Star Trek should avoid doing a Seven of Nine and Raffi spin-off series

There is talk of a Star Trek: Picard spin-off involving Seven of Nine and Raffi. Star Trek seems to be on the right track with its newest shows Star Trek: Prodigy and Star Trek: Strange New Worlds. The latest in the series, Strange New Worlds, is not only getting rave reviews from critics and fans alike but it’s also doing very well among non-fans, as it’s quickly become the most anticipated new streaming show going. The formula of successful Star Trek franchises has not changed since the 1960s, and Strange New Worlds‘ proves that. Yet, those in charge of Star Trek are still trying to disprove what works by pushing for a Star Trek: Picard spinoff show featuring Seven of Nine and Raffi.

Did Star Trek: Picard EP drop a major hint about Raffi and Seven of Nine?

Star Trek: Picard concludes next season on Parmount+. Star Trek: Picard fans have been vocal about wanting a spinoff series with Raffi (Michelle Hurd) and Seven of Nine (Jeri Ryan) once the series concludes next year. Even Jonathan Del Arco got on board with the idea and included Orla Brady in his pitch. Raffi and Seven of Nine have evolved over the past two seasons, and fans could see the pair headlining a show of their own.

Raffi and Seven of Nine have an action-packed storyline ahead in Star Trek: Picard

Raffi and Seven of Nine return in Star Trek: Picard season three. Star Trek: Picard season two just came to a close, but we’re already looking forward to the third season even though it means the end. And potentially the last time we’ll see Admiral Jean-Luc Picard. But before that can happen, there will be plenty of episodes that not only involve the Star Trek: The Next Generation cast but fan favorites Michelle Hurd who portrays Raffi and Jeri Ryan, who plays Seven of Nine.

Star Trek: Picard's Michelle Hurd on Raffi's Redemption, Returning TNG Cast, and the Punk on the Bus

Arguably none of Star Trek: Picard's cast of characters is as conflicted and complex as Raffi Musiker, played by Michelle Hurd. In Star Trek: Picard's second season (and the tie-in audio drama), Hurd and co-star Jeri Ryan have developed the relationship between Raffi and Seven of Nine first hinted at in the season one finale. The show's most recent episode, "Mercy," illuminated the complexities of Raffi's relationship with surrogate son Elnor (Evan Evagora). A flashback revealed that she subtly manipulated him into remaining at Starfleet Academy before his death earlier this season. The guilt she still carries drives her on her mission to correct the timeline.

Singing songs to your kids is, of course, wonderful. But, sometimes, if you’re singing “traditional” nursery rhymes, the lyrics can feel like a rabbit hole into horror. Thought about the lyrics of “Three Blind Mice” lately? Does your sweet little one need to be thinking about these poor mice getting their tails chopped off?

Star Trek: Picard: Jeri Ryan, Michelle Hurd Reveal the State of Seven and Raffi's Relationship in Season 2

Star Trek: Picard introduced Michelle Hurd as Raffi Musiker, a former Starfleet officer instrumental in orchestrating the Romulan resettlement program alongside Jean-Luc Picard. The first season of the series also brought back Jeri Ryan as Seven of Nine, the former Borg drone introduced in Star Trek: Voyager. As a member of the Fenris Rangers, Seven often butted heads with Picard, which made the finale's reveal of her new romance with Raffi all the more surprising. As such a late reveal, fans have only seen the first hint of Raffi and Seven's relationship, though it's explored further in the Star Trek: Picard audio drama No Man's Land, starring Hurd and Ryan. Both actors are eager for fans to see where the relationship goes in Picard's second season and are grateful for how the show's writers have crafted it.

‘Star Trek: Picard’: Jeri Ryan And Michelle Hurd Discuss Seven And Raffi’s “Easy” Romantic Relationship

When it comes to romance on Star Trek, nothing is easy. Whether you’re dealing with alien planets, rogue anomalies, Borg invasions, or anything else, something always gets in the way of the characters having a smooth time in the romantic department. Unless, of course, you’re Star Trek: Picard‘s Seven of Nine (Jeri Ryan) and Raffi (Michelle Hurd).
