chabon's instagram answer sessions told us that he came up with a list of two syllable Spanish surnames for Rios and then asked Cabrera to pick the one he liked best, so the implication of that is that the actors were given at least some input to their character names.

    There is also the odd trivia of Raffi Musiker being just "R...iker" with the addition of some letters in between. That perhaps her name was intended to subconsciously remind the viewers of Picard's relationship with his Number One and that she was a continuation of that. If there's any credence to this, then Musiker was probably chosen by Chabon specificaly because of the "iker" ending and not with any input from Hurd.

    My guess is that John de Lancie "crashes the party" mid-panel.

    So Q in Season 2

    And I'm guessing time related shenanigans.

    OK, after SPS' special announcement, Q is definitely in!
    "The trial never ends." (de Lancie voice.)
    And possibly time travel.

    ETA: ninja'd!

    They haven't uploaded the BTS parts from before the teaser
    I hope someone was recording...

    There looked like an Admiral giving Picard a badge or something.

    Ruining Q wouldn't be hard to do after VOY.

    I can't wait for Q's first reaction about Picard now being in a Synth body.
