Star Trek: Picard Season Three featuring the return of the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation is just a few short weeks away! We are learning a lot about what's coming--but so much is left to speculate about! Not least of which is the villains (or at least one of them) that has been reveal: Vadic played by Amanda Plummer. So, who is this person? Why does she appear to want vengeance against our heroes? And who are those bird-like aliens next to her? She appears to be aboard a raptor-esque starship called the Shrike, which itself has its targets set on the U.S.S. Titan!
But the big question is: who is Vadic? We have no inside info, but we are good at speculating, guessing and just plain making up weird theories! Warning, there could be spoilers...probably not.
Anij after a catastrophic incident in the Briar Patch.
Picard’s mom, who was actually abducted by aliens who faked her death. Surprise! She too, was one of the Travelers and always watching out for Picard from a distance.
A forgotten Enterprise-D crewmember who was taken by the Schisms aliens.
It’s Picard’s Kataanian wife, Eline, from "Inner Life" who has traveled through time from the Mirror Universe!
Actual Picard from an alternate universe where gender is flipped.
Picard’s long-lost sister, Jean-Marie Picard. (We made that person up. At least the other actually existed in some context)
Picard’s wife from the Nexus in “Generations”. She was a construct of what Picard envisioned as an ideal reality, right? So, logically, she would have to be based on someone Picard actually knew.
Commander Nella Daren from “Lessons”. Sadly, actress Wendy Hughes passed away in 2014, but maybe the character experienced something catastrophic and is now looking for vengeance against her kinda-boyfriend one Jean-Luc Picard!
A Bandi from the planet Deneb IV in “Encounter at Farpoint”. Years after the Enterprise visited and freed the alien lifeform they had forced to become their starbase, Deneb V crashed into Deneb IV, leaving it a wreck of a world. Starfleet thought Deneb IV was destroyed, but no it was just turned to a desert wasteland. Now, one of the survivors is angry and coming after Picard and the Federation.
Vadic is someone we’ve never met before but is related to or associated with someone or something that is both connected to Picard personally and to the Federation in a way that harkens back to the TV series.
Do you think any of these are spot on? Or did we leave our targeting sensors to drift a little off the mark?
