Interviews | Patrick Stewart
Accepting Picard

Picture Well Iím not sure they did to begin with. I think there was a lot of resistance to the idea of a new Star Trek series from those who had been fans of the original series.

Kirk and Spock, McCoy and the rest had become such legendary figures that there was a sense that they were somehow going to be debased, devalued by having a new series.
