Riker appeared all through the third season of “Star Trek: Picard,” and one of many dramatic subplots concerned his reconciliation from his spouse Deanna Troi (Marina Sirtis). The 2 had grow to be uncomfortable of their relationship because the demise of their younger son, and it could take a kidnapping and an excessive fight state of affairs to convey them shut once more. Within the present’s last scenes, they even discuss going to Florida on their trip, a tough feat, seeing as Florida was destroyed again in the course of the occasions of “Star Trek: Enterprise.”
With their relationship ostensibly patched, Frakes would like to see Riker and Troi again collectively once more and concerned within the motion. Seven of 9 stands out as the captain of the Enterprise-G, however, as Frakes sees it, Riker must be there to helm a starship of his personal. He stated:
“The Rikers’ marriage is again on monitor. In my thoughts, for the present to have the ability to transfer ahead, Riker must be a captain and have his ship, or he could be promoted to admiral and be a liaison. I am solely half-kidding once I say it could be nice for me if the present carries on and I am like Charlie from ‘Charlie’s Angels.’ They’d have to return to my workplace sooner or later every week for a gathering with Riker. That’d be excellent. Then I may direct a bunch of the episodes and be across the present.”
This all feels a mite cheeky on Frakes’ half, and he could solely be half-serious. He is been recognized to make comparable ideas for himself previously.
