In Star Trek: Picard season 3, Dr. Beverly Crusher (Gates McFadden) returns with a new, unidentified son, while her other son, Wesley Crusher (Wil Wheaton), disappears. The events of Star Trek: Nemesis led to Beverly’s disappearance, as explained in “The Next Generation,”
the premiere episode of Picard’s third season. In her first scene back, Beverly holds off a group of alien invaders with a ferocious phaser fight, suggesting that she has matured over the years. After the good doctor was injured at the start of season 3, she made a desperate distress call to Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart).
In order to find Beverly, Picard enlists the aid of Captain William Riker (Jonathan Frakes), and the two of them take over the USS Titan-A, Riker’s former command, with the help of the ship’s First Officer, Seven of Nine (Jeri Ryan), much to the chagrin of the Titan’s new commanding officer,
Captain Liam Shaw (Todd Stashwick). Picard steals a shuttle from the Titan and finds Beverly in a medical stasis pod with a young man who claims to be her son (Ed Speleers). The episode ends with the young man claiming he and his companions have been on the run from unknown attackers. Dr. Crusher’s son’s identity has been revealed, but many questions remain, the most pressing of which concerns Wesley.
Is There Another Son In Beverly’s Family And Does Wesley Know About Him?
It is stated in “The Next Generation” that Beverly has not spoken to Picard, Riker, Deanna Troi (Marina Sirtis), or Geordi La Forge (LeVar Burton) in decades, but it is not made clear what has become of her relationship with Wesley.
The fact that Wesley appears to have such impressive control over his time and space travels suggests he could contact his mother whenever he felt the urge, but he also suggests he no longer considers himself the human Wesley Crusher, but rather a being on a higher plane of existence. As a member of the Travelers, it’s unclear whether or not Wesley still has human wants and needs.
However, even if Beverly hasn’t told Wesley about his brother, it’s possible that he already knows. Wesley the Traveler appears to have a unique perspective on the world, one that isn’t omniscient but does have a deeper understanding of the nature of things.
Even if he’s never met his brother in person, it seems safe to assume that he accepts the fact that he exists. Seeing how Wesley reacts to his mysterious new sibling as part of the new Crusher family dynamic would still be interesting.
Wheaton Is Having A Separate Reunion
Nearly the entire cast from The Next Generation is back for this season, including fan favorites like Brent Spiner, Jonathan Frakes, LeVar Burton, Michael Dorn, Gates McFadden, and Marina Sirtis. To date, John De Lancie and Whoopi Goldberg have made guest appearances on Picard, making them the first members of the cast of The Next Generation to return to their roles alongside Stewart in the Paramount+ series.
Wheaton has said that he feels like he’s still a part of the Star Trek family even though he won’t be reprising his role on the series because of CBS’ Star Trek aftershow Ready Room, on which he and other former cast members discuss the latest episodes and storylines from Star Trek shows like Discovery,
Picard, Prodigy, and Lower Decks. While it may not be exactly what fans had hoped for, having him talk to the cast about their reprisals in the aftershow will keep him in line with Picard Season 3.
Wil Wheaton has kept himself busy after Star Trek: The Next Generation ended by writing books, blogging, and hosting radio and podcast shows. The audiobook versions of Ready Player One and Ready Player Two both feature his narration.
In Season 3 Of Star Trek: Picard, Will Wesley Crusher Make An Appearance?
Despite the third season of Star Trek: Picard being billed as a reunion of the cast of The Next Generation, original and long-time cast member Wesley is conspicuously absent. This is not entirely unexpected, considering that Wesley’s role in the later TNG seasons was limited to a few cameos.
Wesley did not appear in any of the TNG movies beyond a brief, uncredited cameo in the box office bomb Star Trek: Nemesis. After his time on Star Trek, Wheaton primarily focused on voice acting and hosting television shows. Particularly, he is known for hosting The Ready Room, Paramount+’s Star Trek after the show.
Star Trek: Picard season 2 finale “Farewell” featured a cameo appearance from Wesley that had been kept under wraps until its release. Even though Wesley hasn’t been explicitly linked to Picard season 3, it’s not out of the question that he makes a similar cameo appearance toward the season finale.
Despite the fact that Wesley Crusher’s career has taken a different turn than that of his fellow TNG alums, it would be moving to see him reunite with his old friends for the final time on Star Trek: Picard.
Wheaton revealed why he left Star Trek in a post from his old blog from the 2000s, and he said, “I left Star Trek because it was seriously interfering with my career in feature films.” This was not because of criticism from fans, but rather from those working on the show.
