As the Picard TV series was officially announced as being titled Star Trek: Picard recently, interest has certainly sprung up around the man himself. The fact that the series is clearly focusing specifically on the character of Picard is interesting, but there is a factor that many have failed to take into account. The naming convention of Star Trek shows is usually tied to the titular ship of the series, as is the case with Star Trek: Voyager, Star Trek: Discovery and Star Trek: Enterprise, or the primary setting, as is the case with Deep Space Nine. Could the fact that this new series is titled Star Trek: Picard suggest that the TNG Captain is now commanding a ship named after himself?
Well, perhaps not. After all, Jean-Luc Picard’s debut series, Star Trek: The Next Generation, breaks the consistent naming trend and the fact that Patrick Stewart announced the return of Captain Picard as the primary focus of the series, it is likely that this new spinoff will also break the tradition. However, it would certainly be interesting to see what the future holds for Captain Picard, and he is certainly a deserving candidate for having a ship named after him. As for the actual logo itself, it is stylised very well, and the fact that the show is named Star Trek: Picard is perhaps what everyone expected, so fans are satisfied – for now.
