As detailed in Variety, The Borg Queen, a classic “Star Trek” villain from eras past, will reappear in “Picard” Season 2. The character will be portrayed by Annie Wersching, whose past credits include recurring roles in “24,” “The Vampire Diaries,” and “Bosch,” in addition to the voice of Tess in the video game “The Last of Us.”
Upon her appearance in “Picard,” Wersching will become the third person in “Star Trek” history to portray the character. The original incarnation of the Borg Queen was played by Alice Krige in “Star Trek: First Contact,” the second movie in the “Next Generation” series. Then, when the character returned in “Star Trek: Voyager,” Susanna Thompson portrayed her. Finally, when the Borg Queen reappeared in the final episode of “Voyager,” Krige reprised the role.
The particulars of the Borg Queen’s involvement in Season 2 have yet to be revealed, so viewers will have to wait for either a new preview or the upcoming season’s release, on a date that has yet to be announced, to learn more about this latest incarnation of a classic “Star Trek” villain.
