It’s been sixteen years since we saw Patrick Stewart in the Star Trek franchise, but speculation is now running wild that the actor could be set for a guest-starring role in CBS All Access’ Star Trek: Discovery.

The source of all the excitement is a brief interview from Red Carpet News, where Stewart was asked whether he’d seen the latest iteration of the franchise and responded: “No, I haven’t. But I may have good course to look at it very soon.”

However, Stewart’s comments are far from confirmation of an appearance, so we’ll just have to keep our fingers crossed…

Enterprise Captain Christopher Pike, Alan van Sprang (Shadowhunters) as Section 31 agent Leland and Tig Notaro (One Mississippi) as Chief Engineer Denise Reno of the U.S.S. Hiawatha.
