There is little doubt that Star Trek: Picard Season 2 will feature more adventures for Jean-Luc Picard. But how about a throwback to old adventures that Trekkies have never seen before? A new report suggests that CBS All Access should consider developing a series that could explore young Picard's days while he was commanding the Stargazer.

Before he became the captain of the Enterprise, Picard first took command of the Stargazer for more than two decades. Although his experience on the previous ship was teased upon in Star Trek: The Next Generation, fans have never really seen the young Picard in action quite yet. However, Red Shirts Always Die points out that this could be an awesome premise for a possible new Star Trek show.

But who could possibly portray the young Picard in a series that focuses on his adventures on the Stargazer? Patrick Stewart's X-Men: Days of Future Past co-star James McAvoy has already made it clear that he is claiming the role in whatever project comes his way. Although he pointed out that he has his eye on being a guest on Picard Season 2, McAvoy probably wouldn't mind playing the character in a series of his own. Casting young Picard shouldn't be a problem so now it's just up to CBS All Access to consider the idea.

Do you think young Picard should get his own series focusing on his time on the Stargazer? Should James McAvoy get cast as the younger version of the character? Sound off in the comments below.
