What Is Patrick Stewart's Favorite ‘Star Trek’ Episode?

What Is Patrick Stewart's Favorite ‘Star Trek’ Episode?

The episode in question was written by Morgan Gendel and Peter Allan Fields, where Picard awakes to find himself living in a small village on a non-Federation planet named Kataan. He is a well-known member of the community named Kamin, who is suffering from a delusion of being a starship captain. Whenever Picard talks about his time on the Enterprise, others in the town think he is just suffering ill effects from a raging fever he is trying to recover from. Kamin ends up living out his entire life on Kataan, with scenes of Picard's crew trying to wake him up spliced in throughout the episode.

The episode was quite a departure from the show's normal sci-fi format, serving as the second-to-last episode of Season 4. "Inner Light" is often cited as one of the TV series' best, with another series star, Wil Wheaton, also recently revealed it was his favorite episode as well. "Inner Light" went on to win a Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation not too long after it aired.

‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Photo Welcomes Patrick Stewart to Set

‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Photo Welcomes Patrick Stewart to Set

Yes, Patrick Stewart is confirmed to have arrived on the Montreal set of X-Men: Apocalypse this weekend. But don't get too excited. It doesn't look like he'll be appearing as Charles Xavier (aka Professor X) in any capacity. Instead, it simply looks like he is visiting his old director Bryan Singer. And it sounds like the pair are joining director Jason Reitman for one of his legendary live script reads. No, it's not a rendition of 2000's X-Men. The trio will be enjoying a live reading of the Coen Brothers' classic The Big Lebowski.

Back in January, Patrick Stewart confirmed that neither he nor Ian McKellen would be reprising their roles as Professor X and Magneto in X-Men: Apocalypse. The entirety of the film takes place in 1983, the same weekend Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi opened in theaters. There is no reason for the older versions of these characters to arrive at any point, with James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender portraying their younger dopplegangers.

‘Blunt Talk’ Trailer Starring Patrick Stewart

‘Blunt Talk’ Trailer Starring Patrick Stewart

The Starz Original series Blunt Talk released a first look teaser of the 10-episode first season of the half-hour scripted comedy series from MRC and executive produced by Seth MacFarlane, Jonathan Ames (creator and showrunner), Stephanie Davis and Tristram Shapeero. The teaser will premiere on-air during the Black Sails finale on Saturday, March 28 at 9 PM ET/PT. Set in Los Angeles, the story follows Walter Blunt, a British import intent on conquering the world of American cable news and the fallout from his well-intentioned, but mostly misguided decision-making, both on and off the air. The series will premiere on Starz in the summer of 2015.

Through the platform of his nightly cable news show, Blunt is on a mission to impart his wisdom and guidance on how Americans should live, think and behave. Besieged by network bosses, a dysfunctional news staff, numerous ex-wives and children of all ages, Blunt's only support is the alcoholic manservant he transplanted from the U.K. to join him in Los Angeles. The series is greenlit for a two-season, 20-episode commitment.

Hugh Jackman Wants Professor X in ‘Wolverine 3’

Hugh Jackman Wants Professor X in ‘Wolverine 3’

While the last line of this statement is surely meant to be a joke, the fact that the actor didn't deny Patrick Stewart's involvement is certainly intriguing. 20th Century Fox has already issued a March 3, 2017 release date, with The Wolverine director James Mangold returning to the helm. No story details have been confirmed quite yet, but Hugh Jackman also teased in December that the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse may tie in to Wolverine 3. As you may recall, the end credit sequence in The Wolverine helped set up X-Men: Days of Future Past, so it would make sense that X-Men: Apocalypse would somehow tie into Wolverine 3.

Wolverine 3 comes to theaters March 3rd, 2017.

‘Wolverine 3’ to Team Patrick Stewart with Hugh Jackman?

‘Wolverine 3’ to Team Patrick Stewart with Hugh Jackman?

It's worth noting that the end of last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past set up a whole new timeline for the X-Men franchise, which could be when Wolverine 3 is set. As you may recall, the end of 2013's The Wolverine lead directly into X-Men: Days of Future Past, so it's certainly possible that Wolverine 3 could use the timeline set up at the end of X-Men: Days of Future Past, especially since X-Men: Apocalypse is set during the 1980s. It's possible that Famke Janssen (Jean Grey), James Marsden (Cyclops) and many others from the original X-Men trilogy could return as well. What do you think about these new plot details? Chime in with your thoughts below.

Wolverine 3 comes to theaters March 3rd, 2017.
