The USS Titan-A’s bridge team in Star Trek: Picard season 3 has actually been exposed by showrunner Terry Matalas, and he dropped some remarkable ideas about the season and the starship’s workers. Admiral Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) reassembles his Star Trek: The Next Generation team to fulfill a brand-new opponent called Captain Vadic (Amanda Plummer). But Picard and Captain William T. Riker (Jonathan Frakes) do not come aboard the USS Enterprise- F. Instead, Star Trek: Picard season 3’s hero ship is the USS TIt an-A.
No matter how effective or highly advanced the USS Titan- A is, a starship is just as great as its team. Picard and Riker sign up with a ship staffed by a brand-new generation of 25th-centuryStarfleet Officers Terry Matalas’ Tweets presented the Titan’s team, which has a number of familiar and friendly faces along for the flight.

The style of the Neo-Constitution (or Constitution III)- class USS Titan- An intentionally stimulates the timeless USS Enterprise commanded by Captain James T. Kirk (William Shatner), which aesthetically connects the generations of Star Trek together. Whether the Titan’s team can increase to the event and show to be among the finest teams in Starfleet is for Star Trek: Picard season 3 to expose, however here’s who’s who on the bridge of the Titan.
6 Commander Seven Of Nine
As the First Officer of the USS Titan- A, the sight of Seven of Nine (Jeri Ryan) formally in Starfleet is a long period of time coming. Seven got a field commission to command the USS Stargazer at the conclusion of Star Trek: Picard season 2. Prior to this, Seven was a Captain in the Fenris Rangers, and she took control of the starship La Sirena in between Picard seasons 1 and 2. Seven as the Titan’s Number One satisfies the dream Admiral Kathryn Janeway (Kate Mulgrew) had for her after Star Trek: Voyager ended.
According to Matalas’ Tweet, Seven was “placed into an accelerated Starfleet program against her own judgment.” This is a curious twist that means Seven’s unwillingness to be in Starfleet and/or be in command after Admiral Picard’s field commission. It tips that Seven is not comfy in her position as the Titan’s Number One, and it’ll be remarkable to see how this plays out.
5 Ensign Sidney La Forge
Ensign Sidney La Forge (Ashlei Sharpe Chestnut) is the USS Titan-A’s helmsman, and she becomes part of the La Forge Starfleet tradition. Sidney is the child of Geordi La Forge (LeVar Burton), the previous Chief Engineer of the USS Enterprise- D and E. Unlike her sibling, Ensign Sidney La Forge (Mica Burton), Sidney didn’t wish to follow her daddy’s steps as an engineer. Matalas notes in his Tweet: “[Sidney] didn’t want to build ships, she wanted to fly them.”
Sidney’s position as a helmsman really does likewise honor her daddy. Geordi piloted the Enterprise- D in Star Trek: The Next Generation season 1 prior to he was changed to end up being Chief Engineer in TNG season 2. So, both Alandra and Sidney are chips off the old La Forge block, after all.
4 Lt Matthew Arliss Mura
Seated opposite helmsman Sidney La Forge at the front station of the bridge isLt Matthew Arliss Mura (Joseph Lee), theTitan’s Tactical Officer Mura is Bajoran with the hallmark ridged nose of his race, which Matalas validated onTwitter Starfleet obviously hasn’t unwinded its guideline on Bajorans using their earrings as Captain Picard provided forLt Ro Laren (Michelle Forbes) on TNG
Matalas Tweeted, Mura “has served on the new Titan for last 3 years and is exactly who you want at that station when you hear ” provide ’em whatever we got!” This is an interesting tidbit revealing the Titan-A has been in service for over 3 years, so it’s not on its maiden voyage in Star Trek: Picard season 3.
3 Lt T’Veen
Lt. T’Veen (Stephanie Czajkowski) is the Titan’s Science Officer, and she is aVulcan Matalas states, “Several Captains fought to have [T’Veen] on their bridge. The Titan won.” This tips that T’Veen will stand out like her Vulcan predecessors asScience Officer Of course, Vulcan Science Officers are a happy Starfleet tradition in their own right, from Spock (Leonard Nimoy), T’Pol (Jolene Blalock), and Tuvok (Tim Russ), who was a Science Officer aboard Captain Hikaru Sulu’s (George Takei) USSExcelsior T’Veen is likewise a bald Vulcan, stimulating those seen in Star Trek: The Motion Picture and Star Trek III: The Search for Spock.
2 Ensign Kova Rin Esmar
Ensign Kova Rin Esmar (Jim Maley) is the Titan-A’s Communications Officer Esmar is a Hailiian, a telepathic and compassionate race that debuted in the Star Trek: The Next Generation season 6 episode, “Aquiel.” Many Haliians have actually served in Starfleet, however Matalas exposes Esmar, who utilizes They/Them pronouns, “graduated at the top of their class and speak over 72 alien languages.” Even Lt Uhura (Nichelle Nichols) would be impressed with Esmar’s efficiency with languages.
1 Captain Liam Shaw
The Captain of the USS Titan- A is Liam Shaw (Todd Stashwick), who the Star Trek: Picard season 3 trailer currently established as somebody who appears opposed to Admiral Picard and Captain Riker coming aboard his ship. Of course, the Titan was formerly Captain Riker’s command, so there might be some sort of competition in between them. But Shaw mean ridicule, not respect, for Picard, among the living legends of Starfleet, which is definitely curious.
Matalas’ Tweet suggests that Shaw is “a former engineer with a long history within Starfleet.” This is an interesting information because it’s rarely a Starfleet engineer changes tracks to Command and rises to end up being Captain of a starship. This suggests that Shaw is powerful, driven, and enthusiastic. His “long history in Starfleet” seems like a favorable, however maybe there are skeletons in Captain Shaw’s closet too. Regardless, all will be exposed when the USS Titan- A flies in Star Trek: Picard season 3.
Star Trek: Picard Season 3 bests Thursday, February 16, on Paramount+.
