Star Trek: 10 Next Generation Characters We Hope Get Their Own Spin-Off

Star Trek: The Next Generation gave us unforgettable characters, and with Captain Picard getting his own spin-off, here's hoping the others do too.

Star Trek fans are over-the-moon about the announcement of a Captain Picard-centric Star Trek: The Next Generation spin-off. We haven't seen Patrick Stewart in the commanding role of Captain Jean-Luc Picard since Star Trek: Nemesis, and Star Trek: Picard is easily one of the most anticipated shows of the year.

Even though Stewart has warned us that "He may not be the Jean-Luc that you recognise and know so well," we can't wait to see him in the show that he says he's signed on to star in for multiple seasons. We also can't help but fantasize about what other spin-offs featuring different TNG characters might look like.

10 Geordi LaForge

Burton has said that his favorite episodes were the ones featuring Holodek adventures, like the Holmes and Watson episodes for Data and Geordi and the Robin Hood episode, so how fun would it be to create a series based on something like this for Geordi? Think of the possible crossovers with all the media made sense then. We're thinking Geordi meets The Doctor, at least!

9 Deanna Troi

A show in which Deanna has aged and is serving as a peace ambassador somehow would be incredible just so we could see Marina Sirtis again.

8 Miles And Keiko O'Brien

How about an O'Briens special where the couple gets another chance to show their sweeter moments? An adventure about a married couple in space could be so much fun. Scarlet Witch and Vision are getting their own series, so why not?

7 Data

Brent Spiner is one of the best actors in the entire series, but there would have to be some serious CGI going on if he were to return to play Data, since androids don't age. Then again, it's 2019, so who is to say that there's not some program to make him age to that of his Enterprise family?

6 Wesley Crusher

What ever happened to the Wunderkind who followed "The Traveler," and what mysteries of the universe did he solve? Even if Wesley is the least favorite character for many people (and perhaps the first crush for others), his own series makes the most sense, since there are so many questions about what happened to him that we need answered.

5 Q

Like Data, Q has an aging issue since he's immortal, and like Brent Spiner, John de Lancie is 70 years old. That may not translate well for a show, but nothing is impossible when it comes to Star Trek.

4 Wiliam Riker

Patrick Stewart as Picard and Jonathan Frakes as Riker in Star Trek Next Generation

Whether that means a series as a more seasoned captain aboard the USS Titan or a prequel about his younger and most assuredly cockier days, the show would still be fun to see. It might also be entertaining to see what shenanigans he and Troi got up to once they were married.

3 Guinan

Whoopi Goldberg could still play the alien in her 60s, especially if this series is even farther in the future. A prequel featuring the other "listeners" of El-Auria and what happened to them before the Borg invasion would also be really cool to see. Or there could be a series about the "listeners" re-establishing themselves as a colony in which Guinan gets involved.

2 Beverly Crusher

Crusher and Picard, Attached - Star Trek: The Next Generation

What really needs to be fleshed out is Crusher's incredible potential as a character. Gates McFadden did so well in the role, but she was given limited arcs that should have been expanded instead of being regulated into a background character.

1 Worf

Work Star Trek TNG

Michael Dorn would be excellent reprising the Klingon lead, but some adventures of Worf's younger days would also be interesting to explore, particularly since we've already seen much of his life after TNG. A series about Worf's experiences as the Federation ambassador to Qo'noS might also be neat to see.
