Picard Showrunner Shares Alternate Shaw/Seven of Nine Scene

Star Trek Picard showrunner Terry Matalas shared an alternate scene from Season 3 featuring Captain Liam Shaw and Cmdr. Seven of Nine on the Titan.


It’s difficult to dispute that the third and final season of Star Trek: Picard may be the pinnacle of the Paramount+ era. One of the reasons for this is not only the inclusion of franchise veterans like stars Patrick Stewart and Jeri Ryan, but also the return of the beloved Next Generation cast and the introduction of new cast members, particularly the U.S.S. Titan-A Captain Liam Shaw portrayed by Todd Stashwick. A large part of the credit goes to showrunner Terry Matalas, who previously collaborated with Stashwick on Star Trek: Enterprise and SYFY’s 12 Monkeys. Matalas recently shared an extended version of a scene featuring Shaw, wherein Shaw finally addresses his former first officer by her preferred name, “Seven of Nine.”

Star Trek: Todd Stashwick’s and Jeri Ryan’s Seven of Nine Scene

The scene is set with the Federation fleet, including the Titan, being overwhelmed by the Borg. The Borg have assimilated anyone under the age of 25 using DNA extracted from Jean-Luc Picard’s original body. The remaining crew members, including Shaw, Seven, and Raffi (Michelle Hurd), are fighting against the Borg. Shaw is fatally wounded in the crossfire. In the original scene, his final words to Seven are, “It’s not my ship anymore. It’s yours… you have the conn… Seven of Nine.” In the alternate scene, the final line is changed to “It’s yours… don’t touch my stuff… Seven of Nine.” While the alternate line aligns with Shaw’s humor, the decision was made to stick with the original line.

The catalyst for the events in motion is an encoded distress signal sent by the former chief medical officer of the U.S.S. Enterprise D, Dr. Beverly Crusher (Gates McFadden), to her former captain, who is now an admiral. In her message, Crusher advises against involving Starfleet, so Jean-Luc enlists the help of his former first officer, Cmdr. Will Riker, and together they join the crew of the Titan. They also have a special contact in First Officer Seven, but their mission remains a secret. As the season progresses, the crew reunites and unravels a Changeling conspiracy that leads directly to the Borg.
