Seven Of Nine played by Jeri Ryan

Being assimilated by the Borg was a significant event in Picard’s life. So, it would only make sense for him to relate to and find a kindred spirit in another character to have successfully come back from being a Borg, Seven of Nine, a character from Star Trek: Voyager.

Life after being a Borg resulted in some juicy storylines for both Seven and Picard in their respective shows. So, it only makes sense for both of these characters to have found each other, and in some capacity become friends. Maybe even share a father-daughter dynamic between them.

The inclusion of Jeri Ryan in Season 4 of Voyager is credited as having single-handedly saved the show during a slump in their ratings, much to the chagrin of the other cast members. So, while a Voyager reunion may seem unlikely, there would be a lot to explore with these two characters, given their own individual back stories.

Jeri Ryan went on to have a very successful career post-Voyager, most recently seen in the TV series Bosch.

Geordie La Forge played by LeVar Burton

La Forge was the young and resourceful Engineer who always had a super professional relationship with Picard. So, it would be very interesting to see the two characters who didn’t share much chemistry together during the run of TNG, become best buddies in their older age.

Picard may have enlisted the help of the best engineer he knows to help him with the machinery for his Vineyard (which he always wanted to open after retirement) and after spending that much time with one another, their friendship bloomed. An older Geordie would also be more relaxed and casual around his former boss, maybe even finally seeing him as an equal.

Like Stewart, Burton is very much a working acting, especially in geek fandom circles, making many cameos in hit TV-series like The Big Bang Theory and Community, as well as championing his own causes like Reading Rainbow. Burton returning to Star Trek is a very strong possibility, if he was approached with an offer.
