    Wow that is amazing! Has it been published before? I have never seen it. They need to make a Star Trek planetary map book for all of the major planets! :luvlove:

    This map specifically was made for Picard Season 2, that's why I posted it here.

    It is based off a map Robert Hewitt Wolfe drew for the DS9's writers room

    Which was also partly created by Geoffrey Mandel for the 2003 Star Charts book

    I have to say, I'm left wondering why almost all Bajorans are light-skinned given the capital seems to be in the tropics.

    Maybe the Bajoran sun puts out less UV than our sun however.

    Gotta appreciate how the oceans are purple like Kira said in "Past Tense, Part I(DS9)." Nice touch!

    Matalas talks season 3.

    Okay, this discussion now has me intrigued for season 3. Except…

    … for the mention of no O’Brien. That makes me sad.

    Regardless, Matalas seems genuinely excited about this. Enough so it’s infectious.

    He also hints he may be working on more Trek after Picard finishes.

    It's a really informative interview and I'm much more enthusiastic for season 3 than I was before after having mixed feelings about the second season.

    I'm most intrigued by this comment:

    From what I've seen on Twitter most people are guessing Ro Laren. I'm pretty sure Michelle Forbes has said in the past she had no desire to return to Star Trek whatsoever, but I guess anybody can change their mind.

    As far other TNG characters that could reappear that would be enough to get him excited, my guesses would probably be Denise Crosby (as Sela?) or Dwight Shultz. They've already done Hugh, Guinan, Q and Wesley.

    Ro Laren? Michelle Forbes is still a working actress and we haven't seen her since she defected to the Maquis in "Preemptive Strike(TNG)." That's been 28 years.

    While season 2 wasn’t great, I was frustrated at dumping most of the key Picard cast for the TNG cast. I was beginning to really enjoy them and their journey. This felt like a nostalgic choice and it still largely is. But checking in on more than JUST the TNG cast interests me.

    Even if no Miles O’Brien.

    But Ro was the first character that came to mind. When it was stated it wasn’t the Chief.

    Yeah I'm thinking Ro too! But he's also hinted some other characters and I'm really hoping we get someone from DS9 but sadly it won't be O'Brien. Not surprising though. Colm Meany lives in Europe now and is always working so he probably wasn't available.

    I believe he did imply on Twitter we may see non-TNG characters in season 3 as well

    Another character I’d love to see who would be a fascinating glimpse into a larger part of the Trek universe: Garak.

    Which would be a perfect opportunity to bring in an older Dr. Bashir.

    Since Alex Sidding learned to act and evolved into an excellent actor some time after DS9 finished, I would be very interested in a return of Bashir.

    One time in one of his Sid City streaming meetups he said he'd definitely consider returning for PIC if they can give him a story for Bashir he felt was worth returning for. He's been open about the possibility since PIC launched.

    Bashir is probably one of the best Trek characters, next to Pike. I'd enjoy seeing him back.
