A few thoughts on where things go from here: I know it’s still an open question whether “Legacy” will happen, but I don’t think Paramount allows the mid-credits scene teasing Jack and Q if they weren’t leaning in the direction of doing more with these characters. They could have easily either not included it or just used that time to advertise the SNW teaser. My guess/hope is that the Enterprise-G will be drastically changed by the next time we see her if they do go ahead with “Legacy.” I’m thinking that they’ll fast forward some years down the road, Jack will be a Lieutenant, and maybe the Enterprise will have undergone another refit (e.g, my personal hope is that they would attempt to make it more like a somewhat smaller 25th century Galaxy Class). I would also hope that any potential show will follow the Strange New Worlds format; episodic stories with maybe a light, underlying overarching bigger picture story that’s touched on each episode. From interviews, Matalas has said that it would be interesting to deal with the consequences of this incident and compared it to “The Snap” in the MCU. That both Starfleet and Earth would probably be going through a period of reassessment after the losses and the affect on the younger generation. Even though, we don’t get any indication of it, but I would have to guess that Jack would face the same backlash and feelings of being ostracized by many that Picard has endured since being assimilated and partially blamed for the Borg invasion. And since we know from season 1, there was a bigotry against xBs, there’s the potential for that to now extend to an entire generation of Starfleet.
